Apparently, Loop fans know “This Town” like the backs of their hands.

We’ve gotten some truly funny entries already to the Loop’s contest, in which we asked you to finish this sentence: “You are so ‘This Town’ if…”

(This contest comes with a tip of the cowboy hat to the Nashville Scene, which has a long-running “You are so Nashville if…” contest, as well as to Mark Leibovich’s book “This Town,” which chronicles the doings of the Beltway insiders of a certain name-dropping, horse-trading, back-slapping kind.)

That said, we want more of your clever observations and withering witticisms! The contest closes at midnight, Aug. 20, so there’s still time to enter. Just send your best ideas to Please include your name, profession, mailing address and T-shirt size (M, L or XL), in case you’re a winner. You must include a phone number to be eligible.

Remember, winners score highly coveted Loop T-shirts — perfect for sporting to that next book party.
