Book Arts Improv: Call #4

Book Arts Improv logo

Welcome to the fourth, and final week of the 3rd Annual Book Arts Improv!

My studio is sooo trashed. Even Wiggum is judging me. And he eats dirt.

So here they are, the last batch of themes [Elissa tears up]:

  1. A bad idea for a first date.
  2. A non-food that you’re sure you know what it tastes like, even though you’ve never tried it.
  3. What is Wiggum dreaming about?
Silver standard poodle

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 5th. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

This week is also your last chance to get an entry in for the big prize – a set of books that includes each of the four books created during the Improv.

Everyone who has posted suggestions for each week will be entered into a drawing (one entry per person, per week). If you have participated in the Improv for more than one week, each week’s post will count as one entry – if you’ve been following me for four weeks, then your odds are better.

One more thing – if the grand prize winner has already won one of the books earlier in the month, then I’ll send the remaining three books in the set. Another drawing will then be held for the remaining book. Hopefully that all makes sense.

Good luck to everyone!

For the sake of clarification: I find nothing objectionable about transgenders, but I think ‘coming out’ on this issue at such an event, would be a horrible first date experience for the other person.

Louis –

You know, Wiggum and I are very similar in many ways. It wouldn’t surprise me to find that he likes math. I do!

Math is good.
