Contest: Grokpose for Bacon

The Prize:

Bacon. It’s meat candy. It’s the real part of a complete breakfast. What’s better than bacon? Six months of bacon. Bacon Freak [7] is a bacon hub, they have bacon wallets [8] and bacon soap [9], bacon shirts [10], and bacon gifts [11]. And today they’re offering the contest winner a six month membership to their bacon of the month club [12]. That’s $250 worth of Cajun bacon, jalapeno bacon, sun dried tomato bacon, vanilla bourbon bacon, and an assortment of other blue ribbon varieties. And for the true bacon lovers out there, get all your bacon news at Bacon Today [13], and form a bacon meet-up at BaconEvents.com [14].

But Grok can’t live on bacon alone…

To go along with the theme of today’s contest, we’re also throwing in a spear. Cold Steel [15] gave us three Assegai spears [16], and today we’re giving away the last one. I’ve received a few questions about these spears, so I’ll clarify: Yes, they are real. They aren’t delicate decorations for your mantle. They are weapons used for hunting. Cold Steel sent me a demo video that contained roughly 30 minutes of people throwing these spears through wood, car hoods, Porta-Potties, and large chunks of meat. Win one and you can hunt your own bacon.

The Contest:

Pose like Grok. Take a photo of it. You know Grok, right? Here he is…

Pose like that. Whether in mid air, on the ground, hanging from the underside of a stairwell, or lying on the dirt. If you’re body roughly matches the positioning of Grok, you’re qualified. If you’ve got a spear, awesome. If you have some other representation of a spear, that’s fine too. If you’ve got an “air spear,” that’s acceptable as well. Creativity is entirely allowed. Once you’ve figured out how to do it, get someone to take a picture of you in your Grokpose, and email it to me [17].

IMPORTANT: You must include “Grokpose Submission” in the subject heading of your email or your entry won’t count.

The Deadline:

Sept 23, midnight PST. You’ve got one week.
