It is the last contest with a cash prize on the line which Uncle Mac's will be offering in 2012, so put your figurin' caps on.
|THE LAST KNOWN PIC OF "MR. BIG", IN SITU|
A few words about Mr. Big, our prize rutabaga. First, he is a quitter. For weeks he added an inch of circumference every seven days, until he reached a corpulent 21" plus. And then he just gave up. Shame, Mr. Big! Shame!
Second, Mr. Big is a fraud! Almost all of his bulk was above ground. What is up with that, Mr. Big? Perhaps we will call you "Biggy Smalls" henceforth.
But still, it might be interesting to guess his weight (already recorded). Here, such as they are, are the rules.
Contest begins right now; Sunday November 11, 2012
Contest ends midnight Sunday November 18, 2012
First (and only) prize is: $20.00 US, delivered via Paypal
