Organic, grass-fed, grass-finished beef jerky, dried mango, roasted and salted macadamia nuts, marcona almonds and dried cranberries, all conveniently vacuum-sealed into perfect serving sizes and delivered directly to your front door? Umm… yes please! And don’t forget Primal Pacs have no preservatives, grains or gluten, so they’re perfectly Primal.

The lucky winner of today’s contest gets 25 Large Primal Pacs. Retail value: $160.

Bonus: Use promo code “mda” for free shipping. Good for only two days.

And all you have to do for a chance to win is…

The Contest:

Have a topic, subject, or good idea for a blog post on MDA? Now’s your chance to suggest it. In the comments section below, leave a title for a future post on Mark’s Daily Apple.

That’s pretty much it. Tell me what you’d like to see covered on MDA with just the article title, and do it with as much creativity and cleverness as you can.

Each title submitted counts as one contest entry. Five entries per person are allowed.

Eligibility:

Any U.S. resident. Sorry worldwide readers. Most countries prohibit import of meat products.

The Contest End Time:

September 23, midnight, PDT.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

I’ll pick a winner and will use submissions for future MDA article ideas.

To track all the contests visit the 2012 Primal Blueprint 21-Day Challenge Contest Page for daily updates.

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.

    • I can assure you this: if a raccoon is in a tree and you climb after it, it will probably climb out along a branch hoping you won’t follow. You can then shake this branch, causing it to fall out of the tree. Raccoons are tough though so it might able to run away before you climb back down.
      And possums can be easily stomped to death. Well, it might take quite a few stomps, but eventually the skull will break. After that they can be kicked around like a football.
      I really should have eaten that possum.. and it really shouldn’t have bitten me when I didn’t do anything threatening. Stupid hostile varmints.

      Animanarchy wrote on October 31st, 2012
      • I once stomped a squirrel’s head in on the street in front of a bunch of strangers. The first stomp shattered its skull and the second one kind of flattened its whole head. I had shoes on so it wasn’t that much of a.. mean feet.
        It was lying there mangled with its tail twitching, I suppose hit by a car, maybe it fell out of a tree onto the road.
        that was just a couple days after holding someone’s head and staring into his eyes with a caring expression on my face as he faded, after his girlfriend stabbed him near the heart, partially over a fight over a bottle of alcohol, after I encouraged her to pour me a bunch of that alcohol… it feels good to get that out.

      The kids can still trick or treat….but they can turn in their candy (which is sent overseas to troops) for money and prizes! ;)
