Last week, Zack asked everyone to “spread the horror of Poke Ball guy.” He’ll be back next week, but he graciously asked me to stand in as judge for this weekend’s shop contest. I got to say, it was hard as there’s so many great entries. Most of them made me burst into involuntary laughter. That Poke Ball guy sure gets around.

Our winning image this week was created by Suchamorda who creates a merging of two pop culture icons to form the ultimate Poke Sonic.

As there were so many great selections, I’d suggest revisiting Zack’s original post and seeing all the entries. Here are ten I randomly picked as again, they were all so good.
