Thank you to everyone who played along with me! I had a blast reading through all your answers, and can I just mention how HARD it was to choose? I’m thinking I’ll have to do this again some time. Okay, so tallying up the scores, here are the winners:

1st Place: 
MikeS

2nd Place: 
Lenny Lee

3rd Place (TIE): 
Chris Philips and LTM

Since there are 4 winners, I’ll add Mystery Prize Pack #2. First place gets the prize pack of his choice and then so on with the leftovers. I have e-mailed them all and will have shiny prizes in the mail as soon as the choices are all in. Thanks again for playing!

*Note: The author of this post does not encourage the use of the word Turd. 😉
