Contest: We have a winner


While you were sleeping, I changed the rules.

But before you get your baggies in a twist, consider that not one person entered.

That's right: when I first mentioned a contest on Monday, August 1, and then spelled out the details (below) on August 5,  I expected a deluge of submissions.



Good thing I didn't hold my breath.

So I asked my Crack Contest Team (you didn't know about that one, did you? That's because I just created it out of whole cloth for this post.) how to proceed.

They said go back to when the contest began and pick the best comment from then till now and give that person the prize.

So that's what I did and I am delighted to announce that the winner of the Bone Horn Stand for iPad 2 โ€” donated for this occasion by Cyberguys โ€” is Nathan, who commented on the "What is it?" post featuring what turned out to be a garlic rocker:

Nathan, you can have your choice of the one pictured up top (white and grey) or the flashier yellow and black version below.

Send me a mailing address and I'll get it right out to you.


If you don't have an iPad 2, no worries: Cyberguys also sent along a Born Horn Stand for iPhone so you can choose that instead.

No iPad or iPhone?

Not to worry: Cyberguys has tons of other cool stuff in their catalog that doesn't require a device.

You say, "Yo, joe โ€” how come you're saying such nice things about Cyberguys?"

Well, first of all I've ordered from them for years and continue to do so  and I like their stuff, which I've featured here regularly.

Second, they donated the prize for this contest.

What's not to like about that?

See, the only apple products in my house come from the farm, but a great comment regardless.

Dear Joe:

I take up too many electrons / day to have entered the contest. I suspect that I'm not alone with that inhibitory reflex. Nobody want to be called the teacher's pet (well, nobody smart enough to play on the BOJ playground)....

A little more fanfare for the next contest, this one sneaked by me also.

Could it be you have modest fans?

The comment contest is a better concept anyway, in my opinion. It's relevant to your brand - me telling you about a day that changed my life has nothing to do with why I visit your site each day. Also, I'm embarrassed to say, I didn't even see the contest mentioned. I run contests for brands as a career and I give the clever comment contest my seal of approval. Whatever that's worth!
