We took a trip in the way back machine for the fake ad in the Fall Community Observer. The ad, for perennial political candidate Ed Nimby, appeared on page 43 of the issue.

Several veteran Fake Adders recognized Nimby’s name from previous Fake Ads and previous campaigns. And while it might seem like cheating to bring him back, we couldn’t let this remarkable political season pass by without getting old Ed involved.

Dexter’s Larry Stalker won our drawing among the twenty-seven correct entries we received. He’s taking his gift certificate to the Common Grill in Chelsea.

The last name of Shirley Frederickson, who won our Summer issue contest, was concealed in the list of politicians endorsing Ed. Larry’s is hidden in the Fake Ad in this issue.

To enter the Winter Community Observer Fake Ad contest, identify the fake ad in the Winter Community Observer by name and page number. Enter by email (jim@aaobserver.com) or by mail (Community Observer Fake Ad, 2390 Winewood, Ann Arbor, MI 48103). The deadline for entries is Wednesday, February 1.
