Some ideas are too good not to swipe, so we're appropriating one from wooter ActorTom, first posted by him in a thread on the Everything But Woot forum. The idea is to use the power of visual expression to reveal the true nature of common objects, situations, ideas, or entities, like so:
Show us something altered to reflect what its name should actually be.
Confused? Just take a look at ActorTom's three examples at the link above. Lipsuction becomes hipposuction. Taco Bell is Taco Belch. And Immodium AD, in ActorTom's hands, turns into Commodium AD. Get it? If you've ever said anything like "BloodRayne? More like Dudrayne!", this one's for you.
Post your entry here by 11:59 PM CST on Sunday, January 13, 2007.
Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for
winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it
goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave
painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be
judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are
fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a
place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com.
We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use.
And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post
links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own
work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
