News photo of the week

>> Saturday, May 02, 2009



That, my friends, is an amazing image. In my head, the photo is actually a still from the awesomest lo-budget superhero movie ever yet to be made. "Yes, Silverflame," Blackhawk drawls, "The Venger has struck again and left his calling-card. It's the mayor's daughter who's in danger this time." Jump-cut to a McMansion standing in for the Mayorial Residence, where ski-masked goons with SMGs are jumping out of a pair of cars with Michigan rental tags (despite the fact that The Venger is an evil billionaire and the movie is ostensibly set in New York)--cue action theme!.

But please, don't let the bizarre reality of the scene--masked fighters behold the Mother Of God on a cooktop!--or my imagining hamper you any. In the tradition of Marvel Comics' classic No-Prizes, I hereby offer an Imaginary Awesome Thing to the reader who submits the best caption to the above image. The Imaginary Awesome Thing will be announced in the comments and telepathized instantly to the winner anywhere in the universe he or she chooses to collect it.

(Yes, I'm cheap. More importantly, I'm also lazy. Sorry.)

"Bah. Look at that costume! She wouldn't make it 3 minutes in the cage match!"

What? I should be the only one suffering "win-yet?" infestations?

I was going to give it another day, but with only two entrants and an Imaginary Awesome Thing for the prize, I'm inclined to give it to both of you and let you and Jeri figure out how to split it. ;-)

Oh, c'mon--it wasn't even that much of a contest to start with.

Fine, Imaginary Awesome Thing to everybody! Sheesh!
