Well, I feel kinda bad about winning the last contest, because it was one of those "First one of the finalists to post wins." So, I'm gonna keep my mouth shut and try not to be proud.

But...on the other hand, I want to yell and shout about winning my first contest! Yay me! I rule! Man, if I weren't me, I'd wish that I was.

So because of this, I came up with the rules for this CC. They are fairly simple.

You have two options:

#1. Make a comic with no dialogue, no thought bubbles, and no narration. The only thing that can have any sort of writing is the title.

#2. Your comic must have WAY too much dialogue. Both right and left characters in EACH panel must completely fill the bubble. I'm talking serious conversations here. How can you tell if its enough? Make sure that each bubble messes up the background, so that the characters appear "forced" beneath the floor. Also, no "filler" dialogue. It's all gotta be relevant.

I really like minimalist comics and I really like comics that use too much dialogue, so don't worry about me preferring one kind over the other. If it's funny, you'll win.

Remember, if you choose option #2, I have the right to void any comic I feel doesn't have enough dialogue. I'll send you a PM if I void one of your comics.

Any questions?

None? Good. Go!

Oh yeah, I'll be judging one week from today on Monday. And about option #2... you don't have to go insane, just a lot more than average.

Ok, now go.

Hey, you wouldn't've made it unless you made it to the finals. And once it gets down to five or so "whoever posts first" is no less arbitrary than my actual opinion, so hey. Feel happy.

*blows a raspberry* It's only because you have no life and constantly check the forums!!!

*grins* Just kidding. Hell, I'm the only person to enter it twice- I'm glad I got a mention.

Now, for yours...

How many entries are we allowed? I'd like to take a shot with each option... will it be worth my time?

Here's the minimalist.

And one I had to enter as a satire/tribute rather than as anything that is laugh out loud funny.

That last strip is now out of date - the other one has died now. I'm quite sad now...

I don't know how rules-compliant this is, but I have this actual George S. Patton quote here, which I found funny in a twisted way... hope you do, too...

More fun with Patton:

"Now I want you to remember that no ******* ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb ******* die for his country.

Now, there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We're not holding anything. Let the hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy! We're going to hold on to him by the nose, and we're gonna kick 'em in the ass!

Thirty years from now, when you're sitting around your fireside with your grandson on your knee and he asks you, "What did you do in the great World War II," you won't have to say, "Well... I shoveled **** in Louisiana.

The Nazis are the enemy! Wade into them! Spill *their* blood! Shoot *them* in the belly! We're gonna keep fighting!! Is that CLEAR?!! We're gonna attack all night we're gonna attack the next morning!! If we're not VICTORIOUS!! Let no man come back alive!!!

When you put your hand into a bunch of goo that a moment before was your best friend's face, you'll know what to do.

We're not just going to shoot the *******s, were going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads on our tanks. "

Sigh.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but now I'm really curious about umfumdisi's challenge. I feel reasonably sure about six of the eight plays, but I'm really not sure about the other two. I'll throw out my guesses, though: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth?
