From what I've heard, the number was 117. But I thought the election was 119 days from yesterday too.

It was 119. I'm guessing that 10 people didn't guess 119 and they had to take the closest, 117-121. Chico and someone else also picked the right # but they scored one anyway.

My first guess was 46, Obama's age. My 2nd guess was the election date which I thought was the 4th Tuesday in Nov. I was mixing it up with Turkey Day. Shows u how screwy and nervous I get when Emek has his sales. It doesn't surprise me that I have never had success. My heart beat changes and it's like I'm in the jungle and the hunt has begun. I hate that feeling. Congrats to all that got one.

This is almost handbill size 11 x 16 = $500. Some people get caught up in the hype. I could of made this. I feel sorry for the old guy. Obama looks like a nut case in the photo.

who the f@$#k is paying anything over 50$ for this? If you really want one bad enuf, dig up the Ali pic off the web, paste Obama, Hillary and McCain on it and your good.

Seriously, why would anyone pay that much for this print? I just don't get it.... too many folks with disposable income I guess...

This made me smile the first time I saw it, that makes it better than every other Obama poster IMO.

Yeah, I thought about it, but never actually sent it. I did send my first guess, but to the wrong address and it got sent back.
