The Winner of the Tournament of Champions

Well, that was fun. After all of that, the winner of the tournament turned out to be the number one seed. It kind of feels anticlimactic--like the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl or something.

Still, there is a reason that particular gag was ranked first. I'm quite sure there has never been a joke of mine that was shared more widely than that one. I'm still proud of it.

Thank you, everyone, who helped celebrate ten years of this silly website. Over that time I've posted over 1,000 comic strips and single panel gags!* There is no way I would have made it this far without your support and comments. (Seriously, I live for the comments.) Thank you.

There were over 350 votes cast in the tournament. I took each of those (even those who claimed a particular match up was too close to vote) and added them to a spreadsheet where I ran a random number generator to determine the three winners of the drawing. Congratulations to Chamberlin, Emily P, and Kathy Farrier. Please send me an email at with your address and I'll drop your copy of Mission Daze into the mail.

If you didn't win and would still like a copy of the book, follow this link. If you send me an email after ordering the book, I'd be happy to dedicate it to whoever you'd like.

Starting Monday, the blog will return to it's regular Monday/Thursday schedule. Thanks for indulging me these past three weeks.

*This is like a year's worth of work for my friend fellow cartoonist Kevin Beckstrom, who also has a book of missionary gags available for purchase.
