Welcome to the 'Banned by the Boss' joke contest!
There are three jokes that The Boss refuses to print in Boys' Life magazine. He just doesn't think they're funny. But if you make a video of yourself telling the jokes in a way that makes The Boss laugh, you could win some cool prizes.


STEP 1: Make a video of yourself telling one of the following three jokes. Be as funny and creative as you can. You might want to use props, change the wording of the joke and involve your family and friends.

STEP 2: Upload your video to this site before June 30, 2010 by clicking on the "Enter Contest" link at the top of this page.

STEP 3: Get all your friends and family to watch your video. If they like it, maybe they'll vote for it! And if The Boss likes it, you could win a prize.

Remember, many people will enter, but only six will win.


Please choose one of these three "banned" jokes for your video:

JOKE 1: The Muffin Joke
Two muffins are in an oven. One muffin says to the other, "Wow! It's hot in here." The other muffin yells, "Ahh! A talking muffin!"

JOKE 2: The Interrupting Cow joke
First person: Knock, knock.
Second person: Who's there?
First person: Interrupting cow.
Second person: Interru--
First person: Moo!

JOKE 3: The Hungry Duck joke
A hungry duck walks into a store and asks the manager if they have grapes. "No, we don't have any grapes," the manager says. "And we don't serve ducks. Get out of here."

The duck goes back to the store the next day and asks the manager the same question: "Do you have any grapes?"
"I already told you, we don't have any grapes," the manager says. "And we don't serve ducks. If you come back, I'm going to nail your beak to the counter."

The next day, the duck walks into the store again. He goes right up to the counter and and asks the manager: "Do you have any nails?"
"No, we don't have any nails," the manager says.
"Good," the duck says. "Then do you have any grapes?"


FIRST PLACE: One winner will receive a GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera. This rugged, waterproof camcorder attaches to your helmet, handlebars, skis or skateboard so you can keep your hands free as you take professional, first-person-style videos. The next time you take a jump or go whitewater rafting, capture the moment and create your own high adventure videos.

SECOND PLACE: Two winners will each receive a Kodak PlaySport HD video camera. These portable, waterproof camcorders are great for catching the action at your next camp out.

THIRD PLACE: Three winners will each receive a $50 Gift Card to use at Scoutstuff.org. It's a great way to get cool gear.

Remember, many people will enter, but only six will win.
