American as Baseball and Contests

Well, I promised something special on Monday. I should probably have my wrist slapped that it ends up being shameless self-promotion. My design has printed this week at Goodjoe.

The Best of Friends fits the Goodjoe catalog by promoting the ideals of friendship despite differences, by fostering sportsmanship and consumption of meat products, and by being gosh darn American. But I'm obviously biased. I designed it originally to evoke summer, and the two characters make me smile. If you happen to enjoy it yourself, I would be honored for my work to be on your chest. And hey, comment below with your favorite baseball team and thing-to-put-in-a-hotdog-bun, and you could win one yourself. Don't forget BOTH, or I'm afraid I will feed your entry to my wild capybara herd. I'll be drawing Friday, so hurry up if you're interested.

But if it doesn't particularly make you smile, there's more. I'd like to announce the editor's selection picks for my Mecha-Labaw contest. Reader Darels will be getting a DBH shirt of his/her choice for a compelling defense of Zebra-as-Pet, as will Goldenthorn, for not only being the only person to introduce me to a new and awesome species, but for subtly implying that I might end up being subjugated by massive millipede-esque armies if I didn't select her. For all of our sakes, I felt it would be for the best. As I do not believe I have won the official contest my contest was based on, I cannot afford to make a random selection, but I will happily select one if I am informed otherwise. For now, if Darels and Goldenthorn could email me at 5songsinc@gmail.com with their selected shirt, size required, and shipping info, and then comment here that they did so, it would be awesome. I'll have your prizes processing next week.

My favorite baseball team is the Texas Rangers and my favorite thing to put on a hot dog bun is a hot dog (boring I know) but I do like to put pico de gallo on top.

Congratulations on the print.

Nice! Congrats! On a baseball note, my hometown won this year's Little League World Series! Woohooo!

Finally, I can comment. I like the Astros, but I'm a pretty fairweather fan. I like a hot dog bun to be filled with...a hot dog. Or a polish sausage. Or any kinda sausage. Except a breakfast sausage. And I like to load that bitch up with spray cheese. Yum.

I do enjoy a good yves meatless dog, but i'm not opposed to an ordinary hot dog. Favorite team is the Minnesota Twins

Oh, decisions, decisions.

This one, This one or This one
I can't decide.
I CAN'T DECIDE.

I don't like baseball and I don't have a facourite baseball team. In my defense, I'm Canadian. That probably disqualifies me from winning anything, but it's the truth! :P

My favourite thing to put in a hot dog bun would be a cheddar smokie. Cheese-filled meat = delicious. Top it off with whatever is on hand - ketchup, mustard, relish, chili, cheese sauce, BBQ sauce, pickles... Yeah.

Addendum: congrats on the print! How many is that for you now?

THANKS! I just managed to get online again and I'm greeted with some great news!

And yes, it's. SO. HARD. TO. PICK. Sorry, do give me a few more moments.

And congrats on yet another print!
