Busy day, so jokes off early. I have a new writing method, called 'scribbling all over the Metro on the bus'. Why haven't I done this before? You can also doodle on people's faces! Okay, so the stories are slightly stale. Maybe this doesn't matter...

Good luck everyone!

Auditchris, Joe Oakes, Johnnyg323 you are all heroes. Well done!

Nothing for me from the Newsjack team.

But I am through to the final 10 of BBC New Voices. ????

Congrats @Wishus!
And good luck everyone on the last week. This is my last attempt to get something on.

Bees, porridge, a Mexican mayor, an engagement ring....

Not my early Christmas list, just some of the subjects I've gone for in the finale

Given the Twitter results for 'Newsjack', I feel like I should have written something with the punchline "Chick-fil-a"

But, I did at least succeed in a full complement of 6 jokes for each of the 6 episodes. If nothing else, it's strengthened my comedic muscles and ability to write under pressure.

Good luck to us all!

Just received the good e-mail for the first time in four series. Hope other BCG posters get lucky too.

Nothing for me. I really thought I stood a good chance this time. That'll teach me!

Well done Blinkered, Trashbat and Jonny g323!

I managed to get on. Did anyone else get the email twice? I'm trying to work out if it was an accident.;) Also, good luck for next series everyone!

Well done all you email recipients! Nothing for me but can't complain too much. Until February I guess!

Yeah, the 2nd email didn't have all the other recipients cc-ed on it. Maybe they thought that made up for the original blunder!
