Six More Days for the New Yorker/Worth 1000 Cartoon Mashup Contest!

This is really neat. The New Yorker is teaming up with well-known Photoshop humor website Worth 1000 (lovingly known as W1K) to present the "Dogs at the Bar" Contest. And it's even being hosted at the New Yorker website; so odd to see all of that rampant scurrilousness underneath the familiar august sedate navbar (there is no such thing as an august navbar).

The way it works is, you have to create the cartoon in Aviary, and all the visual elements you will need to do it are supplied. The only constraint? It's got to be about dogs in bars! Surely a comedic goldmine. (I gently propose a ban on "hair of the dog"-related wit.)

Wow. If only I had a graphical sensibility, a proficiency in Photoshop/Aviary, or a sense of humor, I'd be all over this.
