“Now THESE, are spirit fingers.”

The runners-up were:

Eliot De Diego Watson: “Good,” thought Tobias, “no one will notice my awful tie.”

Chris Brauner: “Can someone please zip up my fly for me?”

Lisa Sheehy: Thunderbolt [and] lightning, very very frightening

There were also lots of hertz puns, Edward Scissorhands references, and quotes from songs and poems (“Electric Avenue,” “I Sing the Body Electric,” etc.)
