Does anyone order one liners by how good you think they are? ie best one at the top and so on? Just wondering if the first one's rubbish if they lose interest.
I'd always say put your strongest gag at the top of each section (obviously you can't put your best Number Cruncher at the top of the Breaking News section). Think about reading through literally hundreds of these documents, you're going to be very influenced by what you read first and if it's "ok" you're going to sigh a little and read on quickly, if it's "superb" you're going to perk up and pay a little more attention to the others.
I know it's only 6 per document to read but when you multiply that up several hundred times you want to do the best to give yourself the edge.
Of course what you think might be your best and what NJ think your best is might not necessarily be the same!

Interesting stuff. Where does all this info come from?
Incidentally, the only two one liners I've ever had on were both on the opening episodes to new series. If first episodes really are the most popular for submissions, I must have been beating the odds (more than usual).
It's also the case that the script editors change each week so it could be your sense of humour chimes more with the script editors in ep 1. But however you look at it an ep. 1 credit is a very good achievement!
