Badcock Crowns First "Know A Joe" Winner

It Pays to Be Clumsy

MULBERRY, FL--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Who knew that the family dog "weathering" your coffee table could help you win a $2,000 shopping spree? Funny as it sounds, that's exactly what happened to Jamie Burnett of Wallace, North Carolina -- Badcock Home Furniture & more's first "Know A Joe" contest winner.

The contest is part of Badcock's new advertising campaign based around a loveable family guy, Joe, who has good intentions but bad luck. This translates into many humorous -- yet plausible -- furniture mishaps around the house. And the opportunity for Badcock customers and fans to submit their own furniture mishap stories for the chance to win new furniture from Badcock. Stories can be submitted and shared at and fans can connect to Joe through his Facebook page.

Jamie's winning entry focused on the "Joe" in her life -- Buddy, the family dog. It seems that Man's Best Friend became their new coffee table's worst enemy as Buddy scratched it up in a fit of excitement. In Jamie's words, "He weathered it for us."

As the current "Know A Joe" contest winner, Jamie's entry was selected at random to receive a $2,000 shopping spree at Badcock. Her story could even be featured in a future commercial.
