Maybe it was the late game last night. Maybe it's the fact I had to drive around to three places to only have a bunch of unshaven men in Brian Urlacher jerseys tell me they don't have the specific plumbing part I need, but I'm a little tired and irritated. It doesn't help that last week's challenge was in a bit of a pickle, scoring wise.
At the time of writing the winner would be shared with 2 recs, a three way tie for second with 1 rec, and a many many many many way tie for third with 0 recs. Also making things awkward is that that those two 2 reccers got one of their two recs via me.
Now this happened a few weeks ago, and just to be cute I gave third place to the one entry that had no recs, just to teach a lesson about trying. Now I'm going to do a 180 on that decision and teach a lesson about reccing things for the love of Pete. So first and second place points are awarded, but no third place points. Before you shout "YOU JUST DID THAT BECAUSE YOU DON'T LIKE ME AND DON'T WANT ME TO GET POINTS", You have every right to think this way, but I have every right to tell you that you'd be wrong. (I hold the same opinion of Moon Truthers.)
I will acknowledge the flip side of this argument: People should post better stuff that moves people towards reccing it. I know it's been a long season and the D'Backs performance has sort of neutered everything, but we only have four more of these, so let's finish strong! I have faith in you!

Going back to basics this week, a caption contest. You look at a picture and think of a funny thing to say about it and post it here. You also rec other entries that amuse you in some fashion. The top three getters get points.
Here is the link to the image in question (Not posted to be on the safe side regarding image policies). It's sophomoric and crude, so right up the alley of this group!
Another thing to shake things up: Going by the calendar: September 26th will be the final round of Pit Your Wits. As a sort of "Thank you" for your participation this year, I am going to let YOU pick what the challenge is! How will you do this? Well either e-mail, tweet (both of those are accessible from my profile), or tell me if you happen to run into me in the street what an idea of a challenge could be. I will pick my personal favorite and use it for the final week's challenge using my own capricious judgement. Whoever submitted the winning entry will also get PYW points, AND I will give them a high-five the next time I possibly see them in person, so there's some extra incentive.
The winner will be announced on the 26th in that post, so entries can come in until then. Be as creative and off the wall as you want in these.
So think about that and send in your ideas. And also caption that picture of Chris Johnson. Get to it!
