Remember: the winning number is between 8 and 10

IX-nay ompetitition-cay oting-vay!

This blog has not only written the rulebook on getting megahits, but has linked hard, fast and continuously in shameless self...obedience.

So when you vote for the winning entry in the "Iowahawk Endowment for the Arts $33.18 Steel Cage Art Death Match", keep the cube root of 729 and the one who links you most in mind.

Also remember: this blog has produced such atrocities as:Whether or not this blog wins the coveted prize, there will likely be more shameless acts of irresponsible literary vandalism in the offing. However, if you vote for me and leave your name in the comments, I promise to use the letters of your name in that of a future story character's moniker.

Also, voting for a an entry whose number equals the count of squares on a tic-tac-toe board, along with a fiver, is likely to get you a cup o' joe at most coffee shops.

So ya got that goin' for ya. Which is nice.


  1. Huh? Number 34, you say?

    That's the winning number!

    (Don't get me wrong, number nine is pretty good, but this contest is mostly about visceral visuals. And what is more visually emotiovascular than #34?

  2. Is there a math question buried in this post? Holy carp - if you think I have a comma problem you should know that I never made it past my "sixies" when memorizing the multiplication table (except for 9 x9, which is easy.)

    In any event, you've bought my vote and promises of a great campaign effort...

  3.'ve bought my vote ...

    ACORNIST !!11!!1!!
