Default The FINAL Griswold contest; "I am Clark Griswold" (4 entries)

Welcome to the last entry contest in this year's contest. This will also be the last Griswold contest for the BO boards as Clark will not be returning next year. This contest will run until 12/10 at 12pm EST. All valid entries will be randomed to determine the wiiners and slots #1,2,4 and the last slot will be deemed as the winners. Good luck!!!

"I AM CLARK GRISWOLD"


The mythology behind the Clark Griswold character relates to us all. He's just an average guy trying to put together a nice Christmas for his family despite being screwed over by his company and extra guest. I can relate to Clark in many ways (falling off a ladder while decorating, corporate bs, afinity for lingerie salespeople, etc.) but how does Clark relate to you? And how do you look like Clark?

1) How do you relate to the Clark Griswold character? Describe the situation[ please begin answer with "I am Clark Griswold because.......]

2) Post a picture of yourself dressed in your holiday finest


Sample answers;
1) I am Clark Griswold because I had to buy presents for my brother's family one year when they showed up suddenly.
2)

(or this for example)

You will get one entry for each question!!! So 2 entries if you complete both questions (feel free to answer 1 then edit in your pic before end of contest) Pic must be of you in holiday regalia.[Clark reserves the right to add any additional entries for truly epic photos]

Edit; Clarification: you will get one entry if you only answer question 1, you will get two entries for completing both questions

Total of 4 winners this time so let's get those entries in!!!!!!!!GL

1) I am Clark Griswold because I get no holiday bonus -- well, I get the equivalent of Jelly of the month club. And I've already spent all the money on my wild black friday purchasing :-)
2) And this is me playing Santa Claus for my younger cousins (I live the farthest away from them so I'm the least recognizable to them):

1. I am Clark Griswold because I know my turkey dinner will be less than tasty this year. (Stupid Mexican turkey!)
2. Gotta see if I can find a pic of me during Christmas.

Hate to do it but going with the I'm Clark Grizwold because I'm not getting a bonus this year (long story short the Federal Shutdown funds for pay reimbursement were not allocated so its coming out of our district funds since we're only 20% federally funded), so the rest is coming out of district funds and that's removed any chances of any pay performance bonuses.

But here's me in my Wintery Best for Petsmart (fund raiser for Weim Rescue)

I am Clark Griswold because my family makes me absolutely crazy. Every time we are all together for a holiday, Clark's speech at the dinner table runs through my head ("Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f@#king Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white #@#@#@ down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of #@#@#@holes this side of the nuthouse". - Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase)

2. Yup, I wore this to work today!

1. I am Clark Griswold because I am not getting a Christmas Bonus (never have) and like Clark I always try to look for the positives in situations. Though it does not always work.

2. Was pretty bummed that Santa wouldn't let me sit on his lap...

First, i must say i will be sad not to see Clark return next year. This is one of the most fun contests. I must say thanks to him and to you Rinkwraith for this every year.

1. My family is just as loud and as dysfunctional as that one. Also my grandmother used to be like Grace before she passed on.

2. Dont know if I have one. Will look for sure

You have randomized this list 3 times.

As eldavojohn is already in the winner's circle, Clark has ruled SethMurphy will take the additional spot here for bravery in posting a selfie that could follow him the rest of his BO days.

EDIT; actually, nyisle is the duplicate as eldavojohn won other thread. Seth and eldavo join nyisle in the winner's circle.
