Pop Quiz: Funny

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge is to make me laugh. That’s it. Just make something funny.

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular contest, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce the winner either tonight or tomorrow morning. Elaborate backgrounds aren’t necessary, though if you’ve got one it’s fine.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the HeroMachine Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here’s a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

The winner will receive their choice of either one item or one portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 release, or one Sketch of the Day style drawing where you pick the subject and I draw it how I like.

Good luck!

  12. So, a certain major scientific discovery was made earlier this week. Of course, the research teams involved have had more than their share of setbacks up until this point.

    Sadly, I didn’t have a whole lot of time today to work on this. And understanding the joke requires knowledge of the correct pronunciation of a certain nautical term.

    Also, I’m not even certain the joke is that funny, I’m pretty tired right now. Clever maybe, but funny? That’s really Jeff’s call.

  13. I know you i made you laugh or was it gasp last time i put this in for a critique so id thought id try for a second laugh and put it in here.

  14. Why did the old car leave the shop?
    Because it was RE-TIRED! Ha ha ha ha haaa!

    I just wanted to say that. I have no comedic talent with Hero Machine.

    Made me laugh out loud, at least! :D (Keep in mind I’m rather tired, having just gotten back from a trip, and may not be the best judge of humor right now, either…)

    jk

  19. Iscarioto? you got the right era. I’m about Jeff’s age, and I understood it without prompting. Unfortunately, the funniest jokes are usually the ones a person almost doesn’t get, which means guesswork and gambling in a contest like this. I daresay I won’t ever get most of these.

  20. ok i have to amitted it some of these are kind of funny. but mine will win
    look how huge garfiled is.

    Dude. You simply not win :D Not personal opinion. There is a lot of good reason.

    First the link is not good.
    Second the file name also not good.
    Third if you have this mentality you never win here anything.

    Bye Bye

    Ttiel: Superhero with Super problems
    Sometimes heros have also weaknesses. So here are the examples:
    Bones is afraid about dogs.
    Flightgirl has fear of flying.
    Little Sunshine is attracted by light.
    Pyromen has a pyromaniac.
    Stonehead is maniac- depressive.
    And God of nemesia has the compulsion to own the moon.
    BTW: in the fast time i forget the hand from sunshine… ok she had a amputation because she come to near to the light.

  23. I am not funny, buts ok.
    Good luck funny people!

    Fourth, and my personal opinion, but maybe others too. Your pics just isn’t not funny, sorry Ninja but true. The above comment was way funnier than your pic lol

    I hate it when I’m trying to type and my 2 yr old grabs my lap top lol…that should have said your pic just isn’t funny. But seriously Ninja you shouldn’t be a negative critic to others on here in the way you’re doing it, it’s not what any of us are here for. Don’t know where the Ninja name comes from but if you study Ninjitsu like I did, then you would see that Ninjas are not seen or heard, they just strike. On here that means you should just put your pic up and hope for the best.

  26. Im pretty sure that Jeff doesn’t like for people to “bash” to try to “critique” other peoples works during a contest so I am not getting in the middle of all that. I would say save any comments untill the next actual critique and post them there. Besides pretty much everyone knows that the pop quiz posts can be pretty random and are quick so just have fun and try to come up with whatever you can.

  27. well i was going to be in the pop quiz but i didnt feel like it next time i’ll be in the next pop quiz or contest.

  28. OK folks, contest closed and I am starting the downloads. I hope there are some good laughs here, I need ‘em!

    If you weren’t already disqualified for a) a bad link, b) not naming your file properly, and c) asking for a prize before the contest was even over, this little bit of negativity would have destroyed your chances. I hate that kind of crap.
