Blog of the Day Awards for Wednesday July 19, 2006 Where is Basil - Basil the Donkey

Blog of the Day Awards for Wednesday July 19, 2006 - Where is Basil? - Basil the Donkey

Today's Blog of the Day Award was nominated by Benjamin Yoskovitz over at I Got News For You and he nominated a pet project of his called Where is Basil?

It's a new blog -- a bit of a viral marketing project that is shipping the Fawlty Towers DVD Collection around the world with Basil the Donkey.

Each person who signs up will get the DVDs from the previous person on the list. It's about building a fun community...

For a better explanation you can read What is this?
