Man. When Muppet fans enter a contest, they enter a contest!
A couple weeks ago, we put out a call for entries asking you to make a meme centered around Bert and/or Ernie. Five of our favorites will win free copies of the new book “The Importance of Being Ernie (and Bert)”. Everyone who entered will get a free, rare Sesame Street pin! You can’t lose!
We were pleased to receive over 60 entries! That’s a LOT of pins! And a whole lot of memes. I didn’t even know there were 60 memes.
So without further ado, here are our five lucky winners:
Let’s give those five talented folks a hand! (It’s your choice if the hand is live or rod.) Choosing the winners was particularly difficult since there were so many amazing entries, so here are just a few of our assorted runner-up favorites:
Now let’s give THOSE Muppet fans a hand! Did I mention how impressed I was by everyone’s creativity and hard work? Because I totally am.
Below, you’ll find the rest of the contest entries. These were all fantastic too, but much like Ma and Emmet Otter five minutes before their movie ended, they were just missing, well, something a little special.
Many thanks to everyone who entered our contest, and to the good folks at Macmillan Publishing for providing the prizes! If you didn’t win, be sure to get yourself a copy of “The Importance of Being Ernie (and Bert)” wherever books are sold or online.
And stay tuned to ToughPigs for more contests coming soon!
