Booby Prize High Quality
A booby prize is a joke prize usually given in recognition of a terrible performance or last-place finish. A person who finishes last, for example, may receive a booby prize such as a worthless coin. Booby prizes are sometimes jokingly coveted as an object of pride.
Maria has left a letter in her Saint Mark's apartment, stating she has put herself up for first prize in a motorcycle race around Chinatown and Callahan Point. Because her risky behavior may upset an already paranoid Salvatore, Toni is told to "save [her] ass" by winning a two-lap checkpoint race against three competitors on Sanchez's.
A booby flies by and checks out the WHOI Hawaii Ocean Time-series Station (WHOTS III) shortly after researchers and technicians deployed it off of Hawaii in June 2006 from the research vessel Revelle (visible in the background). A WHOI research team, including physical oceanographer Al Plueddemann, is headed back to sea this week to recover the buoy and set a new one.

A Booby prize is a prize of low value or a joke prize. It is sometimes given for a terrible performance or last-place finish. Booby prizes are sometimes humorously and jokingly seen as an object of pride as being noticed for doing something special - losing or coming in last-place. A booby prize is usually awarded and received with pleasant humor and understanding, it is not seen as a sign of disgrace.
You visit your grandma in Los Angeles, and she insists upon taking you to a game show that she enjoys watching on television. By a strange course of fate, you end up on stage as a contestant. The host of the show tells you that behind one of the three doors in front of you lies a brand new Cadillac Escalade. Behind two of the other doors is a booby prize.
He asks you to make your choice. You choose door number one. "Contestant chooses door number one!" announces the host. One of the hostesses walks over to stand between door number one, and door number 2. "Sherry, lets show our contestant what's behind door number TWO!" says the host. The hostess opens door number two, which contains a booby prize (in this situation, we assume that the show always opens another door that contains a booby prize when the contestant makes his selection). 041b061a72
