They've revamped the submissions page. Newsjackipedia returns for a second series and the pay's gone up a bit!

Probably the usual paranoia but is the auto reply a bit late ?
Oh, and belated happy new year to all

It's ok just got it. That's the first hurdle over

There's something addictive about it. I enjoy the excitement of waiting for the Thursday email even when I know in my heart my contribution was poor and I've next to no chance of getting on.

It is addictive. I have pretty much given up on the Thursday email but I still like trying. Not sure why.

Has anyone ever not submitted a joke because it's probably too obvious only to then see it appear in the episode from someone else's submission? Although I couldn't see the joke mentioned anywhere online, I dropped the below from my submissions today at the last minute.

"A Kansas man has been arrested for assault after a family game of Monopoly ended in a wild brawl. The police released the man without bail, as he was still holding a Get Out of Jail Free card when they picked him up."

It's happened to me once.
