More Anonymous Lawyer fun

by Eszter Hargittai on June 27, 2006

The competition in the Anonymous Colleague contest was fierce with a very close outcome. The winner is Nabakov with the following entry:
“Mr Happy, who believes if something funny is worth saying once, it’s worth saying a thousand times, the fucker” having received 33.5% of the votes. He wins the free Anonymous Lawyer book from the publisher.

Congrats also – but no book, I’m afraid – to M. Gordon for the “Amazing Vanishing Advisor” entry, which came in close second with 30.2% of the votes.

There are more opportunities to have anon legal fun including the chance to win an Anonymous Lawyer T-shirt and the book. The Anonymous Law Firm is accepting job applications and the top ten entries get goodies.

How do you know when you ARE one of these? I think I might be the apprentice loser.

And then what do you do?

I think that this contest was unfair, like the Pepsi Challenge. Sure, sweet sweet Pepsi tastes good for a sip or two, just like “Mr Happy, who believes if something funny is worth saying once, it’s worth saying a thousand times, the fucker” for the first couple reads. But if you take a case of cola home with you, or read a whole book in which the Anonymous Colleague’s pseudo-name keeps coming up, then that sweetness is going to be a little much, and the classic “Amazing Vanishing Advisor” or Coca-Cola will prove superior.

Oh wow! I was so not expecting this. I don’t know what to say. Hang on, I’ve got a few notes here. First, thanks to all the CT readers for voting for me. You do really love me! Who else? Oh yes, a super hug for my wonderful agent. We did it! Yeah! To my ever fantastic manager, respect! And a big big big thank you to all the people who worked so hard behind the scenes to make my comment a reality. You know who you are. This one’s for you. And finally I want to thank God for liking me more than all the other entrants. Oh what? I have to go now? OK. Goodnight! Peace and stop the war now! I love you all!

Now where do I go to get my prize?

Eszter: Serves you right. If I had been awarded the prize, I could have just picked the book up from you this weekend when I was at my parents’ house in Evanston. Since Mr. Happy &c is getting it, you’ll actually have to mail it! Suck on that!

Minvera: Actually, I think I’m Mr. Happy &c.

Blar: You’re just ahead of the curve. You know, “When true genius comes into the world…”

Nabakov – I thought you’d never hear the music.;) I’ll get in touch about getting you the book.

M. – I don’t have the book, the publisher does. But that bit of info and the fact that you didn’t win doesn’t have to exclude an Evanston meet-up.
