Our judges are busy picking a worthy winner and some runner ups out of these 55 funny and creative finalists. We said we’d announce the results by the 10th but to give the judges enough time we’re aiming for the 13th cause we’re nice like that.

This Week’s Contest: Brainypics About Brainypics

Hey guys! Thanks for all of the submissions to last week’s “Your Photos” Brainypics contest. I know it was tougher than usual because you had to take or dig up photos you’d taken before and then turn it into a Brainypic flashcard, but the turnout will still great. We basically matched last week’s record best of 540 pics. :]

This week’s contest: Brainypics About Brainypics. We got this idea from some really funny users. Basically, you create Brainypics with sentences that talk about the Brainyflix.com website, refer to other Brainypics, mention you as the creator of the Brainypic, etc.

Not quite sure what we mean? Check out these examples:

This puppy is full of wrath because the people on Brainyflix won’t vote for his Brainypics.

wrath (n): vengeful anger, punishment

The almighty Gladiator Kitty shall assail all those who oppose his reentry into Brainyflix! Dare you incur his wrath?

assail (v): to attack

"Your belligerent ways shall come to end, Gladiator Kitty!" yells the evil monkey.

Belligerent (adj): Warlike; given to waging war

Good luck, guys, and get started —>>> Brainyflix

Week 6 Brainypics Contest: Imaginary Conversations

Say what?

For week 6, we are asking for Brainypics where your sentence is what somebody is saying in an imaginary conversation that is happening in the picture.  Just as you get to pick the word, picture and sentence, you get to come up with the conversation, too. The sillier, the better, of course. :]

A little confused?  Here are some examples I came up with to help you in your quest for iTunes and those dolla dolla billz.

using VEHEMENTLY in a sentence

The youngster screamed at his pencil VEHEMENTLY, "Write! Write like you've never written before!!!"

VEHEMENTLY – (adv) marked by intense force or emotion
