Does this helmet make my head look big?
The AirPigz Caption Contest will indeed make a comeback this next Monday morning September 13th. The poll asking if you think it should return was a tie between 'yes' and 'yes, but only if it comes with bacon' - with a few votes actually saying 'no'... what's up with that? Anyway, now the prize for the winners of each game will be BACON!
Since the 'Bacon Parties' at my campsite at Oshkosh 2010 seemed to go over really well, I figure that's the perfect way to reward the sharp wit of championistic captioners. But it's more than just a little bacon. I'm thinking some sort of mega bacon sandwich for each winner. This means you're gonna have to be at Oshkosh 2011 to claim your prize(s), so if you haven't done so already, better get to clearing your calendar for some or all of July 25-31, 2011.
If you don't know what the Caption Contest is, it's pretty simple. I post an odd aviation related picture on a Monday morning and then you have until Wednesday night to submit up to 3 funny/cool/clever captions. Then I pick the best 5 and put them in a 24 hour poll for everyone to vote on. The caption with the most votes is the winner, and I post that pic and caption on Friday morning. It's all harmless avgeek fun, and so far it remains unregulated by the government! Check out a long list of winners at this Caption Contest link, and get your mind thinking about bacon, Bacon, BACON!
