The Blown Covers blog recalls the gag insert in Raw #8 which included an one page gags by Burns, Marischal, Panter, and the rest of the Raw gang. The punchlines were created by commitee however:

For RAW #8, Art and Françoise had a number of single panels and images they hadn’t yet published – “Because there were no punchlines,” they say. So, they put the images up on the wall, invited their friends over, and gave everyone post-it notes. People walked around sticking captions on the images. If you laughed at someone else’s caption, you put a check mark on the post-it. The winning captions and images were published in RAW Gagz – an insert in RAW #8.

The posts are all grouped around this one on the blog, although they don’t seem to be tagged. This one by Mark Beyer haunted us for years and years.
