We have a winner!

10 Jun

Yes, folks, it’s time for me to break a few hearts and announce the winner of the awesome HANGOVER OWL! I wish I had enough Hangover Owls for everybody but that’s part of his charm; he’s a Limited Edition of Awesome.

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer… the winner is…

The Black Star! Aka Justin! Aka my Bestie’s husband! I swear I did everything by the book and went to Random dot Org. Even though I know and love Justin personally that didn’t have any bearing on the contest. Perhaps he’s just naturally a winnar.

Not only does this save on shipping, but since I can deliver this to him personally I can also take a photo of him crapping his pants with joy, and perhaps he can send me a photo of it displayed proudly on his 80s-era work desk. It will fit right in! Vintage, just like the rest of his office.

Sadly I have seen Justin resemble Hangover Owl on many occasions–not because he’s a raging drunk, but because he has one of these:

(I stole that photo from his flickr stream. Thanks, buddy!)

Aren’t they adorable? They do tend to knock you on your ass though.

Congratulations on winning Hangover Owl! You rock! But not as much as the owl.

    Sometimes the baby resembles drunk owl too, when he wakes up but really didn’t want to be awake. Though I am pretty sure he makes the wife and I feel that way a lot more often than he ever feels that way. Maybe I should put this above his crib and write under it “This is what you will make mommy and daddy look like if you wake up right now.”, or I could put it in my office next to a picture of me after I was awoken waaaay to early, and see if people can figure out which one is me? OR I could be all fancy and something that is all baby picutre + daddy picture =’s hungover owl.

    Well damn, now I have to figure out where I will be putting this awesome-sauce-ness. Maybe on the front door, with a sign that says everyone is asleep, piss off already….

    Maybe I could just put it over a section of the bathroom mirror, at head height. I look pretty much like that when I get up in the morning, or worse.

    Also, I didn’t used to be allergic to mornings post child, but now I so am.
