Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays, we lay out a challenge and offer sample responses. Enter in the comments section or on Twitter with the hashtag we’ve provided, and the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year’s subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner’s choice). Full rules are here.
COMPETITION NO. 57: “COMIC CON SPEECHES.” Please offer a line from a celebrity’s imagined speech to the fans at New York Comic Con next week. For example:
Rudy Giuliani: "With great power comes great responsibility."
Taylor Swift: "And please welcome to the stage … my good friend Stan Lee!"
Jerry Seinfeld: "Well, it is good cape weather."
Hillary Clinton: "Yeah, actually, I burned all my back issues. Sorry."
Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #comiconspeeches, or in the comments thread below, by October 7.
