Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

Korea Finder (special spare change edition)
One of the many things I did on my recent return to Korea was fishing my coin-filled honey jar from my car so I could take it to a local bank in Hawai'i and cash it in (literally).
As a contest for regular readers, I'd like to have people guess the value of the coins inside (all US). If at least a dozen people participate, I may consider giving a free Starbucks coupon to he person who guesses the closest, as long as it's within 5% (one guess per person).
This could be more fun than McD's Olympic gold sweepstakes.
Contest closes within one week or after I go to the bank, whichever is later.
Though I originally posted this on July 31, at 6:23 p.m., I'm going to try to leave this at the top of my blog until I finally have time to go to the bank.

O.K., I'll bite (first). My guesss is $8.00! Will you let me know how much it was, even if less than a dozen people participate? Just curious.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I will.Delete
i'm guessing $25ReplyDelete
There's a lot there. I'd say $115.ReplyDelete
Wow, I thought it looked to be mostly pennies...^^ReplyDelete
Try it again, Sam. :)Delete
"one guess per person" unless the rules have changed.Delete
Ha ha, itissaid. You remind me if me (arguing one GI Korea's decisions) over at ROK Drop.Delete
Okay, perhaps you are right about changing the rules.
'Sokay, Kush. I don't want people saying I pulled a Heidemann.ReplyDelete
Gah? What's a Heidemann?Delete
Anyway, thanks for being a good sport about this.
It's a neologism I just came up with, with the meaning of: 'Shamelessly exploiting an unfair advantage for an undeserved second, third and fourth chance to take the win away from someone who truly deserved it', named after Britta Heidemann, the German fencer who exulted over her dishonorable win over Shin Ahram.ReplyDelete
Get thee to a bank. Pronto!ReplyDelete
