I didn't win the skate mental contest... and for good reason.

So, I didn't win the Skate Mental contest. They chose this extremely clever Twitter graphic with a penis attached. It actually does make more sense to have a easily recognizable corporate graphic over original artwork. It both simultaneously informs that this skate company has a Twitter account and piggybacks on the success of a popular webservice without taking any chances, 'cause that would be scary.

"… The weirder, dumber, funnier, stupid-er…the better!!", straight from the administrators of the contest. I'm just glad the corporate world hasn't invaded the skateboard community, because, you know, we're all a bunch of maverick renegades who can't be sold.

Yeah, you've got to wonder about a lot of these art "contests." But then again, slapping a cock on something always works...even on food trucks!
