In case you haven't been paying attention, one of my prizes from a past Yod Hunt was the dubious privilege of hosting my own Yod Hunt (AKA Yod's Photo Scavenger Hunt AKA Jody Hunt AKA iYod Hunt AKA that weird contest where you go around creating and/or taking ridiculous pictures for the enjoyment of others). 

After months of badgering, Yod finally taught me the secret Yod Hunt handshake and gave me the go-ahead.  So without further adieu, here we go!

First, the rules for this week –

  • The contest starts now and runs until 11:59 Pacific Time, Wednesday November 21st.  Now you can't claim you were too busy this weekend to participate!  Whee!
  • There will be a small prize awarded to the first person to post a complete contest entry.  That person will also be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE, so don't worry about when you get your entry in (as long as it's before the deadline).
  • Partial contest entries are accepted, but probably won't win the GRAND PRIZE.  However, you may receive a consolation prize, so post even if you can't come up with something for one of the topics!

  • The GRAND PRIZE winner will be chosen completely subjectively by myself and the fine folks from the Reptile Parcel Service.
  • The GRAND PRIZE is a secret.  (Actually, all the prizes are, for that matter.)  Mostly because I haven't settled on exactly what the prizes are yet.  However, I do have a box in my garage with items that were too valuable to give away and/or too dear to me to sell – if you're one of the lucky winners this week, you may get your hands on something that I could never bear to part with except to a fellow Yod Hunt member.  Of course, there's also always a chance you'll get a much more useful, but much less personal, gift card to somewhere special…but again, you'll have to enter to find out what you will win!

Ok, ok…enough rules…time to get this contest rolling.  Good luck, contestants, and let the photo hunt begin!

1. Incorporate the words "In Yod We Trust" into a piece of original artwork and take a picture of it.  The definition of "artwork" is up to you.

2. Take a picture of what just might be "The Next Big Tourist Attraction".

3. You almost had to know there would be a Thanksgiving-related question in this contest.  But turkeys are so trite.  So instead, take a picture of something related to ANY OTHER holiday that you wish people would celebrate twice a year – once during its regularly scheduled time, and once in November instead of Thanksgiving.

4. Show us a picture whose caption is "Blackmail Fodder".  (Warning – if you think this photo could really be used for blackmail purposes, it's probably not a good idea to post it on the internet.)

5. Take a picture of someone/something acting out a pun.  Your entry can be an illustration, as long as it's something you made, and not just something you found on the internets.  (For example, to illustrate the pun "The roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference", you could have someone dress up as a very rotund and obviously labeled knight named Sir Cumference.)  Bonus points if the pun makes others groan.  Double bonus points if the pun makes others throw rotten fruit at you.
