Remember Carl Mumpower, everyone’s favorite conservative? Well, the former Asheville City Councilman is having a contest and you could win cash money. Not a lot, mind you — probably just enough to buy yourself a fake Green Card and dinner at Mamacitas — but still, in this economy, money is money. You see, Carl has just completed a book on “reviving the real conservative mission in America” and he’s looking for your help in providing him a caricature before the book goes to press. We all know that Carl is a master of self promotion, and since he isn’t above using his clever Jedi mind tricks to fool unsuspecting media outlets (like the Mountain Xpress) into pimping out his latest project, we’re only too happy to oblige. Besides, it’s a slow news day.
Anyway, First prize is $200, Second Prize is $6, and Third Prize is 11 cents (that’s taken from 2-6-11, Ronald Reagan’s birthday). All the submissions will be included in his upcoming book and the deadline is August 27. For more information, contact Carl by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or for picture ideas, visit The Candid Conservative.
Here are some old cartoons from Molton, so you can get a look at his style:
