And The Golden Shoe Award Goes To...

Not to keep you in suspense or anything, but before I announce the winner, I would like to say that I loved every entry. Each one would most definitely spark a different story line. I've made some creative friends here, and I thank you all for entering the contest.
My kids had a terrible time choosing because they also loved all the entries. After a great deal of deliberation...oh, who am I kidding...after a great deal of arguing, they finally narrowed it down to two possibilities. They liked Mooch (submitted by Whispering Writer) but felt the poor little guy also needed a last name. And they liked McGee (submitted by Struggling Writer). So my wise fifteen-year-old daughter suggested there be two winners. Thus, the name Mooch McGee was created.
Now, this might have been a problem had I offered a cash prize, but since the winner was only to receive the satisfaction of having named the penguin, I figured there was enough of that to split between the two.
So congratulate Whispering Writer and Struggling Writer, and of course, Mooch McGee. He finally has a name!
Okay, now on to new business. Now that the cute little guy has a name, he needs a story. So let's give him one. The Slumpbuster Challenge begins tomorrow. Check tomorrow's post for details on how it will work. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click on the penguin in my side bar.) I hope you will all join in. I think it will be fun!

Yay! I half win! I think the real winner here, though, is Mooch McGee :)

I'll have to start brainstorming some story ideas for the little guy.

Mooch McGee is much better than Rusty. Good job picking.

Really, all the names were great. But I do like Mooch McGee. Thanks again to all who participated!

Susan, thanks for following me. You've got me curious about this penquin. I'll have to go over and read what Mooch McGee is all about. Looking forward to getting to know you better in the cyber world.

What a cute name for an adorable penguin. My five year old is infatuated with penguins. I'll have to keep that name in mind for the next penguin he gets (which will be his millionth one). :)

I was infatuated with penguins when I was little too. That's why I loved that picture so much! Thanks for joining my blog!
