And, as is tradition for the last contest of the year, here’s the video:

As always, the deadline is nominally Saturday at midnight.

Go!

Translation from leonese to English: It’s peanut butter jelly time

He didn’t dare try that stunt the next year. Can you imagine a banana peel on that slippery regolith?

Mark found out that the Los Guerrilla’s were looking for him so he put on his banana suit to give them the slip.

I didnt know Brian from Family Guy was a part of FIRST!?!

Mark always wanted to be a head ref. Too bad he heard Tom Nader call them “bananas” too often.

That suit doesn’t take away from his a-peel at all!

Mark’s gone bananas, again. Someone do the math for how many times this is.

Event planning committee to Mark: We’ve got some good news and some bad news. First, the good news: you’re going to get a new suit…

“This is what I get for letting a bunch of teenagers take over the hanger…”

Could be worse.

Here we see one of Mark Leon’s efforts to be “Top Banana”…

Comparatively speaking, this make his typical blue hair look down right boring.

Soy Chiquita Banana y he llegado a decir: Yo soy el plátano primer

[npoe]
(If you don’t speak Spanish: Relax and have a banana)

Maybe I am dating myself here
[/npoe]

He’s speaking Spanish. It’s clearly a plantain suit.

Well, here it goes!

First place goes to:

*A note about Wayne’s score: while doing the final awards, I noticed there were 52 winners over the year–normally right, but I pulled the plug on contest #452. After some searching, it turns out I scored Wayne for a win in caption contest #433 when he had actually placed second. I apologize for letting this error ride for so long!

As usual, we have a few awards in tow:

Year 9 Champion: Taylor (172 points)
Year 9 Runner-Up: Wayne Doenges (151 points)

Most Wins: Wayne Doenges, Taylor, and GaryVoshol (7 each)
Always The Bridesmaid Award: EricH (106 points without winning a caption contest)
The Travis Hoffman Memorial Burn Award Award: Taylor and GaryVoshol (5 burn awards each)
The Mr. Clean Award: JaneYoung (127 points without a single burn award)
The Mr. Tenacity Award: rachelholladay (25 single-point entries this year–but still ninth place for the year!)
Part-Timer of the Year: Karibou (52 points on just 14 entries, most of anyone that entered less than half the time)
Perfect 52 Entries: Taylor, GaryVoshol, rsisk, and EricH entered all 52 caption contests this year. Also notable runs include cgmv123 and Wayne Doenges, each with 50 entries out of 52.

On to year number ten!
