Announcing another Bumbastories contest! This one is political and it’s really big. Winners of the contest will win either $58,000,000 (that’s 58 million buckeroos, my friends) or alternatively a free copy of Baum’s first novel Up in The Bronx.  This is not a hoax. This is for real. (And if you believe that, then there’s this bridge in Brooklyn that I could get for you for a very good price)
