Grand Prize Winner!

Is This You?

(click to enlarge)

Because if it is...

YOU ARE MY 10,000TH VISITOR!!!

And - if you would like to be featured as my "grand prize reader", simply send me a short bio of yourself along with a picture - and I will publish a flattering post all about you!

Just imagine how your life will change with your new-found 15 milliseconds of fame. For a fleeting moment you will enjoy such celebrity perks as...
- eating at the finest Arby's - WITHOUT A RESERVATION!
- reading a book featured in the Oprah book club
- renting a limo for your next visit to the theatre cinema
- wearing clothes you didn't purchase on sale

The list goes on and on, but be careful - these perks are not to be taken lightly. Many a common person has been ruined for life after suffering from the spoils of fame.

So if you are secure enough to handle it, go ahead and grab the brass ring and run with it. All you have to do is reveal yourself to the world, and the world will be yours!

But just remember... like Uncle Ben said in Spider-Man:

"With great power comes great responsibility"

This picture was taken aboard ship in 1945. I stood the watch for you for six years, so that you could enjoy the benefits of freedom. If you are one who hates our country and our military, why are so many trying to get in.

Mom Thumb said...

Damn, I was so close! I love Arby's, and you can never get a good table in there.

Carla said...

Is that Uncle Ben, the one with the rice?

yellojkt said...

Not me. If I had known the swag bag was so rich I would have spent all day refreshing the page.

Heather said...

Mmm. I love Arbys too but cannot eat there because I am already over the weight limit to set foot in there with your head held high.

Tell me you're holding a consolation prize if the true winner doesn't come forth...

Bill said...

I guess I should clarify by saying I did not mean you as YOU, but the long list of people that cannot see anything good in America.

Jennine said...

Sure. I get a job which reduces my View From The Cloud stalking time and some other schmuck gets the 10,000th visitor award!

Can't I just wrestle number 9,999 for the title?

Harmonica Man said...

Jennine - As far as I can tell you came in at 9,981 and again at 10,019. You do get kudos though for being the next blog that person visited - as you can see by the "Out Click".

Mitch McDad said...

Ahhh...I don't like Arby's anyway. And what the hell is Bill taking about???

rick said...

Ten thousand? is that for real? Unbelievable!

Harmonica Man said...

mitch - We've been wondering that about Bill for years ;-)

Actually, I think he just misunderstood what I meant when I said to "send me a short bio of yourself along with a picture - and I will publish a flattering post all about you" because he sent me a picture to go along with that comment.

Darn it! I was so hoping to have that 15 millisecond of fame too!!

Karl said...

Dammit! I knew getting behind in reading blogs would cause me to miss out on a grand prize.

Harumph.

Diane said...

I'm just a lurker. I don't have a picture and I don't have a blog.

But you have me as your 10,000th visitor..

Harmonica Man said...

Well then - congratulations Diane!

And thanks for your months of loyal readership. I've seen your visits many times before but since you don't have a blog, I haven't been able to follow them back to say hi. So therefore....

"Hi!"

Now, print this out and take it to your local Arbys. I guarantee you'll be able to get a table - with no wait.
