(Quick tangent: Every time I see a sentence ending in the word "kids," it makes me think of this comedy bit called 'Fun with Punctuation.' My favorite one is, "It's time to eat, kids!" versus "It's time to eat kids!"
Yeah, guess you had to be there.)
Anyway, here's the contest stuff. This is a Snarfy Subtitle Contest, which you would already know if you'd bothered to read the title of this entry. The point of the contest is to come up with a silly subtitle for an already published book. A couple of examples:
Pride and Prejudice: How Darcy Learned Not to Be a Big Boobiehead
War and Peace: The Reason the Rainforests are Disappearing
And so on. I'm not going to do too many, because then I'll steal all the good ideas.
Post them in the comments of this entry only. This puppy will be open until Thursday March 12th at noon EST. Winners will be posted Friday, and by 'winner' I mean the person that makes me laugh the hardest. If there's a duplicate and I love it, the winner will be the person who posted it first.
So what do you win? The prize, as with the BRAINS contest in December, is a $25 gift card to the book vendor of your choice (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Borders), and a Wonder That Is My Blog prize pack. You can see what was in the last one by visiting BRAINS contest winner Susan Sandmore. Note that the contents of the prize pack aren't going to be exactly the same every time, but consider this a representative sample. Really, it's just a bunch of things that fall into the category of Things That Make Me Snarf.
We're also going to have a mystery bonus prize this time. Mention and link to this contest in your blog and send me an email saying that you did so. I'll enter you in the bonus prize drawing, which is totally random. And mysterious. Terribly mysterious.
Any questions about the contest? Post 'em in the comments or drop me an email. Email makes me feel like I'm popular. Or something.
UPDATE: Yes, multiple entries are allowed. Encouraged, even.
