The 12 Pets Of Christmas

Last December I ran the 12 cards of Christmas, cards from mostly demented comedians that I'd received over the years. This year it's the 12 pets of Christmas but it's a contest for the readers and there's a prize. (Maybe two, if there's a tie). It doesn't have to be your own pets. It doesn't even have to be a real pet. It can be virtual, stuffed or dead; as long as it's dressed for Christmas and makes me laugh.

You can enter as many times as you want but submit them before the first of December. I have no idea when the 12 days of Christmas are and I'm too tired to look it up because I'd have to go all the way to my archives and man, we're talking Sherpa at that point. I will post them all after the first of December, either with your name or anonymously. I will also post reminders for this contest every few weeks. Or when I don't have anything significant to blog about. I can hear you from here saying, "Oh God, she thinks her blog is significant?" Shut up.

The prize is this lovely Where Hot Comes To Die baseball cap, made out of mink.

Seriously, if I had mink hats, why would I bother to blog? OR a set of six Where Hot Comes To Die cards with white envelopes and free valium inside.Most bloggers ask their readers to vote but I'm a comedian and if I don't know what's funny then who does? And that's what being a standup is all about, risking This Is The Funniest One every minute I'm on a stage. So I have the only vote. I'm sure I'll change my mind as the months go by. That's also what being a comedian is all about. And alcohol consumption, can't leave that out.

End of chat.

    Okay, what's with the duplicate comments! For the record, I posted one freaking time! Sorry, Suzy. I'm getting the feeling that Blogger hates me. (I hope this only posts once.)

  7. Anne, as I recall you have a dog? I expect to see your entry sparkle!

    Jane, ok, then forget that. I'm not waiting until then to post them. I can tell you're Catholic?

    Surcie, I can't get enough of some surcie so I'm leaving the dupes!

    Grundir, you come here with your idle threats and scary picture and dude, your entry better be funny. (Please don't kill me)

    MJ, that was funny. And can I make an appointment for myself?

    Suzy,
    Yes you can make an appointment for yourself, as long as you get over here to Hawaii to do so in time for the competition...
    Aloha,

  11. No, no - I can see you need a sales refresher. "The hats are made of (large font) MINK (small font) skin." You know, the minks that hit puberty early and then go prematurely bald need love (OK, slaughtering) too. And, really, it's just a coincidence that mink skin looks almost exactly like whatever it is they make gimme hats out of.
