Desperately Seeking DBB (Divorced Beer Baron)

It's been a while since Unreal posted our Entirely 100% Unauthorized August Busch IV Dating Contest.

And, truth be told, we kind of forgot about the competition. That's because just one Daily RFT reader (Dena Vellone) initially responded to our quest to find a new life partner for the recently divorced -- and unemployed -- August Busch IV.

Now, five months later, and suddenly there's a renewed interest in the contest. Readers "Helen," "Fuzzy," "Rose Lynn" and "Lily" have all commented this month to either wish the beer scion luck or throw their names into the ring to become his soul mate.

That's fine. But as we originally posted, better would be to send us an email (200 words max) stating why you think you'd be a perfect fit for A4. A picture of yourself wouldn't hurt either. 

We'll then post your sentiments on this blog, and we'll do our best to pass them, as well as your photo, along to the eligible bachelor himself.

So drop us a line ladies (or gentlemen). After all, this Bud could be for you.
