Third Anniversary Contest

Have you ever wanted to write a Flea Snobbery cartoon, but the author wouldn't let you? You can stop suffering in silence now: Your chance is here! This blog is approaching its third anniversary, and on that day a cartoon written by you, my dear reader, will be published.

"What must I do?," you might be wondering. Well, it couldn't be easier! Just leave a comment on this entry telling what should there be in this empty dialog balloon:


I will exert my subjectivity over all the proposals left by Tuesday, June 28th. On July 1st, the blog's birthday, the winner will be announced, who will take home a personalized avatar drawn in the style of Flea Snobbery (which is to say, poorly).

(Well, this is a budget blog. You weren't expecting a blender, were you?)

Are you interested? Then get your creative neurons to work! This entry's comments will be closed down on June 28th at an uncertain hour. Meanwhile, only commenters who properly identify themselves will be admitted. Go for it!

06-28-2011: The uncertain hour is upon us! The time for submissions is ended and the comments for this entry are consequently closed. The winner will be announced next Friday, July 1st.

"Don't worry, my friend! Yes, I know what you have gone through. I know you have been unjustly accused, flogged and publicly humiliated... But you can rest assured that at least I will respect your autonomy and not impose values on you that are alien to your culture, like, say, presumption of innocence and protection against torture."


"No, you don't need to thank me. I would do this for anyone."

"I can't understand non-believers. How do you people deal with the hopelessness of a life without God?"

"I can't understand non-smokers. How do you people deal with the anxiety and lack of concentration?"

"This is our legacy to the humanity of the 36th century: a bunch of things we thought and that in that time will be ancient enough to be universal truths of great wisdom."

"O, Lord! You have blessed me by bringing me to Your presence. Now, please, grant me an answer. Why do You, who are all-powerful, never manifest Yourself openly before men? Why do you always make your will known through prophets and portents?"

"Oh, it's quite simple. That way, if things go wrong... no one will be able to prove I was behind it all."
