G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going and there are prizes to be won. We’re shooting for Comment No. 65,000, with just under a thousand left to go. And the winner gets–

A fly-back!

Or you can have an autographed copy of Lee’s book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. (It has giant hyenas in it!) Don’t bother asking for a bicycle. Believe me, I’ve tried.

All comments are eligible, with just these few exceptions: comments that are abusive to anybody on this site; comments that drop the f-bomb; commercials disguised as comments; and inane Far Left Crazy stuff . Other than that, anything goes.

And need I add that if we can get the viewership back up to where it was all year until July and now August came along, we’ll be saving my job?

Don’t Forget the Comment Contest

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

Hey, everybody! Don’t forget the comment contest! We’re aiming for 64,000 comments and I’m in charge of it. I, Byron the Quokka!

Admit it: July was a disaster for this blog. If it had been a business, it’d now be out of business. A thousand views less than July of 2019. And it looks like August is coming out of the starting gate with a sackful of bricks on its back.

So come on, now, let’s light it up again! We have just over 63,000 comments, which means there are less than a thousand comments to go.

To recap the rules, all comments are eligible except for: 1) any comments abusive to other readers on the site; 2) any containing profanity; 3) commercials disguised as comments (somebody’s always trying that); 4) comments that are just too inane to bother with. Other than that, anything goes. And whoever posts Comment No. 64,000 wins the prize.

What prize? you ask.

Well, I wanted to make it $64,000, but of course Lee won’t listen to me and that’s why his blog is in trouble (he blames Verizon’s 3-week-long internet outage, but who knows?)–so the prize will be an autographed copy of His Mercy Endureth Forever. Or an earlier book in the series, if you want.

Well, what’re you waiting for? Start commenting!

 

Comment Contest: Only 59 to Go

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, trying to get this blog going while Lee sits in traffic–

Big news about the comment contest: only 59 to go! That’s right, 59 more comments pushes us up to 47,000, and whoever posts No. 47,000 wins an autographed copy of one of Lee’s books, he’s too cheap to offer a bicycle.

Have I mentioned the rules? Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing profanity or blasphemy; ads disguised as comments, like we couldn’t see through that; and comments just too ridiculous for words. Other than that, anything goes.

(By cracky, that man has a positive gift for getting stuck in traffic. You never see that happen here on Rottnest Island.)

Don’t Forget the Comment Contest

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!

Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–

“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”

My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.

So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.

(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to make a hash of it.)

Comment Contest: Only 50 Left to Go!

Byron the Quokka has found another bicycle which he wants to offer as the prize to whoever wins our current comment contest. Sorry, Byron, it’s not our bike to give away. The best we can do for a prize is an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation.

At the moment we have 43,950 comments–just 50 shy of 44,000, just 50 shy of a winner.

The contest is open to everyone, and all comments are eligible except for the following: any comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing profanity or blasphemy; commercials thinly disguised as comments (shame on you!); and comments that are just too inane to be published. Other than that, anything goes.

I’ve got to hand it to Byron: he’s done a good job of running this contest. Who knew quokkas could be such capable administrators? But I don’t think he understands how expensive it would be for me to be giving away bicycles. Money does not loom large in any quokka’s way of life.

Comment Contest: Unbearable Excitement

See the source image

Byron the quokka is about ready to jump out of his skin with excitement. Well, he does take these things to heart. Ever since I made him in charge of the comment contest, he can hardly sit still.

There are a mere 127 comments left to go before someone posts No. 44,000 and wins the contest–and an autographed copy of The Temptation. Byron keeps checking because he wants to make the announcement. Unfortunately, the bicycle he wanted to give away as a prize belonged to someone else who has since gone home with it.

Everyone can play and all comments are eligible, with only these exceptions: comments abusive of anybody on this site; comments containing blasphemy or f-bombs; commercials disguised as comments; and, of course, comments too blindingly stupid to be published. Other than that, anything goes!

Comment Contest: Halfway!

See the source image

Well, we’ve got those first thousand comments out of the way, and that means the comment contest is halfway to a winner. We’re shooting for 44,000 comments, and now we’ve got 43,000 and change. Whoever posts Comment No. 44,000 will be the winner!

Ah! But what will the winner win? An autographed copy of The Temptation. I was hoping to be able to offer one of those magic rings that make you invisible, but I can’t seem to find the guy who had it last.

Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible, except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity (sorry, liberals); ads disguised as comments; or comments simply to jejeune to bother with. Other than that, anything goes.

So c’mon out there, let’s get chatting! Like, some of you are here every day and have yet to post a comment. Don’t be shy. Reader input is what makes this blog go.

Ooh-Ooh! Less Than 400 Comments to Go!

See the source image

Just letting you know–we are nearing the climax of our current Comment Contest, with only 326 more needed to reach the magic 40,000-comment mark.

Magic? What’s magical about it? Well, heck, don’t you remember? You get turned into a rodent if you win! That’s if I can swing it. Otherwise, the winner will have to settle for an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, when it comes out, which should be very soon.

Again, everyone can play and all comments are eligible, with just the following exceptions: comments abusive to anybody else on this site, those containing profanity or blasphemy, ads disguised as comments, and comments that are just too mutton-headed to bother with.

Comment Contest… Counting Down

See the source image

Would you believe it? In our quest to post 40,000 comments, we have a mere 600 to go! The readers here should be able to do that standing on their heads. Although it would be easier to do, sitting down.

Ah! And what’s the prize for posting Comment No. 40,000? Well, it was going to be an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, which should be published pretty soon. But now, if I can swing it…

From the picturesque fjords of Norway! a genuine, live baby Tyrannosaurus rex! Pictured above, and pictures don’t lie. Just ask any TV noozie. The little girl in the picture is actually someone famous, disguised as a little girl. I am not at liberty to reveal her identity, but you know famous people never lie.

All comments are eligible, except: those of abuse of anyone else on this site; any comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials disguised as comments; remarks too inane to bother with.

 

February: Let Slip the Dogs of… the Comment Contest!

February is the shortest month, but it just may be long enough to find a winner in our latest comment contest.

Shooting for the milestone of Comment No. 40,000, we currently have 39,186, which means only 814 left to go. The tension, the drama, the excitement! And the winner gets to be a rodent!

Oops, didn’t mean to say that. The reader who posts No. 40,000 will win an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 11, The Temptation, which is just about ready to be released for publication. Everyone is eligible!

All comments are eligible, too, except for the following: comments abusive of anyone else on this site; comments containing profanity or blasphemy (I know that lets out a lot of liberals, but I can’t help it: let them clean up their act, if they can); commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to be published. Anything else goes.
