Can you believe this is the 50th Comeback Challenge? I wrote the first Saturday Comeback Challenge November 2, 2006. To celebrate our anniversay I've posted all the winners below and tallied the number of wins for each contestant. You will also find my favorite answer from each competition sent in by that winner.
