John Cook from Sev.com.au just emailed me with news on his latest cartoon punchline contest: I’ve published a new Lord of the Rings cartoon punchline contest featuring a caricature of Saruman in his amazing technicolor coat (which appears in the book though unfortunately doesn’t make it into the movie). Readers can submit Gandalf’s response and the funniest punchline will be chosen by readers in a week’s time. You can read the many hilarious punchlines already submitted or submit your own punchlines at: https://www.sev.com.au/toonzone/scifitvcomp.asp</A.
