Were you expecting any part of his submission to be realistic? :lol:



Uh, that's what makes it so terribly awful. :?

No, no , no, there's no bandwagon! I'm just helping out the many wooters that are considering their final decisions, silly.

Did you see a list of 5? Were there any captions? My post is not one that lists my 5 favorites- it's simply self promotion- therefore, there are no rules for me to follow!

Looks like everyone is jumping on the no-read bandwagon.


You reposted the whole image, which is what they do not want you to do.

thanks for the praise motown... I just wanted to let you know that my Star Wars "Cleaning Up Rebel Scum" pic on page 8 took me FOREVER to do. But, if either of my entries wins I'll be very happy.

No problemo, while clearly a good effort with the Rebel Scum (somehow I missed mentioning it when going through things yesterday) I liked the satire of the SnuggleBunny redo better.

It doesn't matter, the point of the request was so that people would NOT repost images.
Your argument just uses a weak loophole to get around that request.

Roger Wilco and the Time Swiffers - pg 15 - Because I'd be an idiot not to vote for myself, and I think I did a pretty flawless job, while paying homage to a great VGA classic!
http://www.megdesk.com/swiffquest.jpg

Moses Swiffers the Red Sea by bartendermagic.com - pg 6 - Clever and well executed. Bravo!
http://www.bartendermagic.com/images/woot5b.jpg

The First Mt.Rushmore by MilesMingusMonk - pg 3 - Simple, but effective. And kind of pretty. I don't think I'd mind having a graffiti Rushmore print on my wall!
http://cigarpasshosting.homestead.com/RushmoreTagged.jpg

Mine Swiffering by taipan - pg 6 - Nice job integrating the black & white Swiffer and kind of amusing. The shadow's seems a little funny-shaped, though.
http://img67.exs.cx/img67/4512/mineswiffer6wl.jpg

Star Wars: Clean Wars by JRWootaholic - pg 5 - It made me laugh! Nice job (And lucky for you, all the "clean" letters were in the original title)!

Page 5 Clean wars was great, by JRWootaholic http://www.journeyoflife.org/Main/images/CleanWars03JPG.JPG

There are two separate issues there. shiftdelete did an update on last week's winner by SnuggleBunny--that was the satire I'm referring to.

sorry for my late answer but i underlie the mez-timezone here in germany and had been at work. the source of the image is this one:

its some guerilla-marketing of a little advertisement-agency: the text is german in english it should be something like:"Vast agency with a enormous worldwide network is searching prosperous customers close-by that dont have any clue from the internet, marketing or similar and that want to "throw there money with both hands into our pockets".

i did some colour-correctives, stretched and crushed the poster.. well, you saw it :)

Excellent work saucer! Did you only use the one source photo? If I had seen that earlier I would have put that in my top five. It’s probably too late for the real judges to take into consideration.

I agree with everyone elses opinions about who should win but I think my 911 one should get an abtilt for stirring up alot of shit. Plus my skillz are lame so it should get a worst nomination.

It's already been done, a similar entry won the worst entry on the first contest (peepaul if I remember). You tried too hard to make it look bad = no ab-tilt in my book.

1. Pg 21, Bush dropping iraq into a barrel of Terror Haven.
2. pg 13, micheal moore pic
3. Page 6, cleaning MJ into Tyra


I am posting number 1 even though it's my own. That thing took a lot of work and is a combination of a least a minimum of 5 pics for each box. The joke only works if you have been staying up on the news of how Iraq is becoming a terrorist haven and terrorist cells.

You really have great ideas! Do you ever sleep?



Thanks Grace & Wellness, I try to sleep but the silly ideas just keep coming to my head. Just kidding. I don't sleep much more than 4 to 6 hours a night and I had to be around the house all weekend. Unfortunately, that means that I have subjected all of you to so many postings. I'll be back out on the town next weekend so you folks won't have to put up with me.....as much.

So nobody liked my entry on page 10? It the one with Bravewoman in space, cleaning up a mess of stars.
I guess I'll have to try and think of something more funny/interesting next time, even though this one utilized Photoshop very well. I did a lot of work on that, too. Some of the ones who got the most "nominations" are funny, but had very little work done to them.

I like the one with the Zamboni, also on page 10.

I don't remember what page, but there was one with an "Industrial Dirt Devil Sweeper Vac truck."

Gotta love the moses one.

Hm... gotta pick one more....
I guess I'll go with the "retro swiffer." It's somewhere near the first pages.

The pictures have been reviewed, ballots have been stuffed, and judges have been bribed. It's time to announce the Swiffer Vac Contest Winners:

Third place, winner of $20
[size=18:40988bcf4c]bartendermagic.com with The Swiffering of the Red Sea[/size:40988bcf4c]

Apparently, God works in very mysterious ways.

Second place, winner of $50
[size=18:40988bcf4c]taipan with Mine Swiffering[/size:40988bcf4c]

A false move and there's going to be quite a big mess to clean up.

First place, winner of $100
[size=24:40988bcf4c]Slayd with Swiffering Out The Trash[/size:40988bcf4c]
Original:

Modified:

"One thing's for sure. We're all going to be a lot cleaner!"

Last place, winner of an Ab-Tilt
ls3mach with Swiffering the Yard

It's starting to seem that people work harder to win the Worst award than to win the Best. I guess those Ab-Tilts are pretty cool.

All right, thanks for the entries folks. Congratulations to the winners, and I hope the rest of you had fun. See you again next weekend.

I agree with the star wars, that was my fav. The mine sweeping in my opinion is weak and the swiffer looks really fat. The moses was good and funny, and may as well deserve to be in the top 3. I get nixed again in these contests. No love for cleaning up the oval office or stop or my mom will shoot? whats up with that????

Yeah, I know the video doesn't technically fall within the scope of this contest (and I don't expect to win based on the video), but I ran across the original commercial and I just had to do it. :D Unfortunately, I only had time to finish the first half of the video because since I don't have a copy of After Effects, I'm actually using Photoshop to do it frame by frame. :P


WOW! Cool movie. I wish I knew how to do that.


Thanks :D

I just took a peek at your website. Very cool! Definitely bookmarking it :)
