150!!! wacky tacky - We Dig GIVEAWAYS!!!

Can you believe it?  We are now up to 150 followers!  It is hard to imagine, given the ubiquity of self-published stream of consciousness on the internet, that anyone would have found, followed, or "friend-ed" us.  We are grateful for the friendships we have forged here and for all of the funny, kind, inspiring, and thoughtful comments you have shared over the past 183 entries into our wacky tacky journal.

Yes, for your friendship and patronage we are truly grateful.  To commemorate the auspiciousness of the occasion we have, in one fell swoop, both a thrilling announcement and an exciting giveaway (you must watch the video first).


  

Presenting the official wacky tacky t-shirt!  Destined to be the first in a long series of wacky tacky apparel, the wacky tacky t-shirt is designed and printed in the good ol' US of A by Tugboat Studios (the only resource for all of your design and screen printing needs).

"WACKY TACKY, WE DIG OLD STUFF"
Available in sizes Child's XL - Adult XXL

Just in time for the holidays, the official wacky tacky t-shirt, makes the perfect gift.  Aunts and uncles, dads and grads, any shape, any size, there is wacky tacky t-shirt for everyone on your holiday list - even yourself!

See, there is a t-shirt for anyone and everyone.
Yes, this is Mr. Tiny's actual family not a group of highly-trained, professional models.

wacky tacky pride

One of these t-shirts, plus our set of four collectible pinbacks, can be yours by simply entering our 150-Follower Giveaway!!!


Our first giveaway essentially had no rules at all except "follower" status because, as a rule, I hate rules!!!  The truth is, we would love to earn a larger following so we can spread the wacky tacky gospel to a broader congregation.  So, this time around there will be a few rules only so that we can get more people to join in on the fun.

RULES FOR ENTRY:

1. All entrants must be official followers of wacky tacky (new followers are definitely welcomed and encouraged).
2. All entrants must leave a comment in the comments section of this post (it can be about anything - food, your pet, news of the day - preferably something you love about Mr. Tiny's bowtie collection).
3. To earn a double entry, you must show a link, in the text of your comment, where you have shared the giveaway on your blog, Facebook page, Twitter account (sorry for my neediness).
4. All entrants must have a valid mailing address to which I can ship your prize (foreign or domestic).
5. All entrants must have a deep and abiding love of wacky tacky, Mr. Tiny, and accordion music (honor system, not necessarily in that order).
6. All entries must be received by Friday, November 30, 2012



There you have it.  It's as easy as one, two, three.  Follow wacky tacky, tell your friends about wacky tacky, and leave a comment about wacky tacky.  The winner will be chosen at random at an arbitrary time (7:03pm PST) after an arbitrary period of entry (one week) and will be announced in an upcoming blog post.  Odds of winning are entirely dependent on the number of entries.  The giveaway is open to wacky tacky followers anywhere in the world as long as they have an address recognized by the USPS.

If you don't happen to be the lucky winner, but you can't wait to get your hands on one of these beauties, fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of adequate joy; the official wacky tacky t-shirt is available for purchase at Mr. Tiny's South Side Market on etsy right now!!!

You'd better enter or I'll sick these toughs on you!
The little one's the meanest!!!

Thanks again for your support and friendship.  We hope that you've enjoyed the blog and will continue to share in the love of all things wacky tacky!


Cheers!

Mr. Tiny

  6. Congratulations on 150. I have often thought that you should turn your blog into a Wacky Tacky coffee table book about all the wacky tacky places you can visit. Think about it.

  12. Congratulations, Mr. Tiny! As a relative newcomer to the wonderful world of Wacky Tacky in the past few months, I can tell you that I am so happy to have found it and you, courtesy of my friend Moe. (When Moe and I see each other we say things like, "DID YOU SEE THAT MR. TINY WENT TO THE CROCHET MUSEUM?") It's a hard call to say what I love more -- Mr. Tiny, Wacky Tacky and accordion music. All three are tops.

    I posted on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/karen.finlay/posts/310557009059159?notif_t=like (not sure of you can see it) and my Twitter: https://twitter.com/sparkleneely and if I ever update my sad little blog, I'll post there, too.

    Congrats again! Hooray for Mr. Tiny!

  13. Only 150 - surely there should be another 0 or two on the end of that number! Look forward to all your posts, and if I'm ever in Southern California I'm definitely using your blog as a travel guide. Surely there's a market for terazzo obsessed travellers!

    Will re-blog later and give you the link. Take care!

  22. Mr Tiny you always make a huge smile on my face with each post. I really need this t-shirt because I was talking with a friend this weekend about t-rex, and we both realized we have so many questions unanswered about him...like...in which position did he sleep? Is it true that when he fall down he died because he couldn´t get up with those tiny arms?....so many questions so little answers but I hope the t-shirt will make my ignorance more bearable...I always wanted to ask you, are your ancestors Croatian? Cheers from Berlin!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahahaha!!! I never thought about a t-rex's sleeping habits but now I can't think of anything else. I think that is why he was so bottom heavy so the likelihood of his falling over would be limited. As a matter of fact, my ancestors are from that part of the world. How did you know??? I would love to know more about that culture because, unfortunately, we have no connection the people or country. Thank you so much for entering the giveaway!

  24. Hip hip hooray!!! Congrats on the followers! Your blog always makes me wish I lived in SoCal (which is no mean feat, haha) so I could spend all day hanging out at vintage bowling alleys and steakhouses. Just like the Laurence Welk Show and the Ingenues (http://youtu.be/8ACtACBX0gM) left me wishing I could play accordion...

  25. Congrats Mr. Tiny! You should have 150,000,000 followers!

    I love everything about Annette Funicello...

    Jayne Mansfield was a goddess.

    If you ever come out to the Downey area again - give me a call.

    I posted it on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sectmaniac

    Everyone who is my friend should be a follower of wacky tacky! Our fearless Wacky Tacky leader is giving away goodies just because he's a swell fella...

    Seriously - subscribe to the wacky tacky blog and learn a thing or two... get nostalgic about things from our youth... and on occasion get teary-eyed. Yes, it's THAT good!
