|Battle of Wits: Rich White Dudes|
| This is hilarious.|
We are hilarious.
Therefore, I feel like we can download the template and come up with some pretty hilarious stuff. (Examples, as usual, after the jump.)
Additionally, I declare STRETCH the winner of the previous battle of wits. Stretch wins a cushy government job in Ottawa.
|Battle of Wits: Marc D. Rowland|
| Your challenge: find a Wikipedia entry describing a cartoon character, the hilarity of which is immeasurably improved by replacing all instances of that character's name with the text "Marc D. Rowland".|
Examples after the jump.
Additionally, I declare Dye! the winner of the previous battle of wits, mostly because his entry is the only one that still loads with any swiftness. Dye! wins a pun of his choosing.
|Bloggy Battle of Wits|
| So Mr. Marc and I are trying to come up with a good name for our brand new Montreal Improv blog. Your challenge is to come up with some decent names for us to choose from.|
Now if it weren't illegal for us as a registered Quebec business to give away a prize without a lot of hassle, I totally would. So all you can legally get is our gratitude.
I leave it to goodladd to declare winners for the previous two battles.
|Return Of The Son Of Battle Of Wits' Revenge|
| Tube Dubber allows you to take any YouTube video and overlay it with a new soundtrack. Your challenge: harness the power of this tool to achieve optimum hilarity.|

|Things Are Not Always As They A Pear|
| Did anyone else ever wonder what happened to Chrisdye's long-time friend and professorial colleague who blogged occasionally at demaisonneuve.com? Well, I was at Edinburgh airport yesterday and happened upon him sitting near the parking lot; luckily I had my camera phone handy and snapped up the scene:|
It appears to me that he is on his knees begging for his life from a particularly savage pomegranate. Any other interpretations?
(This really wasn't staged; I actually stepped out of the car at the airport and witnessed this, with not a person in sight to explain why there might be fruit sitting on a bench.)
(I reluctantly declare Ken the winner of the previous Battle of Wits, even though his entry was clearly a reggae reference rather than a funk reference. However, his was the only entry and, in any case, he's from Alberta -- so I don't think we can hold his lack of knowledge of black culture against him.)
|Battle of Wits: Dysfunktional|
| Sillytech describes itself as:|
"A weblog about comedy, technology, Canada and funk!"
But when was the last time we actually discussed funk? In order to comply with advertising standards, please address a normal Sillytech topic or member in a way that incorporates the concept of funk.
Entries may be based on wordplay (eg. "How many seats will the Liberals win in Parliament?"; eg. "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag of Dicks"), Photoshopping (see example below), or any other medium that you see fit.
I declare Budman and Gil joint winners of the previous Battle of Wits. They each win a circumcision for religious reasons.
|Grizzly battle of wits|
Which of these planes crashed moments after this picture was taken? (Let's pretend the pilot was ok.)
|Battle of Wits|
| What is this sign trying to tell us?|
eg. Parkinsonians convention this way.
I declare Alex the winner of the previous battle of wits. He wins a large beard.
eg. As his weeks-long battle with constipation finally and unexpectedly resolves itself, Bill Gates reaches for the nearest approximation of toilet paper.
eg. With the anti-trust hearings going poorly, Bill frantically tries ctrl-alt-deleting himself.
|Battle of Wits: Asian Edition, Volume 2|
The Sumo wrestler seems quite lost in a world of his own imaginings. Tell me, oh Internets, what is he thinking about? Best answer gets a prize, short stories preferred.
