ExplodingSquidx2 kept drawing what Goons wanted, but eventually there were a lot more people requesting stuff then there were artists who actually did something with the results. Still, it seems a shame to let these characters go to waste, so here are some orphaned ExplodingSquidx2 creations; use them for your own fiendish devices!
Total Fat Guy: "Could you be so kind as to draw a 'hip-hop troll' for me?"
Johnny Aztec: "A badger ... FROM SPACE!"
Faxman: "I'd really like to see Professor Turtle. And if it's not too much to ask, a tree yelling at a cow."
Tweek: "A hunched-over, grizzled cigarette pack with four-day stubble, sitting, smoking a cigarette. You can tell he hates his life."
TheJoker138: "I'd like to see Party Time Alien, with a lampshade on his head cause he's just so damn wacky."
wyoming: "Party Time Tim Allen."
Command Ant: "I would like to see Che Guevara cosplaying as Harry Potter."
lushka16: "Can you do an emo pterodactyl?"
joyfulgirl129: "The little dude in my avatar (tarsier) doing something illegal!"
MooseyFate: "Can I have a man-sized guitar playing a small guitar-sized man (and both way happier than they should be about the situation)?"

He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
