I asked you to immortalize your most embarrassing Bar Mitzvah photos by submitting them to this contest, and the results are in. On a side note: When my Dad saw the original post he was upset because he did not like that I was joking about my special day. Let it be known that I was not making fun of my Bat Mitzvah, or the Mitzvah tradition in general. I was celebrating what is truly a very special day in the lives of Hebe boys and girls- Men and Women- everywhere.

Congratulations to MCA, whose leather and lace piano portrait, not to mention self-styled hair, has earned her a victory. Email me for your well-deserved prize, MCA!

Honorable mention goes out to the following, in no particular order:
