Caption Contest!!!

I just read that Sunstone Magazine is going to be doing a special issue of LDS-themed comics, and they announced an open call for submissions!!!

Since I love light stories about Mormons -- and since improving my illustration/comics-drawing skills is right up there on my list of goals -- I'd really, really like to submit something. The only problem is that my plate is too full at the moment, so there's no way I'll have time to come up with something good between now and May 15.


It hit me that some of the illustrations I've already done might make good single-panel comics if only they had really hilarious captions! This is where you come in. I've reprinted below some of the ones that I think have the most potential:






(Feel free to look around for others if these aren't the most inspiring.)

Naturally, if you come up with something that turns one of these into a one-panel comic funny enough for Suntone, I'll split the credit and payment with you.

(Given that the comic will occupy about 1/4 page, at $25 per page, you could potentially win as much as $3.13 -- not to mention the corresponding fame and glory!)

A. It had been a long time since either of them had had a decent meal, and Elder Jensen was really starting to worry about the way his companion was looking at him.

Yeah, I'm not sure what it says about me that my mind goes straight to the cannibalism joke.

Third rate at best, but it's something:

A. Elder, the Armor of God doesn't include an "Apron of Good Cooking".
A. Elder, I swear this recipe won't make you as sick as the last one.
A. My Mom spent a whole day teaching me how to cook before I went to the MTC.

B. Mom, Dad, Suzy just said she hates church.
B. Like most good Mormon parents, Aaron and Stephanie had no idea one of their daughters was lesbian.

C. Basketball court + Ribbons = Mormon Haute Couture
C. The husband in the couple eating cake in the middle: "So, how many more of these do we have tonight?" Wife: "Only three tonight. Don't you love having cheap apartments in the ward?"
C. Wife eating cake oblivious to the fact that she is standing at the center of a basketball court, "Pink with orange. Now that is cheap."

D. Ephesians 5:22, "Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord." And that is why it doesn't matter how many you get right; we'll still win.

A. "The apron says DON'T, Elder." "Yeah, maybe I shoulda skipped the tongue..."

(sorry, couldn't resist...)
