‘Ears to Fred and George Contest Opens


Feb 28, 2008

Posted by EdwardTLC

Our Contest Crew has a new call for submissions for our latest contest to bring you today. Soon the April 1st celebration of the birth of Fred and George Weasley will be up on us, and we are asking you to assist our dear George in coming up with a new, and hopefully better, ear joke for this most hole-y occasion. Those who have read “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will remember George’s injury in Chapter 5 and his subsequent joke about it in hopes to calm his worried family. In order to enter the ‘Ears to Fred and George Contest, please submit no more than three original jokes that are fifty words or less. As always, a strict PG-13 rating is required for all submissions and anyone over the age of 13 who is not part of the judging process may enter.

Submissions must be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line reading “Ear Jokes” by March 25, 2008 at 11:59pm EST. Complete rules and submission information can be found on the Contest Page as well as the Contest section of our own Leaky Lounge forums.

Good luck to all who enter!

Strict PG-13 restriction, ay? Skys the limit then when you consider what Beowolf got away with the same certification! I think Leaky should have made this contest more universal so under 13s can take part too and they can be very imginative. That actually begs the question, why cant under 13s be allowed to enter? I suppose this website was never ideal for them but nevertheless I think a lot of them do, dont they?

Professor Potter thanks for asking the question about the 13-year-old age limit.

COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act) does not allow us to take identifying information from children under the age of 13 without a parent/gaurdian’s written consent.

COPPA also limits who and how many contacts a child can have with out staff members, so it pretty much disables our ability to allow them to enter contests.

This is why anyone under 13 can not take part in our forum without a parent’s permission.
