    4th Prize: iFish

    8th Prize: Obsessive Compulsive Action Figure
    Be sure to wash hands before using....and after

    Action Figure is worried about whether or not you washed your hands after you used the bathroom. Just in case, he’s sure you won’t mind if he wears his gloves and surgical mask when he shakes your hand. Or even better, maybe you could just bump elbows with him. Now, as soon as he finishes counting those ceiling tiles, he can get started on alphabetizing the canned foods. Mini surgical mask included. Packaged with a sanitary, hypo-allergenic towelette to clean off the figure before you touch it.


    9th Prize: USB Christmas Decoration Kit
    Spending Christmas in Front of the computer can now be fun

    The Yuletide season is about to come knocking on our doors soon, and it is never too early to start planning out your gifts. Brando has the USB Decoration Christmas Kit to help brighten up your work area at the office. This decorative kit comes with a string of colorful LED lights, the compulsory Christmas hat, and a mouse pad to get the holiday mood going. Who knows, if the lighting is bright enough, it might entice some of Santa's little helpers to drop by and help you finish up your truckload of work at the office while you sit by a warm fire, toasting marshmellows and sipping on some hot chocolate.

    10th Prize: Sonic Grenade
    Get Ready for a Sonic Explosion

    It is early afternoon. The air conditioning blows a bittersweet breeze across the office. A silence blankets the building. Everyone has just returned or finished their lunches. They are full; they are tired. Your nemesis is even quiet for a change. It is the perfect time for revenge! You sneak up, remove a Sonic Grenade from your belt, pull the pin, and throw it into his cubicle. Twenty seconds later, his screams echo in every corner of the office, as do the unstoppable sounds of your Sonic Grenade.

    The Sonic Grenade is a masterpiece of office mayhem. It is hard rubber and plastic, making it pretty easy and safe to toss. Set the grenade to one of three volume settings, pull the pin, and throw. The blinking red light will let you know the grenade is armed. Once the alarm goes off, your prey will only be able to adjust the settings (and trust us, low is even really annoying), he or she or they will not be able to permanently turn the unit off. The only way to permanently stop the alarm is to reinsert the pin, which you are now twirling around your finger. Remember, revenge is a dish best served LOUD!

    11th Prize: RIAA Toilet Paper
    The best use for Toilet Paper to Date

    Now you have something to do before you LMAO! Nothing compares with the way it feels when that text slides across your butt. This is one of the best prizes to date IMHO.


    12th Prize: Librarian Action Figure (Autographed by Nancy Pearl)
    With Amazing Push-Button Shushing Action

    You may be wondering....Who is Nancy Pearl?  Well, she is only the most famous Librarian.....ever!!!  This action figure is actually autographed by Nancy Pearl herself, a real-life librarian currently working in the Seattle area.

    The Librarian Action Figure captures librarians' fierce yet friendly spirit. The 5-inch posable figure is made of durable plastic, so she's rugged enough to leap tall book shelves and wrestle with Melvil Dewey (of Decimal System fame)


    13th Prize: Power Flower
    A lovable flower, MP3 Speaker and Clock

    Here's a lovable flower that doesn't sit there like a potted plant. Nope — miFlower™ will love you right back! Connect miFlower™ to an iPod® or other music player and it comes alive — playing your music through its built-in speaker; happy expressions on its LCD face; two leaves waving; and six petals flashing colorful LED lights.

    14th Prize: Titanium Spork
    The Spork of the Gods

    Every mythic hero normally has an equally mythic weapon. Zeus had his thunderbolts. Thor had his hammer, Mjolnir. King Arthur had his Excalibur. Frodo and Bilbo had their Sting. Rhydderch Hael had his Dyrnwyn. King Kong had his bananas…you get the idea. It's time for you to join the ranks of the heroes and heroines of lore as you weld your own legendary weapon in your battle against a very powerful foe: hunger.

    The Titanium Spork is ready for the challenge. Titanium is known for its great strength, corrosion resistance, and light weight, which makes this spork a valuable asset around feeding time. Imagine how much more food you could shovel in at your local buffet if you didn't have to worry about the strain of picking up a heavy fork or spoon. Your food consumption can become the stuff of legends. Even just holding the Titanium Spork in your hand, you can feel its power. It is perhaps the greatest gastronomic invention since lickable wallpaper. Hunger, beware - your end is near!

    15th Prize: Star Trek Captain Kirk in Chair Action Figure
    Don't sit in the Captain's chair!

    Featuring the iconic Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise, this deluxe Captain's Chair set delivers an incredible Art Asylum design - accurate to the smallest of details! Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek, this piece brings one of the most famous science fiction characters of all time into your collection! Comes in window-box packaging and is ready to display. Now where did he put the remote?


    16th Prize: Mood Beams
    They express their cute personalities with light shows

    These four little creatures respond to music with a variety of lightshows — heartbeat; rainbow; strobe; color dance; or color hold (a steady glow). Turn off their Beat Sensor and they'll still attempt to dazzle you with ever-changing lights of red, yellow, purple, green, orange and blue — each with its own distinctive color palette. They stand about 3 1/2" tall.
