Series One, Card #30!

This gag definitely inspired by a Monty Python sketch... do you have a better one?

Series One, Card #29!

Here's another card in which the caption isn't what someone is saying... but maybe you have an idea for something funny for him to say?

Series One, Card #28!

An alternate gag I had for this one was, "Excuse me, have any of you misplaced a head?" But I liked this one better... but if you come up with an even better one, I'll use it!

Series One, Card #27!

One of the few gags I came up with that isn't supposed to be what someone in the photo was saying... but maybe you can come up with one?

Series One, Card #26!

Not my funniest gag... got a better one?

Friday, June 25, 2010

Series One, Card #25!

Got a better funny line for this card? Leave it in the comments!

Series One, Card #24!

Another gag that immediately came to mind when I saw this photo! Got a better idea?

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Series One, Card #23!

Ah, the variations that I came up with before choosing this gag... but perhaps you can think of a funnier one?

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Series One, Card #22!

I also considered a gag about having a "pressing engagement," but liked this one better. I'll bet one of you has a better gag for this card!

Monday, June 21, 2010

Series One, Card #21!

I think this joke comes the closest to the old "Monster Laffs" style of humor, myself... have a better gag for this card?

Sunday, June 20, 2010

Series One, Card #20!

This is the first version of this gag I used... got a better idea?

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Series One, Card #19!

Another obvious gag... got a better one?

Friday, June 18, 2010

Series One, Card #18!

Got a better punch line than this one? Leave it in the comments!

Thursday, June 17, 2010

Series One, Card #17!

I'll be the first to admit, this joke is definitely not PC... I considered making the punch line "...the part that eats," but that didn't strike me as being as funny! What can you come up with?

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Series One, Card #16!

Yeah I went for an obvious joke here... can you do better?

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Series One, Card #15!

I had a few photos I was tempted to use this caption with... but this is the one I chose. Got a funnier line than this?

Monday, June 14, 2010

Series One, Card #14!

I must say, I love the idea that these monsters aren't intentionally doing the destruction they're doing... but that doesn't mean I won't change the joke if one of you has a better one!

Series One, Card #13!

I do love the joke I came up with for this -- I challenge you to be funnier!

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Series One, Card #12!

Not a favorite joke of mine... I'm hoping you've got a better one!

Friday, June 11, 2010

Series One, Card #11!

One of my favorite jokes... that doesn't mean you don't have a better one, though!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Series One, Card #10!

Yes, stealing jokes from Mae West... bet you can do better!

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Series One, Card #9!

This caption occurred to me immediately upon seeing this photo... have a better one?

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Series One, Card #8!

Probably one of my least-favorite jokes that I came up with... got a better one for me?

Monday, June 7, 2010

Series One, Card #7!

As much as I like this joke, do any of you have a better one?

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Series One, Card #6!

OK, I know at least one of you has a better gag than this one!

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Horror-Ble Humor Series One, Card #2!

That's my best joke for this card -- what's yours?

Horror-Ble Humor Series One, Card #1!

At last, here's Card #1 from my Horror-Ble Humor monster cards!

That's the funniest caption I could come up with -- if you've got a better one, put it in the comments!

Welcome to Horror-Ble Humor Monster Cards!

So, for those of you who came here thanks to the link on my Random Acts of Geekery blog, this is going to be rehash... but bear with me, okay?

Last October, as part of my participation in the multi-blog "Countdown to Halloween," I decided to post photos of monster cards -- at least, all the ones I could get decent photos of from eBay auctions. It turned out I had more in my files than I could use in one month, so I saved the rest for October 2010's Countdown... but you know what? I'm the kind of guy who isn't ever satisfied with doing the same thing year after year. The first year I was in the Countdown, I posted one monster-related photo on October 1, then 2 on October 3, and so forth all the way to 31 photos on Halloween itself, and each year, my participation has grown and grown. So I had to do something new and exciting for this year!

And the answer came to me in a flash: Design my own monster cards! I figured that if I went through all my photo files, I should have plenty of photos of a high enough resolution to have way more cards than I would need for one year (although that didn't quite turn out to be the case). And as I started going through my files, I started to think of what name I wanted to use for these cards. "Horror-Ble Humor" sounded great to me, so I chose that!

Of course, I also had to make sure that anyone who liked these cards would be able to print out a set for themselves, and I wanted to make them somewhat authentic, so I had to design a front and back side, and make sure they'd line up properly (assuming that one's printer is consistent with printing, which mine is most decidedly not!). And I knew that as creative as I am, I'm sure that my funny joke for each card wasn't necessarily going to be the funniest line anyone could think of...

So, I figured, why not make this an interactive process? I decided to create this new blog, and post each of the 72 cards I designed (well, the front sides, anyway), one each day, throughout June, July and part of August, and see if anyone out there was funnier than I am (and I'm sure that there are plenty of you who are!).

When I post the finished cards front and back here and on the Random Acts of Geekery, any card that I change the caption for because of a funnier line will have the author of the joke credited on the back of the card -- how's that for incentive?

So, without further ado, please, add your funny captions in the comments, just try to bear in mind the space limitations! And Fang You Very Much!
