Reader Photoshop Contest: USF Wants Your Football Ticket Designs

What could possibly go wrong here?

Something tells me USF did not exactly think this idea through. This is not an April Fool's joke, this is really happening.

The USF Football team is looking for inspired artists to help create the 2013 Football Season Tickets. With seven home games, the Bulls will select one winner for each game, and the winnings designs will be the face of each of the tickets.

The deadline for submitting artwork is April 7th at 5:00 pm. After that, the best of the best will move on to a vote that will take place on the USF Athletics Facebook page. From the Facebook vote, the top seven designs will be officially announced as the winners at the USF Spring Football game on Saturday April 13th.

This would have been a good idea two years ago, when USF was coming off a positive season, their conference was still intact, and things were generally looking up. Now... not so much. A contest like this is wide open for cynicism and snark. Which is where you all come in!

We'd like to see your sure-to-be-rejected ticket submissions. Use Photoshop, use Microsoft Paint, use hilarious animated GIFs, or use little cut-up letters out of magazines pasted together to look like a ransom note... whatever media you want to use. The only rule is that the image you make has to be the same size (2.5" tall x 1.75" wide) that USF is asking for submissions to their contest. Then post them in the comments.

Here's an idea of what we're looking for:

Do your worst, everyone. Most recs wins... I don't know, something I guess.
