Our Generous Leader announces His creation of "THE PARTY FLAG CONTEST"! Starting today, “THE PARTY FLAG CONTEST” will begin. All loyal Inner and Outer Party Members, including proles, are ordered to enter! “THE PARTY FLAG CONTEST” will end when Wonderful Leader has decided upon a winner!
DIRECTIVE ORDERS: All designs MUST contain basic elements of Cubist Core Principles and Proper Marxist-Leninist Thought.
Designs NOT containing these elements will be denounced and their artistic graphical creator will be condemned and sent to The State Re-Education Arts Camp for extensive rehabilitation.
Comrade Contestants may enter, are encouraged to enter, multiple examples of The Party Flag posted in this thread. Contest Winner Comrade will receive an additional 5 kilos of beets per annum and an extra 10 liters of vodka per month as well as provisional membership in The Inner Party for 1 year (if Comrade is an Outer Party member or a prole). If winner is an Inner Party member, Comrade will be allowed to attend 1 State Politburo meeting (non-voting) and be issued a provisional State Politburo Exclusive Shopping Club membership card (use expires after 1 visit).
Non-participants in “THE PARTY FLAG CONTEST” will be purged, shipped to The State Gulag Fun Camp, their beet and vodka rations reduced to 25%.
ARE YOU READY COMRADES? PREPARE YOURSELVES, GET SET, BEGIN!
However, since Vimeo somtimes is notoriously slow in loading (and there is no YouTube version), Red Square will be more pleased if I merely provide the link rather than embedding it:
I may vote for others later as well.
Ain't nothing more than an endorsement by Red Square.
Cast yo own vote wisely, ya unnerstan, creepy-ass Cracka?
I'm quite sure that you can't use the French battle ensign for this particular contest.
My apologies for being late to the Party... I only hope that Red Square will be lenient in his judging of my flag.
You are not late! Equality of Outcome is always assured!
Interesting submission I have to say.
Great Magnanimous Leader has yet to decide so that all can submit.
But when He decides to decide, a Party Communique will be issued forthwith.
O'er the land owned by the State and the home of freeeeee ~ shit."
...So pour the last libation down the sink,
And pay the pickled piper, who demands
A surtax on the hemlock in our drink.
Come, let us kiss and part. And let our hands
Wave gaily from the quicksand as we sink.
I denounce you in front of the Contest Committee!
Songs NOT ALLOWED IN THE "FLAG" CONTEST!
Please read directive closely, nothing mentioned about song submissions! The 1st lesson learned in Re-Education Program is not to assume because it is not written, it can be so!
However, your song creation brought me great pride in your talent, at the same time I was composing your denunciation warrant, so as you can see, I was very conflicted! However, True Marxist-Leninist Thought overcame me and the warrant was presented.
Do not sell yourself short Comrade, have seen examples of your graphical ability and the Committee has decided that if you comply with Party Order and submit a flag design in the proper manner, your beet rations will be restored and not be dispatched to The State Gulag Fun Camp, so you still have time to re-habilitate yourself.
While your enthusiasm and creativity are acknowledged, use caution in starting a "contest" <spit> as there is kapitalist overtones of a single winner, making others less equal and causing widespread damage to self esteem. I have beets to tend to, enjoy your stay.
MiniTruth Re-History Directorate has ruled and announced that in this case, Great Leader's wise decision to implement a "One Winner" in this contest does not negate "kapitalist overtones of a single winner. We all well know that Great Leader's wisdom in political matters is sacrosanct, so while I commend you on "proper" Marxist-Leninist-Cubist thought processes, in this case only, I caution you to adhere to the 1st Principle we all have learned and loved that "Great Leader is NEVER wrong about anything he wants to amend because soon we all will forget the original"!
Or version for staging areas:
As you may not be aware that even though we all are equals, some are more equal then others. I happen to be just as equal as you, but through many years of toiling through the ranks doing everything only 'for the children' ™ at no thought of recompense at all for my socialist efforts, my equal status is now more than yours to the point that I have butlers and maids and I now own yachts.
Your new here and you have made quite a good impression so far but you need a little guidance, step into the............
For a few minutes so that other Comrades can't hear the rest of this. Let me help mentor you a bit. Just to be clear for you, Red Square is top dog leader here on The Cube. So far he's taken kindly to you, but any other references in your posts to another great leader other than our beloved Red Square might cause him to suspect that your loyalties lie elsewhere and trust me you do not wish do anything to arouse Red Squares suspicions. In fact, fine toadyism toward Red Square and Red Square only when invoking leaders will get you far, and is a much admired trait and should be cultivated in yourself as much as possible as you progress here. I'll work on how to develop your future backstabbing and the proper way to drop dimes on your fellow Comrades when they exhibit suspicious behavior later. Secondly, remember as noted everything we do is 'for the children' ™ and my kids yacht needs a new dinghy so send me some underneath the table cash to my Cayman Islands bank account for my most equal advice that I just gave you or I'll denounce you to Red Square personally.
Is that a sincere sounding as I thought it should appear? Thank you Commodore Comrade (Point in fact; All Great Leader references referred to RedSquare in my posts anyway but I felt the need to de-base myself in front of the Party) My contribution to the children is in the mail
I wish to lodge a formal complaint with "The Party Flag" announcement committee. I assert that Comrade Marx, in an act of willful piracy has taken my "thought" (and I use the word figuratively) and submitted it in his own name. As proof, I offer the following link to official TPC archives.
It should be noted that I named this file "Thought Crime" in the full knowledge that some future thought criminal might be tempted to use it as his/her/its own - thus sealing his/her/its fate.
I patiently await your decision.
Captain Craptek (the humble)
Disregard my last post. I see a contribution from Comrade Marx his just arrived to my Paypal account. Sorry. My error.
As we all know, it takes a village. And a few rubles here and there to grease the village.
