Okay, we have a number of prizes that we can give out. Some are going to be good and some are going to be only so-so. The contest will determine who gets prizes and in what order these prizes are given out...but not what the prize is.

The person who gets the last place (which may be as many as 7 people!) gets to choose from the list. Then #6 can either take that gift or choose a new unknown item from the list. And so on until all gifts have been seen. It's going to be brutal and bloody and fun!

I don't know what the contest is going to be quite yet as I don't know precisely how many prizes I have to give. The gift exchange will be done using the chat client so that everyone can see what's going on. The exchange will probably take a bit of time so we'll have to schedule it.

Okay, so here's what we're going to do.

  • Starting today and continuing through Friday I will be giving a stream of letters and a category.
  • Participants will take these letters and make a saying out of them, preferably humorous.
  • Example: "FAMVT - The world will end when..." Someone could put "Frisky Argentinian Moose Develop Thumbs".
  • Everyone putting in an entry gets 1 point.
  • 1 entry per person. If someone enters more than 1 then only the first entry will be considered.
  • If someone likes your entry you get an additional point. 2 points for Love or Funny.
  • NO points will be taken away for negative votes.
  • At the end of the week I'll tally them up and the top 7 people get in for a prize.
Please note that the prizes are broken down as follows: 1 PS3 game, 1 PC game from a web site and 5 Steam games.
Monday's Acronym:
DKCORS
Category - What happened last weekend.
And.....GO!

Well now I feel bad, since mine wasn't very good anyway. It does appear to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, however.

Dark Knight Caught: Onomatopeia, Riddler, Scarecrow

Don't know if I lost points because BErt beat me to the Dark Knight connection though.

What happened last weekend?

Monday's headline:


Deity Knocked: Challenge Offends Religious Stalwarts

In a stunning move christian leaders worldwide rejected Jesus Christ. His descent in a glowing pillar of fire surrounded by angels was witnessed by every person on this planet, and peace and prosperity have reigned since his arrival just two weeks after Easter. However, christian leaders maintain that he is no longer needed. Many congregations are excommunicating individuals that profess a belief in his second coming. "We still believe in him, of course, but he's already given us the word, and now that he's 'clarifying' doctrine we've been teaching for centuries it's got our congregation in an uproar. We don't need him, right now, and wish he just stayed in heaven until the judgement bar when we'll need forgiveness. His command to 'come, follow me - again' is just an insult to us - what does he think we've been doing all these years?"

This is not the first time a deity has been rejected by his or her followers, and should the world survive the elements melting with a fervent heat at the end of his reign, it will not be the last time.
