A couple weeks ago, I gave out four copies of Kaboom on Twitter. Good way to spread the word while clearing out apartment space - a win-win. Afterwards though, I received an email from a longtime blog follower who pointed out, rather nicely, that they deserved to participate in giveaways, too. Fair enough.
Tell me a joke in the comments section. Preferably a military-related joke, but it doesn't have to be - Irish jokes, women jokes, and bad Asian driver jokes are also encouraged. Top ... 3ish? ... jokes will receive a free, signed copy of Kaboom, inscribed to whomever the winners desire. Contest runs through Friday afternoon, and yes, I'm the only judge. (In Mills Lane voice - "I'll allow it!")
1) I like irony, but love understatement.
2) I'm a sucker for self-aware cheesiness.
3) I'm definitely not above gallows humor (anyone whose read Kaboom knows that, but, in theory at least, this is for people who haven't yet read the book), but crudity for the sake of crudity isn't going to do much.
Update, 1/22: Winners posted in comments section. Thanks to everyone who participated!
