To preserve the bewildering, obscure conundrum of the enigmatic Bag O' Crap (and to discourage bored, obnoxious creeps from blathering on ceaselessly about how a given Woot is less desirable than a B.O.C.), we use a word filter in the forums to change that phrase to a different B.O.C. acronym. Like the pliant sheep - er, good sports that you are, many of y'all have played along, coining your own substitutes. Now comes the one moment in your life when that trivial skill could actually translate into buckets of cash. (Well, one small bucket of cash, maybe.) Behold our challenge:
Come up with an alternate B.O.C. acronym, and depict it in a visual image.
Should you be our champion, you'll win more than bills or checks - we'll actually use the top three entries as new replacement acronyms in our forums. These bright, original concepts will bring overdue change to our word filter and bestow overwhelming celebrity on the winners. Be original, 'choppers!
