Luck O' The Irish: Caption Contest Winners Announced

A lot of blarney tinged with geek. And the winning caption is...

From iPots to BlackBerrys and Bitcoins, our InformationWeek Luck O’ The Irish cartoon caption contest brought out more than a little blarney tinged with geek. Nearly 100 of you submitted entries -- and the rest laughed and cheered the contestants on. 

And so it is with great pleasure and humor I am happy to announce the winner: InformationWeek community member Ray Fussell. a marketing analyst with Century Link, for his hysterical submission pictured below. 

Ray takes home a $25 Amazon gift card and an original signed copy of the cartoon by John Klossner, who helped judge the contest along with InformationWeek editor-in-chief Laurianne McLaughlin. Second prize goes to Tony Wong, social media director for JWT Canada for the clever "I'm lucky - the last guy got a pot full of BlackBerrys.”

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. If you haven’t yet read all the captions, be sure check them out.
