So there were quite a few excellent entries for the Burn Notice Contest last week. I asked contestants to send in their favorite Micheal Weston moment, real or made up, and I would pick my favorite and publish it here. These are my 3 favorites. Unfortunately numbers 2 and3 don't win anything put seeing their stories published.
Of course while there were some great entries there were some that got thrown out because they didn't follow the rules and only sent in their name and address, so make sure to follow the rules.
So here's the stories:
2nd Runner-Up: Bob Kelso of Florida (Real Name held for anonymity)
Here is my Michael Weston moment (and yes, it is true):
Runner-Up: Sean Breckling of The Internet
For my best friend's bachelor party, I concocted a scheme to "collect" him.
I had a couple of fake letters mailed to him from a fake lawyer in California, saying that he was implicated as a potential father in a paternity case regarding their "client" (who's name was intentionally out). The "law firm" was going to pay for him to have his DNA analyzed, if he went to one of the four pre-determined appointments, three of which had conveniently passed by the time he got the letter.
To add authenticity, I had the letters mailed from California by a friend of ours, and made sure the address was a mid-shabby office building in Sacramento.
When he received the letters, he immediately called me, freaking out about this development, and tearfully confessed the whole story to his fiance (whom was in on the gag). He went as far as to make a list of every woman he had been intimate with, over the years. (The fact that it easily fit on a post-it was particularly funny, come bar-night.)
The following day he went to his "appointment", letters-in-hand, where the guys and I were waiting, grinning ear to ear. It took him a few seconds to register that he had been had, but once he did, he yelled "I've never been so happy to be so pissed!!".
And the winner is: Mark Judge of Dallas, Texas
Congrats to Mark!
