23m41s is my worst ever time for a sudou, I think, except for abandoning a puzzle altogether although I did have a couple of interruptions during the solution.

Please record your votes for 'Joke of the Year' HERE using the rules posted on 10 November, 2018 in 'palinstravels Big Green Joke Book" in the Blathering On section. A reminder of the format:

Mr/s X, date, Joke Y (only use this format if there is more than one joke in the message).


Message Z, Mr/s X ... as above. Only use this format if there are more than 1 joke messages by a person on the same day.

All jokes voted for must be in the Big Green Joke Book.

You can modify your voting preference any time up to the closing date using the 'Edit your message' facility.

X is the identifier for the person who has posted the joke.
Y is the number of the joke in the message.
Z is the number of the message by the person being voted for on the date on which the joke was posted.

Message 3 by Ken Dunn on 1st Jan - 4th Joke.
A vote of this type would mean that Ken Dunn had been very busy writing jokes on that day!

Ken, I nominate your previous post as the best joke I've ever seen on here.
Re: New Competition. by Ken Dunn on 17 November 2018 6:41am
Thank you for your vote JBG. I'm sorry but it has to be disallowed as the post you have voted for is not in the Joke Book - see the qualification rules above.

*** It's also worth remembering that only one year's worth of jokes have to be checked to make your vote. ***

I remember trying to do an edit of the jokes from the start of the Joke Book messages but had to stop for laughing.

*** Only pages 216 to 221 (so far) of the Joke Book contain jokes posted this year. ***

Brilliant! Well done Lounge Trekker! :)

Hah hah hah! Thanks for the recognition...the Palin's Travels experience has been great fun and nothing is better than sharing laughs with friends.

I've just done a sudoku in 5m45s including fixing a mistake.
Re: New Competition. by Ken Dunn on 19 February 2020 8:00am
I'm getting older and my sudoku times are increasing. The rules of the last competition are now modified from rather than be the quickest to under 6 minutes. Remember, no fibs.
