It's Giveaway Time! 19 New pens!


One big grand prize.
I will also throw in two of the Frixions from earlier this week. (not pictured if you were counting pens) and the ink goes along as well!

Here are the silly rules, the contest ends 8:00 am Eastern on Friday. My legal team is dreaming up my own (funnier) version of the randomizer and I will announce the winner after the holiday. All you have to do is leave any comment on this post and as usual, there will be a special separate prize sent out to the person who comes closest to making me laugh so hard I fall out of my chair and break a hip.
We can catch up with email after the contest to sort out which you like. That's it. Have a great day. Oh, and International readers...feel free to join in the fun. -Seth

Another chance to feed the addiction? I'm in! I seem to have promised not to get more pens for a while, so...

Please don't break a hip, they take so long to heal. Break a sweat instead. Or something.

I just woke up, so the only funny thing about me is the smell of my breath. Sorry :p

Ok I'm not sure this is funny to you but I still laugh. My dear friend and her husband went window shopping with me in an expensive clothing store. My friend who is very quiet decided to do something out of character and try on a pair of leather pants. She took them in the dressing room and while she tried them on, her husband and I stood on either side of the door chatting. Suddenly there was a little commotion and she fell out the door onto the floor with the pants half on. Her husband and I looked at each other, scooped her up and threw her back in the dressing room and shut the door. It happened so fast that no one else in the store noticed. It turned out she didn't realize unlined leather pants could not really be pulled on and she was hopping up and down to get them up when she fell against the door and fell out. Hope you at least got a giggle.

I told a co-worker yesterday that he couldn't shave off his 25-year-old mustache due to gravity. After all those years of it weighing down his upper lip, shaving it would cause the lip to fly up like a released window blind.

What? It's true!!

Patman said...

Hmm, are you sure you shouldn't keep the pens in order to create a splint for the broken bones from the fall?

oooOOOoo new pens in pretty colors... /poke screen/

funny stuff eh?

At work, I enjoy dancing around like Elaine from Seinfeld. (for reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xi4O1yi6b0 ) So envision me dancing around, kicking wildly with thumbs going... and then my boss walks in. EVERY TIME! It's happened more than once but I do that - "I-was-just-stretching" smooth move thing and sit back down. Does he know the truth? The world may never know.

I like me some colorful pens. That Seth, he is quality people!

Sean M said...

What a splendid array of color!

Mer said...

It is a plan so cunning, you could attach a tail to it and call it a weasel. I salute you, sir!

Reginald Golding said...

I should win!
Because the last thing I need is another pen, but I do have a Flair for writing; I mean, I don't.. well I do.
Dang, that wasn't funny at all!
Enjoy your pens, other winner; I just blew my chance.
:)

What do you get when you cross a turtle and a porcupine? A slow-poke!

That was bad, but I haven't had any coffee yet today.

This just happened to me:
My sister, my aunt, and I were all playing Wii Fit on my aunt's wii. You should know that my aunt has two little dogs, Chiuaua mixes. Well my aunt was doing push-ups on the wii fit board, and when she went back to the "down" posistion where her stomach was on the floor, one of her little dogs leaped up and lied down on her back. She still had half the exercise to go, but she was laughing so hard that she couldn't find enough strength to push back up, so for the last part of the exercise, she was just laying there, laughing like an insane person.
My sister and I couldn't beat her high score no matter how hard we tried. :)

I love the smell of fresh pens in the morning :)

That's a whole lot of mightier than the swords....too bad you still need the sword to get the the dang things out of the package.

What do you call a children's writing utensil with animals on it?

Hope I win!!!

SavingDiva said...

Oh...pens! I can't really think of a funny pen story....except all of my professors use pocket protectors...but I guess none have ink stains in their pockets...so they must be working.

Lucia said...

I don't have a funny pen story. I'm so over that phase now.

LizB said...

I helped a friend find a sought after architecture image on google.

I told him "you must shower me with adulation now!"

I got "hey, yay you!"

I told him " I didn't know you suffered from Premature Adulation"

He choked on his coffee...

good luck to me!

H.C.M. said...

I can haz unnecessary amount of penz?

jen said...

to ensure the safety of your hip, your chair, and other objects or small children around you, i will refrain from writing anything remotely funny.

Dominique said...

Just want I need, a new pen!

jb said...

My state is erupting in flames and likely bankruptcy after yesterday's election, so I need these new pens to bring some joy back into my life!

teabird said...

This isn't fair. You're discriminating against the non-funny.

I would love to win these great pens. Can't think of anything particularly funny at the moment though...

would you like a PEN 15 tattoo?

Mary said...

Dear Pen God,

Please bestow your pen contest blessings on me. I promise to be good and to write with only the smoothest, brightest pens.

If you could answer me by setting a bush aflame or by writing on a Moleskine reporter's tablet, that would be great. I would happily proclaim your name across all the lands.

Your humble, pen-craving servant-
Mary

Hmm...funny? I am not funny. :( I suppose I shall have to repeat someone else's funny:

Hurrah!

ShadowVariable said...

I'll rather not make a fool out of myself trying to be funny. I just want me some pens~

Speedmaster said...

Thanks for the contest! A new pen or two would be great, my wife has advanced me my allowance for several weeks, can't ask again! ;-)

Kooky Chick said...

Oooh! So many pretty pens! Unfortunately, I'm not funny (except inadvertently ;-). Good luck to the funniest commenter! :-)

John said...

Hey like I need more pens? Oh go on of course I do!

Sam said...

I'm just wondering if you can get nictotine patches for felines because my cat keeps shredding empty cigarette packets. She looks at me like, "I could give up any time I like!"

Great giveaway BTW, count me in!

My husband and I bought our first house from a man named Ralph, and my parents helped us move in. We had already met the neighbors and their dog, so we introduced my dad, who loves dogs, to their dog, Rusty, who stayed in their back yard. Later, when our new neighbor Ginny came over to welcome us with a coffee cake, my dad said "Hi, you must be Ralph's mistress!" Needless to say, she was taken aback at this slur on her character, even though we hastened to apologize to Ginny by way of explaining to my dad that Ralph was the seller of the house and Rusty was the dog!

Nice contest! Funny is watching a squirrel and bird fighting over junk food in the apartment parking lot. Who knew french fries were the universal food?

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend awake. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?" Holmes questioned.

Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you idiot. Someone has stolen our tent."

This was voted the funniest joke ever one time and so it's one that I always tell...

Yesterday, at work (I was cashiering), a guy came up to my counter and purchased some rather cheap vodka (Silver Wolf). I ran his card through the machine and gave him his slip to sign. Sadly, we have a holder with some standard-issue BICs in it; I handed the gentleman a BIC. He proceeds to brush my hand (my hand, not the pen) away and pulls out a Parker 51 to sign his slip with. Yeah, I'm the jerk for insinuating that he has poor taste. Nice vodka selection, pal.

Rachel said...

Argh! Too much pressure to be funny. Although I did enjoy reading prior comments :)

pat said...

Hope. I. Win.

I hope it's not too late. Here is my funny:

Since food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants.

(Ha! That just does not get old for me.)
