Where is everybody today? Dudes! Don’t you know there are less than 100 comments to go in our current comment contest?
According to a bona fide board-certified charlatan, Dr. Name Withheld, a member of the International College of Charlatans, whoever wins this comment contest, by posting Comment No. 15,000 on this blog, “will embark upon a course of rare good fortune that will very shortly lead to the acquisition of fabulous wealth, world-wide fame, and a really nice ham casserole.”
Just in case my charlatan is wrong, the backup plan is for the winner to win an autographed copy of one of my books.
The contest is open to everyone in the world, and all comments are eligible, except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else on this site, comments that contain the f-bomb, other profanity, or blasphemy–not that I’m going to publish anything like that. Also ruled out are commercials thinly disguised as comments, and comments simply too inane to bother with.
Hey, this morning’s viewership is way, way down! Please tell your friends and family members about this blog and urge them to visit it. Use threats if necessary.
For new readers: listen, lots of readers have won these contests so far. The next winner could be you!
