Think you’re funny and everyone is always laughing at your jokes? Well now is time to see how funny you really are as T-Pain partners with Laffy Taffy® to help select the next generation of “dad jokes” to be printed on the fruity, chewy candy packaging. The iconic candy brand is retiring its 15 original one-liners and looking for new ones.
For AKA National Tell a Joke Day on August 16, the beloved candy brand kicked off its first joke-writing contest in decades, dubbed “Your Jokes, Our (W)rapper.” 101 (LOL…get it!?), participating fans will become part of Laffy Taffy's decades-long legacy as their jokes are printed on wrappers which will be available to purchase at retailers nationwide.
Winners will also receive a custom bag of Laffy Taffy mini bars exclusively featuring their one-liners to “Pass the Laff” to friends and family. The Grand Prize winner for the “best laff”, judged and selected by GRAMMY Award-winning superstar artist T-Pain, will receive a cash prize of $5,000, a custom bag of mini bars with their jokes and a wrapper autographed by T-Pain to enjoy as a keepsake.
Laffy Taffy Jokes
Joke-tellers nationwide wishing to enter “Your Jokes, Our (W)rapper” can visit www.laffytaffy.com/yourjokes from Aug. 16 – Sept. 16 to submit jokes through the online form for a chance to win. Jokes submitted to the contest will be judged based upon humor, originality, creativity and relevance to brand values. Terms and Conditions apply. Fans can only submit one joke, so choose carefully! To help prevent writer's block, Laffy Taffy will offer inspiration by sharing some of their existing jokes on the website.
“Those who know me best understand comedic humor is a passion of mine and I really enjoy telling jokes and having a good, old-fashioned laff,” says T-Pain. “I've always loved the taste of Laffy Taffy and enjoyed reading the hilarious dad jokes on their wrappers, so I'm excited that joke-tellers nationwide will have the opportunity to have their own printed on the packaging and that I'll get to decide who has the funniest pun – we're going to have a lot of fun reading submissions and eating Laffy Taffy, I can't wait.”
T-Pain took to the stage at famous comedic institution in Laffy Taffy's hometown, Zanies Comedy Club Chicago, last night to announce the contest and rap the “original jokes” into sweet retirement, making room for new jokes on the iconic wrappers. This is Laffy Taffy's latest innovative effort to help fans “pass a laff”…just last month the brand sold out of NFTs featuring the retired jokes in under 46 minutes!
