I was doing a little research on what is available in the way of tools to create your own web comics, easily. I found a greate site that was sort of along the lines of what I was thinking of.

Strip Generator lets you create your own comic strips with drag & drop ease, with lots of characters, props, creatures, shapes, talk & think balloons, etc.

It's a lot of fun to play with.


And now for the contest...

While playing around with some of the stuff there, I saw a few familiar things that reminded me of this site and created this little single frame comic:

SNAG-0367.png

All you have to do is fill in the talk/think bubbles with the conversation that took place between mouser & cody, during this little visit.

Mouser will be giving away a prize of a mug to the winner...with the winner's captioned image printed on it! (how cool is that?!)

Deadline to submit your captioned image is March 21, 2008.

Good luck! I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.  :D

Ok. Let's see if anyone gets this?

Cody: You're not drinking your coffee?
Mouser: You have a beak and you only filled my cup half way...

Are we allowed to post more than 1 idea?

Mouser: hm, perhaps we could send them some unicows.

it looks like mouser has a thought balloon and cody has a speech balloon so here's what i think...

cody: would you like a cup of tea, mouser? there aren't any worms in it.

mouser: if that is true then why has your beak grown like Pinocchio's nose?

I think we all now know what the conversation was:

Cody: It's ok to put the DCserver root password in my AOL email signature, right?
Mouser: Oh bother..

That's not fair...you aren't allowed to have such a great caption. What if yours wins? It's going to be hard to beat that one.

As long as Cody is a talk bubble, and Mouser is a thought bubble

Cody:So there I was, just minding my own business...
Mouser:Did I ever finish coding that last FARR update?... Oh wait, I'm supposed to be talking to Cody!

Since Cody talks and mouser thinks:

Cody: So, mouser, what kind of tea is this? It's really good!

mouser: I bet you taste like chicken...

Cody talking, mouser thinking... and apologies to TucknDar for the blatant ripoff :P

Cody: I removed the password for the subversion user, it was too much hassle.
mouser: I bet you taste like chicken...

No problem, f0dder. Actually I think mouser's thoughts would suit pretty much anything Cody says ;)

Cody with a British Accent: "....finally, Mr. Bondmouser, I infect DonationCoder with a trojan and take over the world! Mwa ha ha ha ha!"

Mouser: .oO (You'll never get away with this! I know karate, kung-fu, tae kwon do, and other Chinese words!)

TaeKwonDo is Korean... karate is a Japanese derivative of Kung Fu... Watch it, Deozaan, you'll be ruffling some feathers (heh, heh - pun accidental)  :P

Cody: Oh, man, mouser. I'm so glad the server is back up. It felt like I'd lost my home. I don't know how to really thank you...
mouser: I bet you taste like chicken...


Any more chicken-jokes? ;)

Cody:
So I join the DC Coder's Breakfast Club and figure the best way to start is with a cup of Java...

Mouser:
Oh brother... Bird brain seems more "F" than "C", "+" or "#" today...

Cody: ...someone hacked the server by exploiting some old software to get root access.  Thankfully they were only in the machine for 1-2 hours before I discovered them and locked down access to all services...
Mouser: a talking chicken, that's all we need...
