When I first started Muppets For Justice I thought I would soon get bored of it. The first post was back in 2007, and I subsequently did get bored of it because I can’t stick with anything. I call those the wilderness years because I can hardly say I ran the Blog during this time. After drifting on the breeze for a couple of years, I picked it up again in the summer of 2011. This time, I took it a lot more seriously and set myself 3 simple goals. I still try and adhere to these goals today which influence a lot of the content I produce. These are:
1. Stick to a regular posting schedule of twice a week (Monday to Friday).
2. Build a community (I try to respond to everyone who leaves a comment).
3. Don’t be nasty.
That third point is actually rather difficult to adhere to without limiting yourself slightly. A lot of the topics I tend to cover can easily offend some people, and I’m sure many people have been turned off by posts such as this. However, what I mean by “Don’t be nasty” is that I try not to pick on a specific target and offend them.
For those observant readers out there, yes, there are several examples on this Blog where I’ve had a pop at a celebrity. A few years ago I made the mistake of writing a piece called Ewan McGregor Is A Bag Of Wank. While I make no apologies for what I wrote, it did come across as quite bitter and subsequently, not funny. It’s still available because I want it to serve as an example of what not to do. Since this, I have tried to steer clear of what could be construed as a personal attack. Sarcastic commentaries are much better in this regard

Other than that, this Blog is a place where creativity can run rampant, a place where the only limit is your imagination. Well that, and a self-enforced character limit of 500-1000 words. During the last two years we’ve covered some utterly bizarre concepts. We’ve set up a cuddling business, had a date with a sexy psychic, and learned some important life lessons. We’ve also given out countless nuggests of advice for pet owners, let a pigeon give out sex tips, and hit a whole bunch of kids.
But it’s not only me who has all the fun. Sometimes I let other Bloggers loose to cause whatever mayhem they desire. Chiz came over to tell us how to churn out Will Smith styled clones, and Pickleope taught us about the paranormal. Myself and Chiz lampooned some horrible movie lines, and countless people contributed to the Podcast.
In the spirit of the community that has built up around this Blog, on my 200th post celebration I wrote a collaborative story. Basically, everyone contributed a sentence that I had to weave into a story, which proved to be such fun that I’ve decided to do it again. That’s right, I want you to submit some more sentences for me to use in a new story. Don’t be afraid to hold back. Some of the submissions were utterly ludicrous last time, which is exactly what I’m after.
So, all I need from you is come up with the most ridiculous sentence you can muster and leave it in the comments. Please write your submission between hash tags like so:
#Jonny picked up the hurdy-gurdy and gave the finest rendition of ‘Sweet Child Of Mine’ that the folks at the retirement village had ever heard.#
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
**Please note that submissions close 16/08/13. Any entries after this point will not be considered.
