City Tattersalls’ Tall Tales contest – Tuesday 8 October, 2013
City Tattersalls’ annual club Tall Tales contest was held on Tuesday 8th October. The contest is an opportunity for club members to have a bit of fun while practicing their speak skills.
According to Carolyn S. Brown, a tall tale is “a fictional story which is told in the form of personal narrative or anecdotes, which challenges the listener’s credulity with comic outlandishness, and which performs different social functions depending on whether it is heard as true or as fictional.”
The four contestants were Richard, Dilip, Martin and Lila. Many tall tales were told. In the end, Lila swept the audience (and the judges) away with her tall tale and took the first prize. Congratulations Lila!
