I used to give platelets every three weeks or so downtown at the American Red Cross until I got put on the deferred list for a BS reason. I claimed to do it to save the lives of two or three people, but I also did it for the smug self-satisfaction that comes from doing something that most people won't attempt.
Mainly, I did it for the Little Debbies.
But times change and I no longer give platelets and Little Debbie is looking for a new face to grace the side of her cartons of caloric delight. If you know a little girl age 4-8, or God forbid you are a little girl age 4-8 and people think you look like Little Debbie, you could win a $5,000 scholarship and become semi-famous as the new visage of Little Debbie as they celebrate their 50th anniversary.
You have until Jan. 20 to enter. If you win, you don't have to split the money with me. Just throw me a couple of them there Swiss Cake Rolls.
