G’day! Byron the Quokka here. Look at the neat tennis ball I found! Some careless human lost it, they must think these things grow on trees.
Ah! But I’m here to officially open our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest, beginning–today!
Here’s the rules. The winner is that reader who requests a Christmas carol and, on the day it’s requested and posted, racks up the most views. So if, say, on Dec. 14, Reader A requests “Pat-a-Pan” and gets 24 views for it on that day; but on Dec. 17, Reader B requests “Noel” and gets 29 views for it on that day–well, Reader B would be the winner, unless someone else comes along and does even better.
I think the winner ought to get a tennis ball, I love the way you can pull the hair off them–the tennis balls, not the winner–but I think the prize will be an autographed book.
A Handy Tip: If you’re in one of those Western time zones, try to get your carol request posted early in your day–because those blokes in the Eastern time zones are three hours ahead of you, and they’ll be going to bed while you’re still up. Just trying to level the playing field, dontcha know.
