“Whether you sniff it smoke it eat it or shove it up your ass the result is the same: addiction.” – William S. Burroughs
Have you ever entered a contest for something knowing you were not going to win? Yeah, I did that once. Almost a year ago now, when TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” was in its prime, or plateauing I suppose. They would have weekly ‘contests’ on Twitter. Essentially you had to tweet them a photo of your ‘strange addiction’ with the hashtag, along with a photo. I was unaware of this contest for 3 weeks, until I randomly saw it one night. I was wearing my pink flannel adult onesies. So I figured, why not jokingly send in a photo.. At the end of the week, I see this.
I had to supply them with my mailing address, and I received a gift card in the mail. Along with the gift card, I also received a congratulatory letter – I think they were essentially thanking me for being their “freak of the week”.
