G’day, it’s me, Byron the Quokka, with a super-important announcement!
We now have just over 45,000 comments on this blog, and Lee says I can start another comment contest as long as I don’t promise that the winner gets a bicycle.
So OK, new comment contest, with the finish line at 47,000, which means that the next contest will be for No. 50,000, a real milestone–and those dumb wombats said we’d never make it! But first this contest. Whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins the prize.
I don’t know what he’s got against giving away bicycles. [Editor’s Note: Byron, it wasn’t ours to give! How many times do I have to tell you that?] So I guess an autographed copy of his new book, The Temptation–and if you’ve already got it, you can ask for a different book.
I don’t know. A bag of pretzels and a can of Foster’s, that might really get people hopping…
And by the way, hopping is better than walking. Ask any quokka.
