Instead of the jokes round on Monday 15th Feb, we decided to have a ‘who can draw a picture of Barack Obama riding a tiger the best’ competition. With the rise of cheating on iphones – this could be the future of Edinburgh pub quizzes!
Here’s some of the work that got handed in:
The first is a jolly, stoned-looking Obama:
This Obama was quite boyish and we liked the addition of foliage:
My personal favourite was this one which has Barack Obama looking like one of the Bash Street Kids, riding on some kind of nuclear-power Sabre-toothed tiger:
This tiger is pretty cool, it looks to me like a 1970s tiger, for some reason:
This next one was actually the winner, chosen as much for the concept as for the execution. See the PTO? that meants you turn over the bit of paper and the rear view of the same tiger (complete with arsehole) is shown. Smart stuff. I forgot to photograph the rear view – dumb stuff.
One or two entries decided that the best way to depict the fact that the President of The United States is a black man, given a biro, was to colour in Obama’s face as heavily as possible:
Same tactic, but more tigger:
The next one is the only instance in which the team were so proud of their work that they requested their original to be returned. Everyone else was happy to see their art go in the bin.
This actually included some half-decent drawing but Obama isn’t really riding the tiger here, more kind of stroking it, so not a winner:
And, there’s always one:
There were some others but they got lost in the wash.
This was the winning team on the drawing who, despite being called Quiz Team Aguilera, seemed to be pretty decent people:
