Chop of the Month Contest!

OK, someone needs to start one.
So I'll start one.

Hopefully some of the regulars will join in.

It will start today, and run until March 12.

Here's the picture:


The theme of the contest: "Sticking out like a sore thumb."
Leaving it up to your interpretation. That way, everyone can participate, and we can all judge with all kinds of angles. This way too, I can play, and I can't have a specific end in mind. I have no advantage this way.

Remember though - the more creative you are, the better you will be judged.

Let's 'chop!

Re: Chop of the Month Contest!

By the way - the winner - as always, gets to pick the next picture, and the next theme. That's your motivation!

Simple really - but I did a lot of stuff that you might not even see.

Re: Chop of the Month Contest!

I suppose I could use some other memes, since a certain pic was pilfered from a shop contest on another forum a while back..lol.. or maybe it was just chance that the same pic was used in a shop contest.

Re: Chop of the Month Contest!

Thumpin - you lost me with the whole contest fiasco - care to explain.

thebrown -
That was something that I thought about, but I never could make it work for me.
You did a good job.

Jenny was his girl, yes...but the original script for the movie was a story of Forrest Gump's true love, his frickin' sweet pimped out truck.

Re: Chop of the Month Contest!

For more than 30 years, the Play..boy Mansion has been the very embodiment of decadence. Located in Holmby Hills, California, just 20 minutes from Sunset Boulevard, the Mansion is home to paintings by Salvador Dali, remote-controlled headboards, black marble floors, and dozens of scantily-clad bunnies eager to bring fantasies to life.

Hugh Hefner adds this bed to his collection. Some visiters found it to be a sore thum parked in the lawn. But Heff know good body line's .

Please don't post pictures like that, this is a family-friendly place.
Hope this pic meets aproval it does stick out and that was the criteria for the chop.
