Are you as excited as I am?
For those not in the know, the last two days have had polls open for the The Great Hot Dog Photoshop Contest.
However, before I announce the winner, we’ll get into a standard array of blog junk.
Hands down, the best images I’ve seen.
And am kinda laughing right now.
I’ve long said that if ever I succumb to a terminal illness, to please prop me up in front of a television monitor with an endless loop of people falling down and I will giggle myself to wellness.
Moving on to industry news, though they will not have a booth at this month’s Interbike Bicycle Trade Show, I was pleased as punch to see that my compatriots at Ritte Van Vlaanderens had a good bit of visibility out there at the Eurobike;
I have no idea how to read any of that link up there, but the pictures are really pretty.
And in other news of those within the esteemed dungeon of the Maximo Supremo- GaudiDawg from Portland Design Works made with the contact regarding a new little whizbang they got set to release real soon-like;
what’s new? Hot dogs, I see. As delish as they are hilarious.
New stuff from PDW! I’ve attached our press release and a photo announcing our newest Cargo product – The Owl Cage;
We produced a video too – check it out here:
I have a gold Owl heading your way soon!
Look at that thing? It’s a little bird that hugs your hydration device.
You head it here first, and if anybody makes one, I demand my royalties.
Which of course means like, a bottle of Miller, and a dirty joke.
And speaking of Interbike- I suspect a good many of us will be there, and though the good many of us who will be there need to introduction/invitation I will mention once again that in exactly thirteen days, the seventh annual Underbike Industry Mixer® will be upon us. As I’ve said time and time again, everyone are welcome, except dicks. Dicks can stay home;
We’re probably gonna have a real good time at this function, and will be sawing to and from to the big rock and roll sounds of Lady Sinatra;
Please remember that (besides the not being a dick one) the only rule is that there are no rules.
Finally we’ve come to the moment that we’ve all been waiting for. The announcement of the winner of the The Great Hot Dog Photoshop Contest.
By my estimates, a lotta people came through, but only 333 people actually voted, which is a curious thing to me. Did our founding fathers die so that you could ignore the democratic process?
Anyway- by kind of a landslide, (and not that it had a ton of competition), it was this following submission from Chris Forns;
For his effort, he gets an AHTBM Black Mettle shirt, random decals (or ‘deckals’ if you’re Canadian), the new as-of-yet unreleased new issue of the zine, a gigantic practically solid gold ‘B’ belt buckle (which stands for ‘badass’), and box of other random crap;
Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit work, and know that in my heart, each and every one of you are wieners.
