A contest that your dad hopes you enter


There's a new contest out there for fathers across America, sponsored by Great American Cookies. They know what they're doing, because I have a feeling every dad around will want their kids to enter.

Anyone who writes up a 200-word essay on why their father is a great American dad is entered in a contest in which the grand prize winner receives a 52-inch flat-panel LCD HDTV, Blu-ray disc player and home theater system.

The first runner up gets the aforementioned TV, but without the other gadgetry.

The five runner ups after that -- a $50 gift certificate to Great American Cookies.
