This event is over.

So you're going along with your normal, pirateless routine when all of sudden, you see something that makes you think of Puzzle Pirates, or someone in the Puzzle Pirates community.  Share it!  Take a picture of it, or recreate it with your amazing drawing skills.

As I have a feeling that this is going to suck really hard, and that every entry will be the person's Pirates of the Caribbean DVD, I'm not going to set an end date quite yet.  As an extra precaution, posting a picture of your Pirates of the Caribbean DVD will get you disqualified from this contest.  (VHS gets you a cookie.)

Cut-off time for entries is 11:59pm eastern time on Sunday, September 10.

Because I am completely unbiased, and just an all-around outstanding individual, I solely will be doing the judging.

As for prizes, they won’t be spectacular, and may vary depending on the popularity of this contest.  Let's start at...
     First place:  10,000 pieces of eight on Midnight or Cobalt
     Second, Third place:  ~5,000 pieces of eight on Midnight or Cobalt

Try to be creative.  As a general rule, the more subtle the entry is the better.  I'll judge the creativity of the entry over the quality of the picture or drawing.  You're welcome to add a title or a short description if you wish.  But really, I don't care as long as I "get it."

Example:


Beat that, punks.

I think you fail to see the point.  So, here.  That's a game where you get all those pieces, and you try to fit them into that square thing.  I was playing with it, And ended up with the orange P piece and the funky hole (the black area) that happens to be a carp piece.  Hense, I didn't "win" the game, but it did remind me of carp, just because of the P-shape-trying-to-fit-into-funky-shape thing. So, it goes along with my theme.  But, I guess it wasn't as obvious.

You also weren't the first person to point that out. :p

Okay, so I didn't actually take this, and it's not quite a picture, either, but I am winning!

I don't have a picture, and it's about as obvious as PotC, but the Capital One commercials usually get me.

I think I'll open the rules to allow finding and/or photoshopping pictures that aren't yours (as I did in my third entry), because physically taking pictures is a bit much.  Now you can just Google Image Search for that hoagie!  Maybe that will make people a bit more willing to enter.  Maybe?

How about the other way around...

Maybe it is just my dirty mind, but whenever I get a "Nice set" when Carping I think of pink Floyd 1973 album "A Nice Pair"

Or at least the cover anyway...

I remember it being very titillating being a 7 YO browsing my father's LP collection.
