It's one of the final - and iconic - images from 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the baby in the orb, arguably a reborn form of the astronaut.

Ploff's reply was the one I thought was a bit lazy, to be honest - the "full of stars" joke referring to celebrities is one I've thought of/heard before and the image editing felt a bit slapdash. The other two were absolutely brilliant, mind you.

ah, ok...I don't think I've watched right through to the end...*skulks out of thread* - oh wait, wasn't the monkey's dancing round an obelisk the end? or was that the beginning?...and the buried statue of liberty???

This shot is what I based #2 on and it's pretty iconic. I couldn't use it as a basis though due to the angle of the child and dimensions (rules state 8:6 or 6:8), so I had to bash something together that looked similar and fit.

I also included the space station which features prominently in the artwork as an additional clue just in case it wasn't immediately gettable.

Yes, that's the image I remember - so not so lazy as I first imagined.

*still sploff* sorry

It is a bit late now, but yeah, this is absolutely right; it's generally not Wimblewrong etiquette to explain the shots before voting has closed. If you must do it, keep it to PMs.

It used to be Wimblewrong etiquette to post links to the source images so that (a) the opponent could incorporate them into their return and (b) the spectators could get an idea of how much of the image was the player's own work. I guess this died off as conceptual links between shots became more important than element links.

Anyway, after much deliberation, I'm going to vote for the hog.

Ah, that's interesting. That must have been a while before I joined the site. I know there isn't a specific rule about it, but I share Spoon of Ploff's opinion that the wrongs should speak for themselves, and I have noticed in recent years at least that players tend to wait until voting is over before explaining or answering any questions.

Anyway, no harm done. I'm sure it hasn't affected the outcome here at all.

It's all Blodders's fault anyway:

Hedgehog's second was lazy.

Lazy choice of words.

I, for one, welcome our new Wimblewrong overlord: congratulations to hedgehog90, who has won the final 17-5! A very deserving champ, I have to say. He produced consistently brilliant work throughout the tournament. A champ CaB can be proud of.

Commiserations to Spoon of Ploff. I thought the score was going to be much closer. But well done on playing a fantastic final all the same.

Thanks to everyone who took part and everyone who voted. Same time next year, yeah?

Congratulations, hedgehog90 - both you and Spoon of Ploff played one hell of a match, and I, for one, am proud to have been part of the final result by withholding my vote from it.  Have a big trophy.

Just wanted to register my displeasure with those Brucie Wimblewrongs. Cheap, shoddy tack. You lot should be ashamed of yourselves.

Woohoo! I AM THE BEST!!!
Commiserations to Ploff, you made an excellent opponent and it was a pleasure making so many 'wrong babies with you.
Big thanks to everyone who voted for me, and for that matter everyone who participated (even kittens).
But most of all, lets all thank selectivememory for organising this tournament like an absolute pro.
Get up and take a bow.

Have we decided on his punishment yet? And whether it should be financial or physical? Or both?!

Also: Congratulations Hedgehog, your every shot was a stunner this year and you made me laugh a lot, so thank you! And commiserations Ploff, but this is what happens when you flirt and tease but then pull out at the last moment, you dirty whore.

And: Thanks again to SelectiveMemory for running all this. Though I demand a full investigation in to kittens' conduct is carried out before next year's tournament.

Cheers, both.

As for kittens, unfortunately it's out of my hands (and believe me, I want nothing more than to retroactively strip him of his 2016 title and slap a five-year ban on him), but as the higher-ups pointed out to me, his disgraceful vote-rigging has never actually affected the outcome of a match. Obviously that doesn't make his actions any less reprehensible, but in light of that I think the feeling is that he ought to be given the opportunity to redeem himself. They won't be tolerating any more funny business though, I can tell you that much.

Personally, I think it's just because he's popular with the youth demographic. If it were me or Cerys or someone else, I doubt they'd be so lenient.

its a perfect metaphor for his showing in WimbleWrong. I also take great joy in the fact that the cheating cheater of cheatsville has now become the focus of attention in what should be heg90s finest moment.
