Resurrection Ale can contest

cases of resurrection, just waiting to be slurrrrpedEarly this morning, Midnight Sunner Jason Z came up with a brilliant concept:

Sam, I'm thinking a photo contest with the new Resurrection can. Have the readers take pictures of them drinking it in weird places or drinking it in weird situations.


The cans hit bar and liquor stores later this week -- available pretty much wherever you've seen the bottles of Resurrection.

Pick up a six-pack (they'll run you about $10), put one of the cans in a funny situation. You can be drinking it, or it can be sitting somewhere weird. Take a photo and send it to me -- ...

The deadline to send me photos is May 31. I'll post all the photos on Midnight Sun, and we can vote on them together. The winner will receive a wickedly awesome prize, which just might possibly be a free six-pack of Resurrection -- or something even better, if such a thing exists.

Midnight Sunners assemble!

This photo will also be my Baltimore Happy Place!

Just to be clear on this, before the issue arises:

Will "altered" photos (Photoshop or other photo/art editing programs) be admissible?

I'd like to submit a funny photo essay w/ the cans and my flabongo, but I'm scared of breaking ADMVII's Beer. Drinking. Rules.

Rule 1 -- No editing or photoshopping of any images.

Rule 2 -- Flabongos are not only allowed but encouraged. Hiccup.

Rule 3 -- Sam Sessa shall henceforth be referred to as King Sam the Merciful.

Man shoots perch fish from tower of Lo-Cal beer............. the story at 11.........

What the freak--I mean, Preak--is a "flabongo"? [scampers off to Internet-search-engine........... gets sucked into playing Pac-Man...]

dave trembley could win this easily by imbibing in the dugout during a game like walter mathau in the bad news bears. what does he have to lose at this point?

Start a facebook page, blog about. Sun isn't held liable. Next blog post.

So that the Sun has no real linkage or liability, you could send all your photos to my email and I will post them all on my blog The Owl Meat Apocrypha. I use it to supplement my columns here.

Is that okay, Sam?

P.S. All shark snuff photos will be posted. No photoshopping.

never mind. ryan97ou set up something better

Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby introduce the Resurrection Photoshop Can Contest.
