CUP Contest #16

Are you ready for the crazy week of Close Up Photos?

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I will be posting a new CUP contest every day until someone wins this damned thing! If you’re new to the CUP Contest, here’s the general premise: I post a photo, you guess what it is. Scoring is kind of complicated and arbitrary, but the winner is shooting for 1000 points. Visit the CUP Winners page for more information and feel free to jump into the game.

All guesses submitted via the comments or by Facebook will be accepted.  The first person to guess correctly wins 100 internet points.  Anyone who also guesses correctly after that will get some amount of points. As always, extra points may or may not be awarded for amusing answers. The contest is over when I post the answer and announce points, which will be with 24 hours after the contest goes up. I am the ultimate decider of all answers and points. I’ll guarantee an attempt at fairness, but all bets are off when it comes to the logic behind how I hand out points.

Here are the current rankings:

So that’s it! You all remember how this works, so…
