They may not have had the chops to secure a top three showing in the Team Fortress 2 Soldier Vs. Demo propaganda challenge, but the contest's runners-up are unquestionably a credit to team.
Valve has picked through the 11,000 submissions—another possible reason Half-Life 2: Episode Three is running late!—and highlighted some of the best of the not quite the best, many of which are suitable for downloading, printing, framing or complaining on the artist's behalf for not actually winning.
Favorites? Mine might be Agent Melon's WWII inspired "Destroy This Mad Brute."
