Excel Meme Contest Winners

Well the Excel Meme contest is at an end and we have three winners. I received over 100 memes – some of them not usable (tsk..tsk..tsk).

Out of the ones that weren’t too naughty or eaten by my email, I’ve picked three winners.

It was a difficult task to pick just three out of the dozens of creative and very funny memes.

But here they are.

.

Winner: Chris Macro

I’ve had this experience of trying to remain patient as someone scrolls through thousands of rows while telling me his spreadsheet is quote “like 2 million something big”.

.

.

Winner: Szilvia Juhasz

The notion that you can continuously click Undo until you actually get to a previous version of Excel.

Come on…that’s funny.

Winner: Oz du Soleil

The secret to a funny meme (in my opinion) is to make the words match the picture perfectly.

Oz nails it with Jean Luc Picard. Oh…and…please do stop hiding Column A!

.

.

I can’t possibly show all of the memes here, but I’ll show some of the honorable mentions.

But before I do that, let me give a hearty thanks to everyone who sent me their memes. Believe me – I loved them all.

You can download all the Excel memes I’ve received in one big ZIP file.

    My personal fave was Daniel’s OFFSET Batman and Robin. I’ve never actually slapped someone for using the wrong function, but oh, I sure wanted to a few times.

  2. Jon Peltier

    Well, that’s ten minutes I’ll never get back. But it was WORTH IT! I don’t know how you picked only three winners, several of the others had me ROFLMBFAO.

  3. Chris Macro

    Great job everyone! Thanks to Mike, the Excel community has now create a whole new category of memes that I’m sure will grow and be shared in the future.

    My favorites were Szilvia Juhasz’s and Ian Johnson’s entries.

  4. Szilvia Juhasz aka XSzil

    Oh Em Gee! Thank you kindly for the special mention, Mike and Chris M…. and thanks to everyone else who submitted these for making me LOL this morning. Excel people be funny!

  5. Jeff Weir

    That BatMan one from Rewa, Daniel is pure gold. As is the Wayne’s World one from Szilvia Juhasz (file 11) and Sam’s XLM one.

    But I think my absolute favorite is Kyle Laurendine’s 2nd file. VLOOKUP. YOU CAN’T HANDLE VLOOKUP!

    Teheehee

  6. Oz du Soleil

    D. Pig this was a brilliant contest and adds to other exciting things happening in 2014 for Excel.

    It’s an honor to be declared winner. You had a rough rough job. I agree with Jon. I don’t know how you picked just 3 winners.

  7. Ghazanfar Abidi

    Yay, got an honourable mention!

    Szilvia Juhasz’s Conspiracy Keanu is genius! Some good stuff all round..
