The strange Michael McDonald Fight Stick that sold on eBay (for $137.50!) provided the grist for our latest 'Shop Contest, which had more than 400 entries! Somehow I had to narrow this down to 20 finalists, but I did. They're inside, including No. 1 winner pnkero, who might be the first 'Shopper to go from cornfield to winner in the same contest.

Getting started, other famous McDonalds were a common theme. GR1M RACER (5) gives us Norm, spongeboy1985 (16) provides Ronald. Snufkin (15) gives us another Mac altogether.

James Docherty (6) flips the script. I also liked his comment: "I keep forgettin' — I have a fight stick on my head (baby)." PeterBoffemmyer (11) shows us this stick isn't really brilliant design until Apple blesses it. Nude_Eskimo (10) provides us with a useful button.

Thanks to toolsoldier (18) we have that song stuck in our heads now. Squizzy (17) and ArtfulShrapnel (2) both supplied biting commentary on their games (Arma II and Metal Gear Solid, respectively).

Overall winners? Bet@'s (3) official QTE controller for Asura's Wrath was simple, to-the-point, and brilliant. TuxedoFox (20) made me hurt myself laughing. PrnceOfPwng (13) took the whole nipple joke to the next level.

But the overall winner is the first submission, actually, from pnkero (15). I cornfielded him because the image upload failed and I thought he making an OT remark about his cat. Then I saw that and laughed so hard I shot a Froot Loop out my nostril. That, plus his inspiring rags-to-riches tale, makes pnkero a worthy overall winner.

Thanks again everyone, we'll have another contest ready to go tomorrow.
