Well, I think it's been 24 hours or so. Now it's time to vote!

There are some really great entries!

I wish I'd been able to do one, but today is Mr. Charlotte's (Frozen Charlie's?) birthday and I've been very busy. Besides, I couldn't compete with folks who are willing to get nekkid or be photographed sitting on the john. [lol] I'll be back to vote later.

I'm so torn between Trollface and SatansHobbit that I'm going to have to go completely different. Jay Tea's cracked me up because I almost did the same thing with a Shania Twain CD.

But you guys are all brilliant. You always impress me with creativity and humor.

It was a near thing between trollface and SatansHobbit. But trollface gets my vote because A: He was first, B: His pose is priceless, and C: he looks good nekkid.

This is a hard one, they're all very good. While SatansHobbit's is excellent and and has some great details, I just keep coming back to trollface. Well done.

Well, I'll buck the trend and vote for SatansHobbit - I seriously hope you used a timer on your camera and didn't actually make someone take that pic.

I'm laughing so hard at all these pictures, I've got tears running down my face and I'm starting to hyperventilate (I'm fine, really). Oh my...

(As a very bizarre by the by, I ran a spellcheck on this post (Google toolbar), and the suggested correction for SatansHobbit was Satanshobag. Is that even a real word? Just thought I'd share.)

I have to vote for Pixiechic, because I cannot believe she was able to convince her husband to put on makeup, let her take a picture AND post it on the internet. Brilliant!

ETA: Tootsie, trollface and SatansHobbit, you all have a lot more guts than I'll ever have! [lol]

Trollface did well and while it's not my thing, I'll give credit for getting nekkid. But I give more credit for using that and dressing in a bra, so it's SatansHobbit for me.

Honourable mentions to kitoboo and Tootsie. the expressions were spot on.

Alas I can't ignore trollface, who's pumping out great photos every challenge without the advantage of all the props and assistants that a lot of us can call on. He really can't go any more mimimalistic now without a potato peeler (or a hand sander.)

Carrying on the embarassment theme, I couldn't resist doing this this morning. It's been there four hours now, including 1/2 an hour of me cackling like a loon in the corner of the newsagent watching people do double takes when they saw it. I think everyone is too frightened to pick it up.

Trollface gets my vote for literally making me laugh all day (sorry, you're just funny naked [Wink] ) but SatansHobbit very nearly pipped him to it.

Couldn't participate this round as I was ill and couldn't think of anything funny. Brain ache inhibits creativity.

My vote goes to SantansHobbit, though it wouldn't have been a winner without trollface's effort on the cover of 'Gay Monthly' so kudos there too [lol]

The good thing about a weekend round is, I'm sitting here alone crying with laughter instead of choking and smothering to try to hide from coworkers. I have to go with SatansHobbit, with honorable mentions to Adelaide, Pixiechic, Jay Tea, and TootsiePlunkette.

And now I have to go dry the tears and Diet Coke off my keyboard.
