We're Having an End of Year Contest!

What better way to end 2012 than have a contest? What's the point of the contest? You ask. Well, we'll tell you:

Did you know that President Barack Obama has been to Mars? Well, you do now. And not just once. But twice! As a young man back in the 1980s Barry, as he called himself then, participated in a secret (of course) CIA program to teleport people from Earth to Mars. And obviously back again.

Two self-proclaimed time-traveling, universe-exploring government agents, Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings, insist that they once served as “chrononauts,” traversing the boundaries of time and space. They swear a youthful Barack Obama was one of them. The White House denies this. Of course, if the White House denies something, it must be true!

This is the wingnutiest conspiracy theory we've heard this year. In fact, in our opinion, this takes the cake of tin foil cap wingnut certified lunatic conspiracy theories. In other words, just your usual Republican Teabagger talking points.

If you've encountered a conspiracy theory this past year of 2012 that is even crazier than Barack Obama on Mars, we decidedly want to hear about it. This can not be a conspiracy theory you simply dreamed up. It has to be linked to an actual news story from the past year, from any source. That's the great thing about the Internets. If there's a story out there, there's a link!

Here's the prize: The person who, in our opinion (because it's our contest), comes up with the best conspiracy theory of 2012, better than Barack Obama on Mars, wins one of the spiffiest coffee mugs in existence from as well as a bag of The Parrot Cafe's very own coffee beans.

There's no official deadline for this contest. It's one of these we'll know it when we find it deals.

Best of Luck! And Happy New Year.
