Obama Cuss Jar Contest - CLOSED

Our Obama Cuss Jar has runneth over in response to Obama's 2nd attempt to squelch our religious liberty.


Time for a contest so this bitter clinger can convert his $1's into $100's (or into precious metals), and start cussing anew!


About:

There will be TWO WINNERS: you, and the blogger or source who sent you here! Both will receive the Commie Obama Hat and Bottle of Leninade.

Rules:

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

One guess per person please.

Contest ends at noon EST on Sunday, February 19.  Check back then, and send us your contact information if you are the winner!

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.  There is no lid on the jar in the photo.

The jar contains a known quantity (bottom) and an unknown quantity (top).

Known: 10 $100 bills and 340 $1 bills.  You can see the $100's at the bottom, then the $340.

Unknown: The large stack of $1s.

There are no bills hidden from view.  See larger picture.

You are guessing the total amount in the jar, so be sure to guess over $1340! 



Previous Contests:
July 2009, $124, Winner: B... from SondraKistan,
December 2010, $978,  Winner: Doc from IOTW
May Day 2011, $1340, Winner: Simply Amazed from IOTW

Thanks for the links back:  Bird Ankles, IOTW, RobertaX

IOTW has a hat conversation too...

2.19.12 - We have a winner!

The total in the jar is $2080.

Anon from RobertaX wins with their guess of $2090.


Honorable mention goes to:

Larry, $2040, RobertaX
Jack Daniels, $2107, IOTW
OrbitUp, $2042, IOTW
NinnyBau, $2100, IOTW
Freeman, $2012, unknown source
Texan59, $2107, unknown source

We traded the cash in for 8oz of silver and 1oz of gold.  Why let our Dear Leader reduce the value of this cuss jar over the course of the next year?  If my cussing hasn't sent a clear message, maybe these coins will...


We hope the cuss jar will retire in January 2013.  I'll then need help deciding on how to spend the money.  The Bill Wilson, or The Custom Classic?
