The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
In my continuing effort to avoid politics, this week’s Who Won the Week winner is Paul Bishop. Bishop, a 63-year-old British man, misplaced his teeth at a popular Spanish party resort in 2011 while on holiday. He fell ill while drinking cider and had to vomit into a bin.
Bishop said, “I had downed the rest of my cider and it decided to come back up. The bin was the closest thing to me. When we headed to the next bar, my friend then turned round to me and asked where my teeth were.”
Amazingly, eleven years later, Paul’s dentures were found in landfill. Spanish authorities used DNA records to eventually track him to his home in Greater Manchester. Bishop was left open-mouthed after Spanish authorities returned the false teeth he lost on that boozy night out more than a decade ago.
So congratulations Paul. Thanks to DNA testing, you’ve got your choppers back.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
And lest you think I’ve got totally apolitical, I leave you with this:
