I know I promised we'd announce a winner for our Banana Bella: Keep It Together contest on the 16th, but I forgot. To my credit, I did remember in the middle of the night, and had brief anxiety, before I fell back asleep. I finally counseled with the Master of Ceremonies this afternoon, and we are pleased to share with you that we have found a winner.
Before I announce the winner, I'd like to take a minute to drag it out like they do on reality shows. Thank you for all of your entries. It was fun to see what you did, and it helped make the last few months more enjoyable. This has been a really weird time for all of us, and I hope you're making it out all right.
As for the logistics of our final draw, for every entry you submitted, I wrote an abbreviated version of your name on a piece of paper. I folded each paper in half, smeared them all with peanut butter, set them on the floor, and gave Banana Bella the thrill of her lifetime by allowing her to pick the winner.
This is the first paper she nabbed, and she almost swallowed it. I had to dig it out of her mouth. She did not want to let it go. Poor Banana Bella. I compensated her after with a bigger, better treat. No animals were harmed in the making of this win.
And the winner is...

Congratulations, Kayla, for finally defeating Larry in a contest. He put up a very strong showing, but unfortunately not strong enough for Banana Bella. You earned this win.
Thanks again to all of you. I hope we won't bring this particular Banana Bella contest back in the future. The next one will be under pleasant circumstances. Until then, keep it together.
