Okay everyone! Challenge 37 asks you to show us what you would do to get your hands on a million bucks.

Of course, to get my hands on a million bucks, all I would do is touch the screen

Subfolder

Slideshow


Rules:

Posters have 24 hours from the post that sets the new challenge to submit their pictures to the thread.
Voting will then start, continuing for another 24 hours.
After those 24 hours, the votes will be counted, and the winner issues the next challenge.
All pictures must be taken specifically for this thread.
One entry per person per round.
Once you have posted a pic, you cannot change it.
The first person to post a pic (not including the person who set the challenge) automatically gets one bonus vote.
One vote per person.
You can't vote for yourself.
You do not have to have entered a picture to vote for the winner.
Votes must be posted in bold. If quoting someone else, please edit out bold tags, to avoid confusion. Please do not put any other text in bold.
In the event of a tie, the person who posted their picture first wins.
Votes are cast for the content of a picture, not picture quality or photographic skills. Vote for originality, effort and comedy.
Be honest. If the challenge is to have a picture taken with a dog that is not yours, then don't take a picture with your dog. You're only cheating yourself.
No Photoshopping or editing of any kind. You can reduce the size of your pictures, but no cropping or anything else. The photos must be as you took them.
This is the Photobucket page for this competition. The name is "snopesphoto", and the password is "snopes". Visit here and upload the picture to the appropriate subfolder, putting your name in the "description" field. Provide a direct link to the photo in your post.
Be careful when choosing a filename for your photo, before uploading it. 2 photos with the same name in the same folder can cause problems with Photobucket. It's suggested that you save the photo with a filename that is a combination of the challenge name and your name. So, if your name is "Discogal" and the challenge is "take a picture with a dog that is not yours", then "Disconotmydog" would be a good filename.
The winner, once they have set the new challenge, will create a new subfolder, obviously titled.
The winner will set the new challenge in a new thread, which is to be titled "24 Hour Photo Challenge", and which is to contain the name of the new challenge and the round number.
These rules are to be pasted into the first post of the new challenge.
The first post should also contain a direct link to the new subfolder, and one to the slideshow for that subfolder ("http://s107.photobucket.com/albums/m288/snopesphoto/NAME OF SUBFOLDER/?action=view&slideshow=true" Note, this url, as written will not work, as it contains spaces. Where there are spaces in the "name of subfolder" space, replace them with "%20").

Alright! The lines are now open for voting. Artemis gets one vote for being first, and going slightly mad gets one for the novel concept that coin people can give birth to money [Big Grin] . Honorable mention to both pixiechic and SatansHobbit.

SatansHobbit. After all, now that you all know my weakness for Blackadder, how can I do anything but melt at the sight of that picture? [Smile]

I must say, this was a very meta round. Lots of references to previous pictures--Pixiechic and Andrew. [Smile]

Has to be our resident cultural icon, Andrew of Ware, with his clever follow on from the previous innings round. Or was that to avoid a follow on?

ETA: Mentions to everyone as I could have chosen any one, as this rounds winner.

(And I do have a whole bunch of foreign play money, so having some CT money wouldn't be too odd - of course, what I have is only play money because most of the countries represented have gone over to the Euro, but still...)

NeeCD had it right - it is a dog treat although it does smell and taste like a cigar (pre-used)  - .

Four Kitties: The Wombles was one of the 5 minute stop animation cartoons that was shown as the last thing on children's BBC before it switched over to the news hour. They were so popular that they spawned several hit singles, particularly around Christmas. Andrew quite rightly keeps the fact that he has their albums a secret! Since he's had the guts to go public though, I'm going to have to vote for him (Andrew).

Honourable mention to kitoboo - I always wondered why snopes and Barbara put up with us.

And TwoGuyswithaHat, I'm sure you've noticed what an obtuse get I can be!
