Coffee Contest – WINNERS!
After much ado, I present to you the results of the Coffee Wins Shirts contest! First, a quick preamble:
This was an awesome contest to see, and the results are amazing. Thanks so much to all who entered, I think it was a great success. Before we talk winners, here are all the entries from my recently revived Flickr Account. If you can’t see the slideshow below, visit the set on Flickr here:
Winners below the cut!
DC People: Free Tickets to See OSS117
I got offered free tickets from the distribution company of OSS117: Lost in Rio, a company called Music Box Films. Do you want a pair of tickets to see it at E-Street Cinema? First some info about the movie, then how you can get the tickets.
Here’s the trailer:
If you haven’t heard of this series (this is the 2nd OSS117 movie, but you don’t have to have seen the first) it is everything Austin Powers should have been. It’s a straight parody of Connery-era Bond movies, if Connery were played by Peter Sellers playing a complete idiot. Having seen it, I can attest, it is a fun movie to go and see. There’s fantastic locales, great style, hilarious scenes and luchadores and nazis. Really a win-win.
If you really need convincing, the first one, OSS117: Cairo, Nest of Spies is on Netflix Instant. You can go watch it RIGHT NOW! In fact, you should either way as it’s amazing.
All you have to do is comment on here with an account that includes your email address, and we’re good to go. I’ll email all the info to the first person that responds!
Coffee Wins Shirts
Did you see Wednesday’s comic about latte art? Did it hit a little too close to home? Now’s your chance to win something for all that frivilous frothing time, that precious pulling, that precise pouring.
Here’s what you do:
- Look at the awesome “My Body is Just a Filter” Coffee Shirt you can win.
- Make some awesome art made with or about coffee (latte art, coffee grind sand art, coffee comics, whatever it takes.)
- Send a cool picture of it to me (systemcomic at gmail, with the subject “I WANT COFFEE”) by June 11th.
- Sit back and wait.
What’s at stake? The best one wins one of the new and awesome “My body is just a (coffee) filter” shirts (shown here):
2 runners-up will win 25% off any order from HilariAwesome.com, The System’s online store. Results will be announced on June 15th. I’m not letting the winners go as long as I did the last contest. No, we’re getting this shirt together! Some other details:
If you have already preordered this awesome shirt and win the contest, I’ll contact you and you can choose to get your money back for the one shirt, or just have 2 shirts (the one you paid for and the one you won). If you have already pre-ordered the shirt and are a runner-up in the contest, I’ll count that discount towards your already-placed order as best I can.
Don’t feel like you have to be a barista to qualify! You totally don’t! Any piece of art (photo, illustration, etc.) captured in an image will do! Need some inspiration? Check out all the coffee comics I’ve done over the last 2 years. I’m sure one will get you started.
Now go! Start arting! Spread the word! Other things!
Cupcake Sandwich Contest Winners!
Remember about, oh, a month and a bit ago, when I stumbled upon a little thing called the CUPCAKE SANDWICH? At the time I announced a rather fun contest that more than a few people opted to enter. Entries poured in. Roger Ebert was intrigued (and RTed this post). Even Hurley from LOST got in on the action. And then, silence.
Behind the scenes, it was a harsh battle. A truly difficult decision rife with conflict and dissention. But finally, I am proud to announce that MY MOTHER HAS JUDGED THE CUPCAKE SANDWICH CONTEST.
After the jump and without further ado, I present to you RossMom’s deliberations and the results of the Cupcake Sandwich Contest.

Cupcake Sandwich Contest Update: It’s too late!
It’s now totally too late to enter into the CUPCAKE SANDWICH contest. A whopping TWELVE amazing and totally valid entries have crossed the inbox! While we are figuring out how to best tally the votes (some special ideas have been planned) here are a few errata that have come up on the topic of cupcakes and sandwiches that can hold you over as we produce some final judgments:
First up is Systemic Rachel “ROFLcon” Mercer’s link to the Cupcake Hamburger Sandwich. It looks amazing and if she’d sent me some of these little goodies, I’d be hers forever she totally would’ve been in the running for the grand prize. LINK »
Next comes a link from Systemic Kate, an article on Jezebel titled Bakery Backlash: It’s A Cupcake, Not A Puppy. Clearly some people haven’t tried THE SANDWICH yet. LINK »
Finally, via Systemic Cledwyn via Soon-to-be-Systemic Andrew Sullivan (once SOMEONE can find me his address and I mail him a BEARDS shirt) comes a blog called Dudes with Beards Eating Cupcakes. Combines my love for the CUPCAKE SANDWICH with my love of BEARDS. LINK »

The System 351: The Cupcake Sandwich
This is my gift to the world. A way of fully indulging in the joys of the cupcake without any of the drawbacks. A way that balances every bite with frosting, cake, and the joy of knowing you have truly proven yourself to be an enlightened and practical individual. I know what you’re thinking, there must be some drawbacks! Here are some common questions about THE CUPCAKE SANDWICH:
Won’t the frosting get everywhere?
While some frosting does leak out the sides at times, this is a perfect opportunity to have a bit of frosting by itself without having to have globs of it all at once. Don’t consider this a drawback, but an opportunity.
How is this any shorter than it was before? Won’t getting it in your mouth still be a problem? And your math sucks, cupcakes are not 2x the height of my mouth.
First of all, you are probably the same detractors that found flaws in the Full Gadget Ratio. Nertz to you. Second, no this will not be a problem. The cakey bottom, once placed on top, creates a “safe zone” for your hands with which you can compress the size of the cupcake at will, without getting your hands covered in frosting. As for the height of the cupcake vs mouth, it may not be perfect but sometimes the best things in life aren’t.
How have I never thought of this before?
This is why I’m an internet humorist and you’re a reader. We all have our roles to play.
UPDATE: Systemic Brownpau sends word that others have come up with the same idea…
Time for a contest, Systemics!
