Chortle's Opinions section is an arena for fans to share their views on any aspect of comedy.

Contributions should be at least 500 words in length, in a similar tone to something you might read in a broadsheet newspaper, and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
We reserve the right to edit pieces – although we will be careful not to change the meaning of anything – or not to use them at all. By submitting an article you grant Chortle indefinite licence to use it freely; though you retain the copyright on it to use it elsewhere.
