We've had the Post Making Contest. We've had the Picture Drawing Contest. We've had the Number Choosing Contest. And who can forget Toast Making or Pizza Topping Contests? Now, you might be asking yourself, can these get any more ridiculous and meta? Of course they can, and that's what this is here for.

Come up with your great ideas for what rules need to be a part of these contests. However, there are five secret rules (like always), that determine whether or not you win. Submit up to five rules per post, like "Post must include the letter A". If you are the first to submit a rule that follows all of the secret rules, you win the grand prize of absolutely nothing!

For the record, my example rule broke all five secret rules. Have fun!

I'm not entirely sure on what the rule(s) is, but it for sure passes 5 and fails 1 and 3, and I'm pretty sure it passes 4 and fails 2.

Passes rule 5. Might pass rule 1, but I really don't think so.

Passes rule 5. If I am being super-duper technical, it also passes rule 2. Remember, you can put up to five rules in a post if you want.

Passes rule 1 and 5. Also, all of Fogel's rules failed rule 3, as opposed to the spectacular fails that everyone else had had.

Passes rule 5. May or may not pass rule 2. Passes rule 2.

This rule passes rules 3 and 5, it fails 2 and 4, and for 1 it... uh... well... that sure is a paradox. I'm going to have to go with it Qs rule 1.

All rules must directly contradict an existing rule, but the posts containing the new rules must follow all existing rules.

Barely passes 5, but that's it.

Passes 1, 2, and barely 5.

Passes 5, and I'm pretty sure it will pass 2. I wish photo was mandatory, though. Wouldn't change the rules it passed, but it would be funnier.

Passes 5 and I think it passes 2 as well. It fails 3 and 4, and probably 1 as well.

1. It's my birthday so my posts are the only posts not allowed to win.
2. I feed hints to Immaterial so he always wins the contest.
3. This rule is kind of ambiguous so I'm not always sure if something passes it.
4. Maybe posts that fail this rule actually pass it due to negligence.
5. I'm a man.
