It's been ages since we've seen a lad pose in a barrister wig for a photo trophy.

Lads all scam with cell-phones (which have cameras) nowadays, so it should be easy. Right?

So here's the challenge: The first new member (here less than 90 days*) to get a photo trophy of a lad in full barrister garb (robe+white wig) gets a 1 year free premium membership, paid for by yours truly.

That's it. Simple. The challenge runs until there is a winner.

(Trophy's should be a high quality photo, worthy of posting in the Trophy Room, and not a half-assed lad attempt just to get a quick WU.)

Bonus round 1 - The first new member that can tell me what barrister wigs were commonly referred to (here on Eater) circa 2004-2007 (when they were all the rage), gets a Goat.

Bonus round 2 - If you can also get your barrister to pose with either a fish or a loaf of bred on his head (also in full barrister garb) you win 2 years Premium, or you can donate the 2nd year to any other baiter of your choice.

Bonus round 3 - The receiver of the WORST trophy photo, as decided by a secret moderator decision, will also receive a prize.

EDIT: 25 April: An "Experienced member" category has now been added, with an additional Premium membership prize. The same rules apply as above: high quality photo of a lad in full barrister garb (robe+white wig)


May the best baiter win, and let the games begin!


(*anyone here a little over the 90 day mark, PM me for consideration if you'd like to enter.) Exclamation

Would I just tell a lad to wear barrister clothes, or would I say something else for him to know what I mean?

If it were me, I would bait lads already claiming to be barristers, and then figure out a way to get a picture of them in their traditional barrister gear. It's not like you're asking him to dress as a clown. He should have access to his courtroom apparel. Laughing

/\/\/\ Good to see there's at least two of you trying!

I guess others are just not up to the challenge. It's probably best, since lads are so much smarter than most baiters. [/reverse-psychology] Twisted Evil

The seniority of barristers is usually identified by the colour of their wigs, with the most senior ones having pink wigs:

So if your lad isn't sporting a pink wig then he probably isn't senior/experienced enough to be handling your transaction Smile

100% risky free? How could I possibly turn this golden opportunity down? Very Happy

I'll take my shot. I just sent one message to a lad I found in surplus and maybe one or two more later from Fatter Siam's list.

I have to say I have some doubts if I can pull this off, but so what. I'll give it a try anyway Smile

For those of you participating you could use Shiver's "Holy Church of Fish and Bread" baits on Letters Archive as inspiration

Well, it seems I'm off with a rather promising start. I may or may not get the trophy, but I think I'm going to have some fun in any case.

My initial message to [email protected] (Thanks for the addresses, Fatter Siam!) was simple:

Quote:
Hello and thank you for message,

I have to admit I surprised to get your message. Can you please explanate further?


So I got a scripted message (I'll cut it short since I'm sure you've all seen this before)
Quote:

Dear friend,
Thanks for your response. I have gone through your mail and I want you to know that it was not by mistake that I contacted you because I was left with no other option than.. blah.. blah.. blah.. a lot of money etc..


My character was very, very confused about this (Well, my goal is to get a picture of him as a barrister and I figured that the fast track to my goal is to be be suspicious and demand some proof that he is actually one - a photo or id card of sufficient quality should do it):

Quote:
Hello

I am very confused. I not know of any any relative that passed way and left lot of money.

Are you real barrister? Is this joke? Paavo, is that you to fool me again?


And now suddenly I got an email from a new account (one which I did sent a identical probing message to but got no reply from until now: [email protected]. It seems this lad has more than one account to play with):

Quote:
Good day!
Dear XXXX XXXXXX, I am Barrister XXXXXXX XXXXXX Esq. Bear with me that i have a serious case with bank about my late client access deposited fund left. I do not know very well if you have blood relative to my late client Mr. Schafeitel XXXXXX. I consider you since you h state with my late client, if you are willing to stand by the inheritance access fund, then get back to me on the respect of the claim.


I retracted names since this is public forum and I don't want him to find this on google search. But anyway it seems I got his attention - he even got my character's name right! (I didn't expect that. It's a Nordic name with quite a few ä's and ö's in it. Well, almost a name - I mangled it a bit to make sure it wouldn't match to any living person Very Happy)

I think this could turn out to be a fun bait. There are so many ways to develop this story Smile

So, I'm wondering if I should join in the fun. I mean technically I have been baiting for less than 90 days (since my last published bait sometime in 2010 maybe?). But that would mean I would also have to bait some of you new guys/gals into paying for my premium membership, and that's a (read: the only) perk of modship. Plus Rover got mad at me the last time I baited a member, which ended in Pastor Frank accepting a modship (my best bait by far). But I digress.

I may have to join this one just for fun, and also to see if I've still got what it takes to run with the big dogs. Very Happy

/\/\/\ Have you seen lad prices lately? I'd rather just contract Martha Stewart to custom make my sandwiches.

Besides, garri on rye doesn't really sound appetizing.

Lads are notorious for sending really terrible photoshopped junk, failing to follow instructions, or otherwise producing lame and miserable trophy photos besides what has been requested. To keep things interesting, I am adding a prize for the WORST lad photo received by a baiter in the course of this competition.

"Worst" will be decided by moderator judgment. This way, crappy failed attempts by lazy or devious scammers may still get you a prize.

The original post has been updated to reflect this additional element.

I got a message from Barrister Mailer-Daemon and he was too lazy to send a picture. Does that mean I win a prize?
