So I entered this contest

which I have a snowball's chance in hell of winning.  Alas I never like to just roll over.  I will do what little (very little) I can to give it the old college try.

Long story short it's something that Walmart is offering where you vote for a product and the entries with the most votes get the chance to sell their wares on walmart.com.  I know, I know.  Walmart's evil.  It's taking over the world.  It exploits people.  But that doesn't mean it's a bad thing to get a good product in there.  As I recall an organic food activist saying after his products were placed on Walmart shelves, to paraphrase, "People think I'm getting in bed with the devil. But Walmart's so big it is where real change can happen."

Now my stuff's not organic.  It's not good for you.  In fact if you eat it, it would be very bad for you.  But I think it's cool that Walmart is empowering small businesses and entrepreneurs.  Sure they'll probably rip the hearts right out of the winner's bodies.  But if I win, I'll make sure to film that bit and put it on youtube so my family can become internet millionaires (or whatever you become when you get a lot of hits on youtube).

So here's the link to vote:

You can vote once a day.  So vote early, and vote often.  There's really nothing better to vote for.  American Idol is so five years ago and the presidential race is full of people as ethically suspect as Walmart.  Sure, I may be ethically suspect too.  But the difference between them and me?  I admit it.  So a vote for Knotwork is a vote for an honest sell out.

I thank you for your time.

Oh, and here's my video submission for the contest:
