GTA IV swag contest results are in: What does N.O.O.S.E. really mean?

Last week, I didn’t know what the letters in N.O.O.S.E. — Grand Theft Auto IV‘s version of S.W.A.T. — stood for. Today I have a better idea. We received a boat load of submissions in our “GTA IV Swag” contest — some funny, some serious, and a few were actually correct.

Many of you have “oral” and “sex” on the brain — we’re not sure why. But we were able to confirm with Rockstar that N.O.O.S.E. actually stands for “National Organization of Security Enforcement. As of yesterday, three of you were actually correct — jakethebob, youruglyclone, and impulsive. Congratulations, we threw you into the random drawing along with our five favorite guesses. 

Hit the jump to see our favorites, and see who’s going to be getting the GTA IV swag bag.

In no particular order, here are our five favorites: 

Daynger777:
Narcoleptic Otters Own Square-Enix

You killed it with an accompanying Photoshop. Mad win here.

myaimistrue:
Narcoleptic Oprah On Sex Express

For some reason, the staff really liked this one. Do we really, really want Oprah — narcoleptic or not — on a sex express? I’ll pass.

reevolution:
No. Oh. Oh. Shit. Eek!

This is pretty much how I felt while N.O.O.S.E. was chasing me.  

B-Radicate:
Niero Operates One Sexy Enterprise

Another staff favorite, likely because it strokes their egos. 

Toneman:
Never gonna give you up
Oh never gonna let you down
Oh never gonna run around and desert you
So never gonna make you cry
nEver gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

This was a stretch, but dude Rick Rolled our contest.

And the winner, as randomly chosen by a drawing from the GTA IV baseball cap, is …
