Glad to see you won.

I am a little dissapointed as I thought other entries were more entertaining

1st place seems really odd as the image does not shw multiple tanks going over cliffs. The image of the destoyed tanks don't go with the line...

2nd place.. What has the image to do with a Sheriff chase?

3rd place   Good one...

As to the first place winner, there is a cliff, and there are two (i.e., multiple) tanks in the image.  One of the tanks has clearly come over the top of the cliff and crashed into the lower one.  While it is possible that the lower tank was already at the bottom of the cliff when the upper one came over, there is nothing in the image to force that presumption.  As such is it equally possible that the first tank went over the cliff followed by the second.  They both are clearly dead.  While I think my caption suggesting that this was the reason the idea of a new Lemming line of tanks was scrapped was funnier, any lemming (myth) reference is certainly appropriate given the image, especially given the fact that "lemming" is an oft used reference in-game for players rushing to their deaths.

As to the second place winner, you are missing the reference.  It is not to a real life sherriff chase.  It is a reference to the occassional "Who Shot the Sheriff" in-game event (http://forum.worldof...ot-the-sheriff/) where a player with the word "Sheriff" in his name is placed in the event on one side and whichever opposing side player kills him gets 500 gold as a reward.  This incentive, of course, can lead people to take risks to get the kill, which is what the caption is referencing.

As to the third place winner, I agree.  It is good.

Good job guys. I still think 3rd place should've been 1st.
