In these polarized times of political division and partisan rancor, the responsible thing to do would be to reaffirm our commonality as Americans, regardless of party, ideology, or animal mascot. But where's the money in that? We'd rather take advantage of the fragmented polity for our personal gain. Ain't that America? Your challenge this week:
Show us two different versions of a past or current Woot product, modified to appeal to the members of America's two largest political parties.
We're talking Democrats and Republicans, of course. If you've got a really good Green or Libertarian or Reform or Socialist Party joke, you can throw that in, too - as long as the big two are covered.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM CST on Monday, September 1, 2008.
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.
