Daily News Jokes

The Daily News is apparently calling and emailing around for entries in a joke contest.

Why does this make us nervous?

Anyway, here are the rules:

“The jokes have to be clean. We’re a family newspaper.Your joke should be concise. The shorter and punchier, the better. The joke doesn’t have to be in NY, but it has to be from NY (in otherwords, no writers for Leno, but Letterman is cool).”

The blog that intercepted a News joke-gathering email, Tale of Two Cities, rather unkindly adds:

“And if we remember how the Daily News’ last reader contest went, well, the joke will probably end up being on them.”
