(updated 10 Nov 03)

This is our last installment of DeFUNitions for a while...please bear with me while I lengthily introduce our new contest.

Well, we have all read those "You might be a redneck if...." Jeff Foxworthy lists, and if you remember Johnny Carson, you undoubtedly remember the "It was so cold today..." piece in his monologue periodically. Well, we've decided to use the "You might be a ....." and a variation of the other in our "You know it's.....when...." contest. So we will probably alternate these two, as I can't see doing one exclusively...at least not for the time being. Maybe we will drop one, but for now, that's the plan for the next three or so months this time around.

Now, we don't have a name for this double-up contest, so we would appreciate it if you could help us out. If we choose your contest name, we will give you 25 RA, and, what the heck, we'll even throw in an origami for your troubles. Please send both your entries to the contest and your proposed contest names via this link. Hopefully you will enjoy this contest...I really hate to see DeFUNitions go, but it had a long run, and will come back one day.
