Hooray for the Weiners...... I Mean Winners!!!

I have the Trivia Corner winners and the cereal mascot battle winner to announce.

In a surprising twist of events, Dawn, a.k.a. Baygirl32, a.k.a. Miss Maple Syrup (okay I might have made that last one up) fought tooth and nail and tied Pat Tillett for first place in Trivia Corner. I did not see this coming, I mean what are the chances? Any statisticians out there? If you figure out the odds, let me know by carrier pigeon. If you want the answers to the last round tell me in your comment.

I had stated in the rules of the game that the first place winner could choose between a guest post or for me to write a post about them. The second place winner would then be left with what the first place winner didn't pick. Since they both tied for first place I will let them both choose from either option. See what a nice guy I am? Don't believe what my Grandma tells you, she's just mad that she didn't win. So Pat and Dawn, you get to choose either a guest post here on JTC or for me to write a post about you and your blog (I would choose the guest post cuz I don't wanna write anything about either of you....lol). I want to give a shout out to RawknRobyn for trying her best, she might not have gotten a lot of answers right but I'll give her a pack of pretzel m&m's for effort.

Here are the final Trivia Corner Standings:

I know that most of you have been waiting on the results of the final cereal mascot battle between Tony the Tiger and Toucan Sam. Well, wait no more, I will tell you the winner after a message from our sponsors. What, we don't have any sponsors? Then who is funding this thing? It's free? Then who is sending me those paychecks? I need to get to the bottom of this. Oh yeah I was about to tell you who won the mascot battle.

That final round was a nail-biter. I tallied up all the votes and it was tied. That can't happen, I don't have a tie-breaker system. I looked over the votes again and realized that there was a late ballot for Tony on Monday, the polls closed on Sunday. So if you haven't put 2 and 2 together (you must have ridden the short bus to school and maybe to work), the winner of the cereal mascot battle is Toucan Sam!!! The parade will be next week, it will circle Tony the Tiger's block. Thanks to everyone that voted and participated. Toucan Sam couldn't of won without you. That's not true, he could of bribed me with tickets to The Price is Right but only if Bob Barker is guest hosting.

Dawn and Pat can tell us the odds that they'd tie, I'm sure. I like that, and I like both of those brilliant people! Congrats to them and Toucan Sam. (Camera Man and I have lots to celebrate tonight. Woo-hoo!)

I just loves me a photo finish!!!

Pat Tillett said...

In the trivia contest, I don't need or want a recount. I'm more than happy to have tied Dawn. Congrats to her!

BUT, the battle of the cereal mascots had to be fixed! Toucan Sam, toucan't, toucouldn't, and toushouldn't have won...

As to the grand prize. If you don't mind I'd like to think about it for a bit...

thanks!

And in a rage of defeat at the hands of bribed judges, Tony makes short work of Sam and enjoys parrot for dinner.

Pat and Dawn...what a fitting way to finish the contest...I will be content with third place this time.

TS Hendrik said...

Toucan FTW! There was much rejoicing in the land of cereal.

Congrats to Pat and Dawn! Such high scores, and that trivia is freakin' hard!

Also congrats should go to Toucan Sam, but ya know, roasted parrot does sound pretty good right now...

I hope you're feelin' better today PTM *sends lots of cinnamon and sugar your way*

Baby Sister said...

Awesome. Go Toucan!!

baygirl32 said...

I've been called a lot of stuff in my life, but never Miss Maple Syrup (might use that some time)

I was not expecting to tie with Pat that's for sure. Way to go Pat, you rock.

I think there should be a re-count for the cereal mascots, I mean Tucan might have won buy a nose, but is not deserving.

Robyn, I'll trade you for the M&Ms!

Hart Johnson said...

*happy dances and shakes tail feathers* WAHOO! You know, I named my son after Toucan Sam... Little Toucy gets a bad time sometimes, but it was worth it...

And congrats to your trivia weiners!

Congrats all!!!

YAY TOUCAN!!!!!!!

Congratulations to all the trivia winners! Someone should be calling the audition people at Jeopardy and letting them know all about these amazing smarty-pants! As for the battle of the mascots, I can't remember who I voted for and so I am just going to pretend that i voted for the Toucan Sam! Yayyyy! - G
