This is my 50th Spamusement guest strip. To mark this occasion, I tried to come up with something truly special, something that would blow you away and leave you speechless, something that would earn its place among the greatest guest strips of all time, perhaps even rivaling the brilliance of stevenf's finest original spamusements themselves.
Hahaha, yeah right.
So anyway, here's what I decided to do instead:
I have decided to challenge... ahem
you, yes, every single one of you
, to each
make a guest strip based on the subject line that is the title of this thread. The more of you decide to respond to this CHALLENGE, the more fun this will be!
But why would you want
to respond, anyway? That's a good question you are probably asking right now in the unlikely event that you are still reading this. Well, for one, you'll have the pride and satisfaction of knowing that you rose to this CHALLENGE, and met it unflinchingly. *insert laugh track here*
Secondly and more importantly, there's prizes!
The winner(s), as decided by both ME and YOU, will have the choice of either:
(a) a special personalized spamusement cartoon drawn by me,
(b) a custom avatar or signature picture, also drawn by me, or
(c) a picture of me holding a sign that says [Winner] is awesome!!!1
Okay, so there's really no reason why you'd want to participate in this. I am
asking nicely, though! And also, should none of you draw a comic, the winner will automatically be me
, since I already did one. HA!
Anyway, here are the "rules":
1.) Post entries in this thread
2.) One entry per person. Actually, scratch that, you can do as many as you like. In fact, the more you do, the better chance you have of winning. So, basically, ignore rule 2.)
3.) Alterations/upgrades of previously posted entries (ÃƒÂ la PixieWolfe) are not only allowed, they are encouraged
. If such a drawing winds up winning, both the original poster and the altere- I mean alternator will receive a prize. If the winning entry is a multi-person collaboration, the winner will be decided by a fight to the death. Or maybe they'll all get a prize. I haven't decided yet.
4.) The deadline for submitting cartoons is Monday, April 23rd, at roughly 12 o'clock (noon) EST
. Also, PLEASE DO NOT POST your entry(ies) before same time Friday
(12 o'clock, that is), unless you will be unable to do so afterwards. This is so that a really great comic will not discourage others from participating.
5.) After the contest is closed (and if there are enough entries), a poll
will be set up in the Spamusement section of the forums. There you will vote for your favorites. The poll will run until Wednesday evening
. If there are shared winners or if I really like a comic that did not win, both will receive a prize.
6.) Please refrain from excessively praising good entries to avoid influencing others' votes (e.g. "This comic is so brilliantly awesome that if it doesn't win, I'm setting my grandma on fire!!").
7.) The prize will be produced and delivered as soon as I am able to (i.e. sometime around next Christmas, probably).
8.) Have fun!
(This is an actual rule. If I notice that anyone is not having fun, they will be disqualified. So if you know what's good for you, you'd better have some fun.
That is all! Spamuse away!
