    Need Ideas for New Contest

    I need some ideas for a give away contest for August.
    Last month was a lot of fun with all the great jokes you guys posted.
    I kept coming back to the computer looking to see if any new jokes had been posted. It changed my social standing as well.
    Now people laugh when I tell a joke (sometimes).

    A couple ideas I had were;

    Strange things that have happened to you. Like the time you were abducted by aliens.

    World's most unusual pet photos.

    Or..........?

    The prize for this month will be this block of stabilized walnut.
    I thought it was too weird to sell but it might make a good prize. Even if you just use it as a paperweight.

    How about a contest to see who can come up with the best contest?

    You guys have to do better than that.

    How about the most embarrassing thing you ever did when you were drunk?
    We need to come up with something that will be entertaining.

    You comment about your wood reminds me of Hunter S. T. Too weird to sell, to rare to die. I like the "strange things that have happened to you" as that could include boozy memoirs as well as other strange or farcical material.

    Mark, why is that piece too weird? The only thing that I can say about it is that i wish you hadn't stabilized it. I would love to whoop up on that thing with a London gunmakers oil finish. That piece would look downright 3D.
