With prizes like those I'm sure you're all eager to know how you can enter our exciting contest. It's easy! You send your name to Zack Parsons with the subject line CONTEST ENTRY and you include your contest entry either as a link or as an attachment. But wait, what is your contest entry? You have three options!
ENTRY OPTION #1: Readers of Something Awful should be familiar with the various OS-tans; anime girls representing computer operating systems. Recently a mean bad ALoD recipient decided to create a Something Awful-tan and drew a comic about her getting punched in the stomach and vomiting. That just won't stand! As your entry for the art category create a Something Awful tan, either for the entire site of Something Awful or for one of the sections like the ROM Pit or Photoshop Phriday. Bonus points will be awarded if she is pictured abusing the man in the ALoD comic. This can be animated if you choose.
ENTRY OPTION #2: Write a poem, sing a song, draw a picture, or animate a cartoon about Robocop working as a new on-the-scene reporter for CNN and having a deep and hostile rivalry with Anderson Cooper.
ENTRY OPTION #3: Come up with an advertisement for a fictitious J-List product using your art skills and tools such as Photoshop, pens, and ephedrine.
Linked files are preferred, attached files are accepted, and archived (ZIP, RAR, etc.) files are strictly forbidden! We do not trust your compressed secrets! All entries must be received by midnight Eastern Time on April 4th! Winners will be announced on April 8th! Sorry Europe and Australia, this contest is for people in the United States and Canada only! Must be 18 or over to win because of the scandalous nature of some of the prizes!
I look forward to your submissions and I will be reminding you until you hate me utterly about this contest! I may have to use fewer exclamation marks because I am pretty sure I used up our entire inventory on this update.
Obviously, the first thing necessary to getting back in shape is buying a bunch of expensive knick-knacks.
Finally, a look at the candidate's long-delayed tax returns.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
