Wicked caption contest

The North Coast Journal and its weekly comic strip Seven-O-Heaven are teaming up to offer a caption contest based on local author Amy Stewart’s new book, Wicked Bugs. Above is the official Humboldt Herald entry.

Your mission, should you be bored enough to accept it, is to author your own one-panel comic to be included in next week’s Journal. Hell, we’ll even throw in copies of this issue’s featured books.

    Hey, y’all, these are funny. Just so’s you know, this contest works kinda like Sundance: you gotta submit ’em to the official judging body (the Journal, in this case) in order for them to be considered official entries. Unlike Sundance, we’re relatively indiscriminate — we accept just about everything.

    So the Herald is like Slamdance in this (admittedly lousy) analogy.

    You’re pretty laughable, HiFi. Are you an expert clown?

    Well I wanted to be part of Slamdance too.

    “Page 42…Hymenoptera. Hells yeah, this should be good!(Hmm…Not quite what I was thinking but I guess ovipositors are kinda kinky)”
