If Paper People Jokes had been in the top 4 finalists for my category, this is the video they would have played at the Vimeo Awards ceremony last Thursday.
Thank you to my peeps:

Ah yes, I'm one of the hundreds of Vimeans who covered the festival with their iPhone.
Not surprisingly, this festival coverage centers around me (so it's not very informative).
BUT if you'd like to see more real-deal coverage of the festival, I suggest you check out the link(s) below.
When it comes to paper-craft-animated jokes,
ain't nobody around as big as me. You could even say
I'm the global kingpin for paper animated jokes.
Don't blame the player- blame the game.
There's a world full of joke-heads out there,
and I'm their #1 joke pusher.
But the time has come where I need to ask for your help.
Ya see, I'm a shortlist contender for the 2012 Vimeo Festival
+ Awards in the Series category. And the time for online voting is now!
You can vote once a day. So please vote now, and vote often until April 30th.
I do appreciate it. And I'll keep cuttin' up some primo joke for y'all in return.

Jokes from you (the viewer)
Good jokes. Bad jokes. All jokes in between.
Your jokes + my animation = Paper People Jokes.
In PPJ's 2.5 year run, I've animated over 150 jokes from viewers around the world, with a collective audience of 250K + views. From contests to challenges, I've interacted with thousands of different viewers. Globally, I'm trying to bring new life to the time-honored oral storytelling tradition of joke-telling.
I hope we can keep on breaking new boundaries in interactive entertainment, while promoting new ways to enrich the time-honored tradition of joke-telling for the generations to come.
[Who am I kidding? I just get a kick out of animating other people's jokes. It's my thing.]

Your jokes + construction paper = Paper People Jokes
