Pit Your Wits: Week 1

Your weekly friendly competition returns, this year with another new host!

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to Pit Your Wits, the Snakepit's weekly frivolous competition series! I'm your new host/person who comes up with a lot of crazy prompts, ISH95. In case you're new, or you aren't and somehow forgot from last season, every week, I'm going to come up with some sort of prompt, be it a picture to caption, question to answer, or something equally crazy. You all decide the winners by voting for your favorites using the "rec" feature for comments. The comment that gets the most recs wins five points, second most gets three points, third gets one point, everyone else, zilch. I compile everyone's points into a spreadsheet, and that's how we keep score.

The season will be broken down into two segments. The first segment is from now until the All Star Break. The second is from the All Star Break to the end of the season. The points will reset in between each segment, and the posters who have the most points at the end of each segment will face off head-to-head in a final battle to be named the wittiest pitter of them all at the end of the season. Any questions? Okay, good. Off to the first prompt!

So as many of you know, I'm also one of the authors of Fang Food, so it seems fitting that it should be a food based challenge the first time out. The Diamondbacks over the past two seasons have introduced two... uh... extreme "hot dogs". Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to come up with a third extreme hot dog. This hot dog need not be limited by the bounds of reality or the culinary arts, only the bounds of your imagination. It doesn't even have to be edible. It just has to be extreme (and legal). Come up with your own, and rec your favorites!
