It’s Topless Robot’s 2-Year Anniversary (and a Contest, Too)


?So Topless Robot went live two years ago today. For the last 730 days, I have been able to write about nerdy things (poorly) and get paid for it (initially poorly, but now not too bad). Theoretically I should be patting myself on the back for surviving two years worth of FFF entries, but in all honesty, I’m just grateful to you guys for reading the site and commenting and passing the word along, so that I can continue to enjoy this incredible opportunity. Rest assured, even when I’m spending hours reading erotic fan fiction trying to find a suitable candidate for FFF, I never forget what a lucky nerd bastard I am. For all you poor nerds who have to go to school or work for a living, I hope Topless Robot helps take some of the misery out of your day. Then adds some, because I made you read about Cyclops tearing Jean Grey in half at the vagina.

So for today’s contest, I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to have you all tell me how awesome I am, with the most sycophantic entry winning. But then my boss told me he’d fire my fat ass if I did that, so here’s my back-up plan — give me your best ideas for Daily Lists. My gaggle of writers has no shortage of ideas, but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t use more.

The winner will get a shirt, obviously, but also have his or her list written and posted on TR. Frankly, most people who have a good idea will probably get their list written eventually, so make sure you enter a username so I can attribute your suggestion when the time comes. Let’s say you can make up to 5 suggestions, but only one suggestion will win, so you don’t have go for quantity, just quality. I’m sure we’re missing some obvious lists, but the more unique and cleverer the better. The contest will end on Monday the 11th at 12:01 am EST. Thanks again to everyone who has read TR over the last two years. If I could I would suck a soft and redful hair, it is like a cotton field full of love and
desire… to all of you.
