This month, the prize will go for the best answer to the question, What’s wrong with this picture?
We’d hoped that the CFR caption contest would work like a kind of inkblot test for our fans, and if it did… well, we’re not sure whether to be exhilarated or terrified. There were identifiable tribes among the contestants:
1) Literalists. This krewe was bound and determined to come up with something that would spell out “CFR”. So, for example, we got “Communicating for Righteousness”.
2) Panglossians. All regulations are for the best in this best of all possible worlds, it seems, so you guys gave us, “Researching regulations has never been easier”. The next group would probably agree that that is true…
3) Cynical so-and-so’s. You guys are seductive, but so, so… not into rules. Personal favorite: “If you’re not confused, you will be.”
Now, for the winners. It was, believe it or not, a tough choice:
1st Prize (and an adult beverage, should we ever meet) to John Gear for “Because ignorance of all this is no excuse”.
Runner-up kudos (and a Virtual Straw Boater) to Scott Matheson for “Making Ideas Concrete (and regulating concrete)”
Thanks everybody. Let’s see if we can get an even bigger turnout this month!
