The Mister and I have reviewed the entries and surprisingly enough quickly agreed on the winning entry. I had my cell phone handy lest we needed a tie breaker. No need. Before I proceed I’d like to take a moment for a couple of honorable mentions.
Miss Heather’s Choice:
Actually, the only irony here is that the person drinking this was actually old and English. — Walrus Taco
This one is headed in the right direction, but it doesn’t address “800”. Close, but no cigar.
Mister Heather’s Choice:
Olde English 800: It’s gotten to that point. Time for help. — Em Two
We both laughed our asses off at this one but felt “Time for help” was a bit redundant. If you’re drinking Olde English 800 with a straw this is already apparent. No need to belabor the issue.
And now without further ado the winner:
Olde English 800: Suck it like a Slurpee, Crush it like a Motherfucker. — Em Two
Congratulations Em Two! I will be getting in touch with you regarding your prize in the next day or two. This week I present for your enjoyment this specimen from Greenpoint’s very own Bushwick Inlet!
There is something elegantly practical about this. Not only does the rubber band keep the bag secure, but it provides a good grip so as to resist slippage. Who wants to cry over spilled Courvoisier? What’s more, it is eerily reminiscent of something one would see on There, I Fixed It. I like it!
The deadline for captioning this bad boy is Monday, February 1, 2010 5:00 p.m. EST. I haven’t determined a prize yet but I’ll come up with something. Get cracking folks!
When I saw this my jaw dropped. I was literally speechless. This is really saying something since I usually have a lot to say. Some could argue (successfully) that I have too much to say. Not this time. Anyone out there have a caption for this lovely item? If so, please tender them via comments or email at:

I look forward to seeing what you guys and gals cook up. Methinks I’ll offer a prize of a 8″ x 12″ print of the winner’s choice. Get cracking Greenpointers and Williamsburgers!
UPDATE, January 21, 2010: I am pleased to report I have already received a number of compelling entries! Since I remembered I didn’t give a deadline. Here it is: Monday, January 24, 2010 5:00 p.m. EST.
