The supreme sandwich ruling










No. 00–0001/2. Decided October 5, 2010

Per Curiam

In their opening briefs, Sandwits made strenuous appeals at wit. Too strenuous. The Calvert Court (aka, the Cocktails Desk) wanted something like this: "The Clarence Thomas tongue sandwich -- hold the tongue." That sort of thing.

Plus, the Calvert Court thinks some of you were typing with your mouth full. 



Honorable mentions, though:


 -- The Scalia Sub (hmpstd)
 -- The John Roberts Justice Club Sandwich (Oliveloaf Wendell Homes)

The contest prize, a signed copy of What the Great Ate will be awarded to the winner of a brand new contest, which will be posted later today. See appeal procedures below.

Any petition for the rehearing of any judgment or decision of the Calvert Court shall be posted 90 seconds after the posting of the judgment or decision, unless the Calvert Court is getting a soda from the machine, and then you have longer. The petitioner shall press Post 40 times (a total of 80 captchas) and click on Dining@Large every few seconds or so to make sure they've all shown up.

Another capricious ruling from the liberal court system.

the winner of a brand new contest, which will be posted later today.


I love you man, but what the hell are you doing? You post the losers in the morning, slag on everyone for not complying with your secret wishes, and now it's 10 PM and nothing. Not very Sunshiney, Kid.

That was meant in fun - hyperbole mode

Hyperbolic but accurate.

sean, I always consider the motto of my college football team the DeVry Screaming Otters - Work Hard Enough to Get By, Play Drunk. Go Otters!

Create a contest with a prize and not give it away when you don't like the entries?

Create a contest and not list what "you" want the entries to be?

Create a contest, post the losers -- 100 percent of all entries -- and just move along with: come back later, enter a new contest, increase my traffic, and have another opportunity to lose.

Yep, you work for Tribune Papers.

Give the prize to "hmpstd" -- he was top of the food chain.

This contest is a Fail.
