Where Everyone Can’t Be a Winner

christmas decoration, christmas decorations, christmas ornament, christmas ornaments, literary suspense novel, literary suspense fiction, literary southern gothic suspense novel, literary southern gothic suspense fictionI wish everyone could win my Cootchie Contests, because yesterday’s commenters gave me lots of belly laughs. Your company brightened a hectic day.

We have two categories of winner: those who got really close to the mark without looking around online for the answer, and those who found the item online with the magic of Google. Because this item is a rather obscure architectural doo-dad produced and sold primarily in Japan, finding it on Google deserves some reward.

The winners who got close to the mark:

  1. Fiona (aka Speccy) 
  2. Ted Strutz

The winners who Googled:

  1. Kenneth Andrews
  2. Carnell

The item is from a Japanese series of architectural model accessories. Click here for a link, generously provided yesterday by Carnell. The whole site is worth a look. The dinosaur series is quite funny to me for some reason.

Now, for my conundrum. I only have two of the antlered ladies to give away. For the other winners, I have a lovely wood cut Finnish snowflake ornament.

Dear Readers, please help me assign the, um, booty. Who should get the antlered lady? The snowflake? Please help me decide by weighing in with your choice recipients in a comment.

And, for the winners, please message me with your mailing address so that I may get these out to you. I will mail them during the first week of the new year, and may they bring luck for all of 2013.

This post is part of the series Roll Out the Holly, about the stories Christmas ornaments can conjure. Click here to read the series from the beginning.

  1. Definitely Fiona and Ted get the lovely antlered lady with their excellent guesses. The Google Twins, aka Cyber Ninja and Keyboard Rascal, should get a photo copy of a small snowflake for using their cyborg skills so unfairly to us poor normal people.

    • Your wisdom never fails to amaze me, Lou.

  2. Well what a shock! I think the nicest thing about this whole deal, is to have my name mentioned in an Accidental Cootchie Mama post. I do think the Finnish snowflake ornament would look lovely on Fiona’s tree. Pretty cool to see the link.. how much is 1,500 yen?

  3. No, no, no!!! I want an antlered woman! I worked hard on that! I went through a lot of time, effort and expense … well, ok, no expense, but a lot of time and effort to find out what it was, research it and come up with the exact link!

    What kind of society would this be if all of that hard work and dedication resulted in a mere snowflake?!?

    • But, Nancy might like the snowflake. You could give it to her with a really thoughtful card, and then you might have an antlered lady of your very own…… ;)

      • You are far too classy, you even found a classy way of telling Carnell that he was going to make his wife “horny!” heh

        December 23, 2012
      • Bah, humbug!

  4. How hilarious! Thank you :)
    I’m fairly sure that I’d have googled ‘santa props mobile doofy’ and got no closer to the real answer!
    This series has been great, and I’m so very chuffed to be getting an Andra ornament. Hurrah!

  5. I agree with Lou on this one!

    December 23, 2012
  6. I, too, am with Lou. Sorry, Carnall….there’s other rewards for Googling; mostly just the great fun of learning “stuff!” :)

    December 23, 2012
  7. I’m piling in on Lou’s side on this one…..

    December 23, 2012
  8. I think Nancy would like the snowflake; I am with Lou too…

  9. So do you reward going old school or do you reward 21st Century skill? What a conundrum.
    I say do it the old fashioned way and flip coins.

  10. So, wait. It’s not an official North Pole flag? This contest made my brain melt. Also, I’m learning I am pretty awful with guessing.

  11. let this be a lesson to anyone who might have their lot get thrown in with the likes of Carnell, everyone will vote against you! lol

    December 24, 2012
  12. Since Carnell would be the most like to appreciate the antlered lady . . . in all her curvaceous allure . . . give her to him.
