BCME AUNTY JACK DVD COLLECTION WINNER
We were expecting a number of entries to threaten to ‘rip’ our ‘bloody arms off’,
and they did, too! Some looked forward to an opportunity of looking nostalgically back, others
compared Aunty Jack’s fashion to that of ‘old English aunts’. Two entries tickled us most pink.
One from our runner up, Garry Benson, who gave us An A-Zof Aunty Jack’s DVDs:
A Brilliant Comedy Delight! Everyone Finds Great Humour In Jack’s Krazy Life. Many
New Opportunities Provided. Quiet? Ridiculous! Special Times U Value With Xcellent
Our winner Brad Wrightson pretty much sent us a ransom note, once again threatening
“I will trade Aunty’s long-lost glove for your DVD collection. I’ll rip your
bloody arms off!”
However, what made it the winning entry was that the letters were
pasted to a golden boxing glove, not unlike Aunty’s own.
