This weekend's contest was a total and utter madhouse! With 275 comments and over 60 entries this was by far the biggest one yet. I guess Mike's challenge of figuring out how to apply modifiers, duplicate and what not brought out the best in all of you.
Mike had the honor of picking one winner, and the community could vote for their favorite! Mike writes:
