This strip also marks the first joke that came to mind when I thought up this concept. Sure it stereo-types fraternity guys, but what ever, it's not like any of them read web comics anyway, right? This one was a fairly big pain in the ass to draw with all the "details". And unfortunately my scaling is completely off. Also, you may have noticed I didn't use a single ruler or straight edge for this piece. I hate rulers, just as much as I hate rules. I'm a rebel I tells ya, a rebel without a cause, just like in that popular movie I saw.
Last week's contest is still going on, you have all month to enter, and I still have only received one entry. If you notice, the banner being hung up on the union awnning is coving up what the mascot will be. All it says visibly is "Go". Please people, if you are planning on entering, enter as soon as possible, and if you are not planning on entering, plan on entering. Just do it, it should be fun. And I am adding extra incentive; when you enter your submission, if you enter it with a picture of yourself (along with, or even as the submission), I will add you to my comic (and if you are good enough, maybe a recurring role.

- The mascot has to be relevant (or irrelevant)
- If you submit a drawing, submit it in JPG format, with an explanation of why
- Feel free to submit more then one, each with it's own explanation
- If you are not drawing, you can send a photographic interpretation, with explanation
- In lieu of drawing or photographing, send an in-depth description of what the mascot should be and why.
- Submit all entries with your name and home town, in email to SpidErichMan@aol.com, with a subject line of: "Every College Needs a Mascot, Contest"
All entries must be received before May 31st, 2006. Then (depending on how may good entries I get) I will pick the top three and allow my readers to vote on who, or what, the new mascot for C-M University will be. This should be interesting. I will feature all submissions eventually on their own separate page.
As far as the artwork in this strip, I am pretty proud of myself. Not only is it entertainingly simple, but also the characters are actually ON MODEL in the first and fifth panels. I will admit that I had some fun coloring them in, picking the official school colors (blue and silver, in case you missed it). I realize that there are plenty of spelling errors in this strip as well. I completely forgot to run my dialogue through word, and I didn't notice until posting the strip, and I am too lazy to go back and correct it now. So look for a special edition of this strip before announcing the winner of the contest. I wonder what the Mascot for the Chronic Bed-Wetters would have been anyway?
