I recently hosted a giveaway offering the chance to win a copy on Entangled, by Cat Clarke. The response was amazing! I'm really pleased that a couple more people will be reading this awesome book!
I offered 2 prizes, one for a randomly chosen entrant, another for whoever submitted my favourite joke. Both of these winners will have a copy of Entangled, by Cat Clarke, sent their way! I was going to give the joke winner a runner-up prize, but decided to just go ahead and give another book away. Ain't I lovely?
So! The randomly chosen winner (thanks to random.org) is...
Diana from i-love-snow.blogspot.com
And the winner of the joke competition is...
Saskia from http://bookthatthing.blogspot.com
Here is Saskia's joke. I didn't chose it to be sexist or because I'm a man-hater. I chose it because it made me laugh. LOTS!
In the Hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.
"I'm afraid I am the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces, "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, semi-risky, and you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."
The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?" The Doctor quickly responded, "$5000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain."
The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked. A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the male brain so much more?"
The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and then to the entire group said, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've been used."
Thanks to everyone who entered! I shall be hosting more competitions soon!
