Like teachers said to me time and time again while I was taking standardized tests back in high school: "there are correct answers, and there are more-correct answers." This was the case of Puzzle #96.
Dutiful solvers (or those who just cheated and looked at the answers) found the long message to read "ON WHAT COMMON / OBJECT WOULD YOU / FIND THE LETTERS / C, D, E, F, L, O, P, T AND Z?
Typically, you type in the clue, and the first result staring back at you is the entry your supposed to put in. Here's the evidence: Jimmy's band, The Lords of Hawthorne, was apparently ripping up their cover of Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way" at the time the photo was snapped. Though careful observers will note this pic was taken one month ago, I say: "whatever." This whole section segues nicely to an announcement: ANNOUNCEMENT: Heretofore, if any crazed fan of this here blog wishes to snap a picture of themselves in one of the t-shirts, drinking from one of the coffee mugs, or doing one of my puzzles (preferably in a cool setting; extra bonus points for an overseas snap or historical landmark, extra extra bonus points if the picture involves a celebrity), not only will I run it here on the blog, you'll get either your choice of any book I've written or my choice of something from my condo I don't want anymore.
Anyway, that picture underneath today's puzzle is me with the bowl with the names of all the contestants who got the answer correct.
Without further ado, the winners are: Tim French, Jenny Gutbezahl, George Heard, Lon Heuer and Stewart Levine.

If, and I emphasize this, IF THEY CORRECTLY UNDERSTOOD THE SIMPLE RULES OF PHYSICS, they would know, that INCREASING ANTENNA GAIN ACTUALLY IS THE LAST THING THEY SHOULD DO.

Even the Wikipedia page lists N as a character on the chart. I guess every letter on the chart, but you get the picture.
There's nothing more frustrating than confirming a crossword entry by typing in the clue verbatim and then getting Rex Parker's and Amy Reynaldo's blogs as the 1, 2 punch. He thought about it for a minute and said it was the letters on the eye chart and sure enough, that's the first four rows. [gulp] Anyway, I rechecked the fact in the book where I got the idea for the puzzle in the first place: no Ns. Huge thanks to all who tweeted/Facebooked/started a class about puzzles and put my blog as part of the curriculum/hired a skywriter/forced people at gunpoint to do the puzzle/etc. One contestant, Jimmy Dale writes: "I have attached some pics of me onstage wearing my BEQ shirt…we played for a crowd of 50-60 people that night, so hopefully that qualifies me for the 10 times bonus! And kudos for Jimmy for getting one of the limited edition R-Rated t-shirts.
