Had to miss this round. [Frown] Real time work photo images took precendence.
Anyway, you guys are way too clever for me. Adelaide decided to roll out the family once again and this was brilliantly staged. Frog feathers and Kitoboo also get the mentions, but this round I'm going to go with Pixiechic

Jay Tea's entry had me as soon as I saw it, although Adelaide almost stole my vote from him. I take it the Swiffer Ninja in the front actually studies martial arts?

My vote goes to Adelaide. I don't have that many family members to use nor is there enough black in the house to cover all of us in head to toe black [Smile] This was a challenging round. I had asked hubby to take a picture of me in the "wax on wax off" pose in front of our sliding glass door...and he said well why don't you do this. That's how I got the rope to stand straight [Big Grin]

My vote is for Jay Tea this round - I keep imagining his co-workers stumbling across that scene and wondering WTF? Unless he always does that at work... [Smile]

The ninja in the front doesn't know anything about martial arts, but she does dance, skate, play soccer, and occasionally rock-climb. The girl is fit!

The one bent up on the floor - that's her standard party trick. She's not even as bent as she can get, usually she can touch her toes to her chin in that position.

The purple-socked ninja is, sadly, my son. Even worse is that only one sock is purple. We barely got the little one to cooperate because she wanted that duster really bad. Apparently watering plants is for novice ninja. She was also confused about the challenge because she wanted to wear all white again (like when she was Lennon).

Edit: "screen" to "scene"

Jay Tea, because his picture really made me laugh, and because I could use him around my office to destroy all the styrofoam that always seems to make it's way into my cubicle!

Adelaide - though I am starting to think she has an unfair advantage with such a large and willing cast to hand. Honourable mention to Jay Tea as his made me laugh. I am very impressed by everyone though because you all came up with something good and I couldn't think of anything [Frown]

Am I the only one slightly alarmed by the number of swords appearing in these pictures?

Well, I couldn't have beaten all the other entries anyway. Great job, all! And I'm voting for Jay Tea.

PS: trollface, I'm going to print out all the pictures you submit to these contests and make a calendar out of them. Should make me the most popular girl on campus. [Wink]

My entry was inspired by a combination of trollface's and Pixiechic's. Since levitating a vaccuum cleaner is harder than standing on one foot my vote goes to Pixiechic.

It was tough for me to eliminate some others, but I finally came down to two, trollface and SatansHobbit. I really cannot decide. They're equally good and they both just crack me up. Who knew trollface was so graceful? The expression on SatansHobbit is great, not to mention his stance and outfit. What to do? Guess it's up to a coin toss.

And the winnah is *flip* SatansHobbit by way of tails.

Not quite sure what to say to that. Just make sure you send me a copy.

Not sure if that should get a "thank you" or a "and why not?" Of course, it was only after posting the photo that I realised that I should have had both arms out straight and reached the TV by matching the curve of my right hand downwards. Never mind.

I'll second (fourth?) the admiration of the mural on ChildofMusic's wall, though. Very pretty.

Well, it wasn't meant as a slight. [Smile] I loved your pic. It was the graceful pose with feather duster in hand that had me giggling, though. I had visions of you craning around your place whilst you dusted.

Hehe, thank you for all the compliments. It's actually a mural painted on my wall for me by my mother, who was an art major in college. She did it about two years ago, and it took an entire month to complete...it stretches corner to corner.
