The Christmas Competition.
« on: November 07, 2007, 06:34:11 PM »
Okay, I have decided. This year's competition kind of combines Beau Peep and Horace. You have to give "Indian" names to Beau Peep characters----you know, like "Dances with Wolves". You can name one or more characters. For example, Dennis might be "Nothing between Ears" or "Two Short Planks". Hopefully, something a lot better.
Anyway, it runs to the end of this month and the winner will receive original artwork from each strip and possibly something else. I may also get one of the moderators to judge it. We'll see...

Dunces with Wolves? Hmmm. What about those Thickos with Dundee Utd!  >:(

I am sure we have done this before, so either Roger is going senile or I am.

I wondered about this, Minces with Hamsters. It seemed vaguely familiar as I started out. Okay, cancel this. Back to the drawing board....

Yep, first sign of senility is thinking you've come up with a new idea when it was just proposed moments earlier.

The competition isn't a bad concept, but I would suggest that we simply name one or more characters. For example, Dennis might be "Nothing between Ears" or "Two Short Planks". Hopefully, something a lot better.

I thought that too.
Not the senile part  ;D

Great idea, Malc, but I think Roger should be setting the competition.

However, if he runs with your proposal, as the newest moderator, I'd be happy to judge the entries. Heck, I'll even take part in the competition. Never let it be said...
I apologise, in advance.

I've got the first entry - "Amnesia Roger".

Judge that for me please, would you Tarquis...

Well I'm glad this got sorted before I looked through my disks for my first answers to this question. Although I didn't win that time, I had high hopes for them this time now that half of the people who post here are either moderators, related to moderators, related to the cartoonist or mince and therefore disqualified.

Who says we're disqualified, Diane? I hope you're not suggesting that, as a judge, I would be anything but the very essence of impartiality when it comes to choosing my winning entry?
I apologise, in advance.

Okay, okay, I made a mistake. (It's like that line from the movie "The Big Bus"----"You eat one lousy foot and people call you a cannibal").
You have to write a poem. The first letter of each line has to spell out the name of a character from the strip. For example, the first line starts with "e", the second with "g", the third with"o" and so on.
The competition runs till the end of the month and prizes will be as before. I don't know who will judge it yet.
I'm too upset to think about it at the moment.
