GUESSING COMPETITION. FABULOUS PRIZE!


Friends, roll up, roll up, it's the Seeking Utopia 'competition of the year'! All you have to do is to nominate which of the three life forms in the above photograph is a turkey (and I mean a real bloody turkey)!

Now I realize that it's a very difficult task that I've set but then life wasn't meant to be easy. And after all, this blog is for thinking people and I know this competition will sort out who the pretenders are. And what is the prize the more mercenary of you ask? Free life membership of Seeking Utopia that's what!

Look, I know you are overcome by my generosity, kind of choked up, but it's part of my nature I guess. I was going to offer a three month, round-the-world trip for two with all expenses paid but I knew you'd truly value life membership of this priceless (some might say prizeless) blog more.

Besides, because of the turkey, the world mightn't be here in three months! There'd be nothing worse than being poised to dive into the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean when suddenly you are vaporized by an errant nuclear weapon meant for Iran. Or touring through the Swiss Alps enjoying the breathtaking scenery when suddenly, KABOOM, the place looks like a badly neglected billiard table in need of some Haliburton care (Onya, Dick). See how thoughtful I am! Modest too.

You can enter my competition as many times as you like but the Judge's decision is final!

Good luck.

Can I ask the audience?

I need more time.

Yeesh Daniel, that's a tuff'n! Mind you the turkey holding the bird looks the part but it might be a trick question so I'll go for the bloke with the stupid grin and the oversize suit.

What was the prize again?

I'm going with the loon whose comment is posted above this one.

Daniel said...

Lynn, Damian and Anony, I know I've probably made this too hard but I'll give you all a hint: the life form is a type of gobbler, some say of democracy.

Anony, mentioning a loon, which is a type of bird, keeps this thread flying!

Glad you like my work, Daniel.

Also like the "thread flying" pun. :)

Hey Mate, just came by your blog, via leftwrites.

Must say love your work. hahaha

That was funny

Lucyp said...

The difference between a turkey and GWB is one has the vacant stare, the low IQ and the inabilty to string together a coherant sentence, and the other is a type of poultry.

Daniel said...

Lucy, does this mean that one is not the other?

Dodgypress, welcome aboard!

The one smiling and wearing the metallic pin and the dumb grin is the real turkey...and we should try not to offend the creature with the feathers...he is NOT the biggest turkey....

okay so where is my prize...you know those mediterranean waters...? the lush landscapes...?
the pool boys delivering my tall drink with the umbrella....oh...I just described Fantasy Island....isn't that the same as Utopia ? it 's not? ....are you sure ?

We Americans love contests, don't we?

Granny said...

This contest is doing a grave disservice to that innocent bird.

Do I win? Do I? Do I?

Neil Shakespeare said...

Aha! This is a trick question! There are THREE turkeys there!

Daniel said...

The Beak is deep in judgment, combing through the entries (the standard of which is very high). No fowls have been committed to date though, in terms of length of comments, some have been poultry.

The winner will probably win by a Parson's nose!

"We need to counter the shockwave of the evildoer by having individual rate cuts accelerated and by thinking about tax rebates"

That is a quote from the grinning turkey with the lapel pin. Nothing could be stupider than his actual remarks.

Nancy said...

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

WeezieLou said...

i think the bird should be pardoned by the turkey.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Gee, (scratching head) could it be behind door number three?

I only see two jackasses and one turkey.

MarcLord said...

To be Clintonian: my answer depends on your definition of the the word "turkey."

Daniel, as I write this, F-18s are flying over my house at an altitude of 500 feet and hitting their afterburners. I live in a supposedly uber-lib city, and my 3-year old is yelling at me, "Daddy! The bad airplanes are here!"

This prompts a clarifier: which of these turkeys pictured have actually flown?

Daniel said...

Nancy, they are not quite as incoherent as his usual pronouncements! Almost.

Weezie, I think hanging is more apt than pardoning!

Good one, Mariam!

Marc, the turkey has flown: as far away from war service as possible!
