George RR will kill you for $20K

Two lucky "Game Of Thrones" fans with $20,000 to spare are going to get the ultimate honor: author George R.R. Martin will name a character for each of them in the next book in the "Song of Ice and Fire" series.
The prizes are among the honors and awards Martin is giving to donors who pitch in and help two of his favorite causes: the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in New Mexico and the The Food Depot of Santa Fe.

For $10, you can win a helicopter ride -- with Martin -- to see the wolves.
"In addition to touring the Sanctuary together, we'll also have plenty of time to discuss the show, 'A Song of Ice and Fire,' direwolves -- and if there's anything you have ever wanted to ask me, here's your chance!" Martin writes on the website.

Pitch in a little more and you can win other prizes.

For $25, you can receive an e-card. For $50, you can win a T-shirt. Other prize levels include a signed map of Westeros for $350, a signed cookbook for $600 and a handwritten thank-you card for $1,200.

But the big bucks net you the top prizes, like Martin's hat ($7,500) or breakfast with the man himself ($15,000).

For $20,000, you can be immortalized in the next "Song of Fire and Ice" book.
"You can
choose your character's station in the world (lordling, knight, peasant, whore, lady, maester, septon, anything)," the offer reads.
But, no matter what station you choose, your character probably won't enjoy a happy ending. In fact, it's pretty much a guarantee that you won't.
This is a George R.R. Martin novel after all. Just in case you're holding out hope, the website warns: "You will certainly meet a grisly death!"
Only two people will win the full character treatment, and both $20,000 prizes were quickly snapped up, but many of the other prizes still remain.
Get all the details on the official Prizeo website.

Plus, I think it's safe to say that, no matter how much we appreciate Mr. Bob Dole (and we do), he doesn't hold a candle to steak and bjs.

Frankly, I'm looking forward to tomorrow which is Pie and BJ day, the holiday originally established by Charlemagne to acknowledge the Khazar kingdom's conversion to Judaism and the remarkable ability of Byzantine women to both bake and control their gag reflex.
