So You Think You Can Write Romance?

Rosetta Stone, a "leading provider of technology-based language learning solutions," whatever the hell that means, has announced a contest "seeking entries from language-loving fans to use their imaginations to tell the next chapter of the Farm Boy and Italian supermodel's love story."  Here's the 411 from the Rosetta Stone website:
Entering the contest is easy but winning is partly up to you. Make your story the fan favorite by urging family, friends and even strangers to vote for your story online as soon as you post it! All submissions will be voted on by the general public. Visit http://www.rosettastone.com/farmboy to submit your video, photos or written story. The contest will run January 8th – January 29th and all submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on January 29th.
Of course, Ian Frazier of The New Yorker already came up with one version that's definitely worth checking out: "Mi Chiamo Stan."  I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge when he sets the bar so high.
