Southeast Michigan Realty

Fake Ad: March 2018

by Jay Forstner

From the April, 2018 issue

We received 118 entries correctly identifying the Fake Ad for Southeast Michigan Realty on page 82 of the March issue. The last name of February's winner, Cynthia Radcliffe, was contained, sort of, as "that kid from the Harry Potter movies."

"That kid from the Harry Potter movies is, of course, actor Daniel Radcliffe," wrote Mike Thomsen. "No relation (I presume) to Cynthia Radcliffe, last month's winner. Now I'm going to press 'send' and Slytherin under the wire for your noon deadline!"

"Expecto Real Estate," wrote Chad Rupley. "The Southeast Michigan Realty ad is the Fake for March."

Smilka Zdravkovska, newly minted Observer super-friend, was also under the Fake Ad's spell, but "I shouldn't win," she wrote. "Embedding my last name in the next month's Fake Ad will pose too much of a challenge." She may be right.

Gerald Smith's entry was drawn as our winner. He's taking his gift certificate to Zingerman's.


To enter this month's contest, find the fake ad in the April issue and follow the instructions in the box at the bottom of the Back Page. The fake ad always contains the name of last month's winner in some form.    (end of article)
