Byron: ‘Now What?’ — Lee Duigon

Please go to Lee Duigon’s blog for some fun!!

G’day! Or is it? The big 50,000-comment contest is over, tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of the Bell Mountain trivia contest…and then what? Byron the Quokka here–and then, I guess, the Quokka’s occupation’s gone. Shakespeare used to say that. He was a quokka at heart. Oh! And look at this! We’ve got a Quokka T-shirt […]

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.

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…
