Winner

We have a winner! Actually, we have three winners. Andydoodler is the winner of the most recent "All Alike" contest. Tony is the winner of the old "All Alike" contest and Clo is a winner for keeping me honest. All three of them have won; a print of the "All Alike" picture signed by The Unknown and a hand written love note. Of course in my heart you're all winners for playing along.

I once thought I was a winner. When I was four years old I had to stay over night in the hospital after having my tonsils taken out. Alone and scared in the hospital room that night I started to cry. A nurse working the graveyard shift heard me crying and came in to comfort me.

"There, there." The nurse cooed. "If I take you to see Winnie the Pooh will you stop crying?"

I had recently seen a live production of Winnie the Pooh and got exited at the prospect of meeting Pooh himself. I knew he existed, I had seen him with my own eyes just a few weeks ago.
"Winnie the Pooh is here? Really?" I stuttered in amazement.

"Promise to stop crying and I'll take you to see him." The nurse replied.

"OK." I said with glee.

The nurse scooped me up and carried me off through long passages and several doorways. I was excited but the trip seemed to be taking forever. On and on the nurse walked. I was growing tired and finally I must have nodded off.

I awoke in the nurse's arms. She was shaking me gently and pointing to a small sticker of Winnie the Pooh on someone's desk lamp. "There's Winnie the Pooh. Now, go back to sleep." Whispered the nurse.

I wanted to argue but sleep got the better of me and I drifted off again.

I awoke the next day. My mother was sitting by the bed and they gave me ice cream.

You don't always get what you expect but if you're lucky you'll get ice cream.

Do you love being a winner? Do you want to love me?

  • Wow- I'm finally a winner! It was an honor just to be in the company of such immensely talented captioners who I've looked up to- bowed down to- respected, and admired since I was old enough to read captions.
    So anyway- I'd like to thank God, the little people (all 7), the academy, The Unknown, my parents, my caption coach Joey DaCement Cobbler Lacheesenzo (incidentally- Joey says "thanks Unknown- youse 'ull now be spared sayin' hellos tah dah fishes- capiche?" whatever that all means?) I almost forgot- I'd like to thank my wife Jessica Simpson who's put up with me all--- $%&*! did I just say her name? Ahh- it was supposed to forever be a secret- but now that it's slipped out- yes- I was the cause of the Jessica-Nick split. #$%%!- they're playing that damn music- come on!- I need more time to thank everyone---
    You @#$% of @#$%^es- how dare you cut to commercial!...
    "Hi I'm Joey Lacheesenzo- I've been in business for ovah turrty years....."
