That's right, this week there's a second place winner taking the top image spot. Why? For one, sciteach's excellent Driving Miss Daisy riff demonstrates why he took the top spot in last week's contest. And then there's the fact that I couldn't in good conscience leave the real winner's image enlarged at the top of the site for an entire evening.

Damn you, Brandon0151. With 178 stars and so many horribly dirty feels, your casting couch session between Peach and Luigi wins the day. Had it been graphic I might have disqualified it, but everyone's clothes are on. Well, except for Yoshi, and we can't see his hands either, you sick bastards.

If you don't understand the couch reference, then good for you. Just trust me. You are a rare and special person. Let's check out the rest of this week's top entries!

Brandon0151 — for showing us how many people know exactly what this couch represents.

If you didn't make the cut, either someone else did your idea better, I ran out of time picking winners, or you did not adhere to the 636 pixel width minimum rule, now strictly enforced. With so many amazing entries, I gotta trim it down somehow.
