After careful consideration Jeremiah and I have picked the winner of Humphrey the Owl and all his owlish good looks.
I want to thank everyone for their delightful and flattering homages to me. I know announcing this contest made me sound like the world's biggest ego-maniac, but it turned out to be a lot of fun.
Especially with entries like these:
Nancy made me and Max into stuffed animals.
Vic made an animation of kickassingness.
Kim showed off her artistic talent.
Dr. Monkey wrote me a lovely haiku.
Jules paid homage to me AND Milli Vanilli in one awesome swoop.
Prosy made our love immortal with jam and toast.
And last but not least the talented MJenks wrote an original story starring my alter-ego (an obviously incredibly hot and fit Erin Oliverosetree). His follow up post was almost as golden as the original!
After careful deliberation and a lot of arguing (mostly with myself) I wittled it down to Mjenks and Vic. They both put a lot of thought and effort into their entries and I greatly appreciated both of their homages.
But, in the end, Jeremiah and I have decided that Humphrey will go to Vic!
She's planning on placing him in her front window to taunt passing children, I think this will be a very appropriate occupation for my fine stuffed friend. I have Vic's address, being that she is a customer, and will be shipping out Humphrey sometime this week.
In addition to Vic's prize everyone who entered the contest will receive free shipping from my store and orders via email for life!
Thank you again for the time everyone put into this. I was excited every day this week to see what everyone came up with!
