~  the Long's Strange Trip Great Hanukkah/Christmas/Kwanza/Ramadan T-Shirt Giveaway Bonanza ~

And the winner is....

On New Year's Day, we convened a distinguished panel of international judges, all representatives of the prestigious accounting firm of Price-Waterhouse/Coopers, in order to ensure a scrupulously above-board selection process.  Led by Randy, our experts included Evil Santa, the Buddha, Incense Man, Christmas Cat, and a small firecracker.

A box was filled to the brim with pieces of paper, each one containing the name of a dedicated Long's Strange Trip reader who had diligently ordered his or her gifts through LST's link.  Luckily, you did not have to be present to win.  As the tension mounted, Randy performed the honors, and drew the name of Winnie Fetell of Atlanta!

Randy heralds the beginning of the Winnie Dynasty 

But not to be outdone, Evil Santa pointed out that Winnie's entry contained not only a hanging chad, but also a dimpled one!  He demanded a recount, but we were not so easily strong-armed by a poorly carved wooden statue, and were quick to notice his resemblance to Al Gore.  We doused him with cheap Indonesian rum and set him aflame, thus preserving democracy and Winnie's victory!
