I expected this was yours, but if I post a guess in my comment, then I am wrong!

I love the sarcasm here, but I am not sure if I need to give you a good vote for the humor, or a 1 to help with the brownie you may be trying for. Problem I have found it that if you really want the brown, you have to avoid making a statement that people will appreciate. They will give you good votes for that.

Wouldn't it be funny if a dozen people clicked the "rules violation" button on this one for preexisting artwork? No, I didn't think it would be.

Why am a certain this is from a someone recently DQ'd under the existing artwork rule?

Giving this a late bump up, because I really like the humor in it, as well as one of my arguably coveted shoehorn awards for the humor.

Not sure about the point of including the printed statement, it turns this into a photo of printouts, rather than a creative photo of the ribbons.

hmmm that knife look like a pic of a pic to me and I think you are trying to fool me into thinking I'm looking at a table by using a poster of wood as your backdrop but the pic in the foreground is clearly real so good work

Ehh, OK, I think you get the idea across. Unfortunately it doesn't make for the best shot. I get the idea at humour (I think), but just sounds more like an angry rebellion to me.

This doesn't feel like a serious attempt at an interesting image. I do commend you oun using the DPC red, yellow and blue ribbons.
