Calling all readers: Can you do what Graham couldn't?

Posted on August 10th, 2009

CONTEST: Here's your chance to join the Words & Pictures team. Fill in the speech bubbles and we'll post the best ones next week! (Details below)

This is the second time Jamie's done this to me. The first was in January 2006, when he sent me this:

He didn't have a joke in mind, he just thought it would be cool to do something set in a steam room. I rose to the challenge and, with comparatively few tweaks, it ended up being one of my favorite comics. I normally prefer more creative freedom but, as your mom could tell you, there's something fun about wearing handcuffs from time to time.

Now it's your turn.

Below is the a clean copy of the comic, as I received it. Download it, fill in the blanks however you see fit, send it back to us and we'll post the best ones next week. If Jamie and I think it's funnier than whatever we come up with, we'll actually run it as next week's comic - the first time in history that we'll have run a guest strip. I, for one, am extremely excited to see what you come up with.

Right click above and "Save Picture As..." (It looks small, but it's full size)

In case you're wondering, the smoking object is the battery for Jamie's Mac, which swelled up like that kid from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The IT guy said it would take 5 months to replace, but Jamie got a new one from The Apple Store, free of charge. I didn't find anything funny in that, so please feel free to ignore those details and go wild. I did.

Ironically, neither Jamie nor I drink coffee. But if you work late as much as we do, you'll be able to fill this mug with the salty tears of your children.
