It’s time for another West Side Rag contest! This time the prize is a limited edition, pre-pandemic West Side Rag T-shirt. We’ll give one each to the writers of the five funniest comments on any story in the coming week, Monday to Sunday. Sounds easy, right? But have you checked out the comments lately? Funny is not their strong suit. You can’t imagine how it is for our moderators to come upon a clever or laugh-out-loud line — like water to a dying plant! Which brings up a great one that came in from Boris the other day, regarding a story in Openings & Closings about the opening of a new Plant Shed outlet. Commenter ILuvPlants had written, “Another PlantShed location!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” To which Boris replied, “Don’t get too excited or you’ll wet your plants.”
Put something funny or punny in the comments this week. We’ll find it. (And use a real email address.)
Winners can pick up their prizes at West Side Rag’s new offices on West 72nd Street. Supply and sizes are limited, so joke fast.
