There's Still Time To Win An Old Sock And Other "Valuable" Prizes!

So far, there have been some excellent entries to my "Millionth Viewer Contest." In fact, as of 10:15 this morning EST, I have received over a hundred and fifty, which is over a thousand in dog entries!

If you haven’t entered yet, you have until 5:45 EST to submit your winning entry answering the question, in ten words or less: “Why are YOU my millionth visitor?”

I’m already hard at work culling through the early submissions, attempting to separate the proverbial wheat from the proverbial chaff. To allow the proverbial cream to rise to the proverbial top. To lead the proverbial horse to the proverbial water and force it to proverbial drink. Etc.

Some helpful tips for those of you still considering submitting entries.

First of all, Jesus references won’t get you very far. As a Jew, invoking the name of the false prophet Jesus Christ only infuriates me and causes my cloven feet to tingle in a most unpleasant way.

Second, reflecting my own work back to me is not going to help your cause. That’s simply recycling my jokes. And while I am, admittedly, hilarious, the effect is somewhat diminished because I’ve heard them all before.

Third, meta entries like “I can win this contest in ten words or less” leave me cold. You’re better than that. And if you’re not better than that, then there's nothing left to be done for you.

So keep those entries coming. I will announce a winner either today or tomorrow. Good luck! There’s still plenty of time to enter and still plenty of old rice to be won.

My life coach says I'm a winner. Believe that.

Susanna

I'm glad you're having fun with this. By the time this contest is over, you'll be up to 2,000,000 hits! That was your plan all along, right? ;-)

Reen

Oh you are too adorable for words!

I'd love to enter but I perform like crap under pressure (and without liquor).

That said, Imma (<--my sister friends taught me that word along with mod sayings like "Deuces to the left", and "Kick rocks", and "Mmm-mm girl, that's a MESS!") sit back and enjoy the comments.

Chris

This website smells like my dick. (My dick smells fantastic.)

I win despite my Southern heritage. I am an anomaly.

Kasper

I'm incredibly lucky.

Wexel

If you had read the bible, you'd pick me.

Amanda

I'm just surprised by how many people that came out of the wood works in hopes of robbing you blind.

Not saying I'm not one of them, but I like to pretend I care more than that.

Red

I will hurt a pony if I do not win.

As a fellow foodie: I'll send you 5 French cheeses that will stink up your house. (Damn, I went over ;-)!)

Oh no! Now people are posting HERE! Now you done it Michael. All kinds of confusion.

I too love seeing how many people crawled out to say hello. That's amazing and all of the comments are hilarious. Your blog never stops giving :)

Can I win because I'm the only one who asked politely?


Also--well done with this little contest, sir. Well done.

Jesus gardens for all his children, other Heidi.
