- I post a butt and clues, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, you get 5 points. A New Butt will go up on each Tuesday, and I'll do the reveals on Friday. You only get ONE image from which to Name That Butt!
- If you CORRECTLY identify the artistic work (title/artist) in question, you earn a additional 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) There will be NO second opportunity to guess for fewer points.*
- There may or may not be bonus points up for grabs in addition on Wednesdays over at blog.amaliacarosella.com depending on the butt! When applicable they will be announced on Tuesday in the main post and instructions for how to bonus it up will be included in the bonus post!
- You'll have the whole #NameThatButt season to claim those bonus points when they're offered!!! So feel free to guess on the bonus offerings until the FINAL butt has been revealed.
- You may ONLY submit your guess as a blog comment on this blog (or the appropriate post on blog.amaliacarosella.com for bonus points**) -- I will not accept guesses via any other method!
- As always, comments will be MODERATED, so don't worry that your comment doesn't appear at the bottom of the post -- it isn't supposed to. (If you're afraid it didn't go through, feel free to check in with me via twitter or facebook and I will confirm that your guess arrived in my inbox.)
- As always, #NameThatButt is open INTERNATIONALLY! This year's prizes include a 10 pack of Santa Herc Butt holiday cards (suitable for the winter holiday of your choice) and a pack of Tamer of Horses playing cards (standard 52+Jokers deck.) Plus other authorly swag.
*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. Titles of works must be exact, however.
**You may opt to guess both the butt and the bonus in one comment, and that's fine. But you must name that butt during the regulation week, BEFORE the reveal on Friday, or I cannot count it, for obvious reasons.
OKAY! ARE YOU READY?!
- This butt is most at home on the battlefield, but --
- In The Iliad, this butt was WOUNDED by the oft overlooked hero, Diomedes!
- This butt was both patron and parent of the Amazons.
Also this week we've got an extra bonus bonus (5 points!) if you can correctly name the staircase this butt moons over. There will also be a bonus #NameThatBook at blog.amaliacarosella.com tomorrow!

Well, the butt belongs to Ares. :DReplyDelete
The statue... is that the "Mars" by Sansovino that looks over the Giant's Staircase in Venice?
(My best friend was just there on honeymoon last month!)
