Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Contest: Caption This, Win Oils

By Mark Sisson
318 Comments

The Prize:

There’s a little shop in Denver that sells some of the finest olive oils on the country. EVOO Marketplace is offering a gift basket of two top shelf olive oils and two balsamic vinegars to the winner of today’s contest. If you’re an olive oil connoisseur, check out some of their more intense flavors like black truffel and blood orange olive oils.

But the oils don’t stop with olives. Tropical Traditions is back with another offering of coconut oil and palm oil. A 32 oz. jar of each, that’s half a gallon of delicious, healthy, tropical fat. A special note, this palm oil comes from family farms in West Africa, not Southeast Asia, so you can use this stuff knowing orangutans aren’t being wiped out for the benefit of your taste buds.

The Contest:

Caption contest! Here’s the photo:

Leave a caption in the comment board. Examples:

“Mammoth does not approve of red cup policy.”

“Who knew Capri pants were invented in the  Bronze age?”

Make your own. Best caption wins.

The Deadline:

Midnight, Tonight!

Who is Eligible:

Sorry non-USers, these are consumables. A prize of equal value will be substituted in the case of an international winner.

The primal hunting party was one of the most efficient predatory packs in all of human history as evidenced by their lifelike mammoth decoy, spears, animal hides, fluorescent shoe laces and, of course, the wife beater undershirt.
