    3points--1st Place--MCS--"safer snack"
    (I thought this was about the funniest thing I'd ever seen when I was in school and they taught us sex-education....but when I saw it w/a "pink wrapper", I about died laughing!)

    2points--2nd Place--Paul AKA MontyDog--"Latest NikonCafe Member" (when I saw this, I really had a good chuckle....then I wondered if there actually is a screening process to determine how many people are signing up their beloved pets to join our little community...)

    1point--3rd Place--Patrick Bramlett--"500-Internal Server Error, Page Cannot be displayed" (I've worked in the computer business myself...actually alongside Patrick before we had children....so I've seen these things first hand....but what's so funny to me is those folks bring their computers in having ABSOLUTELY no idea what's wrong w/their machine!!!---DUH!!!:confused:  )

    1st Place with 3 points - Old Man's Smile by Yokimbo. This image did exactly what the contest topic asked for...it made me smile!!

    2nd Place with 2 points - 500-Internal Server Error by Patrick Bramlett. When you see conditions like this...it makes you smile, then you want to lash out and smack the idiot that allows his machine to get so goofed up!

    3rd Place with 1 point - Safer Snack/Double Wrapped by MCS. Michael...you are a gifted individual, you have wonderful vision and the assets to make your vision come to fruition!

    Congratulations to whoever wins and to all who participated in this contest...and thanks for the smiles!!! :smile:

    #3 - "Tiny Fascination" - Leigh
  8. I'd like to vote on this challenge, because I like the idea that you've gone to all this trouble just to make me smile. And I did. In fact on some of them I positively guffawed :biggrin:.

    #1 - Old Man's Smile by Kim Guerrette (Yokimbo)
    #2 - Hand over the Cheese & Nobody Gets Hurt by Philippe Roger
    #3 - Safer Snack/Double Wrapped by Michael Schuster (MCS)

    There would be lots of honourable mentions as well, thanks everyone for the giggles :smile:
  9. Here in the State of Washington we are creating lot's of Voting Controversy, so in keeping with my State Mandate I need to figure out a way to register multiple times, including showing up as dead people and felons. Patrick, can you help me out with that ????

    OK, now on to the voting, and this one even more subjective than most:

    #1 - Leigh, Tiny Fascination - no idea why, pehaps it is just the simplicity of it all, and a reminder of what is important

    #2 - Dave Birdsong, Smile? Yeah, right - not only does it make me smile, but obviously he is smiling and having a grand time as well.

    Now, #3 was a really tough choice. You have your Dog's, your filthy computer, your Kid's and Monkey's, but in the end.....

    #3, shame on you Virginia...Photographer's Angle. The only thing that would have been better would be if he had a plumber's tool-belt and was photographing a toilet :smile:

    Good on ya' all, thanks for the smiles this morning......

    Hi Robert,

    I thought this was an enormously creative contest. I regret that with other things going on, photography has taken a back seat lately, and I was not able to enter this contest. I would have loved to! But that is no excuse for not voting, so here it is:

    3 points to mcs, Michael Schuster, for A Safer Snack - this is hilarious. And it fits right in with that tarantula thread.
    2 points to Beaucamera, Virginia, for The Photographer's Angle - I always laugh at rear cleavage!
    1 point to Patrick Bramlett, for 500 - Internal Server Error, Page cannot be displayed - I've got to clean my server?

    A couple of Honorable Mentions (sorry - I don't know if these hurt or feel good):

    * Go Away by gbenic, Greg. Memories of dates gone by. This Lena should choose the goose.
    * Latest Cafe Member by Paul aka Montydog. I suppose this guy's screen name is "Montydog nka Paul".

    I also want to mention Jon H's entry. Don't make fun of my haloween dude!

    There were a couple others that wee funny too, but after all that booze (see above) I can't go on. ...

  16. 1st place - 3 pts: Yokimbo's Old Man's Smile - Pure bliss! :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: I have been trying to get the same kind of shots from Belle for months, but she won't stop moving!

    2nd place - 2 pts: Vernon's A giggle a day....... - Some funny business going on between those two. The blur adds to this excellent capture of "the moment" :Love:

    3rd place - 1pt: Paul's Latest NikonCafe Member? - Probably the smartest, too! :Smart: Monty's attentive look just cracked me up.

    Honorable mention to Michael for this daring banana, and to Patrick for "his" server. Lots of humor and incredible talent on this forum. Finally, a big thanks to Robert for this "out there" topic!
  17. 1st Place - 3 pts. Patrick, "Internal Server Error"

    2nd Place - 2 pts. MCS, "Safer Snack"

    3rd Place - 1 pt. Vernon, "A giggle a day"
  18. It was difficult to choose !!

    1) Yokimbo for "Old Man's Smile"

    Well here goes! My votes for Challenge #14 are:

    First Place(3 Points): Dave Birdsong, for "Phil Madeira", an infectious laugh that really comes through and a great photo too.
    Second Place(2 Points): Phil K, for "My Date", the opposite extreme, which after a long day at work I could sure appreciate too.
    Third Place(1 Point): Leigh, for "Tiny Fascination", the human touch scored with me.

    Hey, Angelo, your entry was "pretty" cool too!

    Thanks everyone for your entries!:smile:
