CONTEST...

BOBBIE FAYE'S (kinda, sorta, not exactly) FAMILY JEWELS has hit the stores!

(If you're new to Bobbie Faye, think "action/adventure" and comedy. Or as I like to explain, if Elmore Leonard and Janet Evanovich were to have a bastard love child, it would be Bobbie Faye. Here's where you can see the craziness that went on in book one: here.... and an except of book two: here.)

And to celebrate, it's CONTEST time.

We (and by we, I mean the super cool, amazing and fabulous Michele Bardsley and Dakota Cassidy) are running a blog contest today. Bobbie Faye has been slammed by the editor of her local paper--she owes him money--she sort of blew up a couple of things and ran over a few other things that he owned and he's really not happy about this. She's trying to pay him back by doing an advice column.


Three letters to Bobbie Faye and her BAD advice back... means THREE chances to win... read the letter and then see what ya gotta do to enter below.


And now here's the latest letter to plague Bobbie Faye:

Dear Bobbie Faye:

I have a sort of itty bitty problem. My girlfriend says I'm accident prone, and I'm beginning to think she's right. I'm not sure what to do about it. First, that radio fell in the bathtub, and honest-to-God, I don't remember setting it up there on the edge of the tub, and I almost didn't make it out of there fast enough. And then the bed caught on fire--man, that was a freak accident! I could have sworn the iron wasn't even plugged in on the ironing board next to the bed, but Sally says I sleepwalk sometimes, and turn things on. And then yesterday, the gun fell out of the closet, hit the floor and shot a hole clean through the other side of the bedroom. It's getting to where I just don't know what I'm gonna do next, and Sally and her good friend, the doctor, say there's nothing wrong with me, that I'm just clumsy.

I see you've gone through a whole slew of crazy disasters, and you're still in one piece. Can you give me some advice to help me not be so clumsy?


Signed,


Not Who You Think It Is




Dear Not A Lick of Sense:

Harold. Honey. I know that's you. I tried to tell you last year when the car fell off the jack stands while you were working underneath it that maybe Sally hadn't quite forgiven you for that time with Loretta. It's probably a good bet that she's also found out about Cindy. And probably Mary Lou. And I don't care how you want to think about it, no guy accidentally falls into another woman's vagina. Ever.

And Harold? The UPS guy mentioned he'd just delivered a big ass chain saw to your house, so you might want to re-think that whole nooner thing you've got going with Betsy Ann and get busy packing, while you still have parts to pack.

signed,

Bobbie Faye

Hmmm...actually, I read the letter asking for advice and Bobbie Faye's reply rather makes sense in a very public, two-by-four over the head kind of way.

Stupendous advice! Get out of Dodge while the gettin's good! Sheesh, shoulds like Harold needs a motto for his tombstone: Here lies Harold, who found out how to come and go at the same time.....what a way to go! I think it's so cool how Bobbie Faye "recognized" Harold and cutting to the chase, told him just what to do.....she was probably laughing her fangs/tail off!`

Harold wouldn't last two minutes if I found him cheating. And forget making it look like an accident. They would never find the body.

Well, since I don't personally know Harold I can't say much about him. But it seemed fairly obvious to me after reading the letter that the ever helpful Sally was in fact helping with the "accidents". I Love Bobbie Faye's advice and hope that Harold takes it, post haste. Can you imagine what kind of damage a chain saw would do.......

Wow Harold. You sound exactly like my accident prone hubby. Somehow, he "accidently" kinked his oxygen hose in the middle of the night and woke up gasping for air. Whew, close one!hahaha

Blogger double T said...

I think Bobbie Faye's advice is a great idea however if Harold is this slow at getting the hint, do you really think he will listen? He sound like he is related to my ex-husband, but I would never do anything like that to him even if he really deserved it. (Honest Officer, ask one of his many girl friends instead.)

It seems a little unusual that Bobbie Faye is telling someone else how to avoid disastrous events....but who would know more about them? Glad I'm not married to Harold.

Now every good southern woman knows the best way to 'accidentaly' lose a cheetin man is to take him fishin down at the 'secret' home farm pond! And Sally has the added luck to live close by some of the best gator swamps in the world! LOL
Bet ol Harold would love a beer or two (dozen) and before he even realized he'd been pushed... er SLIPPED he'd be havin the time of his life rollin round with more female than even he could handle!
Damn! Now I'm homesick!

If Harold is attached to his parts, as so many guys are, then he needs to follow Bobbie Faye's advice and pack his parts and then keep them packed!

Unless Harold's legally blind, I wouldn't think using the excuse about looking for the vagina's, I'm sorry... Mary Lou's, braile inspected by sticker on her panties, will keep his ass out of trouble. Bobby Faye's advice is sound. I'd suggest grabbing his own panties and joining a monestary

Not only is Bobbie Faye's advice right on, Harold's letter has given me a good excuse not to iron! After all, wrinkle free clothing isn't worth the risk of setting the bed on fire.

Damn, I love you people. You made my DAY. I was out all day, and this is freaking amazing to come home to.

Now Harold, on the other hand, had better run for the hills. I love the Witness Protection program--he is seriously gonna need it. ;)

I think Bobbie Faye's gonna have to answer more letters each week. Make it a regular Friday thing.

Hi

Bobbie sounds like a person who has an answer for everything if you just listen carefully, choose which part to accept, or even test your understanding. Just love the accidentally falling into a vagina comment.. the mental image was something to die for or die laughing. Thanks for the best laugh for the day.

Are you absolutely sure that no guy ever falls into some other woman's vagina by accident? I mean, are you really really sure? My best friend's cousin's roommate said that she knew a guy it happened to. For real!

(And now I've been dragged into another book series I just have to read... I swear, if I didn't know better, I'd say Dakota and Michele -- and you too Toni -- are part of one heck of a huge conspiracy to part me from my money and have books take up space in my apartment.)
