Suck rules!

What can I say? I grew up in Iowa among stoic, working class people. Grant Wood is my idol, American Gothic

I had meant to enter the sucker in the Langdon birthday challenge but was too late for that one.

I never got higher than a 7 in this challenge, and this was one of my 7s. I think it's a good, frank, candid portrait and a funny, clever title.

Thanks Sandy, it's times like this when I remember why I don't do self-portraits.

Mary, you truly did pull one off - the top 10 AND brown all in one shot? That is AWESOME! A feat truly worthy of our great team.

You did it! Top 10 AND the brown ribbon in one shot - surely a never-before-performed feat. :)

Funny photo! I like the idea. The lighting is a bit blown out on the right though.

10 from me....lucky you to get your photo in in time, I had mine taken and ready to submit when they pulled it.

Well, it has just been suggested by SC that if I give all photos a score of 10 (which I have done), then the scores will not count. So rather than risk that, I will have to adjust my score on this photo, sorry, you can blame SC if you like.

A 10 for speed !
April 1st can be such a kick in the kister !!!
BTW: All other entries are getting the same...EEK
