As the comics contest celebrates its 50th anniversary, sort of, so too does the award-winning TV anthology The Hallmark Hall of Fame. This cannot be a coincidence. Therefore the CC Gold Jubilee shall have a cinematic theme.

Rules:

1. The protagonist must be a gumshoe, newshound, archaeologist, astronaut, dedicated wife and mother suffering from a grave and fashionable illness, or similarly heroic character.

2. The protagonist must be in search of something or someone interesting-- a "maguffin" of your choosing.

3. Said maguffin may not be identified explicitly. Its identity must be elaborately implied.

4. The antagonist in the scene (not necessarily a villain or archrival, but at least someone in the way) must speak ONLY in cliches and must get them WRONG.

5. Other characters and setting elements are optional.

6. Feel free to Photoshop, embed animation, defile syndicated strips, or whatever else your horrible mind disgorges. Or use standard stripcreator elements. Whatever.

7. Your entry may be a multi-parter. Hell, make it an epic. Or not. But if it is multipart, make it hang together.

7a. Rule 7 does not apply to Crabby, who may enter only between zero (0) and one (1) strip(s), inclusive.

8. The contest shall be judged first thing Monday morning, which for me is 10ish EST.

9. See if you can think me up a chocolate donut, one with those little sprinkles on top.

No thanks. Thinking of you up a donkey is horrifying enough.

Donut? Maguffin? How 'bout a chocolate covered malteze falcon?

I can't fit a ****ing Hitch**** film into a three panel strip. I can't, I can't, I CAN'T!! Not even a bunch of three panel strips!! *snif*

I think I can hook you up with a doughnut, though.

Love,

That reminds me: I simply must stump ol' Hitch tonight.

Nonsense!

Not an entry, needless to say.

It's easy if you follow my easy, stupid method!

You probably won't get what the reference is about. But if anyone wants to take a shot at it, go ahead.

You know, this suddenly reminded me of the Evil Overlord List. The perfect resource for cliché-lovers everywhere.

My favorite...

The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.

This is an entry. I couldn't fit "CC50" on the title line, nor could I figure out how to shorten the title, but I liked it too much to do away with it.

The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!

Why so few entries? I thought everyone liked needlessly difficult rules.

Now, judgement.

I had a mouthful of hot coffee when I read NeoVid's immortal declaration, "prepare to doom your meat." Somehow I mastered the urge to spew the coffee onto my computer screen.

Drexle gets the prize for Most Twisted Perversion of Cliches Ever.

NastyPope's strip was a strong second, as he went to the trouble of trying to think me up a chocolate donut, and of being funny in the process.

Evil_d deserves special mention for "stool chicken." Lucky for him the Pun Police were on strike.

But the Cordon DeVille goes to Kaufman. This strip works on so many levers. Casting the Dubya-shaped Exploding Dog guy as Dubya was a stroking of genius. In the sphere of comics, I am merely a Salieri to Kaufman's Beethoven. Many happy reruns, Kaufman, for a winner is you.
