    loupe magnifier enclosure – just the right half of the prize, for those who have extras of the left half…

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    Wow, I think I need a bit more coffee in the morning… It should be correct now. The prize is the entire magnifier (not just the holder). I think by the time the contest is over the text will be correct. 😉

    >This is a ***** *****.

    Did you ever have someone ruin the suspense a movie by telling you what was about to happen?

    Did you ever have someone kill the enjoyment of reading a book by telling you the ending?

    Did you ever have someone take the fun out of a Name the Thing Contest by publicly posting the answer?

    Please don’t destroy this contest for everyone else. Thank you.
