Byron: ‘Last Call for Carol Contest!’

See the source image

G’day, everybody! Byron the Quokka here; and that’s me up there, singing, but I can’t tell you what carol I’m singing because that might skew the contest. (Note the bicycle in the background! I keep telling him, offer a bike as the prize, if you want people to play. But does he listen?)

Well, Monday we’re wrapping it up, our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest. And the carol that got 44 views on Dec. 9 is still way out front in the lead. No, I can’t tell you what it was, or who posted it. Everybody here on Rottnest Island knows, but we’re not talking.

Things are mighty quiet around this blog today. I guess a lot of you are tuckered out from New Year’s. My family spent New Year’s Eve wearing party hats, blowing on noise-makers, and playing Clue. Poor Uncle Pottsy. He was Professor Plum and wound up having to accuse himself–and it turned out to be wrong. He felt like such a doo-dah.

Well, look, I’m supposed to get you folks excited about this contest, and can I help it if there’s only so much excitement to go around? Can’t be excited all the time!

The winner will be announced on Monday. Be there, or be square!

  1. Mark Steyn says Ireland does not go back to work until January 3rd because they need an extra day to recuperate from the New Years Eve celebrations. This could be a tongue-in-cheek saying, knowing Mark Steyn’s sense of humor.

    1. Ireland has just passed a law that says by 2030 you’ll only be allowed to by and drive electric cars–staving off the Climbit Apockerlips, you see.

      Where do these ignoramuses think electricity comes from?

  2. Thanks Byron for the heads up. I will do my level best to be around on Monday for the big event.

  3. If we haven’t already had this one, I just was thinking of “Dearest Lord Jesus” and also “joyful, joyful, we adore thee”. my memory is so bad, I really can’t remember what we have heard and not.

    1. Well, Erlene, we’ve heard a lot of hymns lately, and if we repeat them from time to time, so what? In fact, “Joyful, Joyful” was on my mind last night, and here you are today with it–I take that to mean I ought to post it. And I don’t care if it’s the tenth or twelfth time I’ve done so.
