Samuel L. Jackson is the host of this year's Video Game Awards, and even though the man has hosted it three times before, for some reason this glassy expression communicates everything I expect from a movie star handing out this particular trophy.

So, we handed the publicity stills to you folks to see if you could come up with something a little more exciting for him to hold. And y'all sure did, with 15 finalists, including overall No. 1 and repeat all-star uscg_pa, above.

arniejolt (3) has Nick Fury contemplating the fate of Iron Man. ykc (15) offers a classic subject swap. I don't know what sciteach (12) was going for, but it's an adult diaper joke, so I'll allow it. Toilet humor also gets SKtwentysix (13) in the roundup.

kaploy9 (7) is ... well I have no idea what the hell this is, but President Obama impersonating McKayla Moroney cropped up in a few submissions like iconoclast24's (6) (plus McKayla imitating McKayla in Angryrider's (2) work), so feel free to use his face going forward. Considering who's behind the VGA's I knew someone would go there, and boy did bovURVN (4) do it.

Nathalie (10) came through with probably the best subject swap. dsa88's (5) comes with the caption: "What he's really thinking." And though we had a ton of Pulp Fiction references, my favorite was uscg_pa's (14), good for overall No. 1

Thanks again to everyone who entered. We'll have a new contest for you tomorrow.

Thanks for the win! Honestly I was stumped with this week's shop contest until I came across the "Learn English" graphic, and low and behold it just fit perfectly. Thanks again all and see you tomorrow.
