July 2019 Fake Ad
by Jay Forstner
From the August, 2019 issue
We received 182 entries correctly identifying the Fake Ad for "Discover Oman!" on page 62 of the July issue. The last name of the previous winner, Dan Romanchik, was hidden in the ad's headline and Chi Kappa Phi, the fraternity supposedly sponsoring the Persian Gulf trip.
"You should really work on your fake ad hiding technique," wrote Joseph McConnell. "I was able to spot it during the walk from my mailbox to my front door. While the Gulf of Oman might be a beautiful place it seems rather dicey to be there when our country and the country to the north of the Gulf are engaging in a disastrous game of brinkmanship. Maybe some places are off the beaten path for a reason."
But a few Fake Adders, including David Karl, pointed out that Oman is indeed becoming a popular tourist destination and that it is an excellent place to spot the endangered Arabian Sea humpback whale.
Our winner was Lindsay Pawlowski. She's taking her gift certificate to Found.
To enter this month's contest, find the fake ad in the August 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.
