    First-Ever CricketWeb "Most Creative Story Competition"!

    Ok, so here is how it goes. You have to create a story which should be highly creative and should make your head bang over how creative one can get.

    -->PRIZE

    The story with the most creative content will win a copy of ICC2006 to be dispatched by SportGifts.

    -->Ping Pong Ball

    Once a man's wife gave birth to a son. When he turned 14 months old, he started speaking. The first word that he spoke wasn't mama, wasn't papa, it was "Ping Pong Ball". So his father went to the market and brought a ping pong ball for him. His son grew up further and went to school. When the results of exam came, father asked his son what he'd like to have. He said "Ping Pong Ball". So he brought one for his son.

    After a few years his son took part in athletics and won the first prize. Dad once again asked and got the reply "Ping Pong Ball". So he went and brought a tiwanese ping pong ball for him.

    Time rolled on. His son fared exceptionally well in exams and got admission in Stanford. A jubiliant dad asked his son what should he give him, and the son said, yes you are right, a "Ping Pong Ball". Amazed, dad went and brought the most expensive piece for him. Soon the son flew to USA.

    After a few months dad called son and informed him that he is visiting USA. So should he bring something for him, was the question asked. To which he recieved the reply, oh yes, "Ping Pong Ball". So the dad brought a special wooden case, put the ping pong ball in it, and flew to USA.

    Dad returned after a few weeks. Months later son called dad and informed him of his arrival. He reached the airport and was reaching home via taxi. But the taxi had an accident and the son got admitted in hospital.

    The anxious dad came to meet him. He asked if he'd like to have something. The son replied "Ping Pong Ball". Now, like you, the dad became furious.

    He asked, "Son, ever since you were young I have been hearing this ping pong ball, ping pong ball, ping pong ball over and over again since the time you were a toddler. And even now, you are asking for this ping pong ball. Why is it that you kept asking for it everytime? Tell me the reason now, NOW!"

    Son said "Papa, Papa, PAPA..." and died.




    Well, its a story and not a joke, so you shouldn't have expected something funny.

    Aye Open it looks like you're correct, with only a small amount of digging a variation of this story is used to define a 'shaggy dog' story.

    http://www.answers.com/topic/shaggy-dog-story

    Note 3: Another version of this joke involves the boy asking for ping-pong balls.......After several years and several ping-pong ball requests, the son is in a car accident and lays dying on the ground. The father has to know, and asks his son what he was doing all those years with the...... The son replies, "Oh father, I was..." and promptly dies.
    I guess competition is now closed!

    I guess this is a newest low in creativity since Milli Vanilli

    I would put this debacle up there with every single one of Shannon Noll's songs being a remake. Get your own material you phony!

    If thats the case than I obviously misunderstood and I apologise.

    If its an example then its clearly fine but it should be labled as such to avoid confusion.

    So then how is it creative?
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
