Yackety Yak

W00t! I just found out today that I have won Alan's "Winds of Change" contest. On January 17, Alan challenged his readers to come up with a environmentally safe way to deal with the global threat that is cow farts. Yes, you read right, cow farts. Apparently, methane gas will be our ultimate downfall as a planet. In his words:

"... environmentalism was at least partly to blame for global warming.... it seems that while carbon emissions are the prime cause of environmental damage to the atmosphere, a serious secondary cause is the emission of methane. ... We’re talking cow farts here. The environment is going to hell in a handbasket, and it’s all the fault of farting cows."

He then challenged his faithful readers to propose "... the most original use for bovine botty-burps you can think of. " And apparently, my cow fart proposal won. Mom would be so proud.

My prize is a one-of-a-kind (nearly) T-shirt from Kathmandu with five embroidered (YES! embroidered!) yaks with the legend, "Yak yak yak yak yak," beneath.

You can read Alan's full post and my brilliant, tour-de-force, award-winning plan to save the planet from the scourge that is cow farts here. Thanks, Alan!

Wo ho! A photo shall be forthcoming. Assuming the Royal Mail and Canada Post don't completely bugger up the job and I actually get the shirt.

Well it went in the mail this morning. By usual Royal Mail standards that means you should get it around this time next year. Maybe.

Yes, and once Canada Post gets their mitts on it... you could walk to Kathmandu and back and still get back here first...

Thanks, Alan! Will report its arrival.
