Okay I'm new here, for what reason is the "monkey prize" awarded?

Entries lacking skill, completely off theme, yet visually or conceptually disturbing enough to make you go "wutdafuh?"

Actually, in some contests the monkey is awarded for an entry with skill, sometimes a great deal of it, but just narrowly (or completely) missing the contest theme. However, it usually goes to a member that thinks he/she has created a decent and quality entry, only to find that we have been secretly hiding our ridicule until the woot judges expose their weaknesses for all to see.

it's an honor. sometimes.

Seen that before!


Never claimed it WAS my image! Just thought it was a funny and relevant pic. Moreso, it should've been apparent that it wasn't an actual contest entry, considering that there was absolutely nothing there that had been edited with PhotoShop, Paint etc. Amazing what one can find with Google.

At any rate, the original pic has been modified to better fit the spirit of the contest.

Bucket of Corona

A real product, a cheaply made plastic bucket to hold the Corona. Why is it empty? Corona is always gone after the first 2 minutes. Congrats to the server guy/girl as this left coast guy was able to get his 2nd Bucket of Corona after 6 tries.

Which is exactly where it was found and was the URL that was displayed when viewing the image properties in a web browser - further proof that the image was being posted as merely a relevant amusement and not an actual contest entry.

At any rate, the original pic has been modified to better fit the spirit of the contest.
