Well, it’s all over but the shouting. We had a lot of entries and many top contenders in the lead for most of the month of March, as fans left hilarious and insightful comments on blog posts old and new in Worleygig’s first ever Comment Contest, but there is certainly nothing shocking about the fact that our winner is Alice Cooper Fan Donna Shocka! Donna commented on the blog 30 times last month, beating out her closest competitor, Jim Ford, by 15 comments! Donna Shocka! Donna wins her choice of two T-shirts from The Neatoshop and the undying gratitude of The Worley Gig for all time! Congratulations Donna on your well-earned victory and thanks to everyone who participated!
