Craft the strongest argument you can muster for the most ridiculous stance. Our judge, Albert Navarra (a practiced attorney and author of The Joy of Argument), will be looking for the most persuasive essay on the most outrageous subject.

A second $100 winner will be chosen by public vote, so the sooner you submit your piece, the sooner it can garner the votes it needs to win! Get rules and instructions for entering here. 

This is, arguably, the greatest flash essay contest out there. We’ve already received entries that promote boredom in school, detail the reasons why you should kill your mother, extol the drinking of urine and, of course, at least one argument promoting Donald Trump for president. Browse all submitted entries here.
