Oscar Contest Winner
Congratulations to John M. who was the big winner in this year’s Oscar Contest! John actually finished in a 4-way tie for first place with Andy Saur, Anita Hoffman Ehrenfried, and Eloise. It came down to the tiebreaker, which was 41 dead people. Anita had 38, but John took the prize with his guess of “42 1/2”. (I’ll admit the fraction cracked me up.) Congratulations, John! Your Black Swan and White Swan sock monkeys will soon be on their way to you. And thanks to everyone else for playing. See you next year!
I was thrilled to see that John actually put in his entry on the very first day, which I’m hoping indicates he’s a regular entrant or a friend-of-a-friend.
Update: Just checked the records. This is John’s FOURTH year entering and his first victory!
