Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner. The competition this year
was even fiercer than last. Double the amount of entries meant some
hopefuls resorted to promoting their photo with full-page spreads
in PC Magazine.
Our judges, sequestered in the deepest bowels of the geekdom, were
immune to such pandering, and used the most precise scientific methods
(darts, flipping coins, random number generators) to come to their
final decisions. Last year I said that "...photos ranged from
the raunchy to the romantic, from the clever to the uncomfortably
arousing." Those comments apply to this year as well.
Once again, I've kept the captions our contestants provided, and
added some of the judges' commentary as well. Thanks to all who sent
in entries. Below you'll find images that may disturb you, or maybe
just squirt coffee out of your nose. Enjoy!
