Several people (okay, maybe one or two) (okay, maybe one) (Aimie) have been asking when the results of the Rocking Genitalia Related Phrases Contest would be announced. I finally have some answers.
Here's an email exchange I had with Adam (with spoilers censored of course, for dramatic effect, since we don't have a final final answer).
It's official, your blog is BANNED in Vietnam. I have tried several times in different cities, because I know that the T-shirt contest is long over. But I can't get on it. Diplomatic measures may have to be taken between the US and Vietnam to sort this out. But then again, diplomacy has never worked well in this country, so I might have to wait until I'm in Thailand.
But this might be a new thing: being banned in a foreign country.
That's sad news about Vietnam banning me, but it's also kinda fun to be so controversial, maybe one of these days I'll be banned in America too.
I wonder if I'm banned in Vietnam because I swear too much or something like that. I wonder if myspace.com is banned in Vietnam too (like it's banned in American high schools). I wonder if my blog is banned in American high schools?
Can I post your email on my blog? Inquiring minds (okay, maybe just Aimie) want to know when the final contest results are going to come through!
Ya ya, post whuteva. I think the winner is ****** *** **** **** **** ***. I bought several T-shirts, one of which will fit *****. But, I'm adding ANOTHER rule: all (meaning yours, the winners, and Lindsay's) T-shirts will be sent to your address (which you should give me at some point) and they can only be picked up in person from you. That means that ***** and Lindsay have to go to see you to get their shirts [you can post this too].
Myspace is not banned in Vietnam, but they've managed to keep toilet paper and traffic lights almost completely abolished.
So there ya go, people. That's yer update. The contest has not been forgotten. We'll have an official winner soon.
