PRIZE DRAWING: Because It’s The Season of Giving

Agoraphobics call it, “The Season of Avoiding Shopping Malls and the Post Office.”

Retail workers who don’t work on commission call it, “The Worst Time to Work in Retail.”

But for many, they call this time of year, “The Season of Giving.”

Right now, I’m in the mood to give and if I could give you all a gift, I would. But with several thousand regular readers, it would be extremely pricey to do so. If I had a stolen credit card with a large credit limit, I might be able to pull it off, but I don’t and I’m afraid of going to prison for identity theft and becoming a white-collar bitch.

Instead, I’m going to have a prize drawing. I have three prizes to give away — one I reviewed recently, another I reviewed a long time ago and another I didn’t review at all, but you might be able to get some DNA off of it and clone me. Here are the three prizes:

1. Twin Lotus Herbal Toothpaste – The poop-looking toothpaste I reviewed last year. I recently received a new tube.

2. Terracycle M&M’s Candy Wrapper Speakers – Portable speakers made out of candy wrappers and other recycled materials.

3. Bunny Ears Cap from San’s Little Frog – The same bunny ears cap I wore in Episode #8 of The Impulsive Buy Podcast. It’s a handmade fleece hat that I wore for less than an hour while shooting the episode. It’s a large size, made for heads that are 25 inches or larger around).

To enter this prize drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. Your comment MUST include the prize you’d like to win and whatever else you’d like to say.

  1. I’d like to win the speakers. The toothpaste is scary, and my head is too small for the bunny ears.

    Er, that should be, my head is too BIG for the bunny ears. I usually need XL hats. I also need coffee right now.

  2. yeah, I’m in for the ears as well (hope they fit my freakishly large noggin)… though I won’t mind getting some poop to brush my teeth, either :3

  3. I would like the bunny ears cap, because I’d like to clone a little army of Marvos to test products for me.

    That’s not weird or creepy at all, right?

  4. I love those speakers, but it’d be pretty awesome to win anything.

    And I think I check this blog out too much when I hear my management at work discussing new microwaved food options for us to sell and wonder how a review of it might go. Usually, badly.

  5. Terracycle M&M’s Candy Wrapper Speakers please, i’m in England and theres no way i can get hold of such a collectable item to put on ebay…opps to far

  6. Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!!!! I want those Terracycle M&M’s Candy Wrapper Speakers!!!! Tell Santa I want them mommy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I would love the bunny ears. Not only because I have a huge head, but because it would make me look awesome!

  8. Uwaaa, I want the bunny ears hat! Whenever I think of you, I think of you in that hat from the video. It’s an image that’s impossible to remove!

  9. Ah geez, you want us to say something in addition to what we want to win? I’m no good at these.

    The Bunny Ears Cap purple monkey dishwasher.

  10. Twin Lotus Herbal Toothpaste….it looks awesomely disgusting. I’m all about anything poo colored

  11. I would love to win the speakers!

    I love your blog and check it all the time for updates! Keep up the awesome work.

  12. The candy wrapper speakers, if you please. Thanks so much for continuing this blog. I do appreciate it, man.

  13. ohhhhh candy speakers cause i’m to poor to buy any for my laptop that has lame crap speakers!!!! goooo marvo!!!!

  14. I would love the hat, but the speakers would be awesome too. Shit, I’d be glad to win anything, considering I am broke as a joke this holiday season.

  15. Without a doubt, the toothpaste. and i think it looks awesome. how can these people say that want something that looks gross!??! please note, i will definitely enjoy it and use it to the very last drop. I’m a big fan of anything…different…and healthy for me! and this fine toothpaste you are offering fits those specifications to a T! thanks for considering me. 🙂

  16. i’d love it if i had won the speakers!
    Wooo! Music! MOAR BURGER REVIEWS! (Heh, just kidding!)

  17. Every girl or (ahem) woman needs a good pair of animal ears…not that every gal needs to join the “furry” community..I’m just sayin. Other than that, I think the toothpaste is kinda awesome too…I know just who to give it to 🙂 P.S. Thank you for the blog…youve kept me from many a bad impulse buy and pushed me to some great finds.

  18. Marvo,
    I’d love to win the speakers. It would be nice to get something from terracycle other than the worm poop fertilizer that I use to make my garden more organic……plus my daughter would think it’s the bee’s knees.

  19. the bunny ears please – they fit me perfectly since I’m an easter bunny baby (was born on easter sunday in 1978)… happy t weekend…

  20. I would like to win the Terracycle M&M’s Candy Wrapper Speakers so I can blast your podcasts out loud so that everyone in my apartment complex will love me more than they already do.

  21. I CAN CLONE MARVO??? You mean, my lifelong dream of having adorable Asian babies isn’t ruined just because I’m whiter than the creme in an Oreo and married to a fellow pasty wonder?

    If I win and the hat is already taken, can I just get a DNA sample? Probably not. I’d be happy to win anything, really. But I want that hat!

  22. I’d like the Terracycle speakers – just because I can piss off my roommates (I’m a poor college student) with my bad music. Maybe I’d play Katy Perry…

    Can’t wait for more reviews, Marvo!

  23. Terracycle M&M’s Candy Wrapper Speakers

    Not only is it friendly to the environment, but I really need a new pair of speakers for my mp3 player. I really don’t like sleeping with my bulky headphones because it’s very uncomfortable. Earbuds work, but they produce a very loud sound and my ears don’t like it at all. I always have a positive experience when I plug my mp3 player with speakers.

  24. I would like the toothpaste, because my new Alaskan malamute and I would like to practice good oral hygiene.

    I realized belatedly that if you read it the right way, and maybe if you were half asleep, that might sound a little threatening. I assure you I mean no harm. I sound crazier with every key stroke.

    But seriously, I’d rather have the bunny ears.

  25. Toothpaste! Having that amazing, allegedly disgusting and slightly racist toothpaste would make my life.

  26. I need the poop paste!! I’m a mom of three boys, I’ve been looking for this since I saw the review, the little piles of poop are perfect for messing with my kids!! I’d be the coolest mom EVER!!

  27. I really just wanted to tell you to try the credit card thing because maybe you won’t be a white collar bitch – the trick is to sucker punch the biggest guy in the joint on your first day and then get your own bitch. I hear that works.

    That being said, I’m not down with brushing my teeth with a poop like substance, but the speakers or the hat could be cool.

  28. Ooh I would like the candy speakers.

    Unfortunately I didn’t get my milkshake.. totally forgot about it. But don’t worry I dumped 200$ into our economy on Friday. The funny thing was most of the cars in the mall parking lot were canadian! lol

  29. I’d like those speakers. I don’t know exactly what I’d do with them, but it will probably involve lewd things and the absence of clothing on my part.

  30. I would love the bunny ears for my daughter. She has kitty ears, but would look great with the bunny ears. We both love your blog because it makes us laugh all the time. Thank you for the great reviews!

  31. BUNNY EARS for me please – I would love to hear the flapping sound as I ride my bike through the winter..

  32. I want the toothpaste because they commercial for that stuff was one of the weirdest and funniest things I’ve ever seen 🙂

  33. I would like the Twin Lotus Herbal Toothpaste! Why? Well, you’ve all seen the advertisement.
    If I win, it’ll be a gift to you for all my friends and family! =D

    Merry giving!

  34. The M&M speakers look cool, so i dig those. It’s nice that you’re giving away prizes, The Impulsive Buy is awesome.

  35. I wanna bunny ears hat toooo! I’ll even take a picture of them on my head and send it to you…

  36. I would very much like to have the bunny hat. As strange a hobby as it may be, I collect cute hats and I actually do not have any bunny hats.

  37. Omg, number 3, cute hat please!
    I would just like to say Merry Christmas and thanks for a lovely year of reviews. 🙂

  38. YES, that hat would look oh-so-sexy on any head – (freakishly) large or not. I’m keeping my fingers crossed… it’s getting cold over here in the northeast.

    I hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving – one WITHOUT Tofurky soda.
    – S

  39. I would really love that hat because my husband would look so cute in it!

    or the herbal toothpaste because I can’t wait to video my husband trying this for the first time thanks to you. 🙂

  40. The speakers!! I got a very special someone in my life who LOVES peanut M&Ms.. I just gotta make sure they don’t replace ME in the pecking order 😉

  41. bunny ears’ my wish for the season. but everything will do.

    and if you have some kind of chocolate, i’d like to take it as well.
