Everyone’s a winner in our gross photo contest (except the rat and the bird)

hemorrhoid creamA few weeks back, OK, practically a month ago, we invited readers to submit their best pictures of sidewalk detritus bared by the Great Brooklyn Thaw. (The contest was inspired by our own sighting of a dead rat, an inflated condom and a crumpled hemorrhoid-cream tube, all in one block.) You came, you shot, you sent pics — of dead birds, hypodermic needles, umbrella graveyards, a soundboard thingy, a purple marital aid, and much much more. From this bounty of urban grotesquery comes not a single victor, but a veritable minyan of them. A limited edition Brokelyn t-shirt to all who entered. (You’ll be contacted via Flickr.) Thanks!
