PAX Prime Street Banner Suggestion Contest Thread

edited July 2015 in PAX West
So we are getting ready to have the street banners made for PAX Prime and decided to open it up to you all and see what good banner text ideas you can come up with. These are the banners that hang on the light posts outside the convention center. They say things like "Welcome Home" and "The reason your IT guy is 'out sick'". We only have a short time until we need to get these made, so we will be closing submissions in 2 weeks on July 20th.


We will only be selecting the best one or two ideas from you this year, so make them good. We'll be keeping the best from previous years.

So if you have a suggestion for a clever or funny PAX street banner, please put it in this thread, and if we end up using it we'll contact you and give you a prize of some sort. Likely PAX passes or some PAX merch, your choice. Plus your words will be hung on the street for all to see and marvel at.
