Thanks to everybody for participating in Straight North's 8 Gig iPod nano giveaway! A big, special thanks to Robert Hruzek, Robyn McMaster, Jeanne Dininni, Joanna Young, and Jacob Share for hyping the contest even though more participants meant a lesser chance of winning the iPod nano (which Mr. Hruzek shrewdly observed in one of his posts).
It never ceases to amaze me how people can look into the crystal ball and come up with so many exciting and unique meanings and interpretations. So what did everybody see in my little cartoon? Here are all the entries.
Joanna Young saw a need to be careful with words in her podcast post.
And finally, my own vision of what happened to poor Mr. Gas Station Guy. I love happy endings.
Well, thanks again for joining in. I think you'll find something valuable in each and every post. I guess that covers it, so ... oh, wait. I forgot about the PRIZES. Does anyone want to know who won the books and the iPod nano? O.K. Well, the winners (drumroll/apologies to Robert Hruzek) are ...
PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!
The Word Sell business books go to ... Mr. John Crickett! (applause)
and the 8 Gig iPod Nano, a $200 value, goes to ... Dr. Ellen Weber! (ovation)
Congratulations to you both! Please send me your mailing address (and John, your two book selections), and your gifts will be on the way right away.
