Humour: 5 This one is a hard category to judge because the pictures carry most of the article, but they're judged in a separate category.
Concept: 6 "It's funny because it's boring" is a really hard to make work. You're on the right track here, but it needs a little something. A hint of something harder edged under the narrator's bland monologue? It just needs a hint; there's no reason to go overboard
Prose and formatting: 7 The prose is nice; no major problems that I can see and the narrator's voice really suits the tone of the article.
Images: 8 Like I said, the astonishing blandness of the images really carries the article. Did you doctor them, or did you trawl through a bunch of them to find the blandest? Either way, good work!
Miscellaneous: 6.5 Average of other scores.
Final Score: 32.5 You have the beginnings of a good article here. It could be lengthened a touch, but I wouldn't try to make it too much longer. Making fun of how boring and bland something is is a difficult business, and like I say this article does need a little pep to make that work. Take a look at some of Monty Python's accountancy humour, or Grampa Simpson's tedious monologues for a little inspiration on how to make something boring and funny at the same time.
