Chillin'Competition

Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

[New] Urgent Competition- 2 Millon Reward

with 14 comments

The good news first: Chillin’Competition just went over 2 million visits. Thanks so much everyone for choosing to come here from time to time.

The competition that we improvised this morning (see here) didn’t quite work according to plan. We received over 1,500 visits in the first half an hour. (!); the system got stuck and did not update for a while, so unfortunately we don’t know who the exact 2 million visitor was.

We have received reports from readers who claim to have tried to refresh the page on several devices and networks. This situation raises important questions, mainly: didn’t you really have anything else to do?! 😉

To make up for it we offer two things:

-Since we know that what truly motivated you was the possibility to introduce more absurdity, some fun, a word in one of Pablo’s academic articles: please write as a comment to this post or in a tweet the word that you’d like Pablo to include in his next paper (I’d go for Oocephalus, my colleagues suggest Dracarys). We’ll then select the best ones and run a poll. The person who suggests the winning word will get the Chillin’Competition sports bag and t-shirt.

-A free round of beers at an open bar to be announced soon.

  6. Squelch. It’s a fantastic word with three very different meanings, including an onomatopoeia.

    Ok that’s two words, but it would still be amusing.

  13. It’s more than a word but would fit more or less anywhere; the super loved expression by competition lawyers “oops I did it again”

    Gee
