Everyone's entry is so funny^^

Here's mine:






New critters have settled in the area around Watership Down. Pipkin is determined to befriend them all but one still eludes him...

*queue Ash-style special training sequence*

Now... with his trusty Zubat (Name: Darkling) he is finally ready...!

---

Text if my crude writing is unreadable:

Hazel: Training every day, Pipkin has really become fit since he joined the Owsla, hasn't he?
Bigwig: yes... If only his motivation were more fit for the Owsla, as well...
Pipkin: I WILL catch you, Articuno-!

Thanks Vesper, Claws.

Darkling: that's rather creepy :pipkin-oh

Chibiscuit: if I understand correctly, Pipkin is playing Pokémon GO? :sarcasm and I thought that rabbits were the only creatures still free from the influence of technology...

Thank you, Hawkbit, for the comment :D

I'm glad to see all these entries. Good job, everyone!

We have decided to extend the deadline to August 31. This will give people more time to participate.

Chipster: if it were up to Bigwig, that would still be the case. And yes, he is playing Pokémon GO^^

Oh the deadline is extended? Hmm maybe I can make another entry then...

I'm so glad about an extension, I've been working the last few days and haven't had the chance to start mine! This is great news :D

ENTRIES ARE DUE IN FOUR DAYS.

This is a parody of my novel's mission statement. The real thing can be found on my writing thread.

-----------------------------------

My primary objective with The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is to kill the reader – preferably in 5.383640278 seconds, but 5.383640279 seconds is ok, too. To inspire people to burn down the world and/or go to prison is my goal. Another way to take a quiz is by using my novel to get a dead mouse on a crescent roll with some steak. It's better than getting a B on our report card, right? And if people simply mow the lawn, that’s also good.

To this end, The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is a deep novel. And that’s alright; we can't ignore the Star Spangled Banner forever. But how can we go outside if we're already outside?



How can a made-up world with people who exist only in ink and paper have any bearing on the concrete figures surrounding us? Well, it doesn't. Actually, my novel can have no effect on the world and you know what? This is <CENSORED> None of what I'm writing is relevant and we apologize for the over exaggerated break to follow.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well, oysters come into play. Some were terrible, and some (to my pleasant surprise) have such a juicy flesh and tender inners. I want The History of the Vacuum Cleaner to be more than a carpenter. I want it to be a tree. Happy birthday, by the way. Something that will sound as pleasant as nails scraping against an old chalkboard. Delicious.

There are only 72 ways to know, but I have worked very hard on my novel. (Not really) There are few things I am truly devoted to, and The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is not one of them.

RANDOM GIF TIME




There is so much effort I have never put into this thing. And, well, I eat as fast as a train that left Chicago at 8:02 AM and is heading for a train that left Ohio at 9:43 AM. No matter the end result, it will all be pineapples.

I don’t know what impact my face will have, whether sesquipedalian or idiosyncratic. But it’ll do something (Not). Maybe, by publishing this novel, I’ll finally :pipkin-oh

I think this is best described as "brilliantly absurd".  Absolutely hilarious.

:sarcasm That sounds awfully exciting for a book about vacuum cleaners.  I want a copy.

I don't think I will be able to make a second entry.

Bright Side: That truly is absurd and therefore I love it. I agree with chipster "brilliantly absurd" best describes it!^^

But how can we go outside if we're already outside?
I feel like randomly saying that next time I go out with family or friends :D

Here is my second entry:

My French is rusty, but I believe it's 'This is not Pipkin!'

I'm planning an entry! I'll get it up tomorrow. :)

Chibiscuit, good art! What does that line mean?
Thanks! :) I'm quite happy with how it turned out as well. And like Crackers said it means "This here is not Pipkin."

It's a parody of a work by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte called "La trahison des images" (the treachery of images). Also known as the "ceci n'est pas une pipe" (this here is not a pipe). Perhaps I should have explained that.

btw the use of Season 3 Pipkin is intentional.  :pipkin2

Here's my entry! A parody of Twitter - Critter.

Oh, I so wanted to keep going on and on... maybe I'll continue with some in my art thread. I did make everything, but of course I did use images from the show :lol

I'll link it because it's long and better full-size - Here it is!

time to sleep :fiver3
