And the Winner of the Half-Box of Brillo Pads Is…

I know at least some of you have been waiting with bated breath for the results of this drawing that I announced would take place over two weeks ago, but which hasn’t yet because I’ve been pretty busy with stuff and things. That is, I know for certain at least two of you have been looking forward to it, because you’ve said as much.

Most of the people who commented on that post appear to have done so only to tell me how much they hate Brillo pads. I’m not sure if that means they want to be included in the contest or not. I mean, some of the commenters specifically said they did not want to be included, because they hate Brillo pads, but others didn’t mention anything about wanting to be excluded. I’d say that means they want to be included, because I did say comment below to join, but then their comments were all like “I hate Brillo pads because one attacked me when I was little” and “I hate Brillo pads because they’re clearly time-traveling here from 1954,” or “I hate Brillo pads because they’re coated in baby souls” (I assume that means “the souls of babies”). I found that kind of confusing, but I guess if you don’t want the Brillo pads, you can just say so and I can hold another drawing, because I certainly don’t want to force anyone to take a prize they don’t want.

YOU WILL TAKE THEM OR ELSE!

So I guess the normal thing to do would be to make a video of the drawing itself, so that everyone can see it isn’t rigged. I’m not doing that because I don’t even like having my photo taken, much less a video. I have a sexy baby voice through no fault of my own, and hearing it recorded freaks me out. Plus, I worry that if you guys knew I sound like a struggling porn actress, it would damage my street cred.

Besides, if y’all are worried about a drawing for three Brillo pads being rigged, you might have bigger problems. What I will do, to assuage any concerns anyone might have, is show you a picture of the hat I’m drawing from:

Those are all your names in there.

In the interest of fairness, I left the actual selection up to my panel of impartial judges:



And, without further ado, the winner is:

  1. After seeing the success of your drawing maybe I should consider having weekly drawings to get rid of some of the useless items that are taking up space around my house. I'll see what I have left after my next yard sale.

  6. YAAAAY I WON!!!!!!!!!!! I'd like to thank the academy, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and the makers of Brillo Pads for their fine, fine scrubbing products. And of course the judges, who will receive their catnip bribes in 10 to 12 weeks :D
