It's only the most amazing contest/carnival thing ever, that's all, and, well, you know me; I would never exaggerate. But this contest is for people who are, in a word, real. Who don't live in denial about not having ugly coffee mugs somewhere in the backs of their cupboards like all good Americans do.
Yeah. Right. What-Evs, Ms. Denials.
Yes, this contest is for those who fancy a little thing I like to call "coffee." Starbucks, to be exact.
A $15 card goes to the person who gets the most votes in my comments for "Ugliest Mug" on January 26th. One vote per hanging chad. Voters recruited by ACORN will need to show death certificate or toe tag before voting. Contest closes at midnight. I will announce the winner on the 27th.
How do you get votes? Get a mug. Then on the 26th, post a pic of yourself with your mug and beg people to vote for you. Tell them if they vote for you, all of their wildest dreams will come true. This always works.
Then after you post, come here to link up so that people go see your ugly mug.
May one vote for one's self? No, one may not because one will congest the comments, and that will confuse Zoe when she has to count the votes. (Someone has to do the math.)
You know, it could have been worse. I could have had an ugly pants contest. Oh let me guess ... you don't have any ugly pants, either. So just what do you have that's ugly--so ugly that if someone had a contest, this object would win, hands down?
