Thanks to everyone except Andy for your patience. Yes, unfortunately, there is a point. My quest to host the most evil contest ever continues.
For CC67, your mission is to write a comic that appears bad on the surface, but is actually somehow funny.
What makes a comic appear bad? Take some cues from these strips. Use L3375p33k. Capitalize everything. Omit all punctuation, unless it's replacing a letter. Abbreviate wherever humanly possible. Make inside jokes and obscure references that no one else will ever get. Misspell every other word. Use six different characters and three different backgrounds. Rely on cliches like spontaneous combustion, a foul-mouthed Jesus, or pointless randomness to provide humor. Overnarrate. Stretch backgrounds. Do whatever you can think of to make it the kind of comic you wouldn't even bother to finish reading if you came across it on the front page.
If, over the course of the contest, you find more painfully bad comics on the site, post them here, so we can all be "inspired". (It would help if you clearly marked your entries, so they don't get lost. It will suffice to put the Contest number in the title or to say "this is an entry" when you post.)
What can make a seemingly bad comic funny? That's up to you. I don't care why it's funny, as long as it is. Write a strip that turns our agonized wails into hearty laughter. Your entry's likelihood of winning is a combination of how bad it looks and how hard it makes me laugh.
Multiple entries are permitted. Submit your strips within 72 hours of the time of this post. That'll be about 10:30 pm Sunday, EDT. Judging will take place within a couple of hours of that time.
Good luck, and may the best worst stripper win.
The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!
