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.
