Holy Sheet: A Holiday Giveaway!

December 5, 2012

Humor

The following is taken from this year’s international broadcast of The Byronic Man Christmas Special…

***

Okay, calm down people!  Stop yelling at the computer demanding to know how to enter this contest RIGHT NOW.  First thing’s first: you need to take a moment and head over to Go Jules Go and watch her video as well – partly because it’s so damn clever, partly because this contest is too big for just one video, and partly because she did all the ironing and such and deserves a little extra credit.

  1. Go Jules Go Says:

    WHAT AN AMAZING CONTEST, EVERYBODY!!!!

    My head is spinning with awesomeness! Send Mr. Fluffy Bunny to me immediately.

    AND your post has a numbered list. You showed this project manager!

    P.S. – Uncle Jesse called to say that that was his bad side and you’ll be hearing from him. You also might want to be careful where you step this morning.

      I thought about going with “I’ve got a new baby in the house” to explain Uncle Jesse’s deflated looks (and, by extension, explain why a zombie is playing the guitar and wearing a santa hat in the video), but thought that might cause more problems than it would help things…

      And, please… my project manager skills are strictly bush-league. You had to manage not only your vlog, but keep me on task, too.

    This looks like a great give away. I wish I was witty enough to come up with something creative. I’m goig to have to put my thinking cap on for this one. :)

    Hahaha. I don’t know what’s wrong with you two… but I like it. Wonderful and totally weird idea.

    Fabulous! And Jules, you know a donation has been made in your name to our local food cupboard. I don’t know how to do this one. Seriously, I’ll have to figure out how to X out Hubby and TechSupport with great artistic flair.

    Ah…the holidays. They’re so wonderful, which is why I’m so sad I’ll be recovering from a tonsillectomy and high on painkillers rather than participating in any holiday activities. My recovery would be so much better if I had the right set of sheets to throw over my barcalounger…

  7. Life With The Top Down Says:

    At first I was like What? I ain’t got time for that! But, once I saw those sheets I started channelling Martha Stewart & Steven Spielberg and thought…game on.

    For reasons I prefer not to get into, I need those Byronic sheets.

  9. mistyslaws Says:

    First of all, I need to know where to get the prior 23 years of Byronic Man Christmas Specials. Are they on YouTube? And, I seem to have missed all the special guests prior to the bunny and Uncle Jesse. Where can I see all that wonderfulness?

    Ok, this is a lot of pressure. But I have thoughts. Oh ho, I do have some thoughts. I’ll work on it. Stay tuned . . .

    And might I say that your santa hat is looking quite jaunty.

    • Go Jules Go Says:

      Side Note: B, I fully intend on crashing your comments indefinitely.

      I, too, find his cap’s jauntiness noteworthy. This vlog warms my heart like Hot Pockets and heroin.

      Kidding.

      Hot Pockets are gross.

    • The Byronic Man Says:

      Thanks, the Santa hat is custom tailored. Cost $800.

      And Paul McCartney bought the rights to the previous specials – I have no idea what he’s doing with them.

        I emailed my submission to you yesterday. Hopefully you received it and it’s not sitting in your spam folder. So . . . if you are keeping count at home, that = 1 for Jules and 1 for you. Consider me retired from photoshopping for the year! Cheers.

    My gift to you…I won’t short-sheet your bed. Just because this is such a great fricking idea. :)

    Poor Mr. Fluffy Bunny — with all of those kids, I can only imagine what he does for all their birthdays!

    Great video!

    The challenge sounds tempting. But I am such a newbie at blogging. The competition looks stiff. Though I got admit, it might be worth taking a shot to win a set of those fantastic sheets. What’s the cotton count by the way?

  14. She's a Maineiac Says:

    Just a fair warning: I have used PowerPoint today. I made a pretty kickass card for this contest. Sprinkled it with holiday cheer and just a smidgen of seasonal affective disorder, so I am GOOD to go, baby!

  15. Love and Lunchmeat Says:

    Dammit! I was hoping for an acoustic version of “I’m Getting Nothin’ for Christmas”. Sigh. Well, luckily my family is so deranged that I already have this contest in the bag…

    Wha?? Huh??? What the??? (etc, etc expressions of dumbfoundedness) This contest is da bomb! Great video, Mr. B-Man. I especially love how you got Tim Conway to hang around and do his Mr. Tudball voice for Mr. Fluffy Bunny. Comedy genius.

  19. Lisha @ The Lucky Mom Says:

    I couldn’t stop staring at the creepy lions on the fireplace. You should seriously consider covering those up before they give the baby nightmares.

    Reply

    • The Byronic Man Says:

      I hate them. When we were looking at the house before we bought it I thought, “Well, THOSE will go…” My wife loves them, though. In fact, we had a fire a couple years ago and that entire half of the house burned – everything was destroyed but those lions.

    The REAL holiday…oh, I don’t know about that :) I love the contest! It would be refreshing, wouldn’t it, to see everyone’s REAL holiday!

    We are buying a new bed this weekend, so I would really like to win brand new sheets… :) I make my Christmas card each year and blog about how the process, so I am IN!

    “It’s a pain in my fuzzy ass!” Hahaha! I love your bunny. Also that you talk to puppets. I don’t feel so bad with my imaginary animals. A greeting card contest, huh? I can only imagine the results you are going to get.

    I’m still trying to place Fluffy Bunny’s accent.

  28. UndercoverL Says:

    Wasn’t gonna do this. Just didn’t have it in me to enter another giveaway. But I re-read the rules just now and I am thinking that maybe my poem featured here might be an ample contribution to the prize drawing? I will gussy ‘er up and send it via email if necessary…

    If I sent out cards, this is what they might say.

    Wow! Steve Martin did the voice characterizations. Did he do that for free, being Christmas and all?

    I love holiday variety shows! If you could’ve also brought back John Denver for the taping, I would’ve been even more moved by nostalgia. You even have the old style puppeteering down!
