The Earring Contest Winner Is…


Wait! First, you need to look at my highly-scientific chart!


Yeah, I created a pie chart while watching American Idol last night. What of it?

(Did I hear you mumble “douchebag”? HUH?)

According to Wikipedia, “Genetically dominant, free earlobes are twice as common in the human population as attached lobes.”

No shit! Thanks to MY highly-scientific poll, I can assure clinical geneticists around the world that the research hasn’t been in vain! Free earlobes are twice as common! Whoorl readers PROVED IT.

I’m not just giving away earrings here, I’m validating SCIENCE.

What was I talking about?

Oh yes, the contest. I found some sort of random number generator website thingymajig, entered in the official number of comments, pressed the go button and:


I can’t look! The suspense!

And the winning random commenter is:


#186! Which would be:


Jocilyn! Who measures people’s ears! (ZOMGWTF.) You’re right, Jocilyn. There is no good explanation.

Congratulations to the Ear Measurer! I’ll be emailing you shortly.



  1. Come clean, whoorl: did you match your tshirt to the screen on purpose?

  2. That photo of you is adorable.

    The pie chart is hilarious.

    You never fail to crack me up!

  3. Congratulations to Jocilyn!

    You look so cute in that picture, Whoorl!

  4. Dammit!

    I mean, congratulations!!!


  5. Even though I didn’t win, I still love this post. There not much in the world better than a pie chart! (Except maybe a Ven Diagram.)

  6. Oh well. Congrats to the winner.

  7. welp. darn. but i loved kate’s esty shop so much, i ordered a necklace from there last night. :)

    i think you should definitely fill us in of the other etsy shops we should visit (besides the ones you feature on parentdish. ;)

    i got my tax refund so i’m allowed to splurge!

  8. Hahaha the pie chart is absolutely hilarious.

    Sorry to comment and thus require a “genetic anomaly” section of said pie chart. :)

  10. It seems fitting the ear measurer would win the earrings. Go Jocilyn!

    And since when did “freak” sound like “douchebag”? Cuz that’s what I muttered. ;)

  11. Congratumalations Jocilyn!
    I realize that I forgot to state my earlobe details yesterday. For the record one of my earlobes is “strange” (have you ever had a nightmare where your earring gets torn out through your earlobe? yeah. Happened to me when I was a kid) and the other is “free”.

    Maybe it’s best that I left that out yesterday – it doesn’t seem to fit into your chart ;)

  12. Oh my God. I thought you were kidding when you said this…You were not.

  13. I’m a fellow etsy addict too! If you like etsy then you should check out these darling appliqued kid’s shirts!
    *shameless plug for myself*

    Rats. Congrats, though to Jocilyn!

  15. Either your glasses are adorably large or your face is adorably tiny.

    Which is it?

    Both! I like BOLD frames.

  16. I loved the earrings so much that I ordered my own pair. Question, though, what size hoops did you get?? I was an Etsy virgin until your post- thanks so much for showing me somewhere else to spend my money. I’m sure my husband appreciates it! :)

  17. Oh my goodness, you are hilarious. I love your hair (thus you are the hair goddess of Thursdays) and the glasses! And even though I wasn’t the winner it was fun playing :)

  18. You so funny.

  19. I generally find “yeah, me too” comments irritating, but I just can’t stop myself. God, your hair is great.
