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).

    Kevin Rudd gives a preview of the daily Parliament Magic Show to Senator Conroy that's due to launch with the NBN.

    Rudd reveals to Conroy that his phone utilises the latest "wifi" Internet technology, and that it works up too *that* far away from the router. Conroy enters state of shock and disbelief. [Not in picture: Lifehacker editors cackling themselves with laughter]

    KR: I'm telling you Stephen, there's an app for dealing with the opposition.
    SC: It obviously wasn't working for you.

    This is not the Droid you're looking for.

    Kevin: I thought it stood for Hands Touch Cleavage, you know?
    Stephen: KEVIN - NO, it's a phone!! A great, great phone.

    Stephen and Kevin have an awkward moment during question time:

    KR: Stephen, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
    SC: " I think so Kevin, but...... us politicians, were not meant to think...."

    I was in New York the other day, and Senator Stevens said the US tubes are “this big”, how big will our Australian NBN tubes going to be ??

    Rudd: "and then I called the number on the ad, told them I was a pensioner and they gave me a free set top box."
    Conroy: "hehe... Dumbasses..."

      My bad about posting more then once, feel free to delete the two extra ones.

    Rudd: As I said, I wanted a Education Revolution.
    Conroy: Well, we blew our entire budget on those crappy netbooks.
    Rudd: ...

    I know it's hard to believe Stephen but with my new HTC Sensation XE I am never caught empty handed.

    Conroy: Oh my god bro that strip bar was so awesome...
    Rudd: I know bro, That ladies... I swear they were this big...
    (proceeds with bro fist)

    Seriously, the chinese politicians were given bundles of cash this big from the telco's!
    So you should be able to get double that from Telstra, at least!!

    Rudd: You don't know what they've got is sensation, extreme one ...
    Conroy: Oh no!!! Did they find NBN at the bar ?

    "and then i said: Steve! how about a bigger iPod for the stupider gullible people? australias full of them, make it like this big and charge people heaps for it, we'll be rich!"
    "no way!"
    "yeah! and then he was like: thats a great idea, but julia already came up with that one, we're going to have to let you go.
    And thats the real reason why i'm no longer PM"

      my bad, didnt see the 30 word rule

    Conroy: It took ten technicians to set up your internets at home?!?

    Ooh. So it's a NETWORK we're building. I thought is was about broad elastic bands or something.

    Kevin: You're selling internet censorship the wrong way, Stephen. In China, they call it 'massaging the truth'. You see, like this...

    Kevin: Me and Murdoch made the deal at that club in New York. I said, "I'll give you the Australia Network, Rupert - but only if I'm allowed a squeeze."

    SC: For the last time Kevin, I'm not going to guess which hand you swype with!

    Rudd: '...and so the crabs I got from her were like THIS BIG !!!'

    Conroy: 'Whoa, dude! You shoulda worn a filter, um, i mean dinger.'

    Rudd: 'For Realz bro. I should try that NBN portal of yours'

    Conroy: 'For serious? Mate, its chockaz full o scams and spams.'

    Rudd: 'OMG! I was like, this close! For realz!

    Rudd: ‘…and so the crabs I got from her were like THIS BIG !!!’
    Conroy: ‘LOLZ! Dude, you shoulda worn one of my filters'

    Kevin 24/7: 'So I grab Julia like this, thinking I'm in a stripclub, the next day I'm out of office.'
    Ahoy it's Conroy: 'Was it was becouse of the way she acts around the cameras?

    KR - We need to make a tablet this big !!
    SC - First you become prime minister then we can talk about that.
