Thinga-Appreciation Giveaway #11

Be the Coolest Dad on the Block is a guide to fatherhood presented as a series of slapstick routines,
trivia, brainteasers, jokes, quizzes, stories, and
practical advice. It will give you an excuse to stand on a balloon, play with grated cheese in the microwave and unroll a roll of toilet paper in the name of spending time with your kids.

One winner this week will take home this book!

Rules in Brief

This is about reader appreciation. To enter, simply read and post
comments as you normally do anywhere on Thingamababy.

For each contest, I will select as a winner one user who has posted a comment within the past
week (the first winners get picked next Saturday).

Giveaway Rules

The contest is open to residents inside and outside* the United
States. *Residents of the International Space Station excluded. Sorry
Peggy, Yuri, Clayton, Daniel, Leopold, Garrett and Sheikh, but we’ll be
happy to ship to your domestic address in the event you win.

The contest will run for one week.

Officially, the winner will be selected by me based on my own purely
subjective criteria that is free to change from week to week. For the
first week, I will choose a winner at random. If I see a rush of
empty-headed comments being posted, I’ll change the criteria to a true
sense of my personal appreciation, using comment criteria such as
thoughtfulness, educational value or humor.

To be eligible, users must include a valid e-mail address in their
blog comment. Contacted winners must provide to Thingamababy within 7 days of being sent a winner notification e-mail their shipping address (who will then share it with the artists or their publicists for the purpose of shipping the prize).
Ineligible comments are ones identified as spam by my blog software or
that I would normally delete myself due to their spammy or offensive

Giveaway Schedule
