As always, wading through the humongous number of entries for the October cartoon caption competition was no easy task, but -- with only a little prodding and poking -- the EE Times Elves have come to a consensus
The winning entry, by EE Times Community Member jreuter809, was "A vacuum tube for you, an old transformer for you...ah, here's a real treat, a paper capacitor!"
A vacuum tube for you, an old transformer for you...ah, here's a real treat, a paper capacitor!
And the runners up -- in no particular order (the EE Times Elves aren't very good at "order")-- were as follows:
CB_EE:"How George discovered he'd been named a section head."
jwizard93:"The neighborhood children came looking for a trick-or-treat, but I'm afraid this is an analog lab and I haven't a byte to eat."
dt_hayden:"You kids think you're scary? I'm YOU in forty years."
fgreco077:"Bob's first day as the CTO for a startup full of Millenials."
VicVat:"Bert thought that wrapping his Galaxy Note 7 in candy wrapping and dropping it into the treat bag might solve his "incessant knocking" problems at Halloween for the foreseeable future."
john alderman:"What do you mean, Windows 10 support ! ??"
Hal would use the information provided by his trick or treating minions to develop the most comprehensive best-treat-providers-in-the-world database and mapping app. It would make him millions for years to come!
Options provided at A.N. Droid's house included tricks: cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, froyo, gingerbread, honeycomb, ice-cream sandwiches, and jelly beans ... as well as treats: lollipops, marshmallows, and nougats. KitKats could be considered one or the other, depending on the recipient's perspective.
