To celebrate our fantastic trip to fantastic Brighton for the potentially fantastic Comic Expo on the 19th and 20th (This Weekend) we ran a little competition on the forums. It's like we started a real web comic!
We gave the forumites a comic with the speech bubbles left blank and let them do their worst. A few took "do your worst" literally. The following are a selection of the best.
Stav is so lazy he can't even write his own dialogue:
[Note From Weebl]
It's a bit of a scoop getting Log to write an article for us. He runs Law of the Playground and has a nice web log and even a book out. All we have to do in order to get him to write stuff for us is mention these facts. Hopefully it's been worth it.
Questions can be boiled down into six categories; WHICH, WHAT, WHEN, HOW, WHO and WHY. If you've come out of a coma with different music taste and amnesia, you might also say things like "I like Starsailor?" This is also a question, but I don't know how that works, so let's forget about it.
Once all these questions are answered, we can get back to the proper stuff, like inventing massive sandwiches and handing out flyers for nightclubs that don't exist, like Big Jeff's Dynamite Caddyshack. So, here I go.
Foreword by Weebl
As some of you may know, we were recently in discussions with a fairly major Hollywood studio over a potential film based around the Badger Badger Badger cartoon. I couldn't make the first meeting about the script but Joel (Bizunth) Jessup who is the main writter on the project kindly took minutes for me. Since we are all excited about this I thought it would be great to post them here for you all to look at as well.
As you are probably aware there are many, many, many odd people out there on internets. Most of these are just plain stupid and beling led along an idiotic path of what can only be described as "Mmmnnnnnnnggghh!!!" by their fellow morons on various internet chatrooms and forums devoted to their chosen distraction from the realities of life.
A prime example is the Scissors Paper Stone multiplayer chat lobby. So let's not pretend we don't have our fair share here, because we do.
They tend not to wish me dead though.
Hamsters are fluffy, cute and tend to leave tiny bits of poop everywhere. It's safe to say they are harmless on the whole and surely their owners would be equally cuddly? Not the sort of people to want to kill ,say, a web animator. I mean you'd have to be a complete and utter drooling halfwit to think that a cartoon such as Mr Stabby is encouraging kids to go out and harm their pets.
You know? Since cartoons aren't real and all.
It's not like Tom and Jerry needed to ever put "No animals were harmed in the making of this cartoon" in the end credits is it? That's because those animals were drawn.
However I'm clearly wrong as these, I'm trying to pick my words carefully now, feckless cretins wish severe and painful death upon my person for such a thing.
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the wonderful people who value a cartoon rodent life above that of a human:
The last post is especially lovely.
It seems they've removed the thread. Here is a cached copy for you all:
Here be the premise: I, (that is me, Stewart Williams, sometime contributor to this biomechanical parish), have been set a once-monthly challenge. The esteemed Weebl will, every 30 days or so, send me ten subjects. Then I write about them.
No really, that’s it.
I can write whatever I like – gags, anecdotes, stories, scripts, whatever. I just have to write about them. I don’t need to know anything about them. I just have to write about them. What I write doesn’t have to make sense I just... yep, you’ve got the idea.
And most importantly – you don’t have to read them. Not if you don’t want to. Its not like there’s a gun to your head or anything.
Anyhoo – here’s the first installment of what we’re calling, (for want of any better title):
