New Contest

Me and B-Cack have been talking about having another contest to win free swag, but that was about as far as we could go. Neither of us have any cool ideas for what the contest should be. This means that I will have a contest, to come up with a contest, to win free swag. Any ideas? Well don’t sit there discussing it with your PC, put it in the comments.

Also, here is a little something to waste a few moments of your time. I was %88 correct and the ones I missed I only averaged 34 miles off.

96% correct. Avg error 6 miles. I had trouble with exact placement of South Dakota, and Tennesee without bordering reference points. Oddly though I got Kansas right without any reference points. I say this little geography challenge should be the contest.

First!

It's really not subjective enough to be a good contest. My mistakes were placing the square states without any bordering refferences.

Oh and Delaware. That little bastard of a state.

98% avg error 1 mile the second time. Indiana was first and I was slightly off.

I'll keep thinking about contest ideas. I'm home sick today, so I have plenty of time to think.

I think it might be luck of the draw with the state test. If you get the interior states first it's a little hard to place them without reference form another state.

States smaller than peas shouldn't count!

A contest...guess what illness fitch made up to lay out of work?

Um...how about a crazy hit contest, the goal being to get the craziest/funniest/whatever referal on your site meter by dropping your blog link all over? That's all I've got.

You know, not a bad idea. I already am on the first page of hits for searches "Girls Gone Wild" and "Join the Canadian Army".

Contest ideas:

1.) Best reader-submitted poo story.

2.) Dr. Phat asks a question, readers have to respond. Funniest or most heartwarming answer wins.

3.) Best campaign slogan for upcoming Dr. Phat run for as-yet unnamed office.

4.) "Link To Dr. Phat" link-a-thon, where the prize is given to the blog with the most gratutious, unrelated links to Dr. Phat Tony posts over a certain period of time.

Oh, and I did that state thing a while ago. Think I got like 80%. I'm maybe a little too competitive when there's a timer on-- I was going so fast it took me three times to drop Texas in the right place.

I win Uber's contest. The answer is Bronchitis. Yay for me!

I keep getting hits for "Conjugal visits" and "Orgy in Oregon" via search engines, and have been for some time now.

I win again!

Contest idea - Model Dr. Phat Tony. Re-post your pic (with the bar, of course) and we get to play "dress-up" with PhotoShop.

Beer chugging?

Personally I like the idea of a Link-whoring contest. See how many people you can get to link to you, Who ever has the most trackbacks at the end of the time period wins.

How about having a contest to write the funniest post about some nonsensacle topic of the Doc's choosing, such as fictional hippy beatings, or funniest ways to torture a terrorist?

How about a wrestling contest of some sort?

Hmmmmm.
Uber, Mensa, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, jello.

Phew! Is it warm in here?

 
At 2:08 PM, Blogger JermCool said...

88% Here too (27 Miles off). Those east coast states are killer.

Let's go for Jello Wrestling bets.

88% 22miles

Who can find the best drunk picture contest

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger Cove Rebel said...

I vote for the best poo story.

 
At 6:33 PM, Blogger The Anti-Hippie said...

92% first time, 24 miles
94% second time, 16 miles

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger The Anti-Hippie said...

and how about most realistic drawings (photoshop, etc.) of the Hildebeest

I had trouble at the beginning when I had to place states like Colorado without any references. I would be almost dead-on, but just far enough off to be wrong.

I like Wyatt and Fm's ideas.

Hey wait a minute, what's the prize for the contest to think up a contest?

I'm stabbing anyone who says jello. ;)

 
At 8:04 AM, Blogger fmragtops said...

Well, I think if the J***o (don't want to get stabbed) is the winner, then that's a prize unto itself.

I kind of like the idea of who can make up the most creative nonexisant american hollowday. For example (Bomb them till they glow day)

fitch gave me a contest idea in a comment he left on A Tale of Two Stories (I'm not link-whoring, just illustrating [Oh sure you're not!] Shut uuup!).

Anyhoo, it could be a serial-blog hopping-story contest where each segment has to include a reference and link to DPT swag. DPT and B-Cack could start the story and then each blog picks it up one after the other until all competitors have contributed.

How about "Dress the Military."
(inspired by Whatt Earp's idea)
Submit the best picture of a soldier wearing DPT swagg..
oops...already done. (dpt---> grin (*,,,,,*)
(Do I at least get 3/4 of a tee for lack of originality?)

 
At 6:39 PM, Blogger Tyler D. said...

I vote drunk picture.

 
At 1:30 PM, Blogger Dr. Phat Tony said...

Hey %97 correct with only 7 mile average off and under 225 seconds.
