FLOWBEE CONTEST RESULTS
This was not easy. There were so many fine entries that I had to consult with a panel of distinguished judges consisting of judi, Mrs. Blog, and Mr. Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post. Absolutely nobody agreed on anything. So I have decided that there will be three first prizes, presented below in chronological order.
-- Just press the yellow button for the Man-on-Tap. -- Cat R., at 5:01 p.m.
-- Moments later, Oliver realized he didn't know the first thing about penis-enlargement equipment -- Lou Bricant, 7:38 p.m.
-- Apart from an oddly placed anus, the Alpha Centaurians looked exactly like humans. -- Tony Field, 7:48 p.m.
Congratulations to the winners. Please email judi at the blog with the subject WINNER, and she and you can work out some hideously complex way of choosing and sending the valuable prizes.
As for the rest of you blog folk: many thanks for participating. There were many strong entries, including of course yours, which should have won, and would have won, except that Gene Weingarten detests you personally. Here, in no particular order, are some of the entries I'd like to single out for Honorable Mention:
Jack remained calm, but even the Flowbee couldn't release the squirrel's grip on his head -- Steve (The 24 Guy)
Estimated download time remaining: 45 seconds -- Meanie the Blue
Take one step closer and the honky gets it! -- Dad-O-Lot
When his mother walked in on him using the vacuum cleaner, Randal had to think fast. -- Tony Field
Watch as his love for Barry Manilow increases. -- Alfred
Cuts and styles hair in one easy step, leaving more time for your cousin! -- James Tokarz
Tired of yarmulkes that just won't stay put?
You've tried bobbie pins, hair clips, even staples...
But now with the Permulke®, you'll never go bareheaded again! -- Lairbo
...and after the break... the Brazilian attachment. -- WayneHere
What Happens in shop Class, Stays in Shop class -- Alfred
Alright, Mr. Cruise. What next?? -- Meanie the Blue
Again, thanks to everybody who participated. I feel that, working together, we wasted a huge amount of time. And that is what the Internet is for.
