Cartoon 1000!!!!


1000 is enough of anything. But the main reason I'm stopping the cartoon caption contest is because I'm out of ideas. Evil Editor has encountered so many occupations, animals, situations, etc. that it's hard not to repeat ideas.

When I started the cartoons I had no idea if they would last any longer than several other features that fizzled out after a few months or weeks. And they wouldn't have if they hadn't been so funny. In fact, the number of duds we've had are probably outnumbered by the hilarious "Cartoons for Super-Intellectuals," which aren't included in the 1000.

We can think of a new feature to try, or I can post "classic" cartoons from years ago every day. Or I can post the duds we've had in hopes that someone can improve on the chosen caption.

To celebrate the occasion, I've prepared a short film that collects the cartoons featuring my most famous client, John Grisham, as well as the always-popular religion cartoons. The credits at the end of the film honor as many caption writers as I could come up with, not just the ones who wrote the captions for the Grisham and religion cartoons. These are the people without whom the cartoon feature would have died out long ago.

The cartoon music is by Kevin MacLeod. The credits music is from Apple. The film is at YouTube, because it's bigger and clearer there. Here's the link.

I laughed.

This makes me wonder if Grisham knows about these captions. : )

These were fun. I'm at a loss as to what we can do next, though. *thinks seriously*

A great retrospective. Thanks for offering an excuse to goof off and an outlet for inappropriate humor.

I'll miss this feature. 1000 was a good run.

Maybe it's time for The Secret Office Diary of Mrs Varmighan...

A THOUSAND. That's insane.

This was a fun feature. Sorry to see it go, but I understand.

Hey! You forgot to credit Anon in your clip!

stacy said...

Perhaps, like Anon, the credit was invisible.
