Good afternoon,

Regrettably, 'Wordshore' is absent and therefore unable to fully use the e-Internet today. He has briefly awarded me access to his e-account, entrusting me to convey the results of a 'poop competition' for the month of January.

He has also requested I make reference to 'a plate of beans' within this e-mail.

I apologise for the lack of 'links', but I have not been given clear instruction regarding the method of their inclusion.

The winner of the aforementioned competition is 'Ambrosen', for the work 'Some poops are better than others'.

There are two runners-up:

1. 'Bella Donna', for the work 'Shit Happens; Business and Science Follow'.
2. 'MonkeyToes', for the work 'Wherever you go, there they are: A short history of portable toilets'.

In due course, 'Wordshore' will e-mail the aforementioned contestants about their prizes.

A plate of beans.
