Otherwise Loyal D'Fan Misses His Own D'Fining Moment of D'Fame

It has come to the attention of the Alameda Daily Noose and me that our Noosiversary Quiz Grand Prize winner, Mr. Lou D'Fan, did not receive his prize as we intended. As we mentioned at the time, we could think of no better prize than a prominent mention in the Alameda Daily Noose. Unfortunately, Mr. D'Fan did not get the thrill of seeing his name printed in the Alameda Daily Noose on the day when we announced his random selection from our pool of perfect quiz scores. In fact, Mr. D'Fan only this week became aware of the honor that we granted him, and only secondhand.

Everybody loves the smell of a fresh scoop in the morning, and Mr. D'Fan was accidentally deprived of the thrill of learning of his victory in that manner. Consequently, the Alameda Daily Noose and I are awarding a consolation prize to Mr. D'Fan. A gift certificate to the Dusty Shelves Market and a fine bottle of Loopy Dodo merlot are waiting for him at the Alameda Daily Noose World Headquarters. Being, as he is, a true Right-Thinking Alamedan, Mr. D'Fan undoubtedly knows where that is, and what our hours are.

Again, congratulations to Mr. Lou D'Fan.
