First off, I just want to say that I leaned most heavily towards entries that followed the general idea of playing on a traditional picket sign or general political rallying slogan. (Sometimes more common on a t-shirt or bumper sticker or button.) This is the original idea behind these pieces, so that's where my heart remains. Aside from that, filling gaps I didn't already hit and humor were big factors. So now...the winners: I chose Nan Emmet of Spirited Earth Studios, for this slogan: "More Gingerbread, Less Fruitcake"
classic with "We're Fat, We're Jolly, Get used to it!"
Merlyn's entry was slightly different, but I couldn't believe I missed hot buttered rum on a sign! My parents made this for many a party when I was a kid, and even though it doesn't sound that appealing for my tastes, it remains a Christmas classic in my mind.
And finally, I chose three slogans from Janet, who helped get the ball rolling on my new picketing Rabbis!
