May Day Contest - CLOSED


As the Russians are preparing for their May Day Parade, we offer our second annual May Day Obama Cuss Jar contest!


About:

There will be TWO WINNERS: you, and the blogger or source who sent you here! Both will get the Commie Obama Rally Cap and Bottle of Leninade - the two most coveted bourgeois trophies of the Obama Revolution!

Rules:

Add your guess in the comments below. Guesses MUST consist of a dollar value guess (no cents) AND the name of the referrer. If you don't have a referrer, pick one of the cool bloggers in our Blogroll!

One guess per person please.

Contest ends at noon EST on Sunday.

If two guesses are equal - one higher and one lower by the same amount - the tie goes to the lower.

The first of duplicate guesses will be considered.

Hints:

The jar is 10 inches tall, and 7 inches in diameter.

The jar contains 10 $100 bills and an unknown quantity of $1 bills. $1000 converted into $100 bills on December 14, 2009.

Previous Cuss Jar Contests: July 2009, $124, May Day 2010, $602, December 2010, $978.

A classic:

Ushanka Tips to those linking to our contest: Andrea Shea-King, IOwnTheWorld, The People's Cube.

Happy May Day, and may the best Comrade-Blogger team win!
