An aphorism is a pithy and memorable way of expressing something true or profound. Here are some examples:

"Where there is the necessary technical skill to move mountains, there is no need for the faith that moves mountains." -- Eric Hoffer

"Under peaceful conditions a warlike man sets upon himself." -- Friedrich Nietzsche

"Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." -- Benjamin Franklin

"If no special value is placed upon rare things, one will have no incentive for stealing them." -- Lao Tzu.

"Better a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is crooked in his ways and rich." -- Proverbs 28:6

The object of this contest is to come up with bad aphorisms. Instead of being insightful or wise, they should be stupid or foolish, words of "wisdom" for dummies headed down the wrong path. The aphorism should come as the punchline to a setup.

Here are the rules:

1) No old comics.
2) Each strip should end with a bad aphorism.
3) The aphorism should be made up, not taken from another source. But it is okay to falsely attribute it to someone. It's also okay to mangle or parody something from another source.
4) Multiple entries are allowed.
5) Series are allowed, as long as each strip ends with its own aphorism.

I will judge in a week to a fortnight, depending upon how active this contest gets.

With the slow turnout this contest has gotten so far, I'm going to relax some of the rules and keep it going until there are more entries. It is now okay to steal bad aphorisms from other sources, such as Life's Little Destruction Book, just to name one source. And you don't have to wait until the end to use it. Just work your strip around the bad aphorism somehow.

That's good for me, seeing as how I blatantly ignored the whole "end with the aphorism" rule. Or is my comic disqualified for not obeying the rules at the time it was posted? Hm...

I would apologize for being gone so long if in the meantime some good entries had shown up. I haven't had much time for stripcreator, because my new girlfriend has been keeping me busy when I have any free time. Since I would really like an actual good entry to win this contest, I'll just keep it going until I can get back to stripcreator again. Here's an example.

 I also submit -- in the spirit of the contest but not an entry -- some old comics
