Byron the Quokka here, mates–and we’ve got a winner for our Bell Mountain trivia contest.
Twenty questions, we asked–and one reader got all twenty right. Why, she couldn’t’ve known Bell Mountain better if she’d spent all her vacations there! All of us quokkas on Rottnest Island are proud of her.
And the winner is… [trumpet fanfare; drum roll]… Heidi! [Orchestra breaks into “They Call Him Mister Touchdown.”]
So, Heidi, you’ve won an autographed book, and all you’ve gotta do is email us your mailing address and tell us which book you want (sorry, Bell Mountain itself is out of stock, have to order more). If you want to hold out for No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever, that’s okay. Just remind us, when the book comes out, which should be sometime next spring.
All twenty questions answered correctly! That should be enough to make you an honorary quokka.
And now I’ve got to dream up another contest, quick, before they get to thinking they don’t need me anymore.
G’day–Byron the Quokka here. And I can’t help feeling wistful because the big 50,000-Comment Contest is over and this will be the last question, No. 20, in the Bell Mountain trivia contest. After this, I don’t know what to do with myself. Suddenly playing Clue solitaire seems kind of unexciting.
Anyhow, here it is, Question No. 20:
What legendary creature led Ryons to the banquet hall of the ancient kings of Obann?
The winner will be the reader with the most right answers out of 20, and that wise and learned individual will get an autographed book. If you have all 11 published titles so far, you can hold out for No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever–which I think will be published in March or April of next year.
I do wish there were another contest coming up…
(Chomp, chomp…) G’day, mates! Sorry for the delay: couldn’t talk with my mouth full. Byron the Quokka here, with good manners–and Question No. 18 in our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. Eighteen! Only three left before we have a winner.
Ready? Here it is?
Who denounced the Thunder King and declared God’s judgment on him–in the Thunder King’s own golden hall, in front of all his mardars?
We still have one reader who’s gotten every question right so far, hasn’t missed one of them. I wonder if that person lives with quokkas. We have that effect on humans.
The winner gets an autographed book and the admiration of all the other readers. You can even hold out for the next book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, if you can wait till sometime next year.
P.S.–Don’t forget the BIG comment contest! Only 344 to go, to reach 50,000! Who will win the official Quokka T-shirt? Crikey, gotta catch my breath! Excitement’s almost too much for me.
G’day! Byron the Quokka here, and we’re going down the home stretch of our Bell Mountain trivia contest. The winner gets an autographed book.
There are twenty questions, and here’s No. 17. Ready?
Who is Jack’s only living blood relative?
Like I told you up front, the questions get harder as they go along. Don’t feel bad–Lee’s wife Patty is really bombing these questions. Of course, any quokka could answer them all–answer ’em correctly, I mean. Even a platypus could answer ’em all, if you don’t count wrong answers.
And don’t forget the Milestone Comment Contest! Post Comment No. 50,000 and win an official Quokka T-shirt.
