this very November 2003:
Bob the Angry Flower:
The Ultimate Book of Perfect Energy!
Well, I like that title, so I'm using it. That title suggestion came
late in the day from Owen Magee, so he wins First Prize,
which is all three books plus the fourth one when it comes out this November,
plus maybe something else, if I can imagine it. Congrats, Owen. I think
this will be a kick-ass book.
Second Prize goes to Ben Brockert, who sent in "Bob
the Angry Flower: The Ultimate Book of Perfect Angry", which didn't
quite do it, but it's so close, I gotta give him credit.
Third place goes to Mike Barthel, who submitted "Bob
the Angry Flower: Songs About Monkeys." It's catchy, and I liked the
sound of it, but eventually I decided monkeys are just too played out in
cartoons these days, what with the Powerpuff Girls Movie and Frank Cho
and James Kochalka's Monkey and Robot. Still, good suggestion, and I seriously
considered it for a while.
And while I'm feeling generous, here's a clutch of Honorable Mentions:
"Bob the Angry Flower IV: The Voyage Home," from Ben Cordes.
I don't know, it just made me chuckle.
"Why Not Bob the Angry Flower?", from The T. This is the slogan
from my stickers, and I gave this one some consideration before tossing
it aside like dirt.
"Bob the Angry Flower 4: Buy Books", from Jeremy Williams, also
had a certain appeal, since I certainly want people to buy books.
That's it for the prizes, but this page is only beginning. Below are
listed, in no tremendous order, all the suggestions I received. Marvel
at the retarded ones, chuckle at the good ones, fume that your suggestion
wasn't picked, and then get out.
