Welcome to the eighteenth straight year of the Chief Delphi Unofficial Caption Contest! (Yes, this predates 3v3 play, Facebook losing the “the”, widespread smartphones, and a bunch of other signifiers that I’m old as heck.)
Instead, I give you the rules. (Other rules have been created, but these are the ones that see use.)
Normally, every entry gets an honorable mention worth two points because the old half-get-two-half-get-one format was a lot of work for basically zero difference. One particularly good zinger will receive the burn award and three points. Singles will be reserved for blatant copycat entries, things that cross “burn” into “okay chill dude”, or the truly incomprehensible. And don’t make me award a zero. (I think that’s happened once in 13 full years.)
There have been some updates to the rules over the years:
(“Working” gets a rather liberal interpretation, mind you.)
Since then, the only thing that’s changed is the deadline: Sunday at midnight Eastern, though entries posted afterward will count if they’re posted before I open the thread to score it.
Attention in the pits… attention in the pits: we’ve just received word that the Christa McAuliffe coin is about to be available. Please rush from the venue to line up and get it and return when in hand.
