Just in time for
the America’s most anticipated day, the IRS Tax Filing Deadline
(commemorated this year on April 17), Vestal Review magazine announces
the Deficit Reduction contest. The projected US deficit for this year
is $1,327 billion. Since Vestal Review is a small literary magazine,
the complete deficit elimination would be a too ambitious goal.
Therefore, we will establish the top prize of 663.5 billion dollars for
this contest. This prize, donated to the US government by the staff of
Vestal Review on behalf of the winner, will merely halve the deficit,
but you have to start somewhere.
The final judge will be Sarah Palin, selected
for her economic policy acumen and her mastery of belle lettres.
The prize monies will be delivered in a
specially rented Brink’s truck into the shaking-with-anticipation hands
of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue during the joint session of
Congress, attended by the President, the staff of Vestal Review, the
judge, Lady Gaga and the winner.
All participants will receive a lifetime
subscription for Vestal Review. The winning entry, which in the spirit
of Vestal Review’s flash fiction nature is limited to 500 words, will
be published in print and Web editions of the magazine.
The contest will run from April 17, 2012 until
April 1, 2013 and will be open to all residents of the world above the
voting age of 18. The decision of the judges will be final.
The usual entry fee to prize ratio for a
literary contest is 1:30 or
1:50, but this contest will have an unheard of ratio of 1:1000, which
means that the fee is only $663,500,000.
Participants have a better chance of winning than getting struck by lightning.
