- If I’ve missed anyone who entered or got your name wrong let me know. I can’t accept further entries now I’m afraid. Click here if you can’t remember what name you used!
- A huge vote of thanks needs to go to my wife who did
a lot of all of the hard work of putting this list together.
- How it was done: The countries were numbered randomly, and then the people were numbered randomly, and the two lists were brought together. In the end a container was not used.
- This includes both entries on both the web page and Facebook group.
- There were some commenters who may just have been larking around and didn’t want to be entered. I’m afraid you have been.
- The countries have been listed here in order of FIFA ranking – I know, all terribly advanced. Not my doing. If your country is near the top of the list you might have a slightly better chance than if it’s at the bottom.
- Further announcements on the progress of the CartoonChurch office sweepstake will be made on Twitter using the hashtag #cartoonchurchsweepstake – please feel free to join in with in-depth punditry etc.

I’ve decided, for my own idle amusement, to run a World Cup sweepstake here in my office in the heart of Industrial Basildon. Unfortunately, as I am the only one who works here it has the potential to be less than enthralling. As things stand I will have an approximate 100% chance of winning, which does remove a certain element of excitement. I have therefore decided to open the sweepstake up to friends and readers of this blog.
In order to make my sweepstake legal it is free to enter (See Is your office World Cup sweepstake legal?). This might mean it is not technically a sweepstake, I’m not sure.
All you have to do to enter is write a comment in the comment section below. To make it more interesting please indicate your department (‘Bob from accounts’, Helen from janitorial services’ etc).
Countries will be allocated randomly by picking names out of a container of some sort (details of container to be decided). If we get more than
24 32 entrants there will need to be some doubling up, so you’ll have to share your country with someone else. I will close entries at the end of Monday.
The prize will be a small selection of cartoon goodies of my choosing. I will send them anywhere in the world. On the unlikely offchance I get hundreds of entries I reserve the right to make the prize fairly… small. I also reserve the right to add additional rules on my merest whim.
Pundits can discuss the progress of the CartoonChurch office sweepstake on Twitter using the hashtag #cartoonchurchsweepstake

I’m no football pundit, so I won’t bore you with punditry. If any UK national newspapers do not have some variant of this cartoon tomorrow I will be very surprised. In the meantime feel free to add it to your own football punditry blog posts. Copy and paste the code below if that makes things easier.

For people surfing in, you can find all of my free cartoons for bloggers on my We Blog Cartoons site. All my football-related cartoons from the last few weeks are here. They mostly seem to involve flags on cars come to think of it.

The results of my recent football poll:
Will you be watching the football?
* Oh yes! I’ll be watching as much as I can: 35% (37)
* I plan to watch the matches my country is playing, but that is it: 8% (9)
* I might watch the odd match. Then again I might not: 28% (30)
* Our country is not in it so it is of no interest: 6% (6)
* Football? Never heard of it: 23% (25)
Total Votes : 107
It seems that the largest single group of readers on my blog are football fanatics. With this in mind I am going to make a renewed effort to give you what you want.

Three cartoons for CartoonChurch.com subscribers are on their way for the next three days.
Yes, flags. Again. This one is now available here for republication in church publications. The high-resolution version is on the site, but I ask that you buy a licence using my ‘honesty box’ system if you choose to reprint it in this week’s church notice sheet or elsewhere.
And… you can put it on your blog for free with this code:

I’d like to point out that I’m not anti-World Cup. I’ll probably watch a match or two. But some of the rubbish one can buy does cause me to raise my quite literal eyebrows.

Live stream the World Cup on your blog
This cartoon is available on We Blog Cartoons. You can freely republish it on your blog.
This cartoon was inspired by the fact that FIFA (or their representatives) have been sending out threatening letters to bloggers telling them that they are monitoring their sites for unlawful activities and that they better not even think of live-streaming the world cup games. Bear in mind that the sites receiving the letters are largely sites with no interest in football whatsoever. (Thanks to Darren for the tip-off.)
If you’d like more people to monitor your site for activities of any kind then feel free to place this cartoon on your blog.
