Contest: Show Your Lunch. Get Maced.

The Prize:

A short mace! We’ve talked maces before; they’re Primal, they’re effective, and they’re so darned fun. Today’s mace comes from Stronger Grip. No overseas, mass-produced, Wal-Mart brand fitness here. These things are hand crafted by Ryan Pitts in his garage in a small town in Iowa. He sent me one a few weeks back, and the Worker Bees have been taking mace breaks ever since (no broken windows or computers yet, but we’ve really got to start using it outside). If you’re interested in buying your own, Stronger Grip is offering a 5% discount to anyone who mentions my name when calling to order.

The Contest:

Send me a pic of your lunch. Is it a big ass salad? Is it a giant wad of pemmican? Whatever it is, I want to see it. Like the breakfast contest, I’ll be making a collage of photos out of the submissions, so feel free to glam your ham or pimp your shrimp with photogenic garnish. But of course, the winner will be selected in a random drawing, so any snap shot will do. Email me the picture along with the subject heading: “Show Your Lunch”. As long as it’s your lunch and it’s not mac & cheese, you’re entered to win.


In case you don’t know what a lunch looks like… My lunch:

This prize is only available to residents of the 48 contiguous states. [If you don’t live in the U.S. and you win I’ll ship you a bottle of my Master Formula instead, and the mace will go to an alternate winner.]

The Contest End Time:

Midnight, August 20th. That’s Thursday, so hurry up and snap a photo!

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

A random drawing will be held among all entrants who submit adequate photos.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Cool…I’ve got grilled lamb chops, asparagus and salad on the menu today! Will make sure I get a pic of it

      • Hey Mark. Busy as can be. Enjoying the outdoors weather while we have it. Once winter hits and I am cooped up inside, I anticipate more frequent visits! lol
