No More Calls. We Have A Winner!!!

Word Garden Fun Park International is excited to announce the winner of the Sunday Quiz! As you may recall, readers were asked to identify the person in a picture (much like the one above). You all did so well! It's too bad that several of you had to be disqualified. Sorry, but all decisions by the judges are final; mine because I am inflexible and obtuse and Bosco's because he tends to lift his leg and piddle on whiners.

First, let's reveal who the picture was actually of! It is, of course, blogger Mama Zen, who doubles as the witch Bayonetta when she is not at Target buying family packs of Cowboy Joe's Genuine Panhandle Squirrel Steaks.

But I know my churlish, quarrelsome readers! I realize that some of you will need proof. Here it is. MZ with Baby Puppy...

...and MZ/Bayonetta attired in OU Boomer Sooner colors. Nuff said.

Now for the disqualifications. Brian Miller's guess was completely correct, and he was the first to comment. Such blatant sucking up is more than reason enough to toss him out on his ear, don't you agree?

Hedgewitch originally guessed Sarah Palin before amending her entry. That's not allowed. Plus God hates a coward. Thanks for playing!

Cloudia guessed correctly, but included fish with her comment. Fish are against Word Garden Fun Park policy, and so down she goes. 

Herman Turnip went on about rules and you know how I get. Good night and good luck, Herman. And watch where you're pointing that thing.

Daryl and some noob poetry blogger failed to make a guess at all, and so cannot win. And Hannah Stephenson guessed incorrectly, but flatteringly.



Now, to our winners! Yes, winners, with an "s"! The first and official winner is Lolamouse, who identified the person in the picture in such detail that I almost expected a slide show and afterglow party. Plus, the tall judge loves her mouse drawing. Never discount those intangibles!

The second winner is Lynn, who failed to meet the deadline, and as previously noted, Fireblossom loves rulebreakers. Plus, she pointed out that the picture had a name pasted on it in big red letters. Helloooo, losers! (Comments by judges do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of Word Garden Fun Park International LLC.)


Our last winner is Sioux, who bribed the short judge. Congratulations to all the winners! All three of you get to tell me what you would like me to write a poem about, and I shall do my best. Joy, sorrow, PEZ candies, astrolabes, pitch it on in here, baby, I'm ready. 


I leave you with this video of Mama Zen thinly disguised as Bayonetta. Enjoy!

Back to poetry next time. Boo, hiss!

hedgewitch said...

Disqualified for cowardice?

But...but that's the stuff that makes our country what it is today!!
That's the first quality necessary in a good politician! That's...

Oh. Right...

I salute you, O more worthy ones, and slink back to the underside of my dark rock to brood.

I shall return to fight another day, when it's completely safe and there are no tigers, succubi or armed, testy women in leather present.

Sioux said...

Please write a poem about pork bunnies and glitter rinds sometime this week for Brian.

He seems quite despondent.

Fireblossom said...

Pork bunnies? Glitter rinds???

!!!

HermanTurnip said...

I demand a recount, a revisit, a revise and a run off. I demand citations, specifications, tallies, itemizations and recapitulations. This outrage, my friend, will not stand!

Oh, and congrats to Lolamouse, Lynn and Sioux :-)

Well, damn. How did I miss this? I coulda been a contenduh.

mac said...

How can it be a contest if I didn't even know about it? Am I expected to follow this blog or something?

I coulda guessed it, yanno ! Of course. I coulda guessed it wrong too.

It's really a moot point, seeing as you write so much for ME already. Ok, you don't exactly write for me, but they touch me still :-P

Lynn said...

While I do feel a little sorry for Brian for not getting the win, I LOVE BEING A WINNER!!! Yee haw!

Daryl said...

I was supposed to guess? After all the others had cribbed off that Brian guy? Seriously? Oh ..

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Clever contest idea, Shay!

Congrats to the winners.

Mama Zen said...

I hear that Bayonetta loves pork rinds and shoots glitter bunnies . . .

Lolamouse said...

To all the losers,
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
