And the winner is…

A few days ago I posted about a contest I’m running as part of a Canadian Tire Father’s Day promotion.

Many thanks to the folks who entered — some very entertaining and creative offerings. 🙂

After careful perusal and a few guffaws, I had to go with the entry that made me snort aloud at the line, “They monkeys will have plenty of room to roam there. Or, you know, lay about casually in the fields.”

And so the winner is… Joe Boughner! Gotta give him props for preying on my fondness for the sockbeast as well, though I’d actually pretty much settled on him as the winner before I found out that he’s going to be extra qualified to win the contest, since he and his wife, Amy, announced their impending parenthood this week. Congratulations!

Here’s hoping the wheelbarrow helps with hauling home all the stuffs you’re gonna need for your first offspring. 🙂

Update! The lovely and talented Joe was unable to fulfill his obligations as Miss Wheelbarrownia, and so I needed a new winner. But picking one myself made me feel bad, so I wrote all the other commenters’ names on slips of paper, put them in my lunch bag, shook them up, and made James, my desk neighbour at work, pick one from the bag.

And the new winner is… Violet! Fortunately I know for a fact she has both a yard AND a husband who is a father. Wins all around!

  1. Man, it's an honour to be chosen randomly by a guy I don't know. Now, do I have to prepare an acceptance speech for this? Get dressed up to accept the box when it arrives?
