I am convinced that my new home is an insane asylum and that Melly is the patient/inmate. She decided that we need to have a contest to promote the new capybara puzzles (virtually all featuring Caplin Rous, one featuring Dobby Winnick and NONE featuring me). I can go along with that. It’s a good cause, The ROUS Foundation, and I think arts and crafts is a fun kind of contest.
But then Melly decided that she had to make one herself to kind-of show people what to do. ZOMG! Do you see that thing she made? People! People! Please do not base your entries on that. As soon as I can I am going to mash that thing under my paws. Then Melly had the nerve to say that her crafty capybara was me because it is not cute enough to be Caplin! I admit it is not cute enough to be Caplin but it is also not cute enough to be me! It isn’t cute enough to be ANY capybara! Even the least cute capybara is infinitely cuter than that.
Okay, okay. I have to calm down. Breathe. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
I’m better now.
So let’s talk about the contest. Here are the rules:
- Anyone can enter with as many entries as you like
