Winners!

The results are in! The winners of the Custom T-Shirt Contest have been selected. I want to thank everyone who participated. Thank you so much for playing along! I was floored by all of your creative suggestions for customized shirts.

The winners are:

Cameron of Get The Stink Off. He posted multiple times until he landed the coveted #5 spot. Toward the end of the contest, Cameron went down a shame spiral for technically cheating to reach the fifth comment spot by posting three times in a row. He hung his head low and offered to withdraw from the competition. I wasn't hearing any of it. I assured him that the other players were just jealous of his ingenuity and upset that they hadn't thought of it first. It is my long held belief that if you're not cheating, you're not trying. Way to go, Cameron! You won a t-shirt and my adoration for your take no prisoners attitude!

DeeMarie of My Life in a Nutshell also snagged herself a custom tee. The contest idea was her brain child so I thought it fitting she be rewarded too. In the span of about an hour, I received four emails, seven tweets and one registered letter from her demanding that I host a contest. I love me a gal with tenacity.

The final winner, as promised, was selected by our son, Henry in the most scientific and delicious manner we could imagine. First, I numbered a piece of paper 1 through 37 (the number of contestants). Then I placed an M&M on each number.



I told Henners that his decision would determine who the winner of a special shirt would be. For a while there the pressure was just too much for him.



Carefully he selected the M&M of his choice.

The number 32 was revealed. Who would it be?

It's Heinous of Irregularly Periodic Ruminations! Congratulations! You have just won your very own customized shirt! I showed Henry a picture of Heinous online and he was so excited that he looked like a real-life cowboy.

Henry then asked if he could have more M&Ms. I didn't see any harm so I obliged him.

But things started to take a turn. He just kept eating and eating those little candies. I was worried he would be up all night and bouncing off the walls from a sugar high.



But twenty minutes later, our little guy passed out from sheer exhaustion.


Congratulations to Cameron, DeeMarie and Heinous! Remember folks, in life, we should treat everybody like a winner. These three are just bigger winners, that's all.

And I'm also second. That one pic of Henry is the best stink eye I've ever seen. Kudos Henry! Sure it was probably just a big 'ack!' face before he passed out into his sugar induced coma, but it was still funny. Congrats to the winners even though you're not me so I hate you. I hope the shirts make you itch in spots you can't reach. Wait, that makes me sound like a sore loser...

Congratulations!

Alright, seriously, every decision for the rest of my life is going to be made by numerically categorized M&Ms.

Tracy Lynn said...

Well, that's just great. Now I'm gonna be naked. Invest heavily in the brain bleach, that's all I'm saying.

HeatherPride said...

I love the last picture of Henry with his entire face in the M&M bowl. I did that once at work and they threatened to send me to HR. What a bunch of losers.

Bee said...

Awwww how cute!

Next contest, I'm coming prepared with a bag full of M&Ms.

Congrats to the winners!

Casey said...

I feel like a big fat loser. Love the pictures, Henry is even cute when he's covered in chocolate. Actually that makes him cuter.

Ron said...

Congrats to everyone, but that picture of his face in the M&Ms is so funny.

blissfullycaffeinated said...

That's the best way to pick a number that I've ever seen. I continue to be humbled and astounded by your genius ways.

Also? I have passed out in a bowl of M&M's like that before. They were peanut though. Because I like nuts. (That's what she said!)

And to the winners: Damn you all!!!

The Stiletto Mom said...

Sigh...another dream crushed. Also? I will never be first on this blog as long as Captain Dumbass is running around...jeez.

Maggie May said...

Ha!!! Henry is just as funny as Mommy I see!!!

Heinous said...

I'd like to thank everyone involved in this prestigious award. Jen, Jeremy, Reese, and most of all Henry. Now I'm torn between "Haven't ever seen Titanic" and "Don't make me stalk your blog."

I'm all giddy now.

DeeMarie said...

Woo hoo!! Who knew that stalking to almost harrassment would win me a shirt for a contest I forced you to have! I'm all a-twitter (and I'll be twitter-stalking you later). I have a few ideas I'll be sending you- you make the final choice. Thanks again for letting me brow-beating you into a contest!! You're the best, Jenbo!!!!!

Rhea said...

I love your M&M method. lol Great photos!!

Jenni Jiggety said...

I believe THAT is how M&Ms are meant to be enjoyed. Especially peanut ones.

I missed your contest. Crap. But congrats to the winners!

Trish said...

Somehow, I missed the t-shirt contest. I have no idea how that happened. Hmmm.

Ah well ... can't be helped now. But congrats to the winners!

Also: I understand chocolate covered toddler is a delicacy in some parts. Yum!

Cameron said...

That's right people --- cheaters do win!! You were taught wrong all these years. Thanks jenboglass!!

goodfather said...

I have to agree with Captain Dumbass, the sinkeye pic is just awesome.

I'm frantically trying to scrub the giant 'L' from my forehead. It's not a tiny 'w'. It's A GIANT 'L'.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Man! This is so not fair! The contest is rigged! I mean, come on! M&M's? Everyone knows regulation counting candies are SKITTLES!!!! (Humph.)(Grumble.)
Ooh, a cheeto!

beth said...

Dive bombing head first into a bowl of M&M's looks like so much fun! I just love kids.

Khadra said...

congrats to the winners!

for a different kind of girl said...

Once more, I come here and lay the awesome at your feet.

I think the nation should use Henry's technique for selecting ou next President, because, no matter who wins, we're all winners, because who doesn't love M&M's?!

Wendy said...

Omg! The one of him with his whole face in the bowl of M&Ms is just priceless! I love it!

HarryJack's Mom said...

Man, oh MAN, look at those gorgeous blues .... with that sweet, funny face and those eyes! You are in t-r-o-u-b-l-e, girl. Happy weekend!

Colepack said...

Sammanthia said...

He is a doll, even with M&M's all over his face. My 3 year old is sporting gum on his neck that's been there for over a gay because I can't get the stuff off. It's gotten dirty and I almost made him wear a scarf today when we went out in 89 degree weather just cause it looks so bad. At least M&M's can be wiped off. Sigh.

ali said...

Well, I DID know about the contest and I still did not win! Hmph. I'm going to go drown my sorrows in a bowl of M&Ms. Henry style.

Sammanthia said...

Ooops.... "day" not "gay". I need spellchecker.;)

Andrea said...

All you winners suck ass! I was hoping I woulda won a cool shirt made by my favoritist new stalker jen but cute lil ole Henry just had to pick the wrong number didn't he? Ugh... Tell him if he picks the RIGHT number next time, meaning whatever number I end up to be, that his sweet, loving, dear auntie Andrea will buy him 20 bags of M & M's. I'm in Utah so I could totally bribe him fer reals! lol

All right, I'm done being bitter. I guess I'll be happy for you suckers, er, I mean, lucky winners!

Miss Jack said...

Cool! I love contests. I had a little one of my own today. Check it out.

I think I'm going to have more of them. I liked it. I need to get a little more creative though.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Wait just a damn minute! How come I didn't win??!!

Oh yeah...I didn't enter.My bad.

Ringleader said...

Nothing like diving face first into a bowl of m&m's- love the deranged, maniacal, high on sugar face (that's what I look like after my 1st Diet Coke of the day BTW). But, back to his choices... (he did NOT "choose the right"...people)Harumph! What about meeeeeeee?(eeeeeeee!)-eeeeee! (Here's where I am frieking out like Julia Roberts going into a diabetic coma in Steel Magnolias, and my husband quickly places the straw from a Big Gulp Diet Coke in my mouth to calm me down).
