Remember the contest to draw on my forehead? Yeah me either, or at least I’ve been trying to forget it.
Well, this is one of those good news/bad news situations.
The good news is that people read and participate in this blog. Hooray for us!
The bad news is that most of us can’t follow simple instructions, don’t own any sort of photo-altering software more complicated than MS paint and we collectively are obsessed with …
wait for it …
I fully expected a lot of dicks being drawn on my face. Maybe that’s all 2010 and magic-marker-on-a-passed-out-person’s-face nostalgia, but that’s what I expected.
It is not what I got.
I got a lot of “bitch” comments. As in, simple drawings on my forehead saying I’m a “bitch, “UR a bitch” and something I couldn’t read that ended in “itch.”
I like to pretend it said, “Well ain’t this a bitch,” which would have won because that’s a favorite phrase at the moment, but it didn’t.
Beyond the actual photos sent back, there were also comments left on the blog or others that were emailed to me. One comment offered the following, “Todd, this is a great photo. You actually look young. This looks exactly like you. I don’t know why it makes me laugh so!”
But my forehead wasn’t big enough to handle all that text. I asked the guy at “Oh God my Wife is German” how much it would cost to expand my forehead in Photoshop and he guessed the time it would take could quickly reach four figures.
So, I was left to pick the winners from my email and Facebook instant messages.
There were – I think – four or five entries, Whittling it down to one wasn’t that hard thankfully. Posting a photo with the words “U SUK!” on my forehead, while mildly funny, isn’t very funny.
This entry by Nova did tickle my funny bone, however.
So, its as simple as that, Nova wins.
And the winner has elected to receive a beer stein because look at this photo …
