On a day that seems like 100 hours ago, but was much, much longer ago than that, in the midst of the celebrity death-watch to beat all celebrity death watches, we aked you to Show us what a recently deceased celebrity (or group of celebrities) is doing in the afterlife. Fortunately, they quit dropping like flies- you know how an aged fly can be just flying along, trying to get into your rice pudding, and then he suddenly just falls over dead? Only he isn't really dead, 'cause his wings just won't carry him any more, so he sort of rotates around on his back, as he slowly di- OK, never mind. Regardless, the seers among you took the time to show us what's happining on the other side- and heeeeeere's the list!

First Place - $100
mwiseman - Switcheroo

Michael's just sittin' at the pearly gates, waiting on Diana Ross.


Second Place - $50
fyrefall - Travalina

"OK, Fred, now do the Sham-wow guy!"


Third Place - $20
edw6buffalo - Cloud Clean & Halo Glo

Now, if he had something to clean up souls- THAT'S a market!


Honorable Mentions:

toby8915 - Wyeth

Could anyone possibly have changed the feel of this painting any more with such a small alteration?


stevepom5460 - Farrah & Ed
An actual tasteful entry?(is this woot?) We'd have liked to see one where Johnny was sitting in the host's chair, and Ed was sitting in the sidekick chair- that would have been heaven for Ed.


tim8604 - Farrah Angel
In six months, this will totally be a tattoo!


DarthJay - Ghost Rider of Pop
A metaphor for his iron fist of control over the Beatles royalties.


taipan - McNair
If life were a football game, someone would have a flagrant foul for sure, and been suspended a couple of games.


Monkey Prize
ActorTom - Grasshopper

Tom shows us yet again why he's the reigning Master of Monkeys- until next week, when mwiseman comes back to earth.

Money winners, please email your Paypal info to jtoon@woot.com. Monkey Prize winner, please email your shipping address to jtoon@woot.com. All of you monkey prize winners, our best suggestion is to start a DOS attack on Jason Toon and Dave Bug @ woot.com. These are the guys who are holding the monkeys hostage, not us- we're just pickin' winners and grinnin' at our wit! Honorable Mentioneers may use coupon code HONMEN-FS for free shipping on a future order. snerk. We truly wish it would work, we really do. Until next time remember: Death is just a part of life. Without it we would each have about 1 foot of living space on an earth crammed with Dinosaurs and Trilobites- hey, now that's a good name for a rock band!

I knew that D.C. was a monkey chop -- but you've got the wrong picture there.

Congrats to all the real winners!!!

Oh well, thanks for the HM, and congrats to the winners!

My guess is that they knew that...thus they said what they said.

Edzacly.

I think heaven for Ed would truly be Johnny hosting, and Ed being sidekick.

I really liked this contest. It reminds me of how, 13 months ago, I got reamed a new orifice by a couple of the regulars for poking fun at Tim Russert "too soon" after his death. I wonder what they thought of this contest...........

They still haven't fixed the link to the grasshopper chop. So for those who don't remember how really terrible it was, here it is again....

*BUMP*

Thought it would be a fun change to see a "Winners' Gallery..." topic at the top of the list.

(hint, hint)

To be honest Joe and I were both so busy last week that we slacked off on the contests for a little while there, but now we're waiting on Jason to post 3 winners galleries. He must be out this week so hopefully they will go up early next week. I apologize for the delay!
