Back in April we launched a competition to replace some of our How Muddy Are You? quiz questions with ones suggested by our members. We had lots of brilliant entries and strangely enough more than one person suggested our favourites so we’ve had to award more prizes than we first planned to.
First prize winner
The first prize winner is Emma, who has won a year’s free subscription to Muddy Matches for her roadkill question. A special prize of 1 month also goes to Paul, who suggested a similar question.
If we’re honest, we did call the authorities to check that it is legal to eat roadkill and if the commonly held belief that “if the person in front of you hit it, you can eat it” is true. The police informed us that you are not breaking the law by removing a dead rabbit from the road, but “you must be wary of your own safety”. If you hit a pet or a deer you must report it to the police!
So, back to the point, Emma’s winning question is as follows…
You accidentally run over a rabbit in your car. Do you:
- Check that it’s dead.
- Have it for dinner.
- Phone the vet.
- Drive on in tears. › Continue reading
A new BBC show, produced by Predictable Media is looking for single men who would like a makeover to help them to find a date.
Assistant producer Kat said:
“In the show, three of the best businesses compete to be named Best in Town. The show we are currently working on pitches three of the best beauticians in London against each other. There are three rounds in the show, and the final round, is the ultimate challenge that puts our beauticians to the test and under pressure.
Creatively, we were thinking of finding three single men who are looking for a date/ girlfriend, and our beauticians would be challenged to make them over, groom them, and help them feel confident ahead of a night of speed dates.”
If you would like to take part, please email Kat Yazhari.
We are delighted to announce that Theo Paphitis of Dragon’s Den fame has selected Muddy Matches as one of the winners of his prestigious Small Business Sunday accolades.
Each week Theo chooses six small businesses as winners and tweets them out to his 336,280 followers. Each winner of the competition, sponsored by Ryman Stationers also gets to post a profile on the Small Business Sunday website to let others know about their business.
If you run a small business and would like to receive a re‐tweet from Theo Paphitis, send him a tweet explaining why your business is the best in its field between 5PM and 7.30 PM on a Sunday night. Make sure you include the hashtag #SBS and follow @theopaphitis and @RymanStationary from your Twitter account.
It took almost a year for Muddy Matches to be picked as a winner, so don’t get disheartened if you haven’t been chosen straight away!
You may have noticed a single question popping up on the Muddy Matches homepage recently and wondered what it was all about. Over the next few weeks we will be asking a couple of questions each week and all will be revealed in good time!
Stay tuned to the Muddy Matches news page to find out the results and why we’re asking you these questions.
