Drawing Contest – Seals

My daughter loves seals so she asked me to ask you lot to draw seals if I was having a drawing contest. I did this a few times. Here are some of my favourite

The tusks make it a walrus, but its a good drawing.
Pop techno seal
The Kiss From A Rose joke
The only entry with a pun AND a skateboard
Looks like a ghost. Quality.
Like the kind of seal painting a caveperson would make (if they had never seen a seal and had no talent at all.)
Use of Colour!
Royal seal
Nice attitude and nice bucket of fish.
So cute
Professional Validation
The Kiss From a Rose joke (agian)
He died for us.

From Fez-wearing trickster, to actual Jesus, seals have got it all.

The Queen, Doing Something Bad



The Queen is the longest reigning monarch. That was established last month and I even had a drawing contest that was kind of a tribute.

This drawing contest happened in the same week but had a different theme. The idea is that the coverage of the Queen is officially that she is brilliant. But let’s face it, none of us is perfect. Surely the Queen must have done SOMETHING bad in her three hundred years of captivity?

Draw that happening.

1. Internet Piracy

The Queen here is using piratebay to circumvent paying for her movie fix. Bad Queen (with a massive cock and balls and a lizard tongue).

2. E4 to B7

3. Child Abuse

4. Still Bad in 2015

5. Fast Food Murder

6. Humping Scotland Right Up The Stranraer

8. Paris

9. Actual Murder

This Is How We Feel About The Queen

Last week Britain was temporarily interested in the monarchy as #longestreign became a Twitter hashtag and Elizabeth celebrated coming out from the correct fanny and then having an appropriate vacancy open up through abdication and death, meaning that she has become the de facto head of a particular country of about 60 million people for longer than anyone else has been de facto head of that particular country. Hoo fucking rah.

Anyway, to “celebrate” I asked teams to make a portrait of the Queen. Here are some of the results:

QUEEN PORTRAIT B SHARPSI liked this a lot. It looks exactly like Mutha Bacon out of Biffa Bacon out of Viz.

QUEEN PORTRAIT BEARDY MANI kind of ignored this at the time but now I’m thinking it should have won. It’s like the Elephant Man has been flattened by a milk float. It would make a great stamp.


QUEEN PORTRAIT JACKIE CHANThis was one of the “proper drawing” efforts. Aye not bad.


QUEEN PORTRAIT MATT THE CATA dark image from a dark mind

QUEEN PORTRAIT THREE SISTERSAnother “proper drawing” effort but this one has more charm, I would say.




QUEEN PORTRIATShocking deathbed scene lays waste to any meaning Prince Charles may have enjoyed during his life.


QUEEN TEAM CLAIREThis came from a foreign team. I guess this is how they see her abroad… kind of like a lady version of Harold Bishop.

Celebrity Smoker Drawing Contest

One day I found 10 Lambert and Butler on the bus, all wrapped up in the cellophane and everything.

I don’t smoke these days, so I set a fag-contest challenge at Reverie the other night.

To win the snouts, you had to draw a celebrity having a fag. The prize would go to the one that I could guess but was least obvious. Here are the entries. See if you can guess who they are. Answers at bottom.

1. This one was too obvious to win, but I like it:

2. The next was just over the line: I couldn’t work out who it was

3. Another pretty obvious one:

4. I thought this was Jean Claude van Damme but that’s incorrect apparently and that’s why this one didn’t win:

5. A fairly obvious one for anybody Scottish:

6. This one is a belter, the artist has really captured the subject’s personalities’:

7. Another obvious one, but it was never going to win because they’ve made the most intelligent man in the world look like David Vine:

8. The last one is the winner: everyone’s favourite pop star. Not too obvious but superb bonus spacehopper. Artist Toby won the 10 x Lambert & Butler and he’s probably smoked the lot by now:


  1. The Queen
  2. Oprah Winfrey
  3. Jesus
  4. Gordon Ramsay
  5. Craig David
  6. Jedward
  7. Stephen Hawking
  8. Craig Mutha Fuckin David, Y’All

If you liked those, you’ll love the Craig David drawing contest from last October

Lab-Con Coalition Drawing Contest

Following the success of our last drawing contest, it was becoming high time we had another.

So, the challenge at the Newsroom quiz on Thursday was for teams to draw a picture of EITHER David Cameron riding a tiger OR Nick Clegg being sucked off by a peacock.

Here are the results, starting with the one that was “utter shit” according to the judges (three quite-pissed birds sitting nearby.)

"I like the cock."

The next showed a lot of promise and skill – particularly the scary eyes of the tiger and the top class David Cameron = Penis joke!

No one really knows how to draw Nick Clegg cos he’s so anonymous. Although, at least if he’s in profile you can see his tremendous cock!

The next was by a team called MIASMA COALITION and they seemed to have captured Clegg’s square-faced anonymity quite nicely:

The judges really hated the next one. They said it “looks like a pubic wig”

The next mob drew David Cameron being a twat. Fine concept and a nice design but the judges were having none of it.

The ultimate winner was this effort from INSERT FUNNY TEAM NAME which uses the same Cameron = Cock joke as above, but in nicer colours, and more lurid detail.

Newsroom Quiz Winners – No Jackpot

American-Scottish team INSERT FUNNY TEAM NAME HERE started the quiz disastrously but came back strong and were soon dominating the situation.

In the end they won by 10 points. Hoopla!

winners at edinburgh pub quiz dr paulAlso – they collected a WINNING scratchcard and so took a £1 for that. However, they weren’t so lucky with the real cash. After all teams had failed to come to terms with the challenge, our winners got a straight shot at the cash with the following Riddle of The Beast:

Who is Phil Collins’s favourite serial killer or killers?

A. Yorkshire Ripper

B. Jack The Ripper

C. The Moors Murderers

D. Bible John

They got it wrong so we’re playing for £30 next week. Would you have known?

Meanwhile, the highlight of the quiz was quite possibly the drawing contest in which teams were invited to draw a picture of EITHER David Cameron riding a tiger OR Nick Clegg being orally pleasured by a peacock.

Drawing Contest – Dinosaur With A Job

Monday at the Reverie saw another drawing contest instead of the old jokes round.

This time the challenge was to draw a dinosaur with a job.

Here’s what we got:

This nearly won. It’s a brontosaurus working in a pub, serving a very drunk T-Rex and was handed in by QUIZ TEAM AGUILERA

This was by PEDRO ALANIA and I thought it was pretty good – a cleaner dinosaur. Another close contender.

dinosaurthis was the dserved winner, excellent use of colour and I particularly like how the children are plainly terrified by their very protector. A huge and deadly T Rex is a great choice to be a lollipop lady. Nice hiring, the council.

This one is paeleontologist dinosaur. Ironic as fuck. Not a winner.

The team that won had this as back up. It could have won on its own.

This was the entry from Easy Lionel. Not bad but maybe not enough bling.

And I liked this but the judge (Mark) was having none of it.

Sorry to some of the others – I managed to lose the kissogram one and the builder one and maybe a few  others but take it easy, eh? It’s just the quiz!
