The Funniest Creature Championships - Round 2 Semifinals

Welcome to Round 2 of the Funniest Creature Semifinals. Right now, the Cullens are SMASHING Mutant Richard Simmons from the Planet Nonose in Round 1. If you haven't voted, you should. Or at least go and see a Muppet beating the bleep out of Edward Cullen.

Today, you've got to choose between two very snarfy contenders. Which do you think is funnier--Merpires or corncob wielding werecats?

CREATURE 1: Merpires
One of my current WIPs opens with a supernaturally beautiful boy standing in a clearing by the lake. He belongs in a commercial for hair gel. He's so hot he practically lights the water on fire. And he jumps out of his pants.

His legs morph into fins, of course. It's my personal opinion that leaping out of one's pants is the most ridiculous supernatural power ever. It's right up there with sparkles. And sloshing.

This illustration is, of course, post pants-leap.



CREATURE 2: Corncob wielding werecats
Our second contestant is an incestuous, virgin-soul-eating werecat. I'm sorry to say that he was a little upset when we made fun of his 80s hair last week, so he got a new do. Here it is:

CHEESE!


I wouldn't laugh at him anymore, either. Because you do remember what happens to people that laugh at the freaky looking werecats, right?

DEATH BY COB, that's what!


So....what do you think? Vote in the comments! The winner will face off in the finals next week. OOOOOOOOOH.

Seriously creepy... even though the corncob sounds awesome I'm afraid I'll have to go with MERPIRES instead... the scary of the werecats just freaked me out!!

I laughed, sorry, now where's the garlic? I think that expression on the cob werecat is priceless. So he has my vote. Lock your doors Carrie.

I can't even believe you are making of one of The King's movies!! (gasp...eye roll...dead faint).

Ok, so it wasn't his best. And it definitely wins funniest creature.
But mainly because the idea of jumping out of one's pants is sort of cool.lol

Oh wow. Merpires all the way! (P.S. I think I use the word "wow" when commenting on your blog more than any other. This is a compliment.)
