The Battle of the Catalaunian Plains (or Fields), also called the Battle of Châlons (also spelled Chalons or Chalon) or Battle of the Campus Mauriacus, took place in 451 between a coalition led by the Roman general Flavius Aetius and the Visigothic king Theodoric I on one side and the Huns and their allies commanded by Attila on the other. It was one of the last major military operations of the Western Roman Empire and marks the apex of the career of Flavius Aetius.

But that's not what this contest is about.

From Wikipedia:

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury which was first published in 1953.  The novel presents a future American society in which the masses are hedonistic and critical thought through reading is outlawed. The central character, Guy Montag, is employed as a "fireman" (which, in this future, means "bookburner"). The number "451" refers to the temperature at which book paper combusts.

Haha, you see what Ray Bradbury did there?  In a dystopian future, "Fireman" means something completely different from what we understand a fireman to be.  And that's what CC 451 is all about.

Your comic must explore a future time in which some common modern-day occupation has taken on a whole new meaning.  Here's an example:

There are no other rules for the contest, and judging will commence on Sunday,  May 16th.  Good luck and have fun!

This contest is going to be a tough one to call, these are all great!

I'll be juding this today when I get home from work, so by my calculations that's going to be about 8-9 hours from this post.  Get your last minute entries in!

I was incredibly impressed with pretty much all of the entries for this contest, and it took me almost all day deliberating.  You should see the complicated charts I had drawn on my stationary at work.  Sooooooooooo many lines and graphs...

waaaaaaaaaaaaa *drool*

I digress.

Anyways, the results are here and I am ready to announce the winners.  But first, some honorable mentions:

Kaufman: I wanted very much to award you a win but I'd hate to prove your grandfather wrong!

Choadwarrior: Not an occupation per se, but definitely hilarious!  This will be a favorite of mine for years to come, no doubt.

TheGovernor: Now THAT was punderful!

OK, enough stalling.  Here's the runners up:

4th place goes to RandomComicLayoutGuy:
[Click to view comic: 'RCL no. 2175']

3rd  goes out to ladyjdotnet:

2nd belongs to lima:

And the winner is:




























wait for it...

Hey, don't do it on the old man's account; it's not like I wasn't ready with a fast edit to plug in.
