“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…
