First, thanks to everyone for posting the little person pictures. I'm sure my sister will see them in her dreams for weeks after Christmas. I particularly liked the Time Bandits pic since it was that movie that started her midget phobia in the first place. (When she was four, she fell asleep at a drive-in in the middle of watching Time Bandits. When she awoke after it had ended, she asked what happened. My brother, bless his soul, told her the midgets had eaten the kid.)
Someday, I'm going to hire a bunch of midgets, drive them over to her house, and have one stand at each of her windows and one stand at the door. Then I'll knock and hide.
Onto the contest.
I didn't disqualify anyone who broke the indy gender rule. Instead, I awarded a point to those that didn't.
Spankling - It's been a long time since I've felt about a word the way I now feel about *snerk*.
Kajun Firefly - "my one, my only, my fruitbat" was my favorite line.
crabby - You frighten me. ...Wanna dance?
Big Evil Dan (Parallel President) - I almost joined Lesbians against Bad People once, until I remembered I was pro-bad people. (Also, there's that whole lesbian thing.)
fuzzyman - "Data Mining Your Cat: Building Your Own USB To Feline Brain Interface." How long before they walk straight again?
El Paso - Part XIII was probably my favorite single comic of this competition.
Bogart - I think that's the best use of the motion blur background I've seen. (The old television Batman motion-blur jingle reflexively jumped into my head.)
Kitty_Kat (Computer scene) - Animism always makes me happy. One day I'm going to do a series comic with just the backgrounds as characters.
DexX - The most creative use of the indy gender rule. (Also, I liked how you used Spankling as the voice of reason. ;)
Kitty_Kat (Hot date) - I, too, thought pools were only used to make love. My belief system is tumbling.
Namgubed - I liked this premise a lot. I might steal it just to have Barbra Streisand replace Charleton Heston in the end of Soylent Green. "Soylent Green is People who need People."
Big Evil Dan (Journey to the Center of the Earth) - The last bubble tied everything in perfectly. The ironic thing about this entry was that I came very close to making the theme of this contest multi-tiered comics. It was going to be a highrise comic contest, where each comic was a floor on the building. I was gonna call it the Edwin Abbot contest.
And the winner is...

Despite the fact that the ladyj character broke the indy gender rule, lines like "virtually fondle your breasts", "I'd poke a hole in the ground and make sweet love to it", and "there aren't enought words to describe the emotions I have for you, my one, my only, my fruitbat" win him the contest. (The stars must have aligned right for Kajun, because I just realized he used my sister's name in his series' title. Labido.)
Congratulations Kajun Firefly, Geniu$, and whatever the hell else your name is. Have fun with the next contest.
I ate a hooker half a bottle of knife.
