G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here–and so is the prize for the human who posts Comment No. 50,000 on this blog.

Yep, it came in the mail this morning, so now you can be sure that one of you will win it. Here on Rottnest Island, us quokkas are getting up a pool to see who can pick the winner. I’m not allowed to tell you who I’m betting on, so don’t ask.

Any road, 50,000 comments is a big milestone and it’ll only come along once, so the prize has to be something special. Which it is!

Well, then, what is it? Ha! When we’ve got 49,000 views, that’s when I’ll tell you–and then watch everybody scramble to be No. 50,000. Crikey, we’re making history!

Oi! Where is everybody this morning?

Byron the Quokka here, mates–and I just stopped by to give you a friendly reminder, which is this.

The current ongoing comment contest is heading towards 50,000 comments on this blog, a major dinkum milestone, and there’ll be a special prize for the winner. We won’t tell you what the prize is until we’ve reached 49,000 comments–because we want to see the fur fly, once readers realize what a fantastic prize this is. We’re just a few hundred comments away from that.

Now I’m supposed to be running this thing, and it makes me look bad when there’s only one comment up so far today. A duck-billed platypus could do better than that!

Comment Contest? What Comment Contest?

G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if I ever knew it’d be so much trouble, running a comment contest, I never would’ve volunteered to do it.

Right–we’re shooting for 47,000 comments, we’ve got 46,335, so that leaves 665 comments left to go. I thought we’d be done by now. I blame Lee. He should’ve listened to me and offered a bicycle as a prize. But no, he has to stick to his autographed books.

And then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, I have to come up with Question No. 6. Tomorrow, maybe. My mum says running two contests at the same time is fair dinkum loopy and I never should’ve let him do it–but that’s all “How d’you get to Sydney Opera House? Practice, mate–practice!”

G’day! I promised to give you all Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain trivia contest and it took me all day to think of it! Running these contests isn’t as easy as it looked.

Right, well, here it is–

Who gave Cavall to King Ryons?

Mind you, you can’t get these answers if you haven’t read any of Lee’s books–not unless you’ve got a special kind of mind that I’m sure doesn’t exist.

And now back to the family nest for a game of Clue!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!

Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–

“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”

My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.

So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.

(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to…

My allergies are killing me again, and somehow I just can’t get up for covering any more nooze. So it’s time to hand over to Byron the Quokka…

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain trivia question No. 3. I hope some more of you will play–nothing quite so blah as a game that nobody plays. And remember, the winner gets a bicycle–oops! I mean an autographed book.

Let me hit you with a question that’s only a little bit hard.

Question: Who was the outlaw who called himself “the king of Lintum Forest”?

I’ve never met another quokka who couldn’t answer this one, but the contest’s only open to you humans. Don’t ask me why. I guess we just like to see you folks enjoy yourselves. And we’re tryin’ to help Lee sell some books.

Byron the Quokka: Next Question!

Here’s Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. I’ve watched Lee do this several times, so I’m sure I can do it, too, while he goes outside  and tries to write another book.

Right, here goes! Question No. 2–

What is the name of Martis’ horse?

Yeah, I know that’s an easy one, but no fear–they’ll get harder as we go along. Remember, whoever gets the most right answers wins a bicycle… Oops, shouldn’t’ve said that. The prize is supposed to be a book.

In case of a tie, you both win.

Now don’t make me look like some poor sap of a kangaroo by not coming up with answers. If this doesn’t work, I won’t get any more contests to run. Here, I’ll even give you a hint!

It’s not “Man O’ War.”
