A Blog Contest!

Like many families with kids these days, we have been over-run with Webkinz. I "drew the line" [insert mocking and disbelieving laughter here] after Gus received one as a present, but now somehow he has seven. I think we are still in the average zone, but they seem to be accumulating at a mad rate. I can't get too upset though, since they're cuddly and he takes good care of them and it's better than playing with explosives.

Anyway, Gus wanted to get involved with the blog and proposed that we have a weekly contest to see which Webkinz people think is cuter. I talked to him about judging people on their appearance and how maybe one Webkin would have its feelings hurt if they lost and of course it's like talking to a wall. He listened patiently to my boring maternal lecture and then said, "So when can we start the contest?" So today we have the First Weekly Webkinz Cuteosity Contest. Please indulge a weary parent and leave a vote in the comments!!!

Which do you think is cuter?

Cimi the Lion


Pudge the Pug

Please vote - Gus has asked me about 165,473 times since yesterday if the votes have been tallied yet. And you don't want to disappoint the cutest 7-yr-old on the planet, do you????

My first instinct was Pudge, but then I decided that I loved Cimi's kerrrasy mane!! So my vote is for CIMI!

I can't resist the big brown the "pudgy" pug gets my vote. (After a summer of eating, I feel connected to him on the pudgy part).

A little side note to my favorite boy in Pennsylvania - I HAVE YOUR SOCKS AT MY HOUSE! Unfortunately, they went through the wash and now they are in the BIG BLACK HOLE OF LAUNDRY TO BE FOLDED. I promise that when the mate is located I will mail them off to you.

I'm going to tell the angels about your contest. They may want to vote also - everybody loves a good contest.

Pudge! I gotta admit, I'd never heard of Webkinz before this post. AND, what about the other five? Are they less cute? More cute?

okay, SOMEONE seems to have hijacked the comments for his own agenda. I did NOT leave that last comment. Pudge was my vote.

Like all elections, this one's veering into questionable territory...

CIMI! Definitely. Sory, little Pudge, but you can't compete with that hair! Rawr.

Do I get a write-in vote? Because I'm kind of partial to this guy.

ks - yikes! what IS that? i must admit he (or she) has a certain charming je-ne-sais-quoi quality (though perhaps not so cuddly as Cimi or Pudge) and we are a democracy here at TMM, so you may write in if you so choose.

I would like to CHANGE my vote!
If write in votes are allowed, then I will have to go with the translucent ET thing that KC nominated. Please revise the tally. Oh, I almost forgot, I accidentally voted twice, it really was an accident, sorry!

It's an axolotl. Sort of a mole/salamander thing that lives in Mexico, sometimes kept as a pet. You've never heard of it? I have six in my shirt pocket as I type this. Okay, no I don't.

More weird animals can be found here.
