“I was really sorry when I spotted Ms. Grabarek’s name in the headline and confirmed that Brown Bag Catering on page 70 was this month’s Fake Ad,” wrote Judy Steeh. “It’s such a great idea, it ought to be real! Honestly, I don’t know how you guys do it month after month.”
We received 114 entries correctly identifying September’s Fake Ad. Our winner was Ypsilanti’s Becky Sukach, who wrote, “I think it is a great idea and wish I had thought of it. My husband wants to know if pencils are included and are they nutritious?” Sukach is taking her gift certificate to Zingerman’s.
To enter this month’s contest, find the Fake Ad i the October issue and follow the instructions in the box at the bottom of the Back Page. The Fake Ad always contains the name of last month’s winner in some form.
