WINNER & You Guys Are So Funny!

And the winner in the Divergent giveaway is......


Congrats, Prerna! Get me your info, and I'll get it sent right out, new-hardback-crack and all. I wished I had ten more copies! Some of you pulled at my heart-strings, and some of you tickled my funny bone.

I was going to write a post about garbage men and triggers today, but I changed my mind. In the giveaway, remember how I said you'd get extra credit for using the words holy frijole!, blue 42, snowplow, kablam, and/or meerkat in your comment? Well, some of you darn near killed me! I just HAVE to include some of the responses, so you can love them, too.

This one... well, didn't LITERALLY almost kill me, but it could have. I read it as I was leaving work and stopped in the middle of the street to double over in laughter. I've probably read it a dozen times since then.


JeffO said... " The snowplow, the one with the blue42 on its side, swept away my mailbox last week in the storm, so the mailman left my copy of Divergent on the doorstep. That dang meerkat from across the street ran off with it. I saw him sitting at the edge of his little meerkat burrow, reading MY book. So I threw open the window and took a potshot at him with my trusty 12-gauge - kablam!

Holy frijole, I missed the meerkat but hit the book! So, I definitely need a copy."


@laurathejane said... I was going to cook a holy frijole tonight in the oven, but read the ingredients and was snowplow'd by the blue 42 and meerkat. Seriously, what happened to chicken and red dye? I could totally use a copy of Divergent to read while I stand at the oven, and hope the food doesn't kablam over the sides.


Cassie Mae said... Holy frijole batman, this book is so awesome, I want it more than a snowplow! And that's totally sayin' something since I live in the blizzard capitol of *ahem* Utah. Every time it snows, it's like KABLAM! And all the meerkats go scurrying into their holes.


And this one, for her creativeness in splitting up the Blue 42 and the Holy Frijoles!


Carterista said... This coming winter I'll be watching an enthralling episode of Snowplows Gone Wild when KA-BLAM! Out of the blue, 42 meerkats will waltz in looking all holy. Frijoles will be served with rice and the show will be enjoyed by all.


I should probably stop now. But if you guys have time and are looking for a laugh, definitely go check out the comments! Just click here.

Grats Prerna! I'm thrilled to have an honorable mention, though I must say when I read over JeffO, I laughed before reading it again and again. Darn, just read it again now. Loved the contest!
