Wherein a Contest Is Announced

Sorry y'all. I posted this for tomorrow instead of today.

Perhaps you've seen Fred and Bessie's mug? I loves it muchly. It's my favorite mug. See it? See? I wanted to photograph it straight out of the box, but the coffee called. Then I wanted to shoot it while it was full of coffee. You know what happened, right? I couldn't resist. I loves my coffee muchly. So here it is, empty and icky. But still pretty, with my Mommy's artwork gracing its side.



You know you want one. This blog isn't about sales or merchandise, but I am having fun with the bovine line, though I'm not the best, yet, at designing for "stuff". But head over and look at the products? (I removed most of them, in preparation for this contest) The mug is probably my favorite item there. I'm recruiting my Hunny, who was a graphic designer in his past life, to design the products once I have photos and sayings. He's good at that. Ayup.

Snooty is hosting the bovines at the moment, though she let them get rip roaring drunk, leading to their arrest. I guess that's how little cows learn, huh? They look adorable in their tiny sombreros and blankets, though! Maybe Snooty will sneak back to that oil museum and kidnap the tiny mastodon, too. :)

So. Speaking of cows and merchandise and designs. I am holding a contest to caption the following photo. The winner will get a shirt or mug with the winning caption and the photo, in their size and color. The judging? I like the way the Burgh Mom does it. My Hunny will pick the top five, then you all can vote on the winner!


So whadda ya think? Ready? Here's the shot:



This one's tough. Leave your captions in the comments. I'll leave this up for a couple of days and close the captioning on Wednesday at midnight CST. Voting will begin on Friday. Have fun!

Until I write again ...

Ha! I can't wait. I will opt out since I have already been gifted with my very own mug. I can't wait to see the entries!

Who's the Dummy


How do I get your cows to my house so they can hang out with me in Ca?

"Who are you calling a sucker, Dum Dum?"

Lori said...

OK, Looking at the other merchandise makes me think you would like a title to be in the form of the whatever-you-call-it-speak-stuff. It goes against the grain of my DNA, but for that mug, I will do almost anything!
How about this:

sweetz formica-utie pie

I misspelled a word on purpose AND worked "formica" in there!

Sccccrrrrew the mug (though it's very cute!). I wants the bovines to visit me after New York. Snooty left out hunting, fishing, oilpatching, and four-wheeling. They're not finished with their West Texas edycashun yeyut. I could tell with my mental cowtelepathy that was their desire, but they just couldn't get a word in edgewise with Snooty and I at the same table.

Rerun to Midland!

Julie said...

How bout?
"Kiss me you Dum Dum"

Jan Parrish said...

"Bessy, I aint no Dummy. I know you like sweets!"
"Thanks, Fred, but who is going to take off the wrapper?"

I've got nothing. Really. I just sat here in silence and the brain cells won't kick in. Do you suppose I have a mental block from missing them so much? AND THE MUG... is fabulous. Perfect in it's big comfy size-- when I get over myself, I'm going to post about it. Thanks Flea.

Having no thumbs is bad enough, but being without a tongue "sucks".

faroutmom said...

I luv you oh mysterious Dum Dum.

Coffee Bean said...

Sorry...

"Hey Dumb Ass, that is not a salt lick!"

Sorry. I said I was sorry, okay?

Kidzmama said...

Oooo, a mug!


"Lolly Love" or "Lolly Luv"
"Utterly Delicious"
"I'm A Sucker For You" (no that's not gross!)

Colleen said...

"Give it to Bessie, she hates everything."

Tammy said...

Look honey, lactose free suckers!

Chelf said...

DH has this: "Good cheese comes from happy cows. Dum Dums come from stupid cows."

Have to be careful that you don't violate any copyrights. (I'll let HIM explain it to you, I don't get it.)

Chelf has this: The competition tries to spike the buttermilk.

Daryl said...

Come on, you'll like NYC ... pretty please with a sucker top!

I dont need the mug, not that I expect to win, but I just bought one for myself!

:-Daryl

Sarah said...

This is the best I could come up with...

"Only a sucker would try and come between us."

"Happy Lolly Days!"

"Don't worry Bessie, I'll solve the mystery flavor...yum, tastes like paper!"

Coffee Bean said...

Hmmmm... You might not like my entry because I said a bad word. I won't tell you the words I think and don't say. I'm a good Christian. I just snorted at myself. Okay... let me think of some more...

All Hail the Dum Dum

Can you clean my ears with this?

What's the difference between a sucker and a lollipop? A Dum Dum.

Bessie always says Dum Dum is as Dum Dum does. (Gotta think of Forrest Gump saying, "Mama always said stupid is as stupid does.")

Okay, I wanna change my first entry. Dumb ass is rude. I must have been grumpy that day. It should be...

Hey Dum Dum, That's not a salt lick!

Bessie and Fred under the Dum Dum Moon.

Was the store out of Smarties?

You want to do what with that?

Okay. That's all I've got. Sorry. Is there a rule about how many times you could enter? Cause I read that post a couple days ago and I don't remember and I'm too lazy to go look.

RUN FRED RUN!

Coffee Bean said...

Oh... I want an honorable mention for entering so many times. If I didn't make you laugh... feel free to lie to me.
