A few of my entries in recently closed/drawn comps...

Feedback appreciated!

and I'll show you mine if you show me yours! :)

"The elephant and I have much in common,
Slow and ponderous with a big bottom,
Sounds pretty ordinary yet,
Like the elephant I NEVER forget!"

The above entry was for some videos at <b>[delete this please, site not allowed]</b> but I have never seen winners posted.

"My husband's a movie buff,
He really thinks he does it tough,
The video has all clapped out,
The speakers really give him nowt
but heartache.
He dreams of surround sound,
Play it hard, play it loud,
Everything from sci-fi and action,
to Teletubbies and Fimbles attraction,
Oh, and cake."

A comp at Sony for a home theatre system. I'm not quite sure where my head was on re-reading this one! LOL

"My children think I am a Fossil so if I won this great watch I could prove even Fossils are Fashionable!"

A fossil watch entry.

"Hp + me = Better business - problems."

HP table pc entry.

"My daughter has a nickname,
We call her "Feral Beryl"
'Cos when she has preservatives,
She becomes quite a terror!
TNCC is our saving grace,
"Cos it's very hard to be told,
"No more lollies ever!"
When you're only 4 years old."

My entry for the TNCC june jellies.

OK....your turn to share now!!

I have a few more up my sleeve.....;)

G'Day Melmac,

Nothing to do with 25 worders, but I had to laugh upon reading one of the lines from your TNCC entry, as we often refer to our boy & girl as Errol & Beryl Feral.

Love that elephant- it could be me you are talking about there!!

I think this is what I wrote as a winner in the 15 wol AWW Thai Cookbook comp last month

"The Kids would love to have a try
At cooking Mum and Dad some Thai!"

Even though they ask for 15wol on the entry the T&C's are a bit obscure about whether it is judged or a draw, I thought this was a pretty ordinary effort and it won and in the past I thought I had done much better and not won!! who knows, unfortunately, now that we have the book my husband is expecting me to actually cook from it
:o :o

BH&G Laundry makeover

I was really hoping for this one, because it's all true except for the dryer (I won a new one!)

Machine's got Alzheimer's, dryer's kaput!
Cats, dogs, tools and soot underfoot
Please Omo banish my washday blues
With 5 grand, I could start anew!

Why didn't they win ???

The entries above are great !. When you consider what DOES win sometimes ; things like "You can afford a Ford' , it can be quite annoying !!. Keep it up.

(PS I am posting my own 25 wol AFTER the comps are drawn from now on on advice from more senior compers !.):cool:

Thanks for sharing your entries - it's great to read what others write, especially as I am yet to win from a 25wol.

PS I've already posted a couple of mine on other threads so I won't repeat them, but I'll post more (probably losers) soon.

Thanks to everyone who shared and commented

This section of the forum is one of my faves. I love the clever, witty entries that others write and it makes me understand why I don't win when I see the high quality.

Let's keep up the sharing (and I too am posting closed comp entries Polarbird...sensible decision)

here's another loser :)

I entered this for the fossil watch comp.

I think the question was why do you want to win a fossil watch?

coz i envision fashion with a passion for precision and fossil style on my dial is a cool and wild provision.

I thought it was ok! But sometimes I wonder if all 25wd comps are judged on merit or if they are just entered into a draw...?

Another Fossil watch loser:

My kids call me an old fossil…with a new Fossil watch I`d say ‘Oh, yeah? What would you know!’

Whoops, what happened there? Another try:
My kids call me an old fossil. With a new Fossil watch I`d say,"Oh yeah? What would you know!"

I'm known for straight talking and little imagination.

Here are two of my recent winning 25wol's

For a Johnson and Johnson competition
why you like their products

quality speaks for itself.

New woman - why do you deserve to be spoilt?

who needs a reason
just spoil me!

My theory is just have a go, you never know!

My winning entry for a keyring sized digital camera. This was the first 25 word or less comp I had entered, Im hooked now lol.

the question was "why would a compact applicator tampon be of advantage to you" or something like that.

Rockin in the moshpit,
no place for a bag.
Whats a girl to do when shes on her rag?
Tampacks compacts perfect pocket fit.

I lied about my age to make me seem more hip to lol said I was 18 not 28.
