And the winner is…

Robbie S., with the below entry:

Five score before this day of yore, there lived a penguin named Richard Parker.
Aboard a ship his luck was bad and the main mast was totally had.
For five weeks he did flounder at sea, till Massachusetts he did see.
The cannibals, near tore him limb from limb, till to Rhode Island did he escape.
To the natives did he exclaim: “Save me from this horde, and bubbly
water will be your reward”.
And so Richard Parker lives to this day, carbonating the water of the bay.

I couldn’t decide between this entry and one other so I let myself think about it all day, and this entry ended up being the clear winner! I love the use of a real character and story, but really I thought Richard Parker was named as such because of the first letters of his name- R and P as in Rhode Island and Philadelphia, but I guess I was wrong!

Thank you all for entering- this was so much fun!

And special thanks to SodaStream USA for giving me the opportunity to run this giveaway! Off to ask Richard Parker to make us some water!
