Welcome to The Jester Board, a nook of original humor at The Motley Fool. Bluntly, it's a place to write funny stuff and for stuff that can't fit elsewhere on TMF because it's humorous and/or lyrical.

This isn't a board for jokes you got on the Internet. If you want post jokes, go to Humor and Urban Legends. Tell them I sent you. They're nice people over there yet we do something different.

It's a place for writing funny and/or funny writing. The subject matter is your choice and that's about as specific as I can get other than occasionally I or someone else will toss out a challenge such as write TMF's posting policy Elizabethan style or in the manner of instructions for assembly by an Asian bicycle maker. Or Brittney Spears as a reporter on life in Afghanistan. That sort of thing.

Posters having an idea for a challenge are asked to number their initial challenge consecutively to the one preceding it to separate one subject from another. That way we can also use the threaded function if a reader wishes.

Of the three pillars of TMF: Educate, Enrich, and Amuse, this board centers on the last yet also remembers there's many a true word said in jest.

Well, that's about it other than mentioning that I'd like you if you find someone who writes funny to let them know there's The Jester Board.
