Last week I asked Kotaku's image manipulation army to, whatever they did, not advertise the game Destiny, just like Microsoft didn't. I have never seen a group of people not advertise this much in my entire life.
Thanks to a combination of factors too complicated for mere mortals to comprehend (how do people feel about corpse ass?), this week's winner is the mighty curugon, who completely nailed the spirit of Microsoft not advertising something with his tasty-looking X Bones.
Of course the real winner is the one that gets argued about the most in the comments, so check out this week's brilliant finalists below, and beware of corpse ass.
