Welcome to Pit Your Wits. I'm running out of funny* things to say in these introductory paragraphs before the results and next challenge, so I'm going to phone it in a little this week so I can recharge for next week. Last week's challenge involved summing up the month of April for your 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks in ten words or fewer. Let us jump the jump to see the results, eh?

* debatable


The winner of the prestegous "Gold Swatch Award" this week goes to Bryn21, for this:

The less prestigous, but still shiny, "Silver Swatch Award" is shared this week. First off our Fearless Leader had this:

One-run wins and one-run winces

SenSurround had this nugget of wisdom:

Better than last year

And yet the sky still falls.

And finally, soco gets the still not as prestigious "Bronze Swatch Award" (You can trade it in at Bookmans or something). For this reference that is dear to my heart.

I have high hopes for this week's challenge. As you might know, we start another series with the San Francisco Giants tomorrow. As you also might know, we swept them last time around. As you probably also know, the third game of that sweep was a dramatic come-from-behind victory that delighted our hearts and made flowers grow in sunny places.

Another thing you might know is that jinnah was there taking pictures of the whole thing, and in that process there was this:


Delightful, isn't it? This week's challenge can only be described as the: "SAD BUSTER POSEY PHOTOSHOP CONTEST". It's simple: take the image above and modify it in any funny way you can think of, then post it here and rec the other ones that you find amusing. Use photobucket or the image storing service of your choice to upload your entrants. You can be fancy and use Photoshop, or you can brush off that copy of MS Paint that came with your Windows 95 PC.

Unsure of how to post images? In the comment box, there is a little picture of a tree inside of a frame.


Click on that, then copy and paste the URL of your image and hit "OK". Voila, a picture!

A few guidelines:

1. Don't post anything that is NSFW.

2. Put a subject line in your entries so that those reading can hide them if need be.

3. If an image you have is particularly large (And by that I mean "Stretches the normal horizontal size of a comment") either reduce the size or post a link to it, rather than an image.

4. I don't really want to limit one image per entrant, but try not to submit hundreds. This is, again, for people reading who might get bogged down by many images in a thread.

The top three rec-receivers will get points. Entries and recs will be counted until the end of next Wednesday.
