posted by Jason Boyett

Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption in yesterday’s contest. The winner is Michael Miller… Mr. Jobs’ Macworld Expo keynote did not address questions concerning apparent liver transplant complications. ———— …because that’s just funny. It hits all the right technological, […]

Giant Baby Caption Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s been an interesting couple of days here at the blog with some excellent (and mostly civil) discussion. I appreciate that. But now it’s time to lighten things up a bit with a caption contest. In the comments, submit your […]

Thanks to all of you who submitted a caption in yesterday’s caption contest. There were some great ones, which made choosing my favorite a fairly difficult task. A handful of honorable mentions. At one point or another yesterday, I was […]

Caption Contest: Out of the Frying Pan…

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s time for a caption contest. Your job is to write the best caption for the photo below. I’ll choose a winner tomorrow morning at 9 am CT. The caption need not have anything to do with the actual, real-life […]

Contest: Matter, Antimatter & Metaphor

It’s contest time. On Tuesday, a bunch of physicists at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced the results of a particle accelerator experiment they’ve been doing over the last eight years. “Many of us felt goose bumps […]

I returned last night from a great week in New York City where I had the privilege of speaking to the communities at Apostles Church (Tuesday) and Marble Collegiate (Wednesday) about faith, doubt, and living with both. Thanks to the […]

Winner! 5-Sentence Scary Story (Ash)

posted by Jason Boyett

Yikes. These scary contests are getting more and more disturbing every time. Splattered brain matter, rotting body cavities, burning corpses, hemorrhoid cream…I’m going to have to put a parental advisory on these things. Still: Well done. Some great stuff here. […]

Five-Sentence Scary Story Contest: Ash

As promised, it’s time for yet another five-sentence scary story contest. This time, you have an entire weekend to submit your story in the comments. For inspiration, here are the links to the previous 5-sentence contests:• The one with snow• […]

Mad Libs Contest Winner!

posted by Jason Boyett

Thanks to everyone who entered yesterday’s fill-in-the-blank Mad Libs contest using a line from O Me of Little Faith. I discovered two things from the contest: 1) Creativity, among readers of this blog, is apparently a license to describe the […]

O Me of Little Faith Mad Libs

So I have a new contest idea. While reading for my audiobook last week, I was pleasantly re-introduced to one of my favorite sentences from the upcoming book. I smiled when I read it, and I remembered that one of […]

Turtles All the Way Down

posted by Jason Boyett

In Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time, the famous physicist opens with a story about a prominent scientist (probably Bertrand Russell) who gave a public astronomy lecture way back in the day. He explained how the earth moved around […]

What’s Up with the Turtles?

For those of you who are interested in such things, here’s the back cover copy for O Me of Little Faith: ————- True Confessions I am a Christian. I have been a Christian for most of my life. But there […]

Winner! 5-Sentence Scary Story (with Snow)

posted by Jason Boyett

You people are super creepy. I’ve done the scary story contest before, but last time around, the stories were not nearly as disturbing as yesterday’s entries. Maybe it’s the Fargo-esque quality of the deep snow. Maybe it’s the clautrophobic feel […]

Five-Sentence Scary Story Contest: Snow

posted by Jason Boyett

The conversation since Monday has been excellent, I think. Thanks to those of you who contributed, both from the religious and non-religious sides. Thanks also for keeping it civil. But it’s been a heavy sort of conversation, all this existence-of-God […]

Like a Torpedo with Gills: Contest Winner

posted by Jason Boyett

To all of you who submitted an entry in yesterday’s Five-Sentence Story Contest: Well done. We received a great collection of entries, almost all of which followed the rules (which included setting a suspenseful tone, containing the phrase “torpedo with […]

5-Sentence Story Contest, with Shark

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s been too long since our last contest — 5-sentence story or otherwise — so let’s do another one. The winner gets a signed copy of his or her choice of my three new Pocket Guides (Sainthood, Afterlife, or the […]

Release Week Caption Contest Winner(s)

posted by Jason Boyett

So I have a small problem. There were fewer entries yesterday than I’d hoped — I’m pretty sure the stringent caption rules had something to do with this — but those who entered did an excellent job. However, my favorite […]

Release Week Caption Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

In honor of Pocket Guide release week, it’s time for another fun caption contest. The winner gets a free copy of any of the new books — Bible, Sainthood, or Afterlife (your choice). Enter as often as you like, with […]

Winner: Name Your Own Toy-Based Movie

posted by Jason Boyett

Thanks to all of you who entered yesterday’s Slate-inspired contest. Lots of great entries and, well, a few ruined childhood memories. Here are my the honorable mentions, which don’t win anything but which I liked anyway and wanted to acknowledge. […]

Name Your Own Toy-Based Summer Movie

posted by Jason Boyett

Admission: I am stealing this directly from Slate. But do I care? No. Do you care? Probably not. So here goes: The summer blockbuster film, opening this weekend, is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It is the sequel to the […]

Winner! Five-Sentence Romantic Story Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday we had another fun five-sentence story contest. This one was a bit different from the last one. No scary stories this time, but romance. No weird “Jimmy” rules, either. Instead, I added requirements that entries use the name “Ruby” […]

Five-Sentence Romantic Story Contest

It’s been a month, so that means it’s time for another contest. For the last contest, I submitted a weird photo and asked you to construct a five-sentence scary story based on it. This time I have located a similarly […]

Good news! After offering yesterday to give away a copy of the book As We Forgive: Stories of Reconciliation from Rwanda, I got an email from my friends at Zondervan, the book’s publisher (and the publisher of my upcoming book […]

Contest Winner: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

Some of you are more disturbed than I am. Lots of good entries in yesterday’s not-very-inspiring “inspirational kitten” caption contest. Lots of entries that made me throw up in my mouth a little. Of the good entries, I couldn’t pick […]

Caption Contest: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

I was making fun of inspirational Twitter posts earlier today and @shueytexas reminded me of the clichéd “Hang in There” virtues of the kitten-in-a-tree poster. Which I may or may not have hung in my room as an 11 year-old. […]

Apocalypse Fun Pack (TM)

posted by Jason Boyett

So I just now got around to assembling the prize for winning last week’s Jason + Tank caption contest. Long-time reader (and Washington state math teacher) Travis Thompson won with his RISK-savvy, Kamchatka shouting-out submission. He wins the never-before-assembled Pocket […]

Hey, everyone. Thanks for minding the fort while I was gone. My wife, Aimee, and I enjoyed a week-long, no-kids Caribbean cruise with a few of our best friends. Had a great time. It looked a lot like this: And […]

Caption Contest: Jason, Tank

I found this picture from my very first publicity photo session, back when Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse released in 2005. Your job is to write a caption for the photo. I’ll pick the best one, based on creativity and […]

Time to Vote: Fake Book Title Contest

posted by Jason Boyett

On Friday, a few of you submitted fake book titles using “nounjectives” in the style of Matthew Paul Turner‘s new book, Churched. I promised a free signed copy of Pocket Guide to the Bible to the winner. I have my […]

Churched and Other Weird Adjectives

The votes are in on the Fake Band Names contest! I’d announce the victor but I’m waiting for a committee to decide whether or not we accept full or half-votes from the residents of Michigan and Florida. Not really. But […]

Voting, Herman, and Small Things

Don’t forget to vote below for the winner of the Fake Band Name contest. “Rawboned Donkey and the Saddlebags” is currently in the lead, so if you think that’s a completely lame name, then you’d better do something about it. […]
