Act Fast, Because I Have an Extra Copy of Epic Swindle, That Book About Hicks and Liverpool

From the back cover of An Epic Swindle
Took a couple of weeks, but I just received my copy of  An Epic Swindle: 44 Months With a Pair of Cowboys, Daily Mirror columnist Brian Reade's just-published-in-the-U.K. 338-page recap of Tom Hicks' disastrous run as co-owner of Liverpool FC. So far, so good, though I feel like I've already lived this story. And only yesterday, at the Half-Price mothership, I found Into The Red: Liverpool FC And The Changing Face Of English Football. Think I'll begin at the end.

But here's the thing. Amazon UK sent two copies -- billed me for two, too. No big. We're happy to provide one Reds-loving, or Hicks-hating, Friend of Unfair Park with a tome. First one to complete this sentence in the comments wins the book: "Blow me _________."

But you gotta come up to Unfair Park HQ by noon tomorrow to collect. Otherwise, next person down gets it, and so on and so forth. And...go.

I protest this pommy twit's use of the word Cowboy as a perjorative. Cowboys are hard-working, frugal men who love their horses and respect women. They are not drunken fools looking to mess something up. Cowboys are an American icon, and represent the common man who perseveres in the face of adversity, whether it is rustlers, storms, or varmits. Or nitwit journalists who think they are special. I've known some cowboys, and I've known some reporters. Give me cowboys any day.

Technically, J did not complete the required sentence and thus is not eligible under the official DO rules and guidelines for this contest. I, on the other hand, now am:

Blow me you English pig-dog.   Go and boil your bottoms, sons of a silly person! I blow my nose at you!  I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough water! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! Now leave before I am forced to taunt you a second time!

 You make an excellent point, and while your answer is not technically correct, I would like to also extend to you a copy of the 2011 bound edition of The Newberg Report.

Dallas O retweeted this 2 seconds ago, and you already picked the winner? :P

My apologies: I've properly scolded our web ed for tweeting this quick hit, which I just threw up on Unfair Park the moment the book hit the mailbox. That said, J, if COB doesn't show tomorrow, the book is yours. And you want a copy of the book Punching Tom Hanks, which also arrived as a promo, then it's all yers.
