    Damn! I just knew I was going to win. It was rigged, I tell you, rigged!

  2. Jay Tea simply outbid the rest of you.

  3. Old Keller
    Here are the rules of the contest. Got that? Good. I just don’t get how “Old Keller” is only No. 2….

  4. Jay Tea says:

    I protest! I simply went for quality over quantity! Had I actually BOUGHT this contest, I’d have had a second entry on the list somewhere. If you’re looking for someone who probably BRIBED their way in, I’d look at Kathy K, who doubled up…

    BTW, I call “Foul” on #8. Rodney changed TWO letters. Funny as hell, but technically a violation.

    J.

  5. Jay: your entry stretched the rules too — so take your bounty of a free yahoo mail acount and simply bow to your fans …

    Oh, and thanks for the new iPod.

  6. McGehee says:

    You’re right, Jay — #8 was funny as hell.

    But who’s Rodney? :-p

  7. Rodney Dill says:

    I think you mean #5 there chief. And I only changed one letter in the title. I changed an additional letter in the description to be a pun on the new title. You really outdid yourself on this one, though Jay.

    Great way to recognized a bunch of the participants, Leopold.
