Upcoming Competitions

Coming soon on Infomaniac …



We have an exciting new guessing-game contest coming up soon!

Beginning this Saturday and lasting all through next week, we’ll be holding THREE COMPETITIONS.

AMERICANS ONLY may play on Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th. The winner will be announced on Monday, July 27th.

BRITS and IRISH ONLY may play on Tuesday, July 28nd and Wednesday, July 29th. The winner of this contest will be announced on Thursday, July 30th.
Update: I’m using the term “Brits” roughly (though not accurately) to include everyone from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

EVERYONE (except Canadians) may play on Friday, July 31st. The winner will be announced on Saturday, August 1st.

Tomorrow, look for our regularly scheduled Filthy Friday.

Then be sure to come back on Saturday, July 25th when the first of our THREE COMPETITIONS begins!

  1. This is not fair though. Letting the Americanas and Britanians have their own day each and letting them play again on the sloppy thirds day with the riff raff.

    We should get our own day too dammit.

    Not that I care though as I will be boycotting this injustice of grand proportion ie shall most likely be working.

    Still we should have our own chance of winning your tat. Come one, let today be our independence day!

  3. Verrrry intriguing.

    I will have wrested myself free from the clinging vines of the Deep American South by then and should be able to play!

    Oh quit whinging you big baby!

    The Canadians are not allowed to play at all in ANY of the contests!

    You, at least, have competition #3 in which to participate.

    IVD: Lawks 'Petra! Careful you don't fall off your soapbox.

    Considering the height of his stilettos, I’m surprised he hasn’t already toppled over!

    LEAH: Verrrry intriguing.

    I look forward to seeing your score!

    You can shove your campaign up your backside …

    If you have any room up there with that banana and who knows WHAT other rotting fruit.

    VICUS: Yawn.

    Fortunately, I have an extra high heel just for you.

  10. Oh Goodie a competition!

    is it spot the well known blogger?

  11. KAZ: I protest on behalf of Celine Dion.

    She gave up her Canadian status, in our opinion, when she moved to Vegas.

    And they’re welcome TO her!

    SCARLET: I have put the details in my diary because I am sensible.

    Is it your “sensible” side, Miss Scarlet, that is urging you to purchase a pair of CROCS?!

    FROBI: Oh Goodie a competition!

    Everyone can instantly identify you by your Bree Van de Kamp wig.

    So in a word…no.

  13. TJB: I am SO Arlene Francis.

    Yes, darling. We had YOU in mind when we posted this pic.

    Can't wait. My heart-shaped locket and eyepatch are primed and ready.

    Then this is the ideal time to send your bow tie and pocket hank collections to the dry cleaners!

  14. What about those with dual nationality?

    And what about us Scots that consider ourselves 'Scottish', rather than 'British'?

    We think you haven't thought this shambles through properly.

  15. And what about the omnipotent, eh? Can they take part in all of it then?

    First of all, we thought the pair of you had stopped commenting all over Blogsville. So we didn't think we would have to address this issue but sure enough you show up like a bad smell.

    Don’t you refer to yourself as a 'ScotBrit'?

    Anyway (your favourite word), I’m lumping all people from England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland under the “Brits” label for this contest to simplfy matters.

    Can you suggest a better word for them?

    Wankers, perhaps?

    I’ve already written the draft for the contest but if you can suggest another word for them, then let me know and be quick about it.


    And what about the omnipotent, eh? Can they take part in all of it then?

    Sing along…

    Jesus on the mainline, tell Him what you want.

    You can call Him up and tell Him what you want.

    Go ahead but we’ll ignore all your answers.

    CYBERPOOF: *stumbles off soapbox in 6 inch stilettos and walks off in a huff*

    You’re trailing toilet tissue on your heel.

    GEOFF: What about us Aussies, mate?

    You’re not fooling anyone with that silly cork hat.

    XL: Will there be steroids testing?

    Pee into this bottle please, sir.

    No, you can't get your friend to do it for you.

    RANDOM: Oooo, I love being blind-folded! Is that part of the competition?

    No, you’ll need your eyesight for this one.

    But a blind-fold would be handy for reading Infomaniac’s Braille edition.

    SCARLET: What about THE ALIENS?????

    They are too busy abducting people (especially Brits!) to care about our little competiton.

    EROS: I, too, have marked my calendar and preparing myself for the competition! I shall begin to wear a blindfold tonight and feel my way around the apt and guess the various objects I find.

    Excuse me!

    That was no radio knob you just tweaked!

    JELLY MONSTER: Ummmm I'm kinda canadian too, raised there, have the accent can I enter there too??

    Oh for Heaven’s sake.

    You will enter the Brits/Irish compo only and be glad about it.
