Hello and welcome to the inaugural post of MentalMagma.com. This site is for creative people and for people who enjoy the output of creative minds. Mental Magma will host inventive, original, and sometimes bizarre contests at least once a week. The winners (as determined by you, the users) will receive varying cash and prizes. Please read the About Us link above for more general information on this website and its future.
So, let’s get to contest #1: Mischievous Time Traveler. Your first challenge is to imagine you are in possession of a fully-functional time machine. You are charged with the duty of traveling back in time to publicly depants* someone. Nevermind why, you just need to pick a time and a person.
The winner of this contest will be the person who submits the most interesting, compelling, and creative answer. You need to specify the person whose drawers you’d expose and where/when you’d do it. If you like, you can include your rationale and any effects on history your deed would likely have.
For example, you could say that you’d time travel to Superbowl XXXVIII, pants Justin Timberlake (simultaneously with the other wardrobe malfunction) and thus exacerbate the most lascivious event in American history.
You can leave your contest entries by leaving comments on this blog post (click here or on the word contest entries below). Please note that although you don’t have to register to leave comments, you do need to leave a valid email address when filling out your comment so we can contact you if you win, but worry not, we won’t spam you. Also, feel free to comment on other people’s answers. On Friday, the MM staff will choose 5 of the best and most popular answers and put them in a poll for everyone to vote on a winner. On Sunday we’ll announce the entry with the most votes and the author will win this week’s prize: a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.com. The whole process starts over next Monday when we reveal contest #2. I can’t wait.
*depants: to remove the trousers from someone, often by force or surprise (to be fair to both sexes, let’s also include deskirting in our definition)
Announcement: This contest is closed. Feel free to continue to leave your time-traveling shenanigans here, but you’ll be doing so strictly for our edification. Why don’t you check out the latest update or contest?
