The "I Can't Believe I Forgot To Do This Giveaway" Giveaway

So, there's this FedEx box that I find in my office that's been sitting there for a few weeks. I don't know why I haven't opened it until now, but maybe it's because nobody told me it was urgent...

Letter from some marketing firm about some giveaway that I "allegedly" agreed to participate in for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Lot of happy-crappy mumbo-jumbo. I haven't got time to be reading letters...

"We hope you will join us for a great evening of eating, Tweeting and sharing grilling tips. The Taste & Tweet will take place on Monday, July 26th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm CST. Your first tweet including our hashtag for the event, #ICBINotButterBBQ, will automatically be entered in our sweepstakes to win... blah blah blah." Better go ahead and blog this out; the deadline's coming fast...


I thought TCBY just made frozen yogurt... hmmmm, well you learn something new every day.

Grilling tips? Don't these dummies know summer's about over?


Let's check out the goodie box... hmmmm, a corn-shaped ash tray. Might have to reconsider my decision not to smoke now that I own this bad boy...


And what have we here...?

Okay, I'm pretty sure I don't own one of these already...

How do you turn this thing on?

Whoa! This could poke someone's eyes out if you poked them in the eye with it!


This is the nicest one of these things I've ever received...

What? I can't hear you...

Definitely handy in MY office.

Oh yeah... that's the spot!

I've got absolutely no use for this because I shoplift all my groceries, so I'm going to forward it to one lucky reader in my I Can't Believe It's Not Butter "I Can't Believe I Forgot To Do This Giveaway" Giveaway. I'm a little busy today, so please make up your own rules, and then be sure to follow them! All entries must be postmarked by midnight tonight.

The I Can't Believe It's Not Butter people did want me to follow strict FDC guidelines by clearly stating blah blah blah blah yada yada blah blah blah. Damn lawyers!

  2. Oh man, that is too funny! I love how you put your own spin on your giveaways... I love the picture of you with corn grabbers! you COULD poke someone's eyes out! I wonder if they are allowed to be carried on a flight or would the TSA officials not allow them!

    Anywho, I'd love to be entered into the giveaway! I can always use an AmEx gift card for food!

  3. Hilarious! I could use those eye pokers. My youngest is in corn on the cob mode. The last pair of pokers I had were recently been destroyed by the garbage disposal.

  4. Oh my, that was funny! I needed that on a crabby morning! I tend to leave things mail and stuff sitting on my desk for WAY longer than intended!! It completely bugs the family if I leave a package unopened. They are DYING to find out what it is but I could care less. It's fun to torture them. I'm a great mom!

    but there are somethings it's just nice to win: prizes (as long as they aren't a 5 lb bag of sugar). awards (OK, so I'm not terribly fond of my last place bowling trophy) ... but MONEY and GIFT CARDS!?!... well, they're always nice.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  54. I had my physical today, and since it was my first since turning 40, I got the one-finger lubricated salute.

    I will note that the good doctor did NOT use "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!" on the proverbial gloved finger - it might have brought some much-needed levity to the blessed event.

    Is that good for an entry into this here sweepstakes?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Made me laugh. I like this blog, keep it up!

  60. I love a good pair of tongs in the kitchen! Handy for picking stuff up off the floor that I drop, as well as turning stuff over when cooking; just gotta remember to clean between picking up and cooking!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh! OH!!! PICK ME!!! PICK MEEEEEEE!!!! PLEASE???? I could really use it. My DD is DRIVING me insane today and all I want to do is eat due to stress. I could use a little sunshine on this otherwise cloudy, stressed-out, let me eat everything in the house, kinda day.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Now that I'm losing so much weight, I need that back-scratcher because I'm so itchy. And the eye-pokers and the ashtray would come in handy for that yellow stuff growing in big blades of grass in our backyard.

    So...

  68. Just wondering ... Was there ACTUAL I Can't Believe It's Not Butter in that box? Did it spoil while wating to be opened? I'd be gald to take the spoiled ICBINB off your hands along this the other "tainted" things.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love making my own rules which, in this case, is to leave a comment...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Well, I don't use fake butter, I don't eat corn, I haven't BBQ'd in like forever, but hell - I sure could use $25 smackers! Count me in!

    Love your blog BTW! (Shameless compliment can't hurt, right?) :D

    ReplyDelete
  74. ME ME ME!!!! Enter me!!

    You crack me up! Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Ever heard of someone walking around with a corn-cob up their a**? Well, what you've got there is a do-it-yourself, corn-cob insertion kit. The cob preparation tray (to hold the corn while "assuming the position"), cob positioners (with pointy ends for a sure grip), a cob extractor (for safe retrieval of said cob), and a $25 gift card to replenish the corn cob inventory. Since I have recently been accused of "getting on my high horse" (and I already have a kit for that), I could really use a corn-cob insertion kit to shake things up a bit. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  76. uh, I'll take that off your hands for you.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I can't believe I'm comment #82, I was born in '82!! No young people comments, I'm relishing my last two years in the 20's :)
