The Very First Official, Awesome, Peztastic Contest!Wednesday, June 9th, 2010
I’ve gotten a lot of visitors here at ManWithPez, and, I’ve been happy to see most of them! No, I’m kidding. I’ve been happy to see all of them! To give a little something back, I’ve decided to host our very first contest here! If you want to know what’s going down, come back after the jump! Beware, however…I’m quite cheap and broke. The prizes won’t be much to look at, but you’ll have all the pride of knowing that you’ve added to my financial downfall!
So, let’s get to the rules. Look up. Do you see a picture of me dancing in the header of this website? If you look down to the right of me (though it’s not quite clear), there’s a television. With every new visit to this site (or refresh, or visit to a different page), a new picture comes up. It cycles through four different pictures at the moment. So, now we come to the meat of it. I want new pictures, and I want some audience participation around here. Here’s a quick listing of the rules. We’ll get to the prizes in just a second.
1. Send me four pictures to take the place of the four I have running on the television in my header right now.
2. These pictures do not have to be related in any way, nor do they have to fall in any certain category (I’d prefer you not send me porn, but I have to say that as my future in-laws visit this site from time to time.) Also…don’t just send me four pictures of yourself. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we don’t quite have the entire ear of the internet over here.
3. One person can only send ONE entry. That’s four pictures per entry, but one entry. Got it? Gooooood.
4. Entries that do NOT have four pictures will be ignored. Sorry about that, but we’re not mixing and matching here.
5. These can be your own pictures, or pictures you find around the internet, but we retain the right to alter them as we see fit.
6. Please send me the actual picture files! Not descriptions of the pictures or where I can find them. Entries that do so will be ignored.
There. There’s some nice easy rules for you to play under. The contest starts today, the 9th of June 2010, and will end on the 26th of June, 2010. The winner will be announced on June 30th, 2010, and the winning entry will be displayed beginning July 1st, 2010. We retain the right to remove the new pictures whenever we see fit, or whenever I lose interest, whichever happens first. What? It’s my website, damn it! Now, on to the fun stuff…some prizes! Some horrible, horrible prizes.
First prize: Obviously, your choice of pictures will be displayed on ManWithPez.com for the foreseeable future. Beyond that, you will recieve a certificate, a Pez dispenser of my choice, and…a shiny nickel! There! Don’t say I never gave you nothin’!
Second prize: While your pictures will not be displayed, you will recieve a certificate and a Pez dispenser. Again, of my choice. It’s not like I’m handing out the crystal ones over here.
Third prize: You, my third prize winning friend, will win a Pez dispenser of my choice. Congratulations. Your family will be very proud. (Also, it should go without saying, but your pictures will not be displayed. My legal team is telling me that I HAVE to say that! Damn legalese!)
OH! I guess I should tell you where to end your entries as well, huh? Very well. You may send your entries to Pezempire@yahoo.com . Please use the word “CONTEST” in your subject line, and I’ll be most appreciative that I don’t have to track your entries down! After the contest deadline, I’ll take a couple of days to judge the entries, and then I’ll get back to the winners so that we can find a way to send their winnings to them. Do NOT send that information in your entry. We’ll cover that later. After the contest, I’ll announce the winner, and ridicule the loser…sorry, non-winners. No, I’m kidding. I’ll just send you harassing emails until I’ve wrung all entertainment value out of you. Good luck to you, and hunt down the images you want to see on this site! (Except the image of me…I’m staying.)
