Holiday Contest!!!


“Two cats blogging” here…

Da Gizz has escaped his chamber (ever see Thirteen Ghosts?) and has come up with a new contest… Here are the basics:

~1 Ya see that big bottle of corks below? Well, come by the store and take a good gander.

~2 Now go home or somewhere else to enter your guess of how many corks are in that sucker… It’s about 3/4 full though that number changes daily… Besides, your mileage may vary. Just comment on this post and you’re entered… (And no, “purple” is not a number… We’ll have no “Wolf Blitzer” answers on this blog!)

~3 Yeah… we’ll need some sort of contact info in case you win… Common sense.

~4 Either come by the store sometime on JANUARY 1st 2010 for the emptying of the corks and the official count or we’ll think of something.


~ THERE IS A PRIZE!!! We don’t know what it is yet because owner “Ghost Gizz” hasn’t mentioned that… Not to worry… there is a real prize. Stop by and berate Bruce as to the actual prize! Maybe there’s more than one. Bribe the cheap bustard… Who knows what you can win? Once again, we recommend poking Gizz with a stick.

~ In the count, half corks = full corks.

~ Also, come by and view the fantastic gift for the winner any old time as soon as we figure it out what it will be.

Shaking our furry little heads…

  4. […] thought… Has anyone figured out how Da Gizz is actually going to count the corks? After all, they’re stuffed chock-a-block into that carboy. Now, if the bottle is plastic, it can be cut open with a sawzall, skilsaw, a chain saw, etc. But […]

  5. […] “Cork Counting Contest” is still on. To see the bottle itself, just plop your eyeballs here. Gotta run, Kibble calls! Be sure to comment on this blog with your guess on the cork count, and […]
