Riptide Rips Off Miami Herald's Ripoff of Palm Beach Post's "Name the Marlins Home Run Thing" Contest

marlins200.jpg
Yesterday, Palm Beach Post writer Dave George filed a column entitled, "Help us find a proper name for the outrageous home-run contraption at Marlins Park," in which he asked readers to submit nicknames for that thing in the Marlins stadium. Well, what do you know, today the Miami Herald announced a "Name that thing!" contest to pick nicknames for the sculpture. In this spirit of originality Riptide would now like to host its very own "name the sculpture thing" contest. Ours, however, is just a little bit different.

The Herald's contest of course seems to be designed to also collect a lot of demographic and contact information from you, probably for their own nefarious marketing purposes.

The Herald's contest also states that, "Any vulgar or obscene names will be disqualified."

To differentiate our contest, we've decided that only vulgar or obscene names are allowed. This is Miami after all.

Post your entries in the comment section. The winner will get the satisfaction of knowing he or she is better than whoever wins the Herald contest, and the pleasure of seeing your term used in future Riptide articles. We'll announce the top 5 on Friday, and then put them up for a public vote. 

Start thinking dirty!

It's flashy, loud, expensive, but ultimately does nothing. Getting ripped off South-Florida style has a new term: We just got "Marlin-rolled!"

It doesn't actually count homeruns, it's just one more way we could waste your tax dollars. Thank you Mayor Carlos Alvarez!

How's this title for the thing: "Kyle spends an awful lot of time knocking the Herald, a habit that stinks of envy since he's stuck at a low-pay weekly newspaper."

Or this: "Kyle is a loser and should get a life and stop trying to generate controversy over common media traditions."

Or maybe this: "If Kyle isn't purposely making much ado about nothing, why doesn't he call it ripping off when one TV station breaks a story, and the others follow? I mean, if the other stations only report the story after it was breaking news on the first station, isn't that a rip off? Of course not, in the real world. But in Kyle's world of faux controversies and elementary school putdowns of news organizations that rejected him, apparently that logic makes sense."

Any one of those "titles" sounds great to me!

I'm sure Kyle will never live down being slagged by some 23 year old intern at the Herald.

"The Guy Who Designed This Is Still More Talented Than The People Running The Herald". Not vulgar enough? I can always sprinkle a couple of fucks around. For example, "people" could become "fucktards".
