The Ron Paul Dollar And Me... Or... Look What I Can Get My Friends To Do!




Every now and then, I forget that I can be one lucky SOB. And not in the usual lucky way, either. Lucky in odd ways. Lucky in ways that surprise and delight.

Those ways.

I told y'all the story of the Ron Paul Dollar. I told y'all I had entered a sign slogan contest with "What Can Ron Paul Undo For You?" and I won. Well, it turns out first prize was 15 Ron Paul Dollars. Yes! 15!

I wasn't paying attention, apparently, to the rules again.

Ebay is currently selling them at around 150 dollars each.

Sometimes I feel like one lucky so-and-so from Oregon!

As to these pictures? Well, that's my friend Leo. He is the most photogenic man alive, I think. I took these pictures... well... as evidence I can talk almost anybody into doing anything...

Hmmm.


Surely you mean "almost anything"?

Isn't Leo the fourth ZZ Top member?

Gold, um, Silver Digger said...

Wow. You're rich. What're you doing tomorrow night?

Jeannie said...

Your friend looks like a gnome! And yes, you certainly are lucky.

Cool! Coffee and tacos are on you next visit~~

Mushy, jeannie

I always tell Leo it looks like someone watered him and he grew up and escaped my garden.

What a great story. And I love Leo's beard.

Very lucky--congrats! As for Leo, gnome vs. ZZ Top ... that's a tough call :)

I think Leo must be a leprechaun. Looks like it to me, anyway.

Congratulations on your sloganeering!

How cool! So are you putting them all up for sale? You know they're only worth $150 each so long as someone is willing to pay it...

And your friend Leo looks like fun :)

Hey -- you can probably use those tokens at Chuckee Cheese!
