It would kinda defeat the purpose of having a contest if they only read like 5 of them...

It would be cool to list how many people actually voted for each individual winner of a contest.  I am always "surprised" by the winning comments of each contest.  It almost seems like the dumber, the better.  I also want to point out, that although the MAJOR reads them all, and picks finalists, I highly doubt the people that bother voting, actually take the time to go through all 3 or 4 pages of finalists.

That is why I keep them to under 40 finalists,  so we only have two pages max for the caption contest.

Haha nice, I did this to a poor SU-26 when I was in my KV-2, it wasn't a pretty sight for him.
