This is going to be one of the most fun "What the heck is it?" games ever. Why?? Because I honestly can't remember what that thing is! I saw it online and I bought it to maybe show on The Giz Wiz. It showed up in a plain box with no name, no label and no instructions. It didn't come from Amazon, so it wasn't in my "past orders" file. So do you know what it is? Maybe you'll jog my memory. To play, come up with the right answer, or make up a silly, or inventive answer that we find funny or clever that describes the gizmo shown. We give away up to three dozen autographed copies of MAD Magazine. (Up to 12 for the correct answer, up to 24 for cute, silly answers.) IMPORTANT! The judges have very small attention spans, so make sure entries are no more than 25 words, and please make just one guess per entry. You can enter more than once, and you can enter even if you've won in the past. But you must sign your entry with a nickname, screen name, fake name, or even real name, but sign it! If it's not signed, it's not eligible.
You'll be playing for the October 2014 issue of MAD!
I have two things in that issue. My favorite is a satire on Shark Tank, with wonderful art by Tom Richmond. It features several of the folks at TWiT in the piece called Snark Tank.
Remember, right answers and cute or clever wrong answers can win! Please be sure to put " WTHII" in the subject line so we can pick it out quickly. And good luck! E-mail your entry to email@example.com by midnight (EDT) August 31st, 2014. By entering you agree this is a game for fun and laughs. Winning answers are published on this website the 1st or 2nd of September, so come back to see if you won. Because MAD is real cheap, we have to limit mailing winning copies to the United States and Canada. If you've won, follow the directions below to claim your prize! I'll tweet a few reminders for folks to check to see if they've won when winners are announced, so follow me on Twitter: www.twitter.com/thegizwiz If you answer in the comments below, everyone will see and know your answer, so that's not a good idea. Good Luck! Winners outside the US and Canada can have their names included as a "shout-out" on an upcoming Giz Wiz Show as their prize. Yep, MAD is that CHEAP!
