now that the contest is over, I just want to say that my personal favorite was Dave's "Now Here Is Everywhere". And Congrats to jaldhar.
I really liked this game. maybe we need to start a Dick board.
Thanks for running the contest. My favorite was "Man on the High Staircase" and I thought "Now Wait For Mainstream Literary Acceptance" would have won for sure.
Btw, anaclepses is a Koine Greek theological term meaning the profound sadness a character of philosophical significance feels when he is replaced by a wisecracking robot played by Adam Sandler in the Jerry Bruckheimer adaption of his story. Or I made it up.
Ragle, I can't find a contact address for you. Where do I send my mailing details? I'd rather not post them here (though I'm sure Spiro Agnew knows exactly where I live.)
my email address is email@example.com
Damn! Now Spiro Agnew knows where I live!
Thanks again to one and all who played - you're all winners and stay tuned we'll do it again real soon.
OT: It's interesting that the Russian version (er, is that Russian?) leaves out the "K."
