Hermes, from NGA
(1st Annual NTB)
It's the post you've all been waiting for -- The Second Annual #NAMEthatBUTT challenge is coming your way! 

The game begins October 7th, with all new butts and all new mythological figures! (There may or may not be some abs and midriffs thrown in for funsies along the way, too.) So let's rehash the rules to prepare ourselves, shall we?

  • COMMENTS WILL BE MODERATED UNTIL THE END OF THE GAME. This means that all comments will sit in the queue until I approve them, AFTER the name of the butt has been revealed. You will NOT see your comment appear immediately after posting! No point in letting everyone ride the coattails of the person who guesses right first!
  • I post a butt and clues, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, you get 5 points. 
  • If you CORRECTLY identify the artistic work (title/artist) in question, you earn a bonus 5 points total: 2.5 for title, 2.5 for artist. (Provided of course, that it differs from the subject's name alone and the artist is known at all)
  • The following Friday, I reveal the full backside image of the sculpture in question! If at this time you can correctly identify artist/title/subject of the piece, you can earn up to 3 points (total -- 1 point for artist, 1 point for title, 1 point for subject) 
  • You may guess artist/title/subject until the next round of NAME THAT BUTT begins. (Usually the next Tuesday -- I'll reveal the previous week's sculpture and offer the next butt for guessing!)
  • I'll keep a running tally of correct answers/points, with occasional updates of who is "winning."
  • For Olympians, Greek AND Roman names are acceptable for the subject guesses. For example, if the butt belongs to Mercury, I will also accept Hermes as a correct answer.
  • The game will continue for as long as I have photographs of backsides to share, but a new NAME THAT BUTT may not be posted every week, depending on Things. 
  • There will be Prizes at the finish. They will be shipped internationally. I have not yet decided what they will be, though for sure there will be #NAMEthatBUTT postcards because they are beautiful. Maybe possibly there will be some kind of #NAMEthatBUTT... accessory or apparel. Suggestions and ideas will be taken into consideration!

Who is ready to play?! Sound off in the comments and let's get this party started!!
