well, my first win after 2 honorable mentions and only 27 comics is making me feel conceited. So the subject of this contest is me.
1) If you live in Ohio, or have ever lived in Ohio, you must make a joke about Ohio (in jokes are okay, as long as I get them). If you have never lived in Ohio, you must make a joke about San Francisco or Louisiana (the two other places I've lived).
2) Since you know probably know little or nothing about me, you should use my LiveJournalentries, interests list, or yahoo photos to find a suitable topic for your comic. And while I will understand your topic better than anyone else, your comic should still be funny to someone who hasn't slogged thru my entire online Journal (which I don't recommend doing anyway). Posts/comments I've made in SC forums are also fair game.
3) Unlike the Wirthling sucks contest, the main point of this contest is NOT to put me down. You can do that and still win if it's funny and pertinent, of course, but "lara7's mama" jokes and the like as the sole lara7 content of your strip will be disqualified.
4)this strip by Gabe is an example of the type of thing that could win: [Click to view comic: 'Art Car?']
except it is disqualified because it does not make a joke about Ohio.
5) If you know me in Real Life, you have an unfair advantage, and thus must follow these rules as well; a) you may not use any pronouns (he,we,I,they,etc) or possessives (my, mine,hers,our etc) and b) you may not use any human characters in your strip.
You have until Wednesday 11:59pm (EST) to get your entires in; winner should be posted soon after.
When they invent BookFace, I'm -there-.
