Note: Deuce of Clubs associate Gail W. (who slapped Wagner in psycholockup in a northern Arizona mental health facility in '98) conceived the Slim Whitman Contest and coded these pages. (Don't miss the Slim Wagner graphic.)

We have a WINNER!

(Read on to find out about the contest, or click the graphic to find out who won.)

"Una paloma blanca,
I'm just a bird in the sky . . . "

To your right is Baptist Bob, the Chaplain of Bourbon Street, who MUST love the song "Una Paloma Blanca," especially when sung by Slim Whitman, the King of Una Paloma Blanca!
The Una Paloma Blanca Singing Contest was created to celebrate the song and its king, Slim Whitman.

The crowning point of the song is when Slim breaks into "Una paloma blancaahh - aahhh - AAAAHHHH!" If you can re-create or top the power of Slim, then enter!

Here are the rules:

1. You must be a male or a female. This is not a tough one. There are two categories, divided by gender. There is a First Prize Male Vocalist, First Prize Female Vocalist and two Most Humorous Runner Ups in each category.

2. A cappela is fine, so is instrumental accompaniment. If you can re-create the "Hawaiian" feel of the pineapple slide and marching band tempo, then go for it! But, only the vocalist will be rewarded.

3. Send your tape to:

Una Paloma Blanca
c/o Deuce of Clubs
(Tapes will not be returned.)

4. Prizes have not yet been determined, but they will be good!

5. Please include your name, address, phone number or e-mail, and a brief biography with your submission.

6. The deadline is Jan. 1 1999, winners will be posted on Deuce of Clubs shortly thereafter.

7. Have fun!

Think of Andy Kaufman's Rose Marie or Chris Isaak, who should do a recording of UPB!

Also, I think this should be the official song of the Libertarian party, how about you?
