    But first... a word from our Sponsor: StupidCubicle.com
    This month we are happy to have a brand new sponsor. It is our sister site, StupidCubicle.com . The site only has a few products right now, but they are cool products. This site caters to folks that really like gadgets, but did not win. You can find some of the prizes here and more will be added every day Be sure to give them some love.  Drop us an email and let us know what you think.




    And now....on to this Month's Prizes


    Grand Prize: USB Chameleon

    It Blinks eyes, Sticks out the Long Tongue on your PC, Nintendo Wii, MS Xbox, SONY PS3 or any device having USB Port!



    1st Prize: 2.0 GB USB Puppy Drive

    This USB Puppy dog drive just wants a bit of love. If you want to add some big-time cuteness to your techie life, put this guy in charge of your files. The little guy is just taller than a standard USB Flash Drive and can sit on top of your computer or laptop and keep you company as you burn the midnight oil working on your latest project. He is also small enough for you to throw him in your pocket when you need to take your files with you. 



    2nd Prize: Clocky

    Clocky will let you set your snooze time for 0-9 minutes, but you can only snooze once before he runs away - or if you prefer tough love, you can program it so it runs right away.



    3rd Prize: USB Humping Dog

    Here's a really weird little USB drive that has one thing that is really unique - it features moving parts. As soon as you plug the humping dog into your computer it starts humping it. Whoo! Whoo! Who let the dogs out!



    4th Prize: Self-Stirring Mug

    This mug has a miniature battery-operated propeller at the bottom of the well that spins at 3,000 rpms at the touch of a button on the handle, automatically stirring your beverage and eliminating the need to dispose of stirrers or find a place to leave coffee-dampened spoons. At your command the propeller re-stirs mugs of hot chocolate, coffee, or tea, preventing chocolate or sugar from settling out of solution, and overcoming the traditional challenge of adequately mixing honey in a hot drink. The mug includes a lid to keep contents from spilling and to retain heat, and the lid can be placed underneath the mugs base as an impromptu coaster



    5th Prize: Palmsize Micro Copter

    You will be amazed the first time you see this Palmsize Micro Copter take off from your hand. It's like a tiny robotic hummingbird transported from a future society where all remote controlled toys are micro-sized and super cool.
    We won't kid you. Flying this mini copter takes some of those twitchy video game skillz you've been perfecting on FPS shooters. But once you get the knack of it you won't be able to stop zooming it around your home or office. Unlike a traditional R/C helicopter, the Palmsize Micro Copter is always moving forward. You control the hover height and right or left turns. By a slight twist of the tail before takeoff you can adjust how quickly the copter moves forward.



    6th Prize: Mario Bros. Animated Phone Strap

    These nifty animated phone straps feature your favorite Mario characters and do a simple animation with a pull of the cord. There are two main styles. Jumping Mario or Luigi reveal a mushroom, star or other goody above the brick or question box they are hitting. Classic Mario style pipes reveal a venus flytrap or jumping Mario character. There are eight varieties in all and each is about an inch when fully extended.

    Please keep in mind that these Mario Bros. Animated Phone Straps are limited edition Japanese imported capsule toys and are random packed. When we sell out, these are gone and we cannot get more. You cannot choose the specific model you receive. Please read the sidebar below for more information.



    7th Prize: Nintendo Hit Block! Super Mario Brothers

    Hit the block, you can hear the familiar sound. Jump, getting coins and items and more, you can hear the funny effect sounds of Super Mario Btrothers. You feel as if you are playing Super Mario Bros. Enjoy adventure with Marimo and Luigi!



    8th Prize: Wind Up Grannies

    Wind up grannies race at crippling speeds, it makes your heart beat with pride for these speedy oldsters. Just wind then up and watch then go. But there is some skill as well by adjusting the grannies arms to find the best racing position. Race your grannies to settle office disputes, who buys the next round, or who makes the tea. Set of two



    9th Prize: Japanese Lucky Poo

    For those of you who don't know, the kanji for "lucky" in Japan is very similar to the shortened form of the Japanese word for "poo." Hence the brilliant Japanese played with the pun and the Lucky Golden Poo was um..born. But, contrary to popular belief, golden poo is lucky in more places than just Japan. It is also lucky in Ireland. Extensive research on the internet has shown without a doubt that the famed Pot o' Gold that Leprechauns protect is actually a Chamber Pot o' Gold (i.e. lucky golden leprechaun poo). And don't even get us started on the "Goose Who Laid Golden Eggs" story. Eww.

    Anywho, we're now offering Lucky Golden Poos because we know how much everyone can use a little more luck in their lives. We recommend attaching them to your cell phone (as the Japanese do) for only lucky calls. You could attach it to your Wiimote for extra luck in gaming (Wii and Poo, together again!) You could buy the 2-pack and do both! Or you could keep one Lucky Poo for you and give one to a deserving friend. Because nothing says friendship than sharing Poo.



    10th Prize: Slingshot Monkey

    What do you get when you cross a slingshot with a monkey?   Well, if it's a real monkey, you probably get a dead monkey. But if it's a toy monkey, you get this amazing new invention.

    The Slingshot Monkey is a stuffed monkey dressed like a superhero -- complete with cape and mask so nobody will no his true identity. His forearms are made of super-stretchy rubber, with special pockets in the hands so you can get a good grip on him. When you pull him back and let him go, the Super Monkey goes soaring across the room or yard.

    And not only does he fly up to 50 feet, but he SCREAMS ALONG THE WAY! There's some type of chip and speaker inside that is activated once the monkey is airborne.



    11th Prize: My Life: Based on a True Story

    Who knows better than you?



    12th Prize: Desktop Carnivorous Plant Set

    We truly understand you have needs. Especially at work where minutes often last hours and hours become days. You need to be entertained, you don't want your neurons to prematurely atrophy. You crave stimulation. You crave a Carnivorous desktop plant set. Perfect for the casual office worker who delights in watching insects slowly meet their makers as they are painfully digested by an engaging variety of meat-sucking flora. Nothing quite like it.

    So what's our recommendation? Grab a set and grow your own collection of feared and famous carnivorous plants. This deluxe set has seeds from over ten varieties of carnivorous plants! Watch these fascinating plants grow into bug-eating monsters and delight in creating your own authentic bog with the included peat planting mix, blue Swamp Rocks, three Bog Buddies and full color decals. This rare and unusual collection of carnivorous plants will flourish for years in this specially designed terrarium with proper care...
