back to article And the winner of the horrible Microsoft Paint sweater is ...

We have a winner. After much discussion, tears, tantrums, and tea, Microsoft's knitted monstrosity is going to a reader who has clearly had a bad experience buying from overseas. Reader Pete 2 had the cunning idea of bundling a whole load of entries into one comment, and it was the "China will buy SpaceX and offer cheap trips …

    In my best Trump voice...

    I know about votes. I know more about votes than anyone and I can be telling you now that I won this.

    I got biggly more votes than this Pete2 person. What kind of name is that anyway? Sounds like a made-up name and that tells us all we need to know: this vote was RIGGED by the FAKE MEDIA and STOLEN from my wonderful supporters who know I am the true winner. We will fight this wrongly verdict.



    ...goes on for another few weeks until head explodes.

    On a serious note: congrats., Sir! Well deserved :-)

      In the spirit of the competition you're only supposed to put WRONG responses! This is far too RL to appear here!

      What kind of a loser name is Ball boy anyway?

      I WON this jumper. And I deserve to wear it - as it matches my beautiful hair! I am Donald Trump - and so is my wife!

      The Register are just sad. Sad failed media. Failed old Web 1.0 Media. Truth Social is Web 5.0 media. The best kind. The Register is full of fake news and fake jumpers. I bet they don't even have a real jumper anyway. I bet it's made of Playmobil. Which is why I SHOULD HAVE IT! Because my hair is also made of Playmobil!

      Note to editors: We don't have access to a sufficiently orange icon. We need a tiger, on a sunbed, using a certain brand of mobile phone while being Tangoed. If you weren't sad Web 1.0 media - you would already have this!

  2. What? Me worry?

    To Who it may concern

    I think my favourite was the AI Doctor Who deepfake suggestion. Along with the sometimes naked Hartnell, would there also be hot Silurian on Silurian action to entertain/horrify us? That should really get people hiding behind the sofa...

    I predict AI will also revolutionise porn. Making it much more satisfying. In the AI version of the videos the lonely housewife will call a plumber, and he'll come on time, fix her plumbing and leave with the minimum of banging and mess. Surprisingly he'll only have a very small... invoice...

    Well done all.


    Congrats Pete2

    Merry RegMas

    Oh well

    Looks like I'll have to rely on my Father Jack jumper for another year.

    Congratulations, @Pete2

    edit - in terms of libel, I'm sure I can use the satire defence, against both entities...
