bookofjoe Contest: Name something that vibrates that once didn't


Yes, finally.

Judie Lipsett, doyenne of Gear Diary, a long time ago told me readers love contests.

I believed her but as usual did nothing about it.

Until today.


The winner of this contest will be the person who, in my opinion, submits the most amusing entry.

Remember, this is a G-Rated/Disney-Approved website so if it can't meet that standard, I may love it but you won't win.

This is just the first of what will be an ongoing series of contests open only to bookofjoe readers, the salt of the earth.

The winner, to be announced at this time next week, gets 10 (ten) Caramel Apple Tootsie Pops (above and below), in a 9" x 12" manila envelope personally addressed by me to you, the whole shebang delivered via first class U.S. mail with the "Forever" stamps personally stuck on by me (true, you won't be able to do a DNA analysis on my saliva 'cause you don't have to lick these self-adhesive stamps but my prints will be all over the envelope and contents if you're the forensic type).


I'll prolly also throw in some interesting odds and ends that will amaze and delight.

I'm excited — are you?

To get you warmed up, here are three things that vibrate that once didn't:

• Toothbrushes

• Mascara

• Gillette razors


I'll also post the ones that didn't win.
