Caption Contest #41 Winner(s) - Goblin Revenge

 Ok, here's the deal. The airplane in the pic is the Douglas XF-85 'Goblin' (goblin: noun- a grotesque sprite or elf that is mischievous or malicious toward people), and I think this time around, the goblins were really working against us. Some real life people were acting like goblins Friday night when squarespace.com (the platform that AirPigz is built on) was maliciously attacked bringing down thousands of websites. The downtime knocked out the last 3 or 4 hours of voting, but since things were back up by about 10pm, I decided to extend voting til midnight. And, in the last 2 hours of voting, the second caption shown here caught up with the first and we wound up with another tie.

 Instead of having a tie-breaker poll tho, I figured both of these captions deserve a bacon sandwich at OSH11 for having to deal with the mayhem. So congrats to twitter followers @bradkoehn for the top caption, which just might be the most words ever in a winning caption... and to @jimway for the lower one, which I'm pretty sure is the fewest words ever in a winning caption. And as always, thanx to everyone who submitted a caption... it wouldn't be a contest without you!

 There's gonna be a lot of bacon flying around at my campsite in Camp Scholler at Oshkosh 2011, so it's a good thing I've already started drawing up plans for a super swine sizzler! And remember, the bacon sandwiches are specifically for AirPigz game winners, but there will be free bacon strips available to anyone who wants to stop by and chew the fat : ) Details on the days and times for the official AirPigz bacon parties at OSH11 will be posted in July, but you need to make plans to be at OSH11 right now! Oshkosh 2011: July 25-31.
