The Big Game!

Warning! If you are still suffering from Game Day Fever (aka: A Hangover), the following items could actually cause dizziness, nausea and vomiting:



Here, we have two oversized Mary Kay handbags, perfect for storing and toting any Post Super Bowl hurlings! This transparent-and-bright-pink monstrosity...

...is great if you want everyone to see what you ingested yesterday at your Big Game Festivities! Despite being the same color as Pepto Bismol, this item is pretty much guaranteed to push you over the edge if you're feeling even a little bit queasy.

For those of you who like to be a little more discreet about their indiscretions, there's this sleek gray masterpiece...

...which allows the user to vomit in private and still go about her day.

After all the yakking, nothing freshens you up better than a month old (at least) mini Christmas Candy Cane!

I assume this was found inside of one of the purses after they were placed on the NeighborGoodies Table. My only hope is that some wandering child doesn't pick up this piece of trash and consume it. It could prove worse than eating lead paint chips and washing it down with an asbestos shake. If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Don't Eat Anything Off The NeighborGoodies Table. You're gambling with your life!

And speaking of Gambling... I hope that all of your illegal bets paid huge dividends yesterday at The Big Game, you bunch of ne'er-do-wells. If not, perhaps you can try your luck at the First-Ever NeighborGoodies Contest!

Yes, loyal readers, it's time to reward you for your dedication to other people's crap... by giving you an opportunity to win a useless item from the Very Table that you adore on an inconsistent-two-to-three-times-per-week basis!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my distinct pleasure to present to you:


That's right! If you can Guess The Goodie, you can Get The Goodie!

You see, next to the bags and candy cane, I found this box lying face-down on the Table:

It's a greenish-yellow and dark-green checked box, less than an inch thick, featuring the images of a both a lemon slice and a lime slice.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was inside of the box and, after snapping a few more photos...


...I turned it over and was surprised to discover its contents. And so, NeighborGoodie Enthusiast, if you can guess what's inside--I will send you the box and its innards absolutely free!

As you can see when compared to the mini candy cane...

...the box is not very big. So guess wisely. Or don't. Because it could contain anything. ANYTHING.

The rules are simple!

In the comments section below, feel free to take One Guess Per Day! (Be sure to leave your name, fool!) The first person to Guess The Goodie correctly wins!

Any questions? Good. Now...get to guessin'!
