First Previous Next Last
This is Monday's comic. With luck,
Wednesday's comic will be posted at some point on Thursday. I
have one day of panicky marking to go; after that, the marking will
only be ridiculously strenuous, as per usual.
Okay, welcome to the first West of Bathurst contest of the summer. Here are the rules:
In the comic posted on Friday, June 21st, Barbara blurts out,
"The mouse came back to life because Marie was--", then shuts herself
up. She now seems to be having more luck keeping her secret,
whatever it is. However, those of you who are frustrated at all
the non-information should note that Barbara will
complete the sentence soon. Your challenge, if you choose to
accept it, is to complete the sentence yourself. You should do
this by posting in the comments section. Those who guess
correctly will be awarded one point (phrasing doesn't have to be exact,
but the gist has to echo what Barbara actually says). I'll
also award one point to the answer I deem the most creative.
Here's the catch: the sentence will be completed (or the
general idea of what Barbara would have said if she hadn't stopped
herself will be revealed, at any rate) at some point over the course of
the next two weeks. This could happen in the very next comic, or
it could happen five comics from now. And...you get only one try.
If you submit your try now, you won't risk missing the floating
deadline, but it's possible you'll miss further clues. Or maybe
you won't. Who knows? Torture is fun.
So...submit your answers to the comments section.
Repetition is permissible (i.e., if you think someone who has
already submitted is correct, you may steal the answer); it is
therefore possible for more than one person to "win." There will
be a contest every week (yes, even if this first one hasn't ended by
Monday, I'll post another one then). At the end of the summer,
the points will be tallied, and the person with the most of them will
eventually win a signed copy of the as-yet-nonexistent WoB collection.
Go to it, everyone. May the odds be ever in your favour.
