Byron the Quokka here, to announce the winner of our milestone once-in-a-lifetime comment contest! The winner, the reader who posted No. 50,000, which will never happen again, is….trumpets, please!

“Evreilly”! (We know her as Evelyn.) Her comment came in late last night, just as we were packing it in for the day. You can find her comment attached to the post, “My Interview with Lee Strobel”–it’s a great comment, by the way. So Ev wins an official Quokka T-shirt, either in Large (very dark blue) or Extra Large (bright red). All we need from you, mate, is your mailing address: please email it, and tell us your choice of shirts.

Now watch all the comments dry up because the contest is over. I told Lee that wouldn’t happen on my watch, so I’ll have to find some way to keep things hopping.

Byron the Quokka here, mates, with the question of the day:

Who’s gonna win the Quokka T-shirt?

Whoever posts Comment No. 50,000 on this blog! And there’s only 82 comments left to go!

Here’s a picture of the shirt. Well, not exactly: couldn’t find a picture showing the shirt in either bright red or dark blue. But you get the general idea.

Look at that–just 188 comments to go to reach 50,000. The suspense is killing me!

Byron the Quokka here, mates, and here’s another look at the official and bona fide Quokka T-shirt that the winner will get for posting Comment No. 50,000.

All right, the blue shirt we wound up getting is darker than this, but the picture’s the same. We have a bright red shirt in Extra Large and a dark blue in Large.

Here on Rottnest Island, the excitement has reached a fever pitch. Practically every quokka here has got a pretzel in the pool (we don’t use money). No, I won’t tell you who I’ve picked to win. Let’s just say I have a lot of confidence in this reader.

A mere 188 comments to go! That should barely get us through the weekend, eh?

Holy moly, the suspense is killin’ me! In fact, there’s not a quokka here who bothered to go to work today. They’re all glued to their computers, waiting to see who’s going to post Comment No. 50,000 on this blog.

Byron the Quokka here, with the update–and like the man in the headline said, there’s only 230 comments to go, to get to 50,000.

And the winner wins an official and bona fide Quokka T-shirt! Your choice of red (XL) or very dark blue (L). Yeah, I know they’re big. That’s why you can use ’em for nighties. And if they’re too big for you, just imagine how big they are for us. But you can always wear too big somehow; you can’t always wear too small.

Well, gotta go! One of the quokkas is getting up a pool, and I want to…

See the source image(Chomp, chomp…) G’day, mates! Sorry for the delay: couldn’t talk with my mouth full. Byron the Quokka here, with good manners–and Question No. 18 in our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. Eighteen! Only three left before we have a winner.

Ready? Here it is?

Who denounced the Thunder King and declared God’s judgment on him–in the Thunder King’s own golden hall, in front of all his mardars?

We still have one reader who’s gotten every question right so far, hasn’t missed one of them. I wonder if that person lives with quokkas. We have that effect on humans.

The winner gets an autographed book and the admiration of all the other readers. You can even hold out for the next book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, if you can wait till sometime next year.

P.S.–Don’t forget the BIG comment contest! Only 344 to go, to reach 50,000! Who will win the official…

Crikey, look at all these bicycles! You’d think we could give out at least one bicycle as a comment contest prize.

Never mind! The prize for posting Comment No. 50,000 on this blog is an official and bona fide Quokka T-shirt! And so far we’re at Comment No. 49,195–which means there are only 805 comments left to go.

Yesterday we had 72 comments, but today we’re nowhere near that. I keep telling Lee he’d get more comments if he wrote more interesting posts–mostly about quokkas!–but I don’t think he believes me.

Look! Is that a great prize, or what?

Byron the Quokka, signing off–and don’t stop commenting!
