Contest Poll: Primal Post-Its

By Mark Sisson

On August 10 I announced the Primal Post-Its contest. I imagined a few of the creative types would submit some Photoshop creations, and a handful of others would go out into the field to poke fun at CW. Instead I received nearly 500 submissions! Some of the entries are downright hilarious. Others do a great job of defining in a humorous way elements of the Primal lifestyle. While still others shed light on the pervasive misinformation we are plagued with in modern society.

Thanks to everyone for submitting your Primal Post-Its. Due to the sheer number of entries I haven’t managed to publish each and every one of them. Instead I’ve picked, what are in my opinion, the cream of the crop. It’s up to you to decide which of my top-10 favorites wins this contest. I’ve also included a long list of honorable mentions.

This poll only goes until 8 am (PST) tomorrow, so place your vote now! Click “Keep Reading” below to view the Primal Post-Its.

Haha. Some great pics. I think my fave is the “Irony?” post it with the escalator going into the gym. I’ve seen this pic on another blog before. Surely it can’t be a real gym? It beggars belief.

Wow, thanks for including me as a finalist! I loved looking at the others… my favorites are the ones that use actual post-its though. I LOVE the “coach” one with the dog.
