    Great job to everyone who participated. It is great to see everyone have a little fun on here, especially this time of year. I had to laugh out loud when I saw design #9, there is a shop right here in my town that is named Xtreme ------, and they seriously have Old English for the Xtreme and Brush Script for the second word of their name. On top of that their new sign is black with red letters!!! It just blows me away at what some people really think looks good. Unbelievable, we are having this design-off poking fun of this type of work and some people are out there paying for it!!! Merry Christmas everybody at Signs 101.

    I loled a lot at EXTREEEEM GRAFIXXXXX ... there are so many wannabes out there who abuse that same barbed wire and tribal tattoo crowd with junk like that. For sheer home basement quality and that microsoft word look I loved "seedy fonts" with impact super demi black.

    I just really really hope the Extreeem Grapixxxx designer is making fun of designs. If not... boy are we gonna feel like crap.

    You mean that's not how you spell it? Yeah thats my handy work. I kinda got carried away with my "turd" and didn't really care to polish it. I can't believe anyone voted for it though.

    The next contest should be who can make the best design using only microsoft word wordart.

    well, I finally went with my first intention... #5 is too cool to pass up! Lots of good stuff, but that one looked like a winner. Looks like my opinion is in good company too!

    WOW... even my quickie garnished a couple votes... amazing :)

    hmmm... I was wondering about that Ken... I think it is someone inspired by Jill though... it's got a Jillbeans vibe for sure, but I'm not sure it is her style of sign design... more like a sign about her style of forum presence?

    I'm thinking Weaselboogie maybe?

    Naaa, #11

    Great work here everyone, good to get a laugh out of these. As mentioned, there is a lot of incredible talent showing through these disasters!!!

    Well, it's a new week, so it's time for a bump. I'm going to let this thing go for a day or two more to let anyone who missed it have a chance to vote, since this thing happened over the holiday season.

    Pat suggested earlier we we take the top 3 or 5 and re-vote, but I'm excited to move on to the next contest and I'm not sure if it is necessary. Does anyone object to that?

    To keep this post alive for a few more days, if people want to take this time to guess whose is whose that could be pretty interesting.

    I'm not #5. I took my entry too seriously. I did vote for #11. It was a hard choice to make!
