  1. OzarkHillbilly says:

    OK guys, I had very little this time and my few submissions were really pretty weak. And yet I won an Honorable Mention. Really, that is a serious indictment of my competition. Either that or Rodney’s sense of humor has tanked as badly as Lee at Gettysburg.

  2. OzarkHillbilly says:

    That said, I still thought Guarneri’s – Shut up and load it on the truck. The HillaryBus didn’t work out so she wants this.

    was a winner.

  3. Paul Hooson says:

    An honorable mention is always appreciated by me….Thank you!

  4. Franklin says:

    @OzarkHillbilly: Ouch. I thought there were some good submissions, particularly by Rodney himself.

    Also, I learned the word “franking” and, this uh … this is embarrassing, but I finally found out what a “rampart” was.

  5. al-Ameda says:

    Thank you OTB. Also, I’d like to thank my family, my accountant, my agent, and my attorney – without you, none of this would have been possible.

  6. rodney dill says:

    @OzarkHillbilly: Guess I picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue.

  7. Guarneri says:


    Thanks. Only a picture of a broom could have teed it up better. Now, what to do with big tricycles?!
