We Have a Winner!

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Apr• 25•12

With the Gingrich campaign announcing today that the former Georgia congressman will be dropping out of the Republican Primary for President next Tuesday (does that sound like a weird announcement to you?) it appears that we have a winner to the BlackberryAlarmClock chicken dinner contest.

Unless someone can prove me wrong, Michael D. of New York City, who guessed that Newt Gingrich would exit the race on April 5th at 12:02 p.m., was closest in guessing Mr. Gingrich’s exit date and will be sent a complete chicken dinner  from Omaha Steaks by Fedex tonight.  Mike guessed closer than my vegetarian sister Ann by a mere 60 seconds, for which  Ann is undoubtedly grateful. 

Again, this is no ordinary chicken dinner.  It is, according to Omaha Steaks, a “Delicate Herb Roasted Chicken like you expect to find in a fine bistro.”  And that’s not all.  This this “fully cooked half chicken is boneless, except for the wing. Add in Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans and you’ve got a perfectly balanced dinner with an elegant presentation.” Full retail value of this extraordinary poultry offer? $39.99!

Congratulations, Mike. Anyone wishing to contest this award should please do before 6 p.m.  Thanks.

    Darn it! The roasted garlic mashed potatoes and green beans sound delicious! That Mike has always been a sneaky guy…

      P.S. No offense intended to Omaha Steaks–I’m sure this is of the FINEST bistro quality–but I can’t help but notice the chicken looks like some sort of roasted cartoon character. Someone might want to do a background check on the purported poultry…
