The Anti-BAR Cartoon Caption Contest – Nov/Dec 2008
Posted by NT Wrong on November 13, 2008
Every two months, the Biblical Archaeology Review runs a Cartoon Caption Contest. The winners and runners-up appear to be those who have chosen the most obvious, insipid, lame, and inoffensive captions.
For this reason, I have inaugurated The Anti-BAR Cartoon Caption Contest. Prizes are for the most witty, clever, and risque captions. Just to make it clear, the “Anti-” in the name for this Caption Contest is just in contradistinction to the unfunny captions in the BAR contest. Here, all winners and runners-up shall be funny. (I.e. the captions themselves don’t have to be anti-BAR — unless you want to, which would be perfectly ok with me).
Here’s the current cartoon. Submit in the Comments section below. Entries close December 15, 2008:
Other rules, notes, and suggestions:
– Be topical. See the biblioblogs for topical topics.
– Although it might be easy to write scathing, insulting, profane, and/or dirty comments, the judges have a predisposition towards such comments.
– Be funny.
– The monetary value of prizes is calculated in accordance with average rates of remuneration for articles submitted to biblical studies journals.
– If you have any doubts as to the appropriateness of your caption, submit first, think later.
