Cartoonist Plays Bingo with Syndicated Cartoon Submissions

On December 21, 2006, a comic creator began using his syndicated submissions in order to play bingo. Last Thursday, Aaron Johnson, the aforementioned comic creator, sent his latest "What the Duck" strip to the Creators Syndicate, King Features Syndicate, the Tribune Media Services, United Media, Universal Press Syndicate and the Washington Post Writers Group. He must get the permission of these groups before he proceeds in creating his bingo game so that there will be no problems in the future with copyright violations, etc.

Johnson then created a bingo board, listing the 6 syndicates and the 6 possible responses, which are: "Love it," "Form letter," "Try again," "It's no 'Garfield,'" "Hate it," and "Kill yourself." Johnson could be waiting anywhere from days to weeks to even months for a syndicated response from these comic creators, so the bingo board that he has created will not be filled for a while. Aaron Johnson's "What the Duck" (at, the daily comic strip that tells about photographers and photography, is currently published on the web.
