(Am I the only one who twitches a little bit thinking about that? Seriously. Extreme Jacuzzi Enthusiasm is clearly not in my future).
Now, creating a title was not part of the contest, but some had titles. If an entry didn’t have a title, I added one (probably a really boring one) so please – don’t count the titles, but feel free to snortlaugh with me.
