“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion.
I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.”
This month we’re asking you to vent your frustration through the form of an animated loop! In Australia when something annoys us we say that it “gives me the shits.” So, what shit’s you? Not knowing which armrest is yours at the cinema? Missing letters in your alphabet soup? Getting stuck in a bean bag? Chasing a ping pong ball? Ducks that don’t cross the road at their designated yellow road signs? Saying ‘goodbye’ to someone but you both walk off in the same direction? The fact that bowel cancer kills so many people every year, yet if detected early, 90% of people could survive? We want to see what frustrates you, and if your loop is judged as the overall winner
at the L.A screening you could win a $500 credit card to spend however you like!
whatsh-tsyou.com is an initiative of the Jodi Lee Foundation that strives to raise community awareness about bowel cancer and how early detection can save lives. The quirky forum lets people vent about the funny things in life that give them the shits. It’s a light-hearted tongue-in-cheek campaign but with a serious agenda – because it gives them the shits that so many people unnecessarily die from bowel cancer every year.
The submission rules are simple;
- it must be made by you,
- it must suit the month’s theme,
