We have a winner! Actually, several! And more on the way!

Our grand prize winner in the Funny Fake Children's Book News contest, to be rewarded with a signed copy of the brand new Barefooted, Bad-Tempered Baby Brigade, goes to this funny news flash:

Jon J. Muth expands his undergarment collection to include Zen Boxers and Zen Briefs along with his popular shorts.


I'm also awarding a signed copy of the book to our top two runners-up:

Purple crayon drops Harold after TMZ leaks pictures of alleged “blue use.”

and...

FDA announces a recall of 10 million Green Eggs & Ham frozen dinners that could be contaminated with salmonella bacteria.

Funny stuff!

All of the entries were wonderful!  So I'm going to toss the rest in a hat and pick two more winners at random -- but I'm too tired right now to cut up all those little pieces of paper, so that part will have to wait until tomorrow.

In the meantime, congratulations to Kris, Lori, and Kelly!  Let me know how you'd like your books signed (I can personalize them to you, personalize them to someone else, or just sign them) and where to send them, and you'll soon have a bad-tempered book of your own!

Thanks, everyone, for participating in the contest!

And special thanks to our celebrity judges:  Abigail Samoun, Alice Pope, and Alyssa Eisner Henkin, plus our tie-breaking judge Boni Ashburn.  Thank you!

P.S.
You have inspired ME. I'm going to do my variation on one of your winners on FakeBookNews (http://twitter.com/fakebooknews) soon.
