Contest Winner: Call me Guida! James Guida!

Jim Guida is the winner of last week’s contest to come up with funny dialogue for today’s comic. If you’re familiar with the James Bond series (particularly Goldfinger) you’ll probably see why I liked this joke so much. The thing that gave Jim the winning edge was that he even managed to incorporate Oddjob’s flying hat into the gag. Well done, Jimbo!

I’m also announcing a tie for runner up. Amazingly, both gags were almost identical and were submitted only minutes apart. Yes, sometimes great minds (or at least great jokesters) do think alike:

“Daddy! You’re HOME!”   — submitted by cozy romance author Gayle Trent

&

“HONEY…I’M HOME.”   —submitted by “Butch”

For everyone who submitted dialogue, thank you. I loved a lot of your gags and you’ll have more opportunities to win. I’ll definitely be having more contests!   —John Lustig

Sometime this season, one or more Last Kiss fridge magnets will appear on the CBS show 2 BROKE GIRLS. Be the first person to spot them and you’ll win a bunch of prizes. (See below.) The show airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on the West Coast.

To help you spot the magnets, I’ve posted a screen shot of the show’s refrigerator BEFORE the Last Kiss magnets were added.

To win, be the first person to e-mail me that you’ve seen the Last Kiss magnets on the show. If you’re right, you win.* If you’re wrong, I’ll write back and let you know. (You must have a U.S. or Canadian mailing address  to receive the prizes.)

The winner will receive:

—copies of the Last Kiss fridge magnets that are on the show.

—a Last Kiss sticky notebook.

—20 Last Kiss note cards.

—a Last Kiss tote bag.

—eternal fame and glory.

The contest will keep going until there’s a winner.

*The contest winner must not be an employee or associated with 2 BROKE GIRLS.)

By the way, this Last Kiss product placement is happening through the efforts of the amazing John Fluke of Placed4Success. Thanks to John, Last Kiss products will also be featured (more prominently) on new episodes of the CBS show MIKE & MOLLY. (I’ll announce a separate contest for MIKE & MOLLY shortly before the first new episode.)

Last Kiss-2 Broke Girls Contest Continues

2 Broke Girls

So far, there’s still no winner in the contest to spot Last Kiss products on the CBS show 2 BROKE GIRLS.

But I’ve now got more detailed info and hints that may help you win.

—To the best of my knowledge, one or more Last Kiss magnets will be visible on a refrigerator.

—Although they may show up on any episode, it looks like the first episode with the magnets probably won’t air until mid-to-late November.

—There are other—non-Last Kiss—magnets already on the fridge. So, spotting any old fridge magnet doesn’t count. It has to be a Last Kiss magnet.

—To win, be the first person to e-mail me with a brief description of what you think the magnet looks like. If you’re right, you win.* If you’re wrong, I’ll write back and let you know.

The winner will receive:

—copies of the Last Kiss products that are on the show.

—a Last Kiss sticky notebook.

—20 Last Kiss note cards.

—a Last Kiss tote bag.

—eternal fame and glory.

The contest will keep going until there’s a winner.

Invitation to Last Kiss Contest for 2 BROKE GIRLS

2 Broke Girls

No, Last Kiss is not taking over the universe. But it is conquering Hollywood—if you look closely and don’t blink.

Thanks to the amazing John Fluke of Placed4Success, Last Kiss products will have re-occurring appearances on at least two major TV sitcoms this season:

2 BROKE GIRLS

MIKE & MOLLY

First up—probably by late November but possibly sooner—one or more Last Kiss products will begin appearing as set dressing on 2 BROKE GIRLS.

To celebrate, we’re hosting a contest for Last Kiss fans. To win:

—watch 2 BROKE GIRLS.*

—spot a Last Kiss product.

—be the first person to e-mail me with the type of Last Kiss product (coaster, metal sign, etc) and where you saw the product on the set of the TV show. (For instance, was it sitting on a table, hanging on a wall, etc.)

—have a mailing address (where I can send your prize) in the U.S. or Canada.

I don’t know when the Last Kiss product(s) will pop up, but I can tell you they’ll be quite small. So look for any colorful, comic-themed products in the background.

Prizes

The winner will receive:

—copies of the Last Kiss products that are on the show.

—a Last Kiss sticky notebook.

—20 Last Kiss note cards.

—a Last Kiss tote bag.

—eternal fame and glory.

 

 

If there isn’t a winner this week, the contest will keep going and you’ll get a chance the following week.

As for MIKE & MOLLY, that show will be premiering later this year. I’ll announce a contest for that show shortly before the first new episode.

*The contest winner must not be an employee or associated with 2 BROKE GIRLS.
