Herewith the results
oh so macabre this lovely Sunday morning!
And just to up the ante,
there's E.M. Goldsmith!
If you three ever get together, I think Hamlet will spontaneously stage itself!
Here are the finalists!
Steve Forti, in full Fortissimo Form
just left. it's hot & funky in there. fair warning.
dayum! u no kidding! nasty! turn on a/c!
use deodorant, dude! gross :(
at some point we're just going to have to start handicapping Steve with some extra rules or something. He's so hilariously brilliant it's just not fair.
“J’accusé!” declared the detective.
“Je me repent!” declared the accused.
“Je pardonne,” said the wronged to the penitent.
“Je m'en fous,” grinned the executioner.
In French no less.
Impromptu French no less.
Not amused to be bruised, I accused.
He lied, denied, took me for a ride.
I fought, he's caught.
No bail, jail.
Now I'm amused.
I love the rhythm of this.
Red hands: dead giveaway.
Time out: ten minutes.
Crimson foyer masterpiece: permanent
You were thinking it was some bloodthirsty crime no doubt (me too)--particularly
after Elise, Cynthia and Amy did their double bubble entries above.
A twist in 13 words is pretty damn amazing. And bonus points for alluding to paint
without saying the dreaded word.
And this just cracked me up completely.I axed to be accused and so they let me go.
I love the word play.
Of course this is the winner!
Congrats FanManFan. Email me with your mailing address and I'll get a copy of Accused in the mail to you. If by some chance you've already read it, I've got some other terrific books here that need good homes.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to write and post entries. You really brightened up my day, and I thank you for it!
And for those of you guessing the number of requested fulls yet to be read: you're all wrong. And too low. I counted them up this morning, and that odd sound you hear is me weeping shark tears into an already salty ocean.
