I have to say, if I was judging these, I'd disqualify the ones that don't match up to the number and placement of the word balloons. Chances are nobody else cares, though...
Oh, I've certainly had the thought somewhere in my mind, in all the contests I've entered. As you can probably see, though, I usually choose to ignore the thought. Although sometimes I don't. My winning entry for the last contest was one in which I did try to match the bubbles...

If it were an official rule, it's one I'd have no problem with, but as it is, I personally tend to just go with whatever strikes me, regardless of matching speech to bubbles. Sloppy, yes, but there you are. My first joke in one of these contests was about throwing faeces around. I think all standards went out the window there and then .
