Play it if: you have five minutes to waste on some light humor.
Don't play it if: words like "light", "humor", and "waste" are not what you're looking for in IF at the moment.
The entries for the 2012 Hugo Comp come across as relatively polished Speed IF (though, frankly, most IF comes across as polished Speed IF).
