Shameless flattery, a picture of women’s bums and a trillion pound note abounded amongst the entries for last week’s blog competition. I wouldn’t have minded having the real version of the trillion pound note, but when it came to some of those arses … meh. I don’t want to be overly mean, but let’s just say if you are going to pursue a career of being a derriere model, then I would have thought a few hours a week on the stairmaster would have been mandatory – not looking at anyone in particular, second model from the left. Thankfully, I do my Davina McCall Buns Of Steel workout DVD religiously so this rant comes whilst I have my well-toned buns on top of a high horse. And by religiously, I do in fact mean ‘once a year at Christmas’.
Correct answers also abounded and that answer was of course Martina Hingis – the five time Grand Slam winning Swiss Miss who definitely doesn’t have a penchant for cocaine, but equally doesn’t have a penchant for defending herself when being accused of taking cocaine. She won the ladies’ singles titles at Wimbledon and the US Open once and claimed the Aussie Open thrice which was the key information the hopelessly inaccurate and not to scale map was trying to communicate.
After being laughed at, all the wrong answers were put in a bin and all the correct answers were put into a metaphorical hat and the name drawn at random from that metaphor was that of Fio Tuite. Thanks to your shameless publicising of it around the interweb, last week’s competition ended up being worth a Free €67 Bet. So there you go Fio – thank God for people who are willing to bombard friends and acquaintances with corporate messages on social networking websites.
Thanks to everybody who entered and retweeted and sorry if your luck wasn’t in this week. There’s another chance to test how much the Gods of good luck like you coming soon.
