Reader: Did the joke-contest rules say you had to be under eleven to enter?

Last week, we asked readers for their favorite jokes -- and promised that the people who provided the most laughs would win tickets to shows at either the original Comedy Works downtown or at Comedy Works South.

Our overall winner?

Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: It's a really obscure number... You've probably never heard of it.

Not funny, says gimmeabreak, who adds:

I think they forgot to mention the rules of this contest:

1) You must be under the age of 11 to enter the "joke" contest.

2) You must not use a "joke" that makes one "smile" or "laugh"

Which joke submitted in the contest was your favorite? Read them all here.
