Well, the closing date's been reached and the entries are all in. The tension mounts as fans from all over the world bombard the site to see which one of them has won the coveted prize of...
Oh, who am I fucking kidding. One entry. That was it. And with all due respect to the person concerned, it wasn't a particularly good entry: so if anyone else had written in, they could have had a fair to middling chance of winning a copy of the Cheap Sex & Sad Films compilation CD. Your loss.
Anyhoo, congratulations to occasional letters page contributor Uncle Tony of London, England, who guessed that the line "cheap sex and sad films" is sung 28 minutes and 17 seconds before the end of the CD. In fact, the figure I was looking for was 40 minutes and 41 seconds, but like I said, he's the closest out of a field of one.
Watch out for another exciting competition next year! Or, more accurately, don't.
