Thanks to a long-time friend of the “On Iowa Podcast,” we’ve got two pairs of Iowa-Missouri State football tickets to give away. We want to have fun with this, so we’re giving them away for a good joke.
Write something funny about the Iowa State Cyclones. The Wisconsin Badgers. The school up north. Heck, even the Iowa Hawkeyes. The two best jokes will earn a pair of tickets to the Iowa-Missouri State game this Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. We’ll pick out the best two by noon Thursday and read them (and some of the others) on the air of that afternoon’s “On Iowa Podcast.”
Simply write your joke in the comment section below. We’ll approve the ones that are appropriate for the website. Of course swearing isn’t tolerated (at least connected to our blogs) and nothing libelous, please. We also want to avoid anything that’s indecent. We’d like to try this again someday.
Here’s an example:
A Hawkeye fan, a Badger fan and a Gopher fan are involved in a string of robberies at local gas stations. As they leave the last one, the police department catches up with them. They run to an abandoned barn where once inside they find only two crates and a gunny sack. The Hawkeye fan jumps in the first crate, the Badger fan hops in the second and the Gopher fan pulls the gunny sack over his head and lays down on the ground.
The officer bursts through the door and finds two crates and sack in the barn, but the fans are nowhere to be seen. He walks up to the first crate and kicks it. The Hawkeye fan lets out a “bark, bark.” The sheriff thinks it’s just a dog and moves to the second crate and kicks it. The Badger fan gives his best “meow.” Thinking it’s only a cat, the officer walks over to the gunny sack and kicks it…
The Gopher fan yells, “potato, potato!”
