Disaster Contest…

Last week, I posted a photoshop I had made of a highway. You might have seen it…

It took a lot of work to create that. More than you want to know. Now I am challenging you to do as good… or better!

Lucky for you, I did the hard part already, and I’m sharing the template below.

Your task, replace the tornado with another apt disaster that looms ahead if we “KEEP LEFT” and keep going “Forward” instead of taking that last exit.

I already know some of the other ideas I had before deciding to go with the tornado, and I suspect some of you will come up with those. I’m also hoping to see some ideas I never even thought of.

As always, the winners get their work posted here and receive “HIGH PRAISE!”

If you’d like, you can post your entries on your own sites, I just ask that you link this post if you do.

The following instructions are cryptic to keep the spambots confused. If you cannot decipher the instructions, I do not want to receive your entry anyway!

Send your entries to me, Mr. Right, via the letter after “d” mail using this address with all of the stupid colons removed, no spaces or brackets, and the proper punctuation added…

write:the:right:place [a-in-a-circle-thingy] [the letter before h:mail] [period-thingy] [c:o:m]

I trust you can decode that okay? Good!

Please submit final versions as gif files, if at all possible, and try to keep the size at 960 x 720, just as the template is now. You can play with the highway signs and the foreground if you really want to, but you better come up with something good if you do!

Now, here’s the template I promised…

We’ll let the contest run until sometime on Labor Day afternoon before posting the worthy entries, and then the rest of the Moon-Nukers can decide whose is the most bacon-worthy. Let the apocalypse commence!

  1. The plain, featureless blankness of oblivion provided by your template looks pretty awful all by itself.


  2. Left lane or right lane, the template looks like I’m going into the light. I’m not sure I’m ready to go into the light. Wouldn’t be prudent at this point.


  3. “The Convention Made Us Think–How About You? –No?”

    [Dedicated to “The Empty Chair”]

    Did you think it enough to be “likeable”?
    Did you believe it sufficed to be “cool”?
    You once promised command of the land and the seas,
    For four years you have played us for fools!

    Bernanke’s abusing his printing press, .
    Geithner (tax cheat) never had one good plan.
    And we found you’d betrayed us and lied to us.
    When you claimed we’d “unite” at your hands!

    You still haven’t a clue as to what to do,
    To make jobs, spend much less, calm our days.
    So you get up and turn on your Media whores,
    And go golfing in a Choom** induced haze.

    You made food stamps a “virtue”, you degraded our fisc*,
    You bowed lower and lower each day.
    To the tyrants and despots whose great goal in life,
    Was to kill the American Way.

    You said, “I’ll do it in three or I’m outta here”;
    Now you say “I just need another four”.
    Since you spit on our seniors and crippled our land,
    We’d be crazy to let you “help” more!

    * Fisc = the treasury of a nation – see “national debt” rating downgrades.
    ** Choom = both a noun (marijuana) and a verb (“to smoke marijuana”)
    Barry Soetoro aka Barry Obama aka Barrack Hussein Obama aka … CREATED NEW WAYS TO GET HIGH. See, http://www.buzzfeed.com/gavon/
    obama. These included BOTH marijuana and cocaine aka coke aka blow aka “Barry Fuel”…

  5. Steve, the hard work has been done. All you would need to do is “place” a pic of Jar Jar on the template, and move it to the background! You could then adjust the size and/or placement of him, and your done! Simplest Photoshop ever!

  7. Your work is excellent. I LOVE this. The other submissions are ok, but none are nearly as good as the original. Bravo.
