The game is on: Between today and the end of the year, will “Death” comics outnumber “Russian nesting doll,” “Gesundheit!” and “clown cars” combined?
Please send me all the Deaths, Russian nesting dolls, gesundheits and clown cars you find. If they’re also CIDUs, LOLs or whatever, all the better — but even if they don’t fall into any special category, please send them anyway, since we’re conducting a super-scientific study here.
This might turn out to be quite a terrible idea. Probably will, in fact. And I’m not really sure how I’m going to display the running results. But let’s see how it goes.
I guess we might as well use the normal address. Please use Death, Russian nesting dolls, gesundheit or clown cars in the subject line, and make a notation if you’re also submitting it for a CIDU or other tag.
Of course, I might add the LOL to a lot of the Russian nesting doll and clown car comics, because I always seem to find those funny. I’m easy that way.
A final note: Mythtickle comics are excluded, since Death is a regular character there.
“. . . you find.”
I assume CURRENTLY POSTED on a site, NOT just googling it/them . . .
No piñata or Mr. Potatohead, huh? Darn . . .
What about reruns?
Are we takin’ bets here? And how long is this going to run – 1 February 2021?
Since we can’t always tell when something a rerun, we hould probably just count anything published (or republished) between February 1 and the end of the year.
I know some comic strip artists lurk here. That could, possibly, influence the results.
Okay remind me what “Gesundheit” comics are. Or is it just a character saying it in a strip?

Or a snowman whose carrot nose just impaled another snowman, and the second snowman says “gesundheit.”
Or two leopards, one unspotted with spots all over the ground around him, and the other with normal spots saying “gesundheit.”
