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.

Wouldn't that mean that the contest is already over or in this case never began?

My first quality post was about the Pokedex. Awesome.

I did this one mostly for my own amusement. It's something a former coworker, obviously in user support, used to always say. Tends to go with any laptop phone call, too:

You might have something there, a LF that sends you an email so you can quickly deal w/ the emergency. get a patent (the US Patent Office may require a slightly more detailed drawing)

In its current incarnation, Gatorade doesn't assist alligators nearly as much as the name would imply.



Upon further consideration this isn't exactly on topic. I suppose I altered something to reflect what the name actually is, not what it should be. Oh well.

Awesome job with four bucks coffee, except there are t-shirts with the exact same thing on it (well, five bucks, but close enough)

Tell it girlfriend! ha ha I started ordering XL's so I can wear them over a long sleeve shirt. That makes me sound big but in real life I usually buy small or medium at the store.
