Insanity gets sort of romanticized as the ultimate creative force in movies and television today, but there's more than a slight difference between the savant with poor manners and the guy talking to his deity of choice via his Alphabits. So for this derby show us madness: the voices in someone's head, the swirl of hallucinated hecklers following your every move, or...something else. Yeah, you could draw a lonely-looking guy in a straight-jacket, but we'd rather see you conceptualize actual madness. That's high-brow, right? Finally, no one will have any reason to complain in the comments! Of course, even the criminally insane have their limits, and that means:

No Video Game references.
No bunnies.

No text.

And in case you're inspired by the March variety, keep in mind our omnipresent rule about no copyrighted images.

If drakxxx doesn't take first place in this derby, something is truly wrong with the world.

Yes, mental illness certainly is stigmatized in the media.

I really hope this isn't a derby of insensitivity towards people with real illnesses that already have a very hard time coping with society's views and their stigma.

Sorry, just worried :/

Vote!

Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk, but Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now, think about that. That does not make sense! Why would a Wookiee - an eight foot tall Wookiee - want to live on Endor with a bunch of two foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense!

What does that have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense!

None of this makes sense.

If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit!

The defense rests.

No, the Halloween derby is always christmas come early for Drakxxx and his fans. And what did we get last year? He just *barely* beat out Seki's epic fail ITS MAI PUMPKIN! entry for 3rd place. meh!

Madness is awesome though, can't wait to see what Drak, Edgar, and Boots come up with! :-D

That's a good point. But hopefully people will keep it tasteful. I'm studying psychology so I realize that people can be really insensitive towards mental illnesses. But I'm still excited for this derby, I think we might have a lot of great entries. I'm just hoping that people keep it tasteful.

I'd really like to see shirts for this theme that aren't dark and gritty.

what immediately pops to mind is a black shirt, white doorway with a black silhouette of a guy, round solid white eyes and grin, gripping a big butcher knife.

too cliche?

EDIT: alternately, a bunch of neurons with eyes for nuclei.

This is the first thing that popped into my head, song lyrics:

And You’re not mad at me
No You’re not mad at me,
You’re madly in love
with me,
You love me madly, madly. madly

You must be mad - sorry, it was there.

There were some entries in the past that were clearly not tasteful; that's why they pay Joel to reject them.

He could re-enter "Awesomer" and it would still be within the theme. It was a sad day when that one fell out of the fog ...
