14 post and the expected Airforums bickering and in fighting has already started. I need to go camping and apparently I am not the only one.

Time to get back to the basics
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...xlUjchAC-VsgoQ

There is a simple answer here. Nobody is running for president, this is not the Nobel Prize. The prime directive is have FUN. Nobody is gong to like every photo, especially me. The only "rule" that is clear is the last month's winner decides the winner on his/ her own discretion.

Aside from the winner's "rules", the only reason I can see for the "own the rights" to a photo is the teeny tiny chance someone else who does "own the rights" gets his/her elbows chafed and calls the photo police.

Rules Clarification

Well, this contentiousness was not what I was hoping for, so let me clarify. The photo that will win, if that is what you would like to do, is a photo, (not a graphic) that you took, that has not been edited (other than removing red eye, cropping, etc), that is funny. The example I gave was exactly what I am looking for. (Santa SPLAT - Dec 2013). I think we have driven off into the ditch; let's see if we can get back on course. I know it isn't easy, but you can do it!

Thanks Mellinkat for the clarification. Rest assured that I have no desire to win the contest. I'd have to start the next one and feel obligated to monitor it. I'd have to deal with the self appointed thread police as well as clowns like me.
No thanks, just in it for the laughs.
Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for trying to bring some humor to the site!

I'll drink to that.

The photo I submitted above does not have any part of an Airstream in it. I did not even expect it to be judged as meeting requirements. It was posted more as a comment than a contest entry.

Melinski, It will never cease to amaze me what people choose to argue about. Myself, not excluded. I think it must be a collorary of Murphy's Law what you put out there with the good intention that it could not possibly provoke any contention will have inversely proportional results..

Are we having fun yet?

Uhm - here's one that makes me laugh. I took the pic. It's inside my trailer. I'm always tickled at how dedicated she is to sleeping. She's my hero for that reason alone, among many others....

SteveSueMac - Love it. That face is priceless. Took me a few minutes to notice the smile. Very cute. Thanks for getting us back on track.

Niche,

Nothing beats the next generation enjoying the Airstream... Thanks.

Mellinkat,

I'll post the following photo, just for fun. I'll disqualify it from the contest, because I posted it a few of years ago on the Airstreams in the Snow thread. I still think it's funny in a "double dog dare" kinda way and it immediately came to mind, when I read the theme.

Happy Holidays!

Roy

IMHO just because a photo was previously entered in a contest is no reason to disqualify an entry in a new contest. If you are fraught with pangs of guilt you can send me the big prize. What does the rest of the peanut gallery think?

I didn't take this, and it isn't Lily, but it looks just like her...except her paws would be crossed.
