So the Headline of the Year contest starts today (probably in the next two hours, depending on how fast I can get it set up).
Before it kicks off, I want to say a quick word to thank the hundreds and hundreds of funny, clever submitters that grace Fark with their work. Anybody who's ever tried their hand at submitting can attest that it's often more frustrating than rewarding, but there's a certain joy in crafting a funny headline well, and it's more art than science most of the time. Getting a greenlight can feel like a high, and for a submitter, there are few joys greater than getting appreciation in a thread for a headline that makes other people laugh.
You guys make Fark what it is. Thank you.
