Love the kings one, but seems to. Be over 25 words.
Thanks for the laugh with your answers, you have got the right sense of humour, just need to find the right judge!

fairly sure the Kings Couch entry was 50 WOL.

Many of us will tell you that some of our wol wins were nowhere near our cleverest. We are often not sure if they are drawn, judged, fluked, different judges like different things, who knows! Your are win worthy. Don't give up.

Yes all your WOL are very good,

This is my lame Canadian Club one, which I just used the same answer the whole time

"Beers Sucks, Tastes Yuck, Beer Can Go and Get PUCKED!" :o

obviously I want to go to Canada, can you tell? :lol:

Keep going!

With entries of that quality you would have one loads of competitions a decade ago but these days (party due to sites like this :D) there are thousands of people entering most competitions and it's REALLY hard to win. It will happen sooner or later though: just hang in there.

When all entries are published it is an interesting exercise to go through them and see how you would judge.

For example in the current Oral-B comp which finishes tomorrow there are 2200+ entries. Many more than half of them would rule themselves out as breaching copyright. Of the rest you could probably pick 30 or 40 potential winners. Narrowing it down to this number isn't hard but choosing the winner from them is! It all comes down to what the judges are looking they want funny? artistic? brand promotion? Do they want to be able to use it in advertising? What image of Rob suits their brand strategy?

I think in any competition there are many potential winners, of a quality that makes them stand out from all the others. Which one of those 30 or 40 wins is purely a matter of luck as to what catches the judges' eyes.

It just depends. Some of the ones here that people have loved didn't capture me. But a few of yours would have made my winning list, especially the nature beauty answer.
You never ever know who is reading them. You could have a straight laced judge who loves airy fairy. You could have a judge with a dirty mind who doesn't get your answer. You could have an older judge who doesn't get young sassy humour.
It's so hit or miss. At least these are all the things I tell myself since I can't crack a words or less either.
Chin up, soldier onwards and remember that the process of thinking up these 25 WOL answers is potentially warding off alzheimers! :P

I really have fun with WOL and win a few, not the holiday ones though as I find them difficult. Nearly all of my winning WOL are humorous so I find it much easier to answer a WOL on what type of shoe I'd be rather than why I want to go to Fiji.. As others have said though, persistence and practice pays off, I've only just started recording my WOL entries and I think it helps to look back at those too. ;)

Some of your WOL made me laugh shanny88! (and hopefully the judges too!)

The huge majority of prizes I win seem to be from WOL comps. Apart from once, I've never rhymed my WOL and think that a creative and well articulated believable, non-corny answer is equally as good as a clever rhyming one, if not better! :)
