    Ok, it's time to vote! Here was the contest:

    Book contest:

    In the spirit of joke items, looking back to the old scams such as "a cigar box", invent a new scam name for a book. Any type of book, any dyable hue, is allowed.

    Prizes:
    1st place - 10m
    2nd place - 5m
    honorable mention - 1m

    Voting will end at 6 pm EST on Friday Dec 12. You can pick up to 3 entries to vote for. I'll add up all the votes; any ties will be decided by me.

    The entries!

    All entries can also be seen in the bright blue gift box just inside the Traders' Auction House.

    We ended up with a tie for "Fest Staff Grand Prize Favorite":
    [​IMG] A Moldy Sandwich
    [​IMG] Box Of Crayons
    ...both by 4gregu.

    Congrats @Smoot and @4gregu! ICQ me to claim your prizes.

    Thanks :) I was surprised to see the other one didn't get more attention, but I'm glad this one went over well. In all honesty, the hardest part was not entering myself. I had my "Royal Mousetrap" all ready to go! I hope this one continues with future fests; it takes so little effort to enter, yet just about every entry had me laughing. I swear, that Rubble book even looks like something I would easily fall for.
