Jjaba - I'm kindly asking you to rescind your offer for guessing the prize.

The more I think about it, I realize I want the prize to remain a mystery.

Only the winners will ever know.

And that's the way it should be.

Respectfully-

MTD

MTD, jjaba rotflmjao.

jjaba will take a few more guesses and if Thnk2mch gives permission, disclosure will be done. In the mean time, keep guessing.

Faucets?

Thumb pianos?

Heya Matt,

You got those two matching blue D caps, if you can rush your ass down to the new Eph McNally's on Woodward...after 3 when that Scott guy is at the register.

Tell him they're on ME from his secret stash on the second floor. Heh.


Had me laughing my little ass off...thanks.

Thank you, jjaba. Our two prizes were delivered late yesterday afternoon--matching his and her Cadillac Escalades. Although gas hit about $2.75 a gallon overnight, they are still much appreciated. Although you handled this most challenging Trivia contest quite well without my services, I am willing to judge furthur disputes. The grape-throwing controversy has me devoting long-needed research into the Michigan criminal statutes on A and B. However, Trivia contests come first.

And congrats to you, 2mch, for winning a tough contest. Admittedly, we were hoping for a pair of Mustangs, but jjaba is on a limited budget.
Surprisingly, it seems that when I click on to the Forum, the Trivia contest has not only been posted, there are already several entries and often times a winner. I am never ahead of the game. I question how well I would do anyway.

Thnk2mch has spoken. jjaba cannot diclose the prizes which are between the contest and the winners. Look for future contests and win. Maybe you too, can win a matching set.

jjaba is at liberty to disclose the retainer with The Rock, contest official lawyer. Given the problems of Grosse Pointers not wearing socks with dress shoes in summer, The Rock does receive nice new socks when his services are needed.

It should be pointed out that jjaba's trivia contests do consult with legal on occasion "in camera", out of sight of the general public.
jjaba likes to run the contests but there are always legal questions to protect jjaba from getting booted off The Forum. The services of The Rock brook no demeaning.

The Rock has never ever won a Trivia Contest here. He would like to try, but he's smart in other areas. Run a trivia contest about Great Lake Shipping or UM sports and he'll clobber anybody here.

jjaba, Trivia meister.
