I hereby claim the "Most Hated Contest Host" from whoever it was that ran that haiku contest, descolada I think.
Well, like I said, even if no one else enjoyed this, I did. I got a good laugh out of the entries, the inspiration, and the random not-quite-legal strips alike. In fact, some of the inspiration strips were hilarious, in a "that's so stupid it's funny" kind of way. Too bad they can't win. Thanks to those who posted them. And thanks to everyone for not sending me mailbombs. Unless you did and I haven't gotten them yet.
It was difficult, but I narrowed the selection down to the following entries:
crabby, man eats dogg but gets blown up by laser or brain power - lines like "it was love at first sight until the girl threatened to blow up the guy using mental powers of some sort" and "I HAVE DESTROYED YOU WITH SOME SORT OF BRAIN POWER OR MAYBE IT WAS A LAZER" made me giggle like a madman. Which I am.
kramer_vs_kramer, CC67 meh j00 - just for how over-the-top it was. You really fit everything in there.
DexX, CCLXVI - I feel cheap and dirty - it was almost frightening how well this emulated some of the crappy strips you can find here.
attitudechicka, CC: 67- No 53X - liked how this turned the stupidity around on its perpetrators.
bunnerabb, CC 67 - 3XPL371/3 D3L3373D!!1 - actual humor masked by L3375p33k; I was hoping we'd see more of it. (I had to take the backslash out of that title 'cause it screwed up the forum tags otherwise... weird.)
lemur68, CC#67 DrUgZ=p00p - a solid first effort; I liked the use of wirthling's head. Hope we'll see more of you.
I fretted a bit over whether choosing any of these would make me even more unpopular than I already was. Then I realized that they were all supposed to be stupid, and if people don't like the winning entry, that means it's done its job. So then I fretted some more over how I could pick only one when the others were so deserving. Then I told myself to stop that and just pick the one that made me laugh the most. So the winner is....

Congratulations, crabby. Go easy on 'em next time; the poor kids deserve a break after this contest.
The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!
