Yay Dave! This was one of my favorites when we first got the list. Hope all is well!
Enjoy the Earth!
"The best things in life are Squee!"
Congrats to Sheldonistas AyersRock2000 for their winning submission: They'll be getting their choice of any Original Art they want from the Sheldon archives.
Also, I should mention our two fantastic runner-ups:
- "When life hands you billions, make a talking duck." (Which is the best summary of the strip I've heard in a long while.), and...
- "100% Awesome-Sauce". (Which is a great summary of the mood of the strip.)
The runners-up will both receive invisible-but-highly-potent-high-fives-sent-over-the-internet.
Thanks to everyone for participatin'. It was so much fun to read all the suggested taglines, and I hope you had fun with it! Thanks!
Also: I should mention, in regards to Monday's Caption Contest, that I'm aware the Sheldon Forum signup system is a bit -- ahem -- clunky, and I apologize if it's given you any grief. I've gone in and manually "confirmed" all the new signups from the last few days...so new users should be good to go. But if you're finding you still can't log in, drop me an e-mail and we'll fix what needs fixin'! "Technology: Makin' Life Super Easy For As Long As Anyone Can Remember."
Ah, cute. I was leaning toward 100% Awesome-Sauce because it wasn't character-specific, but honestly, Flaco is seven layers of awesome, so it comes down to the same thing!
Congrats with the new tagline Dave.
I voted for "Seven Layers of Awesome", but the winner and the two runner-ups are cool too, so I can't complain. ;-)
On another note, your comment in the end about technology really crakced me up. As a former tech-supporter and sys-admin I can relate to that (in spades!).
That's nice. I voted for seven layers of awesome. What do you think about the idea that the tagline won because it was first on the list?
I think that sounds like sour grapes talkin'! (Just kidding...) I actually thought that this was probably the most clever of the nominees. I just didn't vote for it because I thought it might have been a little too "inside" for the tag-line.
Plus, I felt obliged to vote for myself. I'm just bummed that mine came in 4th and I didn't even get an Honorable Mention high five!
