We sat with the tension of an Australian entertainer looking forward to the morning’s Daily Mail until late Wednesday night as we awaited the results of the pwnie.com awards. We nursed our coco/vodka/champagne (Jav/Andrew/Thom( respectively) as the news trickled in.
We had a few key people on the scene, recounting the experience to us.
Given the competition, we had the champagne on ice, the shisha warmed, and the alarms set (we were after all operating in the much more civilised Greenwich Meantime).
Given the timezone differences though, we went to bed, and set our Google Alerts for the impending winning announcement.
We awoke to the news that we hadn’t won. Unfortunately our beautifully coloured, tempo’ed, written and choreographed song didn’t tweak the judges auditory senses as much as the dulcet tones of @0xabad1dea with a beautifully timed Christmassy SSL thematically themed jingle.
We are gutted, but happy for the ultimate winner (of course).
Congratulations @0xabad1dea / Melissa, you were a worthy opponent.
Following on from last weeks post, our legal team flagged this message to us. As such we are once again forced to reissue our statement that the actions of these individuals does not represent the views or opinions of Host Unknown.
Stay tuned for their full report on their time in Amsterdam, because they really do have some explaining to do.
Last week we announced an impromptu caption for a picture taken of our three presenters during one of their planning sessions. We were inundated with entries, and not surprising since the prize is an exclusive Host Unknown gift!
And now to announce our winner. Our heartiest congratulations go to @InfosecGeekLady, with the following:
We will be sending your prize out very soon @InfosecGeekLady, we hope you like it!
Here is a selection of the very best of the other captions submitted, and thank you to everybody who took part and kept the boys feeling loved.
