Fringe Science & Beyond (4 a day limit)

Far Out Science/ The Paranormal, The Mystical, The Unexplained

Science: The Lighter Side ($20 voucher)

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Dark Humor, Light Humor, Comic Humor ~ All Humor (Based on Science)!

For this challenge, all entries must be based on science, whether Mainstream or from the Fringe: and all entries here should bring a smile to the viewer ~ possibly a big loud laugh. The funnier the better!

Don’t see anything to laugh about in science? Some ideas with a possibility…

Time Travel
Space Travel
Tech (computers, smart phones, et al)
Future Visions (Sure, they could be funny… maybe we’ll de-volve into ‘shrooms or get so smart we can’t support our heads because our brains will be too big)
Science Gone Awry (Not necessarily funny and it happens all too often… but given a funny slant, who knows?)

Well, I know you get the general gist of this… humor can be subtle or outrageous, humor can be dark or cheery, humor can be creepy and surreal and/or simply silly.

Please be sure it has a scientific or a pseudo-scientific theme since that’s what we focus on at Cutting Edge!

All mediums are welcome: shirts and artwork both invited here.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Choose the funniest – the most well done. You may vote for more than one.

If you’re a member and especially if you enter, PLEASE VOTE! There has been a drop-off in the voting for the past couple challenges; without the votes, it’s not a challenge. We do NOT want to discontinue these – so please, please support us at the ballot box! We will try and send reminders out if possible.

On the other hand, in accord with Bubble policy (and the policy of Cutting Edge), we will not tolerate padding of the ballot box! This means, no solicitation from an outside source (your friends or fans who don’t belong); no campaigns via Bubblemail or on other sites like Facebook to acquire votes; no voting from multiple accounts! Voting is monitored and We Will Know. Any such activity will result in the removal of your image, possibly expulsion from the group. Let the artwork win on merit, not popularity!

(Any such removals at consensus of the hosts will not be negotiable. It may sound harsh, but padding the ballot isn’t fair to other members of the group who follow rules – and in the case of $20 vouchers, it constitutes fraud.)

Rewards & Prizes

Provided it gets at least 4 votes, the winner will receive a $20 voucher from the Bubble, as well as a banner and be show-cased on our Group Home Page.

In the event of a tie for 1st Place, both winners will be honored in accord with Bubble policy.

Runners up also get a banner and a mention. If we have more than 20 entries this will be the Top 10 – provided individual entries get some votes. As mentioned, there has been a drop-off in voting for the last few challenges, so PLEASE VOTE if you entered!!! If we have less than 20 entries, or if some aren’t voted for although they’re on the list, we will recognize the Top 5.

Additional Information

Work must be accepted in the group to qualify! Be sure your work adheres to the focus of the challenge and the group; all entries deemed otherwise will be removed at the discretion of the hosts.

Entries end on April 27th – voting closes May 4th. As members too, hosts may enter if desired.

Hope you’ll have a lot of fun with this one ~ looking forward to a lot of clever, funny work!
