Submission Guidelines

You'll need to be logged in to view the simple form with Joke & Category, that way we can use your PIC account to automatically generate your byline and Twitter link, as well as catalog your accepted jokes on your author page, in our Jokes section, on the homepage, and around the site. You'll get an email notification as soon as a joke is accepted, typically within 1-3 days, otherwise please assume we've passed on it. But keep trying us!

To see your Twitter link alongside your joke, be sure you've filled in the “Twitter URL” field on your PIC profile. We regularly tweet jokes, @ tagging the author.

Things that could help a joke's chances with us:

  • Evergreen material (i.e. not timely; will age well)
  • Laugh out loud funny
  • Weird funny
  • Specific funny
  • Incorporating additional depth/layers/tags
  • Fresh fare or flair

Things that may deter us from accepting a joke:

  • Late night monologue-style setup/punchlines
  • Recent newscycle stuff
  • Minor wordplay alone
  • “Why did the chicken cross the road”–style setups

We have no preference for length, but we always appreciate proper grammar/punctuation.
