MakeConnieLaugh Winner: First Place

Posted by Connie Reece on August 2, 2020 at 8:11 pm

I never imagined that the MakeConnieLaugh in 140 Characters or Less contest would turn out to be such a dangerous event. While I can’t award a Purple Heart, I can award a First Place prize to Tim Siedell, an advertising guru and jerky afficianado [inside joke] who was so determined to make me smile that he wound up injuring himself.

Tim Siedell / Bad BananaYou’ll have to dig deep on the Web to find a real photo of Tim; on his Bad Banana blog and Twitter he prefers to use the iconic image of one of his heroes, legendary adman David Ogilvy. A well-thumbed copy of Ogilvy on Advertising has a place of honor on one of my many bookshelves as well.

Here is the series of entries from Tim that cracked me up. Remember, these are posted in reverse chronological order, so it helps to start reading at the bottom.

Here’s a shout-out to Brenda and Ryan for adding to the fun.

A final note to Tim: I am still awarding you First Place, even though I later found out from your Web site that you also won the World’s Toughest Briefs competition. Somehow it sounds like you weren’t exactly playing fair here; nevertheless, you can still expect an autographed copy of The Age of Conversation. :-)

Congratulations, Tim! Well-earned - the bit about Skylab had me ROTF!

Hey, thanks Connie!

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank my privates, without which I would not have won this contest. Nor would I be the man I am today.

That was hilariously funny. I was laughing after each line. I’m still working on that 8 things about me post/tag. It’s taken time to get in touch with everyone and make sure they haven’t already been tagged in this game. Hopefully the post will come out next week.
