Yes, April 14-15, 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. On that fateful night in 1912, the great White Star ocean liner struck an iceberg and sank, taking 1,517 crew and passengers down with her. Only 710 people survived the loss of the world′s greatest metaphor. So what better way to celebrate than to have a photo contest. The object of which is to fill in the blank with the most comical word or phrase. The big prize you are competing for is a $20 e-gift card from Amazon.com!

The set-up is simple. Since Barack Obama is the world′s most intelligent man ever born, the greatest at everything he tries, then it is only fitting that he become part of the Titanic folklore. You may recall how several weeks ago, in response to Newt Gingrich attacking the Obama administration on their failed energy policy and rising gasoline prices, Obama went on the defensive. He raised the issue of how all of our energy problems could be solved. ″If we could make more fuel out of algae, we′d be doing alright.″

This has sent my mind to working. What other things could Obama make from algae that would improve our lot in life? Just think of the possibilities! In my example above, Obama considers how much better off humanity would be if we could make more Democrat voters out of algae. Certainly this would be preferable to the usual Chicago method of having the dead vote two or three times!

So here is your big chance! You have been wanting a photo contest and now you have one. Post your suggestion to filling in the blank in the Comment Section. A winner will be chosen by me. Perhaps you intend to use this opportunity just to be purely funny? Or, you may, in keeping with our RMS Titanic 100th anniversary theme, come up with something useful from algae for the folks of the White Star ocean liner? Whatever the case, the winner will receive, via email, a $20 Amazon.com gift card. So join in the fun and post as many suggestions as you wish. You will have until 5pm EDT on Monday, April 16, to make your entries. I will then announce a winner on Tuesday morning, and which time I will need the winner′s email address. So good luck and happy posting!
