Am I The New Burger Slayer?

I think I may be the Hardee's Burger Slayer for October 2006!

If you go to burgerslayer.hardees.com, you'll note that the picture labeled "Burger Slayer of the Month: October, 2006" is my picture. I've been checking the website periodically since the end of the month to see if any updates have been posted. Until yesterday, that spot for the October winner was blank, but now it's got my picture in it. I was actually out geocaching with yarbiedoll last night when I got a call from my parents to let me know that I won. It was really cool.

Now, I'm not counting my chickens before they're hatched, because I haven't been notified by Hardee's that I'm the winner. I sent them an e-mail earlier today to ask what I needed to do to claim my prize -- I hope they get in touch with me about it soon. I guess I should start deciding how I'll answer the Burger Slayer questions that they're going to ask me for my bio.

So here's a big "thank you" to all of you for helping me achieve this honor, with a special thanks to yarbiedoll for noticing the contest and snapping the picture. I wouldn't have had a chance without all of your help. If you want a position in my benevolent Burger Slaying regime, let me know and I'll see what we can work out. First, I'm going to have to see if I can use my new position to get rid of DST.

Let's celebrate by going to Hardee's!

When the OED gets around in a decade or two to recording the early 21st century definitional usage of The Man, the first entry will refer the reader to "government, the system, society, etc." The second listing, after giving definitional examples of "Sean Connery" and "Jack Palance," will without doubt list "Dr. Mellow."

Dr. Mellow, you The Man.

So I wonder what happened to the other guy. Maybe they found ballot stuffing (some kind of bot-voting)?

Or, what I find more likely, they decided the guy looked like too much of a weenie to be dubbed the Burger Slayer of October. I bet there's some kind of "weenie exclusion clause" in the terms & conditions of the contest.

From the official rules:
Spacedog, Inc. and Sponsor will select the Grand Prize Winner from the photos received during the month, including, but not limited to, the 3 photos receiving the most votes. Spacedog, Inc.’s and Sponsor’s decision will be based on marketing appeal.

Yup, the right to exclude weenies. So long, sucka!

Congrats!!
I'd go to Hardees, but all the Hardees around here lost their franchise and are going to be Arby's.

No more 6 dollar burgers!!!

Er, no. But I'll be happy to have a burger with you...at a burger joint of my choosing. We could go to Burger King in Israel...they're kosher.

Congratulations!

Haha. That's pretty neat. I didn't even know that existed until now. And that is definitely an awesome burger slaying picture :) Congrats! So free burgers on you, right?
