Thanks to the thousands of you that voted in our novelty song contest this year.  The winner (for the 2nd straight year) is the song selected by Kim "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".  Despite a strong showing for the cow song "We Wish you a Dairy Christmas" - the hippo squeaked past with a scant 7% victory (1260 to 1094) ... Doug says "Just want till next year!"  In the meantime - if you are a hippo fan - here's an interesting web site we found - http://soe.hyperchat.com/newchat/u/yummy/~soe/hippoFAQ.htm

For those interested in the "It's a Cow Christmas" CD - you have to be lucky and try to find a used copy that might be sold on Amazon or Ebay.

DK" CD soon)


DOUG & KIM'S CHRISTMAS NOVELTY SONG FOR 2003

After a hard fought campaign, involving over 700 emails and countless phone calls, the Chipmunk Song was declared the winner of "Best Christmas Novelty Song for 2003."  The margin of victory - 38 votes.  Remember - every vote counts!  True to his word - the Chick Fil A Cow served breakfast to Kim.
