Originally this contest was supposed to go down a couple of months ago. We planned on working with the creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dan Berger, to deliver this contest. It was just about ready to debut on MiddleEasy and then our buddy Dan told us that he sold the rights to Nickolodeon. Bummer. Now we had to negotiate with the lawyers of Viacom to use their newly acquired intellectual property for a joint MiddleEasy/Jaco Clothing/TMNT contest. After months of deliberation, it just didn’t work out. They couldn’t quite understand the contest and we just couldn’t find a way to coherently explain it to them. In fact, this entire contest was created by MiddleEasy interviewer, D**k Grayson, when he woke up on someone’s sofa in Manhattan at 11am in the morning (dude doesn’t even live in New York). D**k told me it was the first thing he thought of that morning and it probably will go down as the greatest contest idea this site will ever pull off. Whenever great ideas emerge in this world, scientists can generally trace the origins back to Jaco Clothing. These are the same guys who make shirts out of bamboo. That’s like borderline Klingon technology. They also signed Lyoto Machida, Brandon Vera, Big Nog, Rashad Evans, Anthony Njokuani and Jeff Monson to their roster. That’s not a list people. That’s a list of X-men who we can rely on to save the world if aliens ever invaded the planet.
Now we have a new contest and you can win loads of Jaco gear. I’ve tried rewording the concept and everytime it loses it’s meaning. The only way I can fully explain this contest is copy/paste the exact email I received from D**k Grayson when he woke up on someone’s sofa in the middle of Manhattan at 11am.
You know how in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Shredder tried to manipulate animals and mutate them into thugs to be able to combat this Turtles, but he always tends to screw up.
You have a canister of mutagen. Choose 4 fighters and 4 animals to mutate into the ultimate team of thugs to combat the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Name the experiment and assign a turtle to combat each of the newly created mutants.
There you have it. Here are the prize packages we will be giving away.
Rules: In order to win, you must be registered on MiddleEasy.com. It’s free, easy and will automatically boost your karma for today (guaranteed). All entries must be posted as a comment on this page. You know, the page that you’re on right now. Here is an example of an acceptable entry:
If I had a canister of mutagen, I would combine:
Urijah Faber with a Mongoose and assign him to fight Donatello
Georges St. Pierre with a Pot-Belly Pig and assign him to fight Raphael
Krazy Horse with a…Horse and assign him to fight Leonardo
Shinya Aoki with a Chihuahua and assign him to fight Michelangelo
My team would be called ‘Gwar 2.0‘
See, that wasn’t even creative. I’m sure you guys can do astronomically better than that. It’s as simple as that folks. You choose four MMA fighters to be combined with four animals and assign a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle that each of your creations will fight and you must name your team. Rule of thumb: Don’t be racist, hateful…just don’t be an [expletive]. For extra bonus points, name each of your newly created mutants.
This contest will end January 31st at 11:59pm PT. You can enter as many times as you want. Have fun with your entries and most importantly…have fun with mutagen.
