Win An HTC Sensation XE With Lifehacker

We're in a generous mood as Christmas approaches, so we'll be giving away some awesome prizes all week. First up: thanks to HTC, we've got an HTC Sensation XE Android phone, valued at $999, for one lucky reader. So how can you win this phone?

The Sensation XE is nicely kitted out, and it should be even more impressive come 2012 when it gets upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich. But you don't have to wait until then to win the handset we're giving away.

To enter, just write a caption (in 30 words or less) for this picture of Senator Stephen Conroy and Kevin Rudd:

The caption we judge the most amusing will be the winner. Extra points for suitable technology references, and we won't give a prize to "And the knife was this big", because that's far too obvious. Entries close Wednesday December 14 at 10am, so get cracking. Full terms and conditions here (and the handset as it ships is locked to Vodafone, if you were wondering).

    Rudd: And so I grabbed Julia by the....
    Conroy interrupts: NO WAY YOU DIDN'T?!

    Ruddy: "So I was grabbing this droid's ass at the stripclub and then I got hit in the face by an Ice Cream Sandwich thrown by one of the Apple strippers"

    Conroy "Nooooo.. No NBN for them!"

    Kevin, Kevin, Guess what, I just got a new Android tablet, which is smaller then yours!
    What! is it this big?

    "And the Sensation XE was this big" :)

    No Kevin, "Android" not "Handroid"

    "Don't look now, but there's a guy behind us with a BLUE tie - not red. Pssht must be an android user!"

    I’m in love with Siri and if she was real, I bet she would have huge… brains”

    .. and then i said to him "And now, young Skywalker... you will die."

    Rudd: "Look, I'm telling you, we need fibre!"
    Conroy: "-the hell does cereal have to do with this? I thought it was just a series of tubes?"

    "WIFI, its like the NBN, but no wires! MAGIC!"
    "No way!"

    "I've seen it myself, the internet is about this big"

    Kevin: "In China, the inter-tubes are *this big*, just to cope with the Great Firewall overheads. They say our NBN just won't cut it."

    KR: The internet is not a big truck, its a series of tubes.
    SC: No way!

    "I asked the IT guys at Foreign Affairs about cloud computing... they told me we've got a cloud that's, like, at least this big!"

    Rudd: I bought one of those spam and scam nets Kogan is selling. Covers my computer like this. Now I am fully protected from the evils of the inter-portals!

    Conroy: You...but...not even I believe the shit that comes outta my mouth.

    Rudd: And when you're not looking... I'm going to grab your NBN with two hands...
    Conroy: Don't you dare touch my NBN!

    Rudd: The IT Gurus showed me this little black box and told me it contained the internet. I then dropped it by accident.

    Conroy: No way.. all of the the internet is contained in a little black box?

    Conroy: Who's the fool in the blue tie?
    Rudd: Some iPhone user, they used to be in the majority.
    Conroy: Red FTW.
    Rudd: Pull a finger, any finger...

    Caption: Kevin Rudd and Stephen Conroy argue about the ratio between the size of the internet and the amount of bullshit Kevin got as Prime Minister.

    KR: Do I need to indicate left or right when I go through an intertube?
    SC: This is why we booted you.
