Reader participation time
Hey everybody! Remember when this blog had a Robot of the Week contest? Remember how much fun that was? Remember how I sent the Robot of the Month winner an envelope full of trash? It used to be about the community. The Internet community. Somewhere along the way, though, Dr. Mystery lost sight of the altruistic community-building the robot contest engendered. Instead, he abandoned the contest so he could spend more time working on his bizarre and selfish rants. Me, me, me. That's all this jerk cared about. Information superhighway? More like an information super-my-way. Dr. Mystery forgot his roots. He forgot the people that helped make him the failure he is today. But, c'mon gang, it's never too late to change. Or change back. So I, Dr. Mystery, am instigating a new contest. This is a caption contest. I will put a random photo up on the blog, and you, my lovely readers, if you choose to enter, will write a caption for the photo. I will keep the contest open for ten days. Unlike the last contest, this contest's winners will be decided not on merit, but by being drawn out of a hat at the end of the ten-day period. Dr. Mystery has moved beyond the concept of good and bad, better and best, pro and con. He knows that in the real world, success is achieved mostly by way of a lucky break, and the contest will reflect this reality. Also, everyone gets a chance to win this way. The random winner of each month's contest will win a homemade compilation CD created by Dr. Mystery himself. Not too shabby, am I right? I guess that depends on your taste. Contact info will be announced when the winner is revealed. Remember, you have to play to win. Without further ado, here is the first photo in our caption contest. To enter, leave your caption as a comment to this post. Whoo!
