Survey Winners! (And Other Odds/Ends)


"¢ Thanks to everyone who completed last week's survey. Our Cleveland office has randomly selected six winners:

—Lauren M. and Ed Hammerbeck get the mental_floss t-shirt of their choosing. — Air, Erin (whose email address has the word canary in it) and Adrienne Bruno have each won a free back issue of mental_floss magazine. — Kim Neon wins the Bob Dylan sketch book, The Drawn Blank Series.

Congrats! I'll be in touch about getting you those prizes.
