Actually, I kinda like the Your Mom joke. It's short, simple, and classic.

[up] I'm not crazy about that one.

So as not to get sued for infringement, the Mayhem one could be shortened to "Not even Allstate can handle this mayhem."

[up] Actually that's not bad at all.

So what's the consensus here? I think we've pretty much decided on a replacement picture and are just tossing out caption ideas at this point.

If there aren't any serious objections by tomorrow, I'll go ahead and put the pic up.

I guess.

I'm a little wary, though. The trope reads like this is about the random props strewn about in the middle of gameplay that can only be interacted with by destroying it. A Bonus Stage specifically centered on the destruction of one specific prop doesn't seem like the most straight example of the trope.

Still, it's better than the current image; while I can tell it's Storm the Owl swatting a car away, it took a good deal of familiarity with the work, as well as difficulty figuring out just what the hell I was looking at, to determine this.

[up] I am familiar with Sonic Riders but it took me a few moments just to make out that he was shoving a car out of the way.

^^ Wait, that's what the definition is? Just ... 'destructible props'? I've been mulling over whether or not to YKTTW exactly that for a week now.
No a little more: you can interact with some (or all) of the scenery, in a video game, but the only way to interact with it is to damage it.

So can we put the pic up?

Yeah, I think we're good. The pic's up, potholed, and tagged, and I've set up a crowner for the caption.

Who is Allstate? I've never heard of them. Is this one of those things that America people (of a certain generation) have heard of but the rest of the world hasn't?
Special trousers. Very heroic.

[up] They're an insurance company; my first suggestion is a parody of their current (and, IMO, brilliant) ad campaign. However, I thought it'd be best to shorten it to the one in the crowner.
I have never seen any of those commercials, and I got it. I know Allstate is a car insurance company though. Could it be rephrased to include that information somehow?

Well, with the way the votes have shifted, it's a moot point...unless there's a big swing soon, I'll probably call this tomorrow.

Alright, I think we can call this one. The caption's up and the tag is adjusted; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
