I am sure that my regular readers will know why I refer to myself as an idiot. And proudly so. If you are new to my blog, you may want to read this article first to get an idea of why I think being an idiot is so, well, really cool in fact.
As with the court jesters of times past, I like to think that some of the information I impart here in my blog, will be understood as being amusing on occasions, but at the same time, at least mildly and probably minutely informative. The theme for this blog was and remains narrowly focused on one subject. ‘Life, the Universe and Everything’. It is my way of remembering Douglas Adams, who I admired greatly. He was a great idiot in my mind.
So, with that background, let’s get to the Idiot Competition.
To have a chance of winning, write a 500 word or less explanation as to why you too are a proud Idiot. For those with no embarrassment gland at all, you also have the opportunity to support your text with photographic proof. Just go to my website, and enter!
As you would probably have guessed already, there is a twist.
The winner of this competition will be the entrant who finishes THIRD! That’s Gold for 3rd and the biggest prize. Second prize goes to second just like normal. But first place is Bronze and is the smallest prize.
So what’s up for grabs? My books and CDs. Why? Because only an fool would buy them, but an idiot is smart enough to find a way to get them for free.
All entries will be considered for publication on this blog. (Don’t worry, I’ll ask your permission before publishing a word.)
So get to it. Why are you a proud idiot?
