Happy Spring Break, everybody. Whether you’re having a blast on South Padre Island, rocking out at South by Southwest, watching Disney Channel marathons with your out-of-school kids, or, y’know, working, I hope it’s a good one.
I don’t mean to drag you away from whatever you’re doing – for heaven’s sake, if you’re driving somewhere with your family, DO NOT read the Watson Wire right now. Just pull over onto the shoulder there, come to a complete stop, and go through it in its entirety, no matter which of your loved ones are screaming or glaring at you. It’s totally worth it. Better yet, read it out loud to everyone in the car.
I’m excited to show you some of the entrants from the #GetCovered Meme Contest that I’m sponsoring with the Young Invincibles. We received a bunch of phenomenal entries – you folks are a smart, creative, not-at-all sick bunch.
I’m very pleased with the enthusiasm. Check in at my Facebook page on Friday, when I’ll reveal (dramatically) the finalists.
Then you’ll all have a week to vote for your favorite by clicking “Like” on the meme that you, umm, like. On Friday the 21st, I’ll announce the winner, who’ll get a VIP tour of the Texas Capitol, four VIP tickets to my annual “Concert Under the Stars,” and all of the notoriety that comes with being celebrated in the Watson Wire.
Just ask my pal Alfonso how special the Watson Wire treatment can be.
Anyway, here are some of my favorite memes so far:
I look forward to putting this to a vote. Stay tuned.
