Comment Contest Update

50 Quokka Facts: Smiling, Baby-Flinging, Selfie Kings ...

G’day! The Board of Reagents here at Quokka University has voted unanimously, 1-0, to change the goal of this blog’s current comment contest to 65,000.

Well, why not? It was 64,000 at first–and then followed five weeks of non-stop computer problems, including loss of internet access. That slowed down the comments but good!

Anyhow, it’ll be more fun to do it, now that the mess has been cleaned up and we can find more interesting things to talk about. So with the goal moved to 65,000, that means we have about 13 hundred comments to go. Let’s see how fast we can do it.

The prize is still an autographed copy of one of Lee’s books. I advised him to make it $65,000, but you know how cheap he is. He won’t even shell out for a bicycle.

Then again, one of those Fli-back toys–you know: wooden paddle, rubber ball on a rubber string–would make a great prize.

Maybe I can get him to go for it.

  1. Oooh, yes, I want a paddle ball! I loved those when I was a kid. Is that going to another one of Quokka U’s varsity sports?

    1. Come to think of it, there’s no reason why I couldn’t offer an autographed fli-back as a prize. It’d be something different.

  2. Whatever you decide is fine with me. I just like the excitement of seeing how it all turns out.

  3. I want a book – I’m thinking positively. Those paddle boards were a blast. They were a good way to teach coordination to the young. Pogo Sticks were good for learning balance, but then again a bit on the dangerous side.

    1. You should’ve seen me on my pogo stick when I was 12! If my mother had ever seen the tricks I did, it would’ve been no more pogo stick.
