not to sound like an snobby rules-lawyer or anything, but as much as I like these cut&paste comics, I don't think they should be considered for the contest, as they violate the rules which state: Come up with the funniest caption and/or dialogue for the above image
(yes yes, I know they also say that one can load the provided image into an image editing program and play around with said image, but that violates the original intent of the contest, IMO)

however, as Roger is the one judging this thing, my opinions on the subject amount to a pile of crap, I guess...

That's a nugget I've been mulling over myself. I'll weigh in officially tomorrow tho, because I fear I have alot to say, and I'm tired and stoned right now.

I will say this:

Though I don't believe they should be included on principle...

Just kicks too much ass not to win.

sounds like sour grapes to me...and they have to count, because roger has already included them as an entry, and its too late to back out.

eh, maybe it is sour grapes, but like I said, I don't think it's fair to those who "followed the rules".
Maybe Roger could use those "cut&paste" ones as guest comics or something.

it's up to him really.
his judgement on this is final, being it his contest and all.

Contest Rules:

-Come up with the funniest caption and/or dialogue for the above image
-Right click and "save as" and edit it in your favorite image program
-Post it here, or e-mail it to roger@justanothervice.com and I'll post it for you!
-Funniest comic gets a prize!!!



It doesn't say you have to use the whole image. It doesn't say cutting and pasting is illegal. Editing the image is allowed. What rule did I break?!

"come up with the funniest caption for the above image", not "the above image modified however you see fit". yes, it's true the rules don't say one has to use the whole image, or that contestants can't cut&paste the image, but it doesn't say contestants are allowed to either. it's all a matter of how the rules are interpreted. you did it one way, most of us did it the other. however, IMO, pasting in images from other jaV comics breaks the spirit of the rules...

but like i said, this whole discussion is a moot point anyways, as it's not up to any of us. i'm just trying to offer up some opinions about this whole deal. y'know stir up conversation, make people think about stuff.

Before I start, I'd like to say that I respect everyone's opinions on this matter, and I know you all have a stake in the outcome of this contest.

That said, I've decided that excluding the comics in mention would actually infringe on the "spirit" of the contest more than their inclusion. The contest was never really about "the rules" it was about "unleashing the collective wit of my newfound fan community".

However, before any of these cut and paste comics were entered, and I did not think I would have enough money for a shirt - the prize was going to be YOUR comic, framed, autographed and inked with YOUR punchline. Now, obviously, if an edited comic wins, I can't send them the template as a prize.

As it stands, I plan to give out more than one prize. I will give the T-shirt to the funniest comic - period. I will give the template to the funniest comic to follow the letter of the law. If the comics should be one in the same, the y will recieve both.

I'd like to add that the judging for the comics has not begun, and will not begin until the deadline sunday night. (I'm thinking no later than 5PM Eastern) In order to keep the judging as objective as possible, I have asked several non-partisan people - each schooled in the arts of humor - to assist me in this very difficult task. The final decision will be mine alone, but their opinions will help me reach it.

I really wish I could afford to give a prize to every contestant, because just the fact that you took the time to enter fills my heart with joy.

Rest assured, this will not be the last time you'll have an opportunity to win free shit from this franchise. So stay with me! PLEASE!
