Thanks to everyone who played, and congrats again to Eleanor -- in honor of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, we've decided to add to the grand prize of a firm handshake and a glass of lukewarm Phoenix municipal tap water.

In addition to the handshake and the glass of filthy water, we will provide Eleanor with a "meal of [her] choice" (we're going with the MCSO's definition of "meal of [her] choice" -- which really means any meal that can be purchased at a drive-thru)
