Attorney Godfrey Finger
April's Fake ad outed.
by Jay Forstner
We received 168 entries last month identifying the Fake Ad as the one for the law offices of Godfrey Finger and one entry identifying it as the one "about the holistic dog." Can you guess which one's the right answer?
"FOUND IT!" writes Rachel Toon after spotting the ad, which offered veterans a chance to be compensated for the stories of their military experience. "I am so excited! I never find these! I noticed this because, indeed, I have terminated the command of an insane renegade colonel, complete with extreme prejudice. But then when I saw the address, including R Borweb, I realized I would not ever receive true compensation for smelling napalm in the morning."
Our winner is Lynne Leadholm. At press time, she had yet to select her prize.
To enter this month's contest, spot the phony in the May print issue, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the "Back Page."
