Contest! (Deadline Dec. 15)


Ho! Ho! Ho! What do you know?

The holidays are here and We Three Chicks are full of cheer . . . and hot chocolate . . . and cookies . . . and yummy holiday treats. (Except Eggnog, of course. That would be wrong.)

We wanted to share our cookies with our readers, but we had a tragic accident in which we ate them all. (The cookies. Not the readers. Readers aren't very tasty though they are crunchy.)

We wanted to share our brownies, but we baked them ourselves and that ended in a different kind of tragedy. [Note: The Three Silly Chicks Legal Department wishes to state that the Three Silly Chicks (of the first part) claim no responsibility for any accidental damages or injuries involving but not limited to a triple-chocolate chunk brownie batter, a Lady Norelco Shaver, and the couple who were standing on the corner of 9th & Washington at about 4:00 last Saturday. We're just saying.]

Luckily, we have one remaining treat. Peppermint Bark! And yes, we bought this! We tried making it ourselves, but couldn't find any peppermint trees to peel. We substituted the bark from a shrubby little oak plant. It was high in fiber and tasted great with calamine lotion. The swelling and itching are almost gone now, but we're saving the last of our home recipe for our annual New Year's party.


Alas, Dear Readers, we have only one container of Peppermint Bark and there are so many of you. How to decide? We shall hold a caption contest!!!!!

Give us a funny caption (to the picture above) before the deadline (December 15). We will judge all the entries and announce the winner on December 20!

You can enter more than once! Make sure you sign your entries (fake names are okay) so you can claim your prize on the 20th if you win!

Happy Holidays!

The Company Christmas party just hasn't been the same since they hired these new guys.

Is this six of one or half a dozen of the other? I need to lay off the eggnog.

Mama always said you should count your blessings before they hatch.

When you're practicing your "why did the farmer cross the road" jokes, it helps to have a captive audience.

Andrea Beaty said...

Okay. So this reindeer walks into a bar . . .


Andrea -- I know. I can't really be a contestant in this contest, but I just can't pass up a picture without adding some kind of thought bubble!!!!

Thanks everybody for adding so many great ideas! Can't wait to see all the entries!

The Abs o'matic I sent away for guaranteed I'd get a six pack in 10 days.

Gee, I hope it's a puppy! I always wanted a puppy!

Jim said...

If they don't hatch by Christmas, maybe I get their presents. Anybody have a fan I can borrow?

I thought of one more!


Fed up with long hours and a shrinking benefit package, the disgruntled elf's diabolical plan to take over Santa's workshop began with a small army of faceless Weebles.

okay. that's it for me, Carolyn!

You guys are cracking me up! How will we ever decide????

You better hatch before Christmas! Otherwise, the thick-shelled ones among you will end up in Iraq before New Year's!

1. No, once you come out the hat is optional. It's a seasonal thing for a gig I have playing Santa each Sunday down at the farmer's market. The glasses? Just fashion baby.

2. Yeah, I was going to be an omelet, but you know, stuff happens. Y'all coming out anytime soon?

3. This settles it once and for all, I came first.

4. Get ready, because once you hatch it's all about lowering your bad cholesterol.

5. I'm not sure we want to go out there, that chick keeps talking to us and I'm not sure she realizes that we are eggs and don't speak. Hey . . .wait a minute!

6. No one had the nerve to tell Cindy the eggs were empty after a bizarre Martha Stewart blow torch and eggshell experiment gone terribly wrong.

7. Cindy didn't mean to brood about it, but it was inevitable.

Hey chicks! I love your blog!

For your caption:

"Ah, the signs of Christmas: snow...reindeer...jingle bells...Santa's souffle..."

Nicole Foley said...

Good lord, I feel sorry for the chick who passed this mess.
