The Envelope Please

I'm here to announce the winners of yesterday's eBay scavenger hunt, "What Will You Find For A T-Shirt?"

First of all, give yourselves a round of applause. Great response, in quality and quantity. Picking winners was incredibly hard; I wish I could give you all free t-shirts and back issues. But that's why I'm not allowed near the order fulfillment center.

The first runner-up, and winner of the mental_floss back issue of her choice, is Heather. It may not look like much, but this M.C. Hammer snap bracelet takes me right back to a time when we wore snap bracelets and listened to "U Can't Touch This" on repeat. Extra points were awarded for the seller description: "Hammer pants and attitude not included."

And the winner is...

I'm not sure how this works, but I loved this paragraph: "Reznikoff holds the Guinness World Record for the largest and most valuable collection of celebrity hair. Reznikoff's collection also includes such figures as Napoleon, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. In total, the collection is valued at over $5 million dollars."

Stay tuned for a post on the most famous celebrity hair.

We'll do this again soon.
