Attention: It’s Time for the Second Bimonthly(?)/Periannual/Bicentennial ABDPBT Sucky Sweepstakes!!
[singlepic=76,320,240,,right] That’s right, it’s that time again! I’d like to announce the second contest in the transparent self-promoting sweepstakes giveaways! The rules are the same as last time: your task is to find a candidate for “This Week in Stupid” by this time next week (Wednesday, September 10, 2008, at 12:30 p.m. PST.

And then I would crack open a Mountain Dew and say, “Sound like it’s worth playing for?” And you would all say, “OH YES.”

That’s right, a $50 value, all for trolling the internet for examples of stupid, which you would be doing anyway. Your new file looks like this, except it is brand new (I am too lazy to take a new picture):
