We have a winner: The Tweet Your Own Horn Challenge

It turns out that Canadians really are humble—braggers, that is! There were so many great entries our readers and judges had a hard time choosing. 

This is what judge Terry Fallis had to say: 

"I loved the wit in this one. When I hit the word 'campers' I laughed out loud, and I have a rather high laughter threshold having grown up in a family of cutups. The 'stay warm' invocation brought the kindness, a distant cousin to humility. It's also one of the briefer Tweets, and as we all know, brevity is the soul of wit. While it was very difficult to choose just one from such a vast collection of awesome humblebrag Tweets, this was the one that caught me off guard and made me laugh."
