Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Vice President of Legal Affairs

Illustration for article titled Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Vice President of Legal Affairs

For timeliness sake and humor value, nothing beats Sony suing its own fake vice president of smarm, Kevin Butler. Details are somewhat sparse and it sounds like the two did try to resolve their differences, but now this sucker appears to be headed for a courtroom. Let's provide a sneak preview.


There are tons of exploitable images of Kevin Butler, and tons of exploitable images of courtrooms, and we have a well established lineup of memes and callbacks here, so you're on your own for how you want to set this up. But if we're going to get eleventy-million Phoenix Wright entries, I want to see at least one of KB on the stand, being questioned by Mr. Bad Dudes, with Asshole Dog as the judge.

Conversely, you could imagine a new Vice President of Everything (or some way to represent Vice President of Nothing.) OK, I'm directing the traffic too much here. This is in your hands now, so go to it.

Remember, you have to post submissions in the new forum for the Kotaku 'Shop Contest. I know it's not as fun as seeing everyone's creations underneath this post, but this way automatically displays them in chronological order, which everyone seems to prefer.

Because of this, comments are disabled in this post to avoid confusion. You must visit the 'Shop Contest Forum to participate or to see this week's subissions. After you create your 'Shop, you'll need to post it there. Here are the rest of the guidelines for doing so.

1. Go to the 'Shop Contest Forum
2. Click "Add Image" in the upper right above the comment window.
3. Click "Upload an Image Instead." Then click the "Choose File" button. Browse your desktop, find the image, and click "open."
4. If you prefer, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then click "Add image" in the upper right above the comment window. Paste the image URL into the field that says "Image URL."
5. You can add editorial commentary if you want, but then just hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, paste the image URL as a comment.
6. This is important: Keep your image size under 1 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels.


All set? Great. Now, Gentlemen, start your 'shopping!
