Comments on: Palm Announces the Treo Comedy Film Festival

In the latest posting on the Official Palm Blog, employee Colleen Werner has announced the first Treo Comedy Film Festival. The deal: create a short film - maximum length 60 seconds (not including credits) - and make it funny. That's funny as in "Ha ha", not funny as in "Volvo driver". There's a whole range of sweet prizes on offer, with the Best Of Festival winner taking away a $5,000 cash prize, a mobile filmmaking toolkit and travel & accommodations for the Los Angeles gala event on October 18th.

Volvo driver?

And precisely what is 'funny' about 'Volvo driver?'

I believe it is meant that making fun of Volvo drivers will elicit a groan instead of a "ha ha".

However, I'm not sure if this applies to dogs. I do have a few movies shot from my Treo of my 30 pound male Shiba Inu hilariously and awkwardly attempting to make puppies with female Dobermans, Rottweilers, and Malamutes, though. I suppose what is "ha ha" funny to one person will make another person groan...

The only people who don't realise that Volvo drivers are funny is... well... Volvo drivers...!

Volvo drivers in Northern Virginia are not funny - they are scary...and everywhere.

And that is actually no kidding at all - I ALWAYS eyeball Volvos when I'm near them on the highway - more than a few times I've watched as Mammas-driving-Volvos turn around completely in their seats and adjust something on their baby in the middle of the second seat - at 50 MPH on a 55 MPH highway.

Close. It's more that Volvo drivers are funny because they're so incredibly lame, not because there's anything inherently humorous about them.

Evidently, I need to work on my comedic delivery. ;)

Palm has time to do THIS but not stuff that, like, MATTERS?

I think it's a good idea - PALM has no advertising dollars (they aid so...relatively speaking) and with this they can get press space, YouTube space, LOTS of "viral marketing" space for about, what?, $10,000.

Keep dreaming. This thing won't spread like the flu. On the Net, it won't even be a sneeze.

The initial presentation by Hawkins was sadly hilarious ("If I could do it again I would have..."). If you've got it on your TREO, then...

A video of the Fooleo chasing down and devouring a Treo, a la Pac-Man.

Someone's been documenting the history of the Palm Treo?
