GLENN IS THE WINNER

ATTENTION GLENN:

If your name is selected in our forthcoming random drawing of thousands and thousands of entrants, then it is very possible, pending a review by our prize committee, that you will receive a blog post just like this one saying...

GLENN IS THE WINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To qualify, all you need to do is provide us with you very best local postal address.

Then, and only then, will we write your initials on a ping pong ball and drop it into our ENORMOUS OIL DRUM full of ping pong balls. Then, and only then, will we possible agitate the drum and retrieve a single ping pong ball. If that ball has your initials on it, and if we have no other entrants with your initials, and if we do not lose the whole drum and all the ping pong balls by accident in our gigantic warehouse full of oil drums, then it is possibly very likely that you will receive a blog posting just like this one saying


YOU HAVE WON THE PRIZE!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe.


Please note: This competition is not regulated by any entity and it is not fair. Void in states.

AHAHAHA...

Would you consider the song "King of the Road" to be a hobo song, perhaps even an annoying folk song?

Ohnoshrubs said...

Glen must have stolen all the answers!

hodg-man said...

I think "King of the Road" is a trucker song, no?

Glenn Peters said...

Hooray! I await my prize with quantum anticipation.

Glen must have stolen all the answers!

He stole them from the Beatles. I'm stealing them back.

Third boxcar, midnight train
Destination...Bangor, Maine.
Old worn out clothes and shoes,
I don't pay no union dues,
I smoke old stogies I have found
Short, but not too big around
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

I know every engineer on every train
All of their children, and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked
When no one's around.

Boxcars? Trains? Handouts? Worn out apparel? Smoking old, cheap cigarettes he has found? Sounds like a hobo to me; then again, it's not one of my areas of expertise!

hodg-man said...

You are obviously correct: a hobo song it is.

Mike said...

By the word "Glenn" do you possibly mean to imply "Mike"?

Simmone Lynch said...

Quite funny!

TV Guy said...

Damn that was humorous...

Although now my head feels not unlike a big bowl of silly string.

thanks..

Here's a story about an online scam that your readers might be interested in. This comes from a national association of tax preparers. http://northridgebuzz.blogspot.com/2006/08/e-mail-from-irs-be-skeptical-says-natp.html

ashleykaren said...

Pingpong balls shouldn't be aggitated...they are one of the happier pieces of sports equipment.

the mysterios writer said...

Dr.Hodgman I would very much like to participate in your contest but with the price of oil so high I cannot purchase oil drum at a reasonable price, I even consalted my tarot cards on what to do but all they told me was that "this could signifythe joining of two families in marrige" and oil barrel makning was not one of your listed areas of expertise! Explain to me what I can do
