bookofjoe Contest: We have a winner

I bet you haven't been sleeping well these past few nights, waiting for this post.

The winning entry in last week's contest to "Name something that vibrates that once didn't"... is from lewildbeast, who wrote, "My patient's sigmoid colon, before the 'misplaced' vibrator was surgically removed."

As stipulated, you get 10 (ten) Caramel Apple Pops via first class U.S. mail.

Just give me a mailing address and they'll be on their way.

There were 42 entries posted as comments and a slew more via email.

Some of my favorites that didn't win:

• my car

• dentist chairs

• our refrigerator

• movie theaters

• teething rings

• windshield wipers

• my neighborhood since Metrorail came through

• "my heart, happily, at last, in love"

• Schrodinger's cat

• "tween girls, once you give them tickets to see the Jonas brothers"

• pillows

• cribs

• dog collars

• Harry Potter's broom

Flautist, stand down — I'll deal with you and your issues out back....

OK jo, my apologies. You did have a point, since contest paramaters dictated that the item "now" vibrates and the colon (at that time) no longer did, I'm not sure that the doc's semantics actually supercede the contest requirements. I dunno, maybe I'm just too anal. :)

oh Tamra, you're such a spoil sport, that was just starting to get entertaining!! ;o) x

No no, you see, the colon didn't vibrate, until the vibrator was "misplaced" there. Then it did. So it began as a normal, non-vibrating...well, you get the picture. It vibed up until the removal, hence the "before" in his answer, meaning, that at that point, it did. Thankfully, all's well that ends well, no pun intented. Lewildbeast got it right and clearly deserves the suckers. I am delighted to have had an honorable mention. Thanks Joe.

I agree with Jo.

AND....kinda suspicious one of your medical crony's win!

just to be a stick in the mud, can I point out that the competition was 'things that never vibrated but now do', so if the vibrator was removed, then his colon once vibrated but now doesn't. Technically, he didn't answer the question. Also, not so disney. ;o). Tough being omnipotent eh Joe???
