  St. Patrick's Day is here and deviantART is ready to celebrate in style! Put on your favorite green shirt, grab a "Kiss me, I'm Irish!" button, and prepare to win the pot of gold (prizes!) at the end of the rainbow because we've put together a new scuzzle for deviant sleuths to partake in.

  Never heard of a scuzzle? It's a combination scavenger hunt and puzzle that involves both searching for pieces and puzzling them together.

  Devious deviantART staff members took a photo of something w00tacular—something St. Patrick's Day related—and cut it into 30 evenly-sized pieces. We then hid the pieces all around deviantART: as deviations, in scraps, on dAmn, as avatars, and so on. They could be anywhere! But be careful; there may or may not be bogus scuzzle pieces to throw you off the trail. Once all 30 pieces are found, they can be arranged just like a puzzle. If puzzled correctly, the w00tacular photo will be revealed to you!

      
  1.     Search deviantART for all 30 scuzzle pieces   
  2.   
  3.     Correctly arrange the scuzzle pieces (see puzzle grid)   
  4.   
  5.     Submit the finished product as either a deviation or puzzled together in a journal entry   
  6.   
  7.     Post a comment on this article linking to the successfully completed scuzzle   
  8.   
  9.     In your comment, include a creative caption referencing the scuzzle image (be funny, be scandalous, use l337-speak – it's up to you!)   
  10.   
  11.     You can enter as many times as you want   
  12.   
  13.     Below is a piece to start you out:   
   
     (1 winner): The first subscriber to correctly complete and submit the scuzzle, with creative caption, will be awarded an Adobe software bundle of both Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2 (ARV of $998).    
   
     (2 winners): Subscribers who correctly complete and submit the scuzzle, and provide a creative caption, before the contest's conclusion, will be eligible to win an Adobe software bundle of both Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2 (ARV of $998, each).    
     
        
  1.       The contest begins on March 17th, 2009 at 2:00 PM PST and ends March 22nd at 11:59 PM PST. If no winning entries are received within this time period, no prizes will be awarded. You may enter as many times as you wish.     
  2.     
  3.       The St. Patrick's Day Scuzzle is open to all deviantART members who are at least 13 years old for participation; however, only subscribers (both domestic and international) are eligible to win prizes. There is a charge for deviantART subscribers. deviantART staff, employees, volunteers and the immediate family members of any of those are not eligible to enter the contest.     
  4.     
  5.       The prizes will only be awarded to a participant with an active subscription at the time he or she posts the completed scuzzle. If non-subscribers wish to be eligible for prizes, they must upgrade their deviantART membership before their submission to the contest.     
  6.     
  7.       Captions will be judged on the following criteria:       
              
    •           Creative reference to the scuzzle image         
    •         
    •           Ability to standout among other captions         
    •       
          The judging team includes: $Heidi, $evafleur, $eStunt, and $dan14lev. Other deviantART staff members may be substituted as judges if necessary.     
  8.     
  9.       deviantART may use the name of any entrant in connection with the scuzzle.     
  10.     
  11.       Any attempt to cheat at the scuzzle or to appropriate completed entries from other entrants will result in disqualification.     
  12.     
  13.       deviantART is solely responsible for the conduct of the scuzzle. By participating you agree to be bound by these rules and by the decisions of the judges.     
  14.     
  15.       Winners of the caption prizes will be announced by $Heidi.     
  16.

1."And so, the light refracts off the stress balls, creating the illusional pot of gold and the rainbow. Any questions?"

2."I followed the rainbow and found a pot, all right, but the prize was BETTER than gold!"

3. Emoticon stress balls are gifts from the community. Treasure it more so than gold.

4. Glasses? Check. Pin? Check. Pot? Check. Gold? Check...?

Caption of second entry:

So you are not the first one to reach the pot of gold.
So what?
You still have a chance to claim your share of it,
But you have to write down the following:

Remember the countless hours spent
Roaming all across deviantART
Finding scuzzle pieces
Scattered all over the place.

Recall the many galleries and scrapbooks visited
Belonging to the finest staff members
Revealing scuzzle pieces
Placed amidst their blood and time spent works.

Recollect the numerous deviants met
Congregating at dAmn's scuzzle chatroom
Holding scuzzle pieces
Shared amongst friends and strangers alike.

Realize the discovered and undiscovered reaches of deviantART.
Realize the appreciated and unappreciated staff members and their works.
Realize the new and renewed bonds of community and friendship.
Realize them all!

I just realised a typo in my second entry so I'm resubmitting it, I hope it still qualifies:
Caption:
I got a caulderon full, a caulderon full of sunshine
I got scuzzles and I know that they’re all mine
Oh, oowohoo
Shamrocked-out and I know I’m lookin so fly
Rainbow shining all across the sky
Oh, oowoohoo

Take me away, for St. Patrick’s Day
A green escape, take me away
To an Irish bar, give me car
Hey that star, looks very far

*cuts fella’s song*
Random guy: Hey mate! You’re already totally wasted!

Description: A drunken fella singing at a karaoke bar to the tune of Natasha Bedingfield's Pocket Full of Sunshine.

You think that joke is old?
