You start "with roses are red"

But that being said

Violets are actually violet

No matter, the loot is in the basket

Let's hurry on over to the thread



We've had a GREAT run with over 14.000 views and 23 comments, lots of participation and a good share of fun. It's time to pick the 3 winners:


The much-coveted and well-deserved, by vote of the Live Community, #1 spot goes to @vsys_remo! A well-deserved win, and an epic loot crate that will be hand delivered by a Palo Alto Networks ranger chalk in an Osprey VTOL (or Fred the delivery guy, depending on availability).


Behold and feast your eyes upon the masterpiece he created:


Against the most evil threats your Palo will stay
To protect you and your company all night and day
So on St. Patricks day you can take a break
From security, malware and the "oil from the snake"
But only if you configured everything the right way ;)

Second place goes to none other than the man himself, for sharing some great words of wisdomn and also providing geographical information and visual stimuli! Congratulations @StPatrick! You too will be visited by a Palo Alto Networks seal team in their Stryker, or Fred, if they're too busy mopping up snakes:


St.Patrick used Traps to catch snakes
his Security Profiles could spot fakes
When his job was done
it was time for fun
he went off to swim the Guinness lakes

The third and final spot goes to @MickBall for ending it all with an epic mic drop! Your loot crate will be deliverd by the Palo Alto Networks ninjas, or Andy (Fred's coworker: can't have Fred flying all over the place, he has a wife and kids)


A spammy post followed by a perfectly timed mic drop:

St Patrick was working on the greenhouse effect
When his browser failed to interconnect
So he added some ram
Sent out some spam
And then reconfigured his globalprotect

BOOM! hash tag smiley face lol.
And now, not to worry
We've got more loot, so don't be sorry
