Contest Poll: Primal Post-Its

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.

My Top-10 Favorite Primal Post-Its

Notable Mentions

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Bookmarked! LOL

  2. Woohoo! Thanks for giving my bar belle (I mean my daughter) and spotter honorable mention. :) Toddlers are also great for swinging around like a kettlebell.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  11. These were awesome! I’m putting a link in my blog to these, they get their messages across more pointedly than most of the ads out there! Great job all you Groks & Grokettes!(that one was cute btw). :-)
