Blogger Proudly Announces Winners of Blog Contest

So originally I was going to have 1 winner for The That Blue Yak Google This Contest and 2nd and 3rd winners. Instead. Since the pictures I received were so great, I will be having 1 grand prize winner, which will be announced later today or tomorrow and 6 runner ups.

The contest rules were simple, to write "Google this: That Blue Yak" on something and send me the photo. I don't know about you guys, but when I tell people about my blog and I throw in the "blogspot.com", it just confuses people. So I just tell them to Google "that blue yak." It's much easier.

Enough of that. On to runner ups that will be receiving shitty prizes via mail. Please remember to email me your mailing address. Also, don't forget to click on each one to enlarge. And oh yeah. As I own the rights to these photos, I'm allowing all of my readers to do as they wish with them. I'm not kidding. If you want to print them out and tape them to your cars, safety pin them to your shirts, be my guest. It's my gift to you.

Here we go.

Katrocket with "Filmore's Hotel". Even though she told me it was real, I wasn't sure. I still love it. And note that it's a gentleman's club. Mmm hmmm. (Seriously Katrocket, is this a photo shop job?)

Meadowlark from Just Wandering Through - another new reader, she found my blog through Jennifer's blog. I love this one. Look at the skull and the proud gold man trophy, leaping..as if jumping toward a dream...both regally displayed atop a plain, brown cardboard box. I dub thee, "Dreams..Be it."

Fancy Schmancy - my good blog friend comes through with a creation I'm calling "Hungry Yak " AKA, "Sweet Yak..Let Me Come Hither Within Yawls Loins."


Ms. Florida Transplant from the blog Just a Girl...And Her Dogs - I like to call this simply, "The Beach." Rumor has is that the local authorities built huge sandbags around this masterpiece. Can you blame them?


My Blog Is About Nothing - This reader submitted "Kiss My Yak - the Gnome Files." This new reader really stepped up to the plate. Putting my older readers to shame. Making me realize that there are a lot of free loaders in this world.



Jennifer from Minnesota Vs Texas - a little number I like to call "Very Short Lady with a Tacky Hat Looking at Yak on Wall." Thanks Jennifer.

So there you go.

These are the runner up winners. As for the first place winner, I have to tell you that it is so great, so earth shattering and titillating that you will not believe it. I'm not making this up! I might as well make it my desk top picture because I've had to open the file and view it no less than 50 times.

Just wait. You'll see.

Clearly the mooning gnome was the best of the runner's up. Just Sayin'

Ms. Florida Transplant said...

I'm honored just to have my face on your blog. The shitty runner-up prize is just icing on the cake!

I did leave the writing on the beach. I figured you'd get huge blog traffic from all of the snowbirds that are just learning what "google" is.

I've always loved Nobody's Little Gnome

katrocket said...

For the last time, it's real, and it's spectacular.

Thanks Dr. Zibbs!

Dr Zibbs said...

Ms Florida and Katrocket - you are indeed welcome.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Thanks, buddy. How come when I clicky my candy picture, it goes to my blog instead of a bigger pic? Not that I mind, but the people should see the chocolate for all of it's goodness.

Dr Zibbs said...

Fancy - I'm not sure why it does that. It happens with the gnome too. Maybe one my computer geek readers can tell me what happened. Falwless?

MeadowLark said...

Wow... thanks!
Although as far as the Grand Prize winner - the phrase "titillating" makes me think someone used boobies... damn. I thought about boobies. Crap.

zibbs,

google this: "filmores hotel sign"

Whiskeymarie said...

I'm thinking it was Gwen that won. Am I right? I'm just thinking she did something really retarded and funny. Or Fawless.
The excitement is killing me...

I know it wasn't me because I am a rotten person and forgot to do this. As my punishment, I will tattoo "that Blue Yak" on my butthole. I'll let you know when it's done.

LYDIA said...

I like Meadowlark's - the horns make the pic for me.

Dr Zibbs said...

Ursogullible - thanks for the...Wait You. Are. So. Gullible? Oh Shit! I knew it was fake after examining the letters and wanted to see if Katrocket would come clean. I could tell by the O's and S's.

katrocket said...

haha - it's so disappointing when people say they're "fun" and they clearly aren't the least bit interested in fun. I had such high hopes for you, Zibbs.

Dr Zibbs said...

Katrocket - the only tricks I like are the one's that aren't played on me. I'm a baby like that. And what would have been fun? If I pretended to think it was real? OK. The only thing that's going to make this right is if you pay to really have the sign say That Blue Yak.

katrocket said...

Asking me to pay for a marquee sign is even more ridiculous than believing I had already done that for you the first place.

Well, I apologize for any hurt feelings, my friend, but your rules did not state "no Photoshopping", so please adjust your expectations accordingly. The innerwebs are full of cheats and liars like me. Let this be a lesson to you... and by the way, I shall happily forfeit my "prize" to a valid entry. I was only in it for the glory, baby. :)

LYDIA said...

Dear Zibbs,

I have challenged you to a duel on my blog. Please see for details.

Best wishes,
Lydia

Franki said...

I am trying to imagine what those poor little Chinese children must think as they are painting those little Kiss My Yak figurines.

MelO said...

Very creative entries!! I'm with Whiskey on this one... it's got to be Fal or Gwen... it's just got to be.

Great runner ups, though! I still think Katrocket takes the cake (so far?).

Jennifer and Sandi said...

I WON A SHITTY PRIZE, I WON A SHITTY PRIZE!!!! Thanks Z!!!

All of those are just SUPER photo's!!!

Happy Hump Day!!

- Jennifer

Slyde said...

Thats exactly why i kept the name slydesblog when i went over to blogspot..

its just easier for everyone to remember..

King of New York Hacks said...

funny pics, wish I sent in some of my own. I love shit prizes.

Dr Zibbs said...

Katrocket - there are no sore feelings. And you still get your prize. In fact, I may make it a bit less shitty just because you showed so much creativity. Just don't tell any of the other losers. I mean runner uppers.
King of New York Hacks - Welcome to my amazing, award winning blog.

Sass said...

Loved the pics.

Damn. I shoulda had the creative juices flowing.

Next year. ;)

Falwless said...

I love that someone thinks I entered this shitty contest. Whatever. I can barely be bothered to update my blog lately, let alone enter this sweepstakes or whatever the hell this scam is.

On the effing up Fancy's picture - go to edit this post, Zibbs. Take out her picture. Add it again. Re-publish. I know you're scared of editing posts after you have published them but I promise no harm will come to you. I could tell you how to muck with the HTML but that would literally blow your mind and you might start crying on me.

Dr Zibbs said...

Falwless - I will not be attempting that advanced move. Everytime I add a picture it goes to the top of the post and I have to drag it down and everything gets screwed up.

MelO said...

LOL... Zibbs, you crack me up. And unfortunately, I know this pain you speak of ;)

Giggle Pixie said...

This was funny! Everybody did great!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I'm glad to have found yours. I'll be back for more yak!! :-)

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Zibbs, that was awesome! I am anxiously awaiting the winner. I am definitely thinking it's Gwen. She of the #1 Badass blog, or maybe Poobomber?? They've both got to be up at the top.

Can you have another contest with shitty prizes for the one who guesses the genre of the winning photo?

Fancy Schmancy said...

Zibbs, I think Falw is on to something. You probably highlighted both the pic and name when you added the link, so they act as one. You can fix it, I believe in... wait a minute, did you just call me a loser?

Talullah said...

I would like to know where I can get a gnomes ass for myself. And Zibbs, yes I do live in FABULOUS NASHVILLE TENNESSEE (I typed that in my Don LaFontaine font) Tootsie's is a great place but I don't get down there too much. Last time I went, I fell.

MO said...

OMG, loved the "Kiss My Yak"....great!

pj said...

can't we get the lawn ornament to Filmore's Hotel and crown the winner.

Caffeine Court said...

Wow-you've got some creative readers!!! I'm too busy cleaning out closets. Damn my life is exciting.

enc said...

Congratulations to all those super-creative winners.
