Word balloon contest!

May 27, 2009

While I’m busy, I thought I’d keep you guys entertained with a word balloon contest. The rules are simple: I post some panels with the original caption erased and you guys think up a new one. Do this for just one panel or all of them, just number your answer accordingly so we all know which suggestion goes with which panel. Of course, coming up with several suggestions for the same panel is fine too. A week from today, June 3, I’ll pick the five I liked the best and put them up for a vote, and I will let that poll run for another week. The winner will receive a cool prize. Of course, I’ll be updating while this contest is going as well and keep a clearly visible link under the menu so you guys can still easily find this post. Have fun!
