Throwdown/CagePotato Wallpaper Design Contest: We Have a Winner!


Well that was exciting! Thanks to a late surge on Thursday night aided by a mysterious re-tweet, Jesse L.‘s russkie-inpired "Potato Nation Unite" design edged out JoseMonkey’s old dad tribute to win our CagePotato Wallpaper Design Contest! A round of applause for Jesse, who surely has some interesting opinions about who should own the means of production.

Sorry we didn’t get the results up on Friday as originally promised, but as jimbonics correctly pointed out, we were up at the Expo not giving a damn about you. (Lots of amazing videos, photos, and stories to come.) Jesse L., please shoot us an e-mail at with your name, address, shirt size, and shoe size, and we’ll get you hooked up with that bomb-ass $250 prize package from Throwdown. Thanks so much to Throwdown for making this possible; visit them at and show your support for one of the best brands in the industry. 

If you didn’t win, brush the dirt off your shoulders and stay tuned, because we have another contest that we’re financially obligated to announce in the next hour. And after that, we’ll be back to your regular programming, scout’s honor…

Methinks the “last minute comeback” is pretty fucking suspicious. No way CP was going to let the Old Dad entry win.

I still am putting the fleshlight entry as my wallpaper at work.

LAS - spot on - old dad had the contest all but wrapped up until the 'mysterious sudden comeback' occurred.
Not to take anything away from you, Jesse L, as I do like the wallpaper.

Thanks Dude :D
Jesse L- August 30, 2010 at 9:36 am
Wow, thanks so much everyone.
I'm taking graphic design, so this is a great boost for me.
Also a great excuse to say I did something design related over the summer.

Some of the other designs were really good. I won't lie, when I first saw Eric R's submission, I was feeling the pressure. But unlike Shane Carwin in the 2nd round, I didn't let my body immediately seize up on me.

Some of them were hilarious. Which prompted lots of questions from friends, when lobbying for votes. Most of the time, I would just say "Look, if I lose to a male sex toy and end up soul searching in the woods, that's on you".

Jimbonics, ask so eloquently and you shall receive: hXXp://

Can we get this winning wallpaper in a resolution people actually use? 1024x768, really? This ain't 1998.

Congrats Jesse L! Sick wallpaper and you deserve that sweet prize pack!

So, can we take guesses on who the capitalist swine is?
JoseMonkey- August 30, 2010 at 5:35 am
Oh well. Sadly, that was probably the closest I'll ever come to winning a CP contest.

Thanks for letting people vote on my entry, despite the old dad reference. Thanks to everyone who voted for me, too.

Congrats, Jesse L. -- if I wasn't voting for myself, I would have probably voted for you.
