Super Skanktacular Saturday Giveaway!

Okay, okay...I know I said I had reached my self-imposed limit on ridiculous blogs posts for the week, but this is different. I'm giving away free stuff! To celebrate the fact that I have FINALLY convinced my daughter to get rid of a certain collection of dolls that I'm not very fond of, for the next few Saturdays, I will be giving away groupings of them.

Here's the deal: In the comments section or via email (katdishrich@gmail.com), convince me how much you want these lovely little dolls and accessories pictured. Leave a caption, tell a story, make me laugh! I'm not going to judge the contest, because I don't want to have to decide. So, I'll probably ask Jeff, Tamara and my husband Ron to pick a winner. Special consideration will be given to those who link this post to other blogs authors who have never read this blog. Come on, spread the love that is Hey Look A Chicken! Ready? Let's do this thing!

Super Skanktacular Saturday Giveaway No. 1:

The Kardashian Sisters Collection:


What better way to kick off this contest than dolls representing Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian? Surely these ladies represent all things Skanktacular!


Come on, people. You gotta admit, the resemblance is uncanny! You will also receive 3 additional skanky outfits:


Contest deadline next Saturday, 9:00 AM central time. At that time, I will also reveal the next group of dolls: "Slutty Girlz Rock Band!" Good Luck!

EDITOR"S NOTE: Annoying mother and bail money not included.

UPDATE: I realize many of you are saying, "Sure, those dolls are Skankalicious, but I really don't have a need for them." I am also willing to send these dolls to a friend, beautifully gift wrapped in an empty Fancy Feast cat food box, with gift card included. The longer these things are in my house, the more likelihood that my daughter will change her mind! Enter early, enter often!

What's up with the feet already in the shoes?

katdish said...

Annie - I know, freaky-deeky, huh?

Beth said...

No way. I want no part in your evil games. (Isn't Mermaid Dora torture enough???) One of the first things I said after finding out I was pregnant with a girl was that I would never let these type dolls be in her posession. :)

Although...it might be really funny to send them to Frank at work at the IT department in city hall...

Wendy said...

You took them away from your daughter? What's up with that? How is a young girl to follow her dreams of becoming a shameless hussy without those dolls as role models? Everyone's gotta have a dream...

Candace Jean July 16 said...

Since Helen doesn't think it needs to be Halloween to dress like this, then if I win, please send them to her. What are friends for?

vanityofvanities said...

I'm going to echo Annie K. I'm super-freaked out by the feet/shoes.

Nevertheless, I am entering the contest. I want the dolls very badly because they need to be returned to the poor little girl whose mother stole them from her. Oh yeah - please gift wrap them and send them to "Katdish's Daughter."

Helen said...

This reminds me of a post I did months ago about why I wasn't aloud to have a Barbie.
My daddy is rolling in his grave seeing from Heaven the kind of dolls out there now. Which is good, because he could use a little exercise before Resurrection Day.

Helen said...

The above comment should say "allowed", not "aloud".

katdish said...

Wendy - FAIL!

Angela - FAIL!

Helen - either way, I laughed "aloud".

Erin said...

I'm delurking to say....

Great giveaway! Here is why I want my two year old to have them. I'm a bit overweight so I'm not properly able to display for my prostatot the styles and fashions that will attract all the boys and girls in her youth group. These shameless hussy dolls give me the chance to properly model for my sweet innocent little girl the way modern tweens dress and act!

So that is why we need them in our home, thanks for this great offer. As of now my sweet two year old has no positive role models aside from me, and I've got rolls, so I have to cover my body a bit more.

(and after reading you for a while I hope you will get my sarcasm)

katdish said...

At this point, Erin is the clear cut winner! She obviously understands the skanktacularness of these lovely little vixens!

And Beth - just so you know, I have three more sets of these lovely little dolls. If there are no clear cut winners, said dolls will be sent to a certain animatronic Santa Claus owning mother-in-law with a simple note saying "Annabelle would love these!" Evil? I prefer EVIL GENIUS! mwha-ha-ha!

nikkismikki said...

If only skantacular weren't the only word to describe those Bratz dolls. Haha. And what's up with them having nubs for feet?! Those dolls would always scare my daughter when she was younger, thank goodness!

Nick the Geek said...

I want these dolls to teach my young daughters how to do surgery since they have removable feet. After that we can learn how to torture. I know you might think that removing feet is torture but if it doesn't involve fire it isn't real torture for toys.

katdish said...

Nick - I was not aware that Sid from Toy Story was based on an actual person. This explains so much...

JML said...

I think I can do this. . . I had a friend named Shaniqua, who went everywhere I did, for reasons I'll get to shortly. She had lived a shameless life making a young girl feel bad about her shape and size until one day, this smart little girl popped Shaniqua's head right off her body, which quickly disappeared! While cleaning her room one day, her mother found this poor headless wretch, took pity on her, and made plans for the life she would soon have. A few days later, I found Shaniqua, firmly planted on the antenna of my car. She was forced to reform, but found mercy and became the mermaid on the front of my ship.

True story, she stayed there for two years. I wish I had a picture, because she was sunburnt, balding, what hair she did have always went straight back, and she was beginning to go blind in one eye as the paint wore off. She was ripped off when I was at a stoplight in downtown Boise one day.

♥ Kathy said...

I'm a little creeped out by the feet in the shoes too :s ummm why did they do that?

Nick the Geek said...

kathy,

It is to preserve the sanity of parents who are constantly asked to put the shoes on barbies, a near impossible feat. (yeah I went there)

JML said...

By the way, it should be a poor bodiless wretch. I guess I wasn't paying attention.
:)

katdish said...

Jake -

This is exactly why I cannot be an impartial judge. Before the days of voice mail and instant messaging, and companies actually paid people to answer the phone, whenever I left a message for any of my friends at work, I would always leave the name Shaniqua. I am not making this up! But the fact that you used a doll head as an antenna ball will most likely score you high points with Jeff.

Stacy from Louisville said...

I need them so i can give them away on my blog. They are just that tacky.

Tony C said...

I possess two GI Joes who have been exiled in apathy since 1977. Since it's obvious that God has deemed my offspring to be X chromosomes only, the forgotten soldiers are destined for a fate only eBay can provide.

But alas, the promise of three hot (if somewhat freakishly proportinate) babes could completely change the moral and ultimate outlook for the honorable veterans, and the addition of three prospects in companionship to the cardboard box of banishment could forever change a path destined to be akin to a scene from Brokeback Mountain. Oh the humanity! Don't let it happen Katdish...don't let it happen!

katdish said...

Stacy - Get your own tacky crap. Based upon your previous giveaways, you obvious have good sources.

Tony C - Your BS skillz are impressive, to be sure. No doubt honed by many years of playing in bars.

Tony C said...

Now that just hurts...although true...it still hurts!

Now you know why I'm destined for girls only...poetic justice some would say.

By the way, my verification word is 'hatedo'...is that another sign?

Rrramone said...

This is my first time on your blog. And I want, nay, NEED these dolls. (I found you because I took the photo of Audrey, Tanya's new Smart Car which you left a comment about :-).

Yet I am conflicted. As a straight dude how does one make a plausible plea for 3 skeevy, slutty, appendage-challenged, glorious figures of skanktacularity without losing any of the virile potensity of my maleness? Truth be told, I know all the lyrics to The Wiz, so I realize that is already being scrutinized by "those who decide who is truly gay".

So I could make my plea for these morsels of magnificence in 3 ways: convince you I am so pathetic that you send them out of pity, that I am deserving in some way, or simply that I am odd enough to provide them with a good (meaning disturbed) home base. I offer as proof a tiny sampling of the inner landscape to which you'd be subjecting thee dolls:

http://williebaronet.blogspot.com/2008/11/illustration-friday-wise.html

I urge you to recognize the plea of the truly desperate, and send these dolls to me.

I'd also be fine with just the feet.

katdish said...

rrramone -

Your argument is indeed compelling. I am tempted to send them to you just to see how these little skanky muses might make it into your next art project. Perhaps you fall into the category of "people who are gay, but just don't know it yet". I had a friend that pretty much assigned that monikor to every straight man he ever met, including my boyfriend at the time. But I digress...

Alas, I am not the final judge. You may win, you many not. However, all non-winning entries will be carried forward to next week's contest: "Slutty Girlz Rock Band!"

Either way, I may have to send you some feet just because you made me laugh and spew my morning coffee.
