It was a heated competition this weekend, but the time has come to announce our winner and present the hypothetical swag:

Stormtroopers just wanna have fun

smark Says:

Say what you want about the Evil Empire, they did have a great employee picnic.

Congratulations and imaginary riches to smark for the winning entry. And what shall we hypothetically present for the virtual trophy of the theoretical competition? A little something to cushion the landing, in softest eiderdown and highest-of-high-tech microfiber:

Monday Teeny Poll

A whopping eighty three percent of you are dictators at the family table, banning any and all electronic entertainment. I join you in celebrating our rule! I happen to think that eating together as a family is one of the most important things we can do for our children. I don’t care if it’s KFC you picked up on the way home from work, make time to share at least one meal a day together. That means talking with each other, not texting your friends or playing a Leapster. And, that includes meals out.

Something brought up in the comments got me to thinking about something that happened in early July. A woman boarded a Southwest plane with her sister and their children. One child is autistic, and another has cerebral palsy. The children were apparently disruptive during the flight, getting up and being loud. Upon attempting to board their connecting Southwest flight, they were told that due to the children’s behavior on the previous flight, they were not allowed to board. They were forced to get a flight on another airline the next day. Southwest did not give them a later flight, nor did it give them a hotel for the night.
