YOUR entries cracked me up, so I am adding another prize for Lydia K at the Word is My Oyster for her "Poultry in Motion" that had me laughing.  

Lydia, you've won an ornamental grass set.  I SOOO should have bought a second one of these. You grow REAL grass right at your desk.  Comes with scissors to "mow" when it gets too long.
