We Think You Might Be Funny!


It’s a contest!

In most years, for April Fool’s Day, the Blue Line editors get foolish and post silly stuff about Boulder.  Sort of a Boulder version of the Onion (the Bunion!).

Write a winning article for the Blue Line’s April Fool’s issue and win a gift card for a cup of coffee or tea at a local shop.  If you are so inclined, include an original graphic.  We love charts and graphs of all kinds. This year, we’re thinking that there must be at least one article about the mood of the town. For example, how about “Boulder Reaches Peak Umbrage”?

How much higher could Boulder’s umbrage get? None higher!

So here are the rules:

  • All content must be original, developed by you
  • You must have rights to all images and graphics that you include
  • For this issue only, you may use a pseudonym (or your real name if you prefer)
  • Each headline must have at least one paragraph of content to accompany it
  • It’s okay to be sophomoric, but not okay to be mean
  • Anger isn’t that funny
  • Entries are due by noon, March 30
  • Submit entries via our Submit an Article page
  • Winning entries will run on April 1, 2015
  • Questions?  Contact us
  • If we post your article, we’ll send you a gift card for a cup of coffee at a local Boulder coffee shop

We’re looking forward to your entries!
