GU Comics: "Joke Ideas"
Posted: Wednesday March 30th, 2011 by

It's true that I've gotten a LOT of joke ideas sent to me since yesterday's request. It's also true that I can't use most of them. I don't want to say it's the lack of funny exactly. Moreso, the ideas are so situational it's virtually impossible to drop them into a panel or four and make them "work" without providing walls of text -here or in the comic- to serve as explanation.

That being said I probably could make use of a many of the ideas that were sent to me. But they would pretty much have to be rewritten to work with the style of GU. Or, in a lot of cases, written to begin with as I received a lot of submissions that were just loose ideas. In those cases I would need to fill in the gaps.

Reading the comic and this post, keep this in mind though: I don't don't mean to rain on any of you guys. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the outpouring of ideas to try to buy me some time to get back into sync with comic.

Thanks again to all of you, and feel free to keep sending ideas in. I've always said the best GU strips have always been fan submitted.

UPDATE:
Please do not send me joke ideas via facebook.
