[contests] Endurance caption contest voting poll

Art by Dan Dos Santos

Time for another caption contest voting poll, to celebrate the availability of the Endurance ARCs. I declared a caption contest on the following photo:

The usual comment madness ensued: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

I have now embedded the comments into a voting poll. Unfortunately, some of the longer witticisms are truncated by the poll code. Usual rules apply. Prize after the voting poll will be an inscribed copy of the Green trade paperback and the Endurance ARC. Additional prizes may be awarded at the judge’s discretion.
