And the winner is...

As promised last week, I will now announce the winner of the "What post did VE guest-write for me?" contest.

But before I do, I just want to take a second to send out a very sincere THANK YOU to everyone who Stumbled, Dugg, searched, talked about and posted my banner on their blogs. We are already receiving web visits from all over the country and the traffic is growing all the time. So yes my friends... it looks like my evil plan is working!

Now, on to the contest results...

As you know, I held a contest last week for you to guess which post VE secretly wrote while you weren't looking. The responses were all over the board:

A. Breaking News - Scientists cloudy over new classification - 3 votes
B. The One You Didn't Find - 1 vote
C. Mr. Know-It-All - 3 votes
D. Best tasting bands? - 3 votes
E. Hmmm, I think I'd rather be awake - 1 vote

I was a little surprised that Mr. Know-It-All received so many votes. But then again, that is one feature where I like to tap that one little section of my brain that was damaged when Larry Musolf threw a rock at my head when I was 10, so I can see why you would think it was something VE would have written.

But the actual answer is B - the story about the secret song on The Receders new CD.

And the only one to get it right was...


Congratulations Jacki. You are the winner of the actual Receders CD mentioned in the story... secret song included! Just send me your address and I'll get it out right away.

So thank you all for playing. I thought that was pretty fun... but also a little scary. I mean just look how many people can't tell the difference between me and VE!

Yay! Thank you! After reviewing all the posts again, that is the only one that didn't seem completely like you.

Now I am off to send you my address.

VE said...

That Jackie...she knows us too well! I don't know how we could be mistaken for each other...you're much younger than me...by a whole week! And I don't go in for any of that crazy stuff you post...

Ed said...

This is priceless. Nice job!

Michelle said...

So I'm guessing you wouldn't believe me if I told you that I ALMOST picked that one, right? ;)

Roger said...

I would have guessed that! :) Not really, besides I was playing catch up on all my feeds last week, so I probably missed the contest. Bummer.

Let me know if I was too over the top in my commercial endorsement for you. I can tone it down, if need be. Or even ramp it up more, if that's what you want. :)

Are you sure, or is this another trick?

rick said...

So does that mean you actually listen to the Red Hot Chile Peppers?

Jeff said...

jacki - Really? You can tell what is "completely like me?" That's pretty good... I can't even do that.

VE - Yeah old man... say, what did you get me for my birthday?

ed - Priceless maybe... but not prizeless!

michelle - Wow, that's weird. I ALMOST sent you a CD!

roger - Your endorsement is awesome. Thank you! I wouldn't ramp it up any more or I'll have to start paying you. Or is that what you're aiming for? ;-)

anon - I dunno... maybe this was written by you.

rick - No, that's for real. Somehow "Hump de Bump" ended up on my mp3 player and before I had a chance to get rid of it, it grew on me!
you gotta... bump de hump you gotta...

Nice shout out from Roger! cannot

Congrats to Jacki!

Now I don't know who to trust. Are all my favorite bloggers going to be switching around on me?
