Alright! The peeps have spoken, so we're going to do another thinking type contest, only I'm not going to ask you to think too hard because I will feel guilty if you break something. Anyway, this contest is called the Zom-Com Contest, which you have probably figured out if you actually read the titles to my posts. And if you don't, PBBT! on you.
Anyway. The purpose of my contests is pretty simple: make me laugh the hardest and you'll win. It ain't rocket science, people. And your task is to make me laugh with a zombie-related object of your own creation. Note this last bit, folks: linking to someone else's awesomely hilarious zombie story will not win you this title. You must make it up yourself.
So what qualifies? Anything, really. Make a lolzombie. Write a zombie haiku or a limerick. Tell a zombie joke. Make up titles of books about me and zombies, or you and zombies, or you and me and zombies. Write a song about zombies. Photoshop a picture of Zombie Richard Simmons. You get the idea, right? Anything goes, so long as its yours, so long as it's undead, and so long as it's snarfy. Post it in the comments section if you can. If it's a graphic, you can put it on your own blog and put a link in the comments section, or you can email it to me direct at carr dot harr at yahoo dot com.
I'll give you a week for the contest, which means that entries will close June 17th at noon EST. I will announce the winner by the 19th. Enter as many times as you like. The more, the snarfier. But please keep your entries PG-13. I write for teenagers, remember?
The winner will receive one of the infamous Wonder That Is My Blog prize packs. Contents vary, but at minimum this one will contain a $25 gift card to the online book retailer of your choice and a copy of Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth, because zombie books written by people named Carrie are kewl. I linked to the old prize packs so you could get some idea of their contents yesterday, but I guess I'd better do it again just so you can bask in the awesomeness.
See what I mean?
Alright. Did I forget any essential bits of info? Ask me in the comments. Otherwise, bring on the zom and the com. I promise not to drink anything while I read your comments, because I expect you to be funny.
No pressure or anything.
Last night, I realized that there is such a thing as leaving a contest TOO open-ended, so I decided to give you some prompts to help get y'all started and avoid any flaming brains. (Although the zombies might like that.) The contest is still open to whatever bit of Zom-Com you want to put together; you do not have to use the prompts. But I realize that not all of you have the time or inclination to obsess about funny zombie stuff like I do.
So... if you're running low on ideas and still want to enter the contest, how about making a lolzombie out of one of these? We've got an armless zombie, and a zombie ordering from McDonalds. There's a free lol creator here, because I'm all about enabling zombie nonsense. You could also caption one of the photos if you're not interested in fooling around with the lol creator thingy.
OR... write a haiku about Zom Cruise. (That would be a zombie Tom Cruise, if you're relatively new to the Wonder That Is My Blog and are unfamiliar with the fabulousness that is ZC.) OR... give me some titles and/or hooks for a book about me and zombies.
There! Does that help?
