It’s time for our traditional Yuletide Contest – millions cheer!

This year, we didn’t go for a DVD (most of Damian’s fans already have a complete collection at home):

WIN A PROMO PICTURE OF DAMIAN O’HARE AS ELLISON HATFIELD!

Damian O'Hare as Ellison Hatfield in History's "Hatfields & McCoys"

Damian O’Hare as Ellison Hatfield in History’s “Hatfields & McCoys”

It’s a real photo (a little different from the one displayed above), not a print-out, so you can frame it in gold and tinsel and hang it over your sofa, stick it inside your locker or donate it to your local pub. Of course you can also get it signed (if we ever learn where to send autograph requests to, that is).

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

Real chocolate. Handmade. Not the tasteless factory stuff – chocolate-chocolate. Milk, dark, white, nuts, orange – your choice!

And what do you have to do to win picture and chocolate?

Just send an email to

webgnome at ambarussa. net

and answer the following question:

“Who was Ellison Hatfield?”

A) The drummer of “Hatfield and the North”

B) The brother of “Devil” Anse Hatfield

C) The mayor of Springfield

Now that’s difficult.

IMPORTANT: Please put “Contest” or “Damian O’Hare” in the subject line.

Deadline: 16th December, 2012, noon GMT.
