Truth or Dare, Chicken Poop Bingo and a Giveaway!!

Butts and Ashes is having it’s first ever GIVEAWAY!! The great folks over at CSN Stores have contacted me offering to give one lucky reader a $45 gift certificate which is good for use on any of their 200+ websites. If you're not familiar with CSN Stores, they are an online retailer that sells practically anything you could want. Need a new end table for your living room? They’ve got it. Looking for the perfect pair of shoes? They’ve got it. How about doing some Christmas shopping for the kids? They’ve got that covered too. CSN Stores are awesome!







So, how do you enter this fabulous GIVEAWAY? I’m so glad you asked.







Play truth or dare with me. I know, I know, I need to grow up already but since the likelihood of that is slim to none, play along. Go ahead. Ask me anything and I will tell you the absolute truth. Or will I?  Dare me to blog about whatever your little heart desires and I'll start typing. Come on. Here’s your chance to drive me crazy. Speaking of crazy...






Disclaimer: All sisters of mine, biological or otherwise are not invited to ask or dare since great bodily and psychological harm could come to all parties involved.



Now for the details…



The contest begins today, October 11th and ends next Monday, October 18th. This is open to all U.S. and Canadian residents. The lucky winner will have their $45 gift certificate shipped directly to them from CSN Stores. But how will the lucky winner be chosen? So glad you asked.



Chicken Poop Bingo!






That’s right, those baby chicks of ours have grown a lot and are ready to get to work a peckin and a pickin their way to a lucky Butts and Ashes winner. Each entry will be painted into a grid square in the chicken coop. The first grid to be “chosen” by a chicken wins. I even promise pictures of the entire process, from painting the names into the grids to, well, the final pick. Just think of it sort of like playing fantasy football only with chickens. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell every cotton pickin chicken you know.


Good luck and may the best chicken win!

I've seen lots of giveaways, but never one with such a unique method of picking the winner. I sort of look forward to seeing the process. Sort of.

Brian Miller said...

Blasé said...

When did you lose your....uh...

No, let me try another one.

If you had to choose to be a female Celebrity, who would it be, and why?

I don't know why I'm participating...I never win anything.

How long have you gone without showering - purposely.

Matty said...

Your contest is certainly different from any others I've seen. From the requirements to the selection process.

My question is, what is THE ONE THING you don't understand and will never have an answer for during your time on earth, that you would ask God about when you see him?

If my name has a chance to be pooped on by a chicken then I think my dare to you will be -

Have your sweet sisters submit some of their favorite photos of you To you (ah, yes, sweet revenge for them)and then you post them on this here blog of yours.

P.S. I have never met or communicated with either of said sisters or anyone they know, except for you of course.

Who needs a random generator when you have a chicken poop grid?! That's so rad.

Ok Truth: Your house is being attacked my Martians....what 3 things do you grab as you are fleeing their laser beams?

Libbie said...

The title of your post totally had me laughing already Marla!!! I guess I will just dare you to run through the yard naked & blog about it :) no, but...streak your hubby :) You know when he is watching t.v. :) & then of course we gotta hear about it :)

blueviolet said...

What's the sneakiest thing you do as a child and got away with?

Tammigirl said...

Wow, winning through poop. That's a real story to tell, ya know? I have to show my mother your blog, because I know she thinks I'm the worst, but I think you're pretty bad, too! (I'm not sure if this is a compliment or not, sometimes it feels like it depends on the day)

I don't know if I have a good dare. Or even a good question.

Tell the truth: Do you have a favorite child today?

meeyeehere said...

And all this time I have been using Random.org when I could have been playing chicken poop bingo! This is a lot more fun, messy but fun.

My question is how did you come up with this idea to choose a giveaway winner? LOL!

Gotta love those CSN Stores!

My question: Did you ever have "the (sex) talk" with your kids and, if so, how horrified were they?

TruthHole said...

Whats the worst thing you have ever been caught doing?

Kristen said...

Well if poop is going to pick it, then I will for sure win! I DARE you to read my blog ;). Just kidding. Truth - Tell us what you do regularly but hate doing it?

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

wow - my posts have been likened to a different animal's deposit (as in, that's just horse****) but i've never purposely tried to get picked by poop. interesting concept. i never win by random generator so maybe i'll win by a piece of "do"...

truth... i don't have one... if we woke up in jail together, what four words would you say to me?

Parsley said...

Hey Chicks...Poop on me! Poop on me!

Truth: If you could play this game of 'truth' with *insert political leader name here*, what would you ask?

Monkey Man said...

If you could do one immoral or illegal deed and get away with it, what would that deed be?

Anonymous said...

What have you given away, that belongs to your husband, that he doesnt know about...?

Seriously this is the best I have come up with! I only know that you would (happily) give away your own child if someone asked for him/her...probably wishing someone would take a child off your hands right now...:)

My *hope I can buy presents this year fund* is at the mercy of a little chick's digestive system? Hilarious!
I want to know if you ever act like you don't see someone you know when you don't feel like chatting?
I hope my name gets p**ped on!HaHa
Did I ever in my life think I would want that!!

Debbie said...

This may be my favorite way to be chosen ever! How original you are.
OK. Now for a question. Whchi celebrity would you give it up for?

Liz said...

Love the chicken poop grid! Truth: describe any illegal things you have ever done.

Now I'm going to put a bunch of dots on my entry, so maybe a chicken will think they are grains or bugs or something and try to eat them, and then get frustrated and poop on them instead! . . . - - - . . . . - - - - . . . . ... .. . ... ... .. - - -- - --

Glen said...

I'm not eligible to enter, being from a superior country and all but...

How many times a week do you blame your own farts on your man/child/grandchild/dog/chicken or Martian?

Unknown Mami said...

They say getting pooped on by a bird is good luck.

Okay, now I want to play.

What is the most disgusting thing you have ever put in your mouth?

Pixie said...

LOL love the way you're going to pick the winner! I've always thought of putting down a bunch of sticky notes and letting one of my cats pick a winner that way, but I would soooooo love lil chickies to help pick a winner!!

LOL and as big as a germ freak I am, I dare you to go a whole day without washing/sanitizing your hands!!! EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW LOL
