WWE, Wednesday Writing Essentials Challenge, 12/5/12, Children

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on December 5, 2012 0 Comments

 

Remember the old TV cartoons like Bugs Bunny and Wiley Coyote? I highly recommend watching at least one again. They are amazingly creative, entertaining and very much politically incorrect.

How about the old bed time stories and rhymes like, This Little Piggy? By today’s standards, the piggy that bought roast beef should be sharing it and the piggy that went wee, wee, wee, all the way home should have never left home. Rather the little weeer should have done nothing because by entitlement he deserved a share of the wealthy piggy’s roast beef.

Wiley Coyote is another good example. Frankly, from my viewpoint, Wiley should have been jailed for using TNT to try to blow up the roadrunner because the roadrunner is on the endangered species list. On the other hand, perhaps the roadrunner should have been jailed due to the fact that Wiley was also listed on the endangered species list.

What’s the challenge? Take an old cartoon, child’s story or nursery rhyme and make it politically correct (by today’s standards). That, of course, means a complete re-write of the original.

 

 

The Rules:

Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:

Make sure you put this (WWE, 12/5/12, Children) in your title.

Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Children. Post to Gather Writing Essential.

I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.

There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.

Most important:

Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.

Challenge: Take an old cartoon, child’s story or nursery rhyme and make it politically correct (by today’s standards). That, of course, means a complete re-write of the original.
