Take Your Rubber Chicken To Work Week 2011!

The voting results are in!

The results are in and we have a winner! We had some very strong entries, but finally a winner emerged!

Big thanks to everyone that entered and everyone that voted!!!

And the winner is....

"Chicken Blight" by Tina Caputo (and staff?)!!!

I think this magazine cover speaks for itself... (Soundtrack: "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", as performed by Marvin Gaye. Cluck yeah.)

Best comments from voters:

  • "Having created many fake magazine covers myself, this one gets my *%#&@! vote."
  • "Only California chickens would do such a thing. So cocky!"
  • "I need to know how the rubber chicken invasion ends!!"
  • "I did the design. That's why I get paid the big BOCKS!" (hmmmm...)

"Chicken Probing" by Jen Chaloux

Jen tells us: "I brought my rubber chicken to the hospital where I work." But looking at these pictures I suspect Jen and co-worker Matt may have done a stint on a flying saucer! (Soundtrack: "Space Oddity" by David Bowie)

Best comments from voters:

  • "I love rubber chickens and think probing is a good thing."
  • "Of course, I'm voting for myself!"
  • "I love the probing~ lol"
  • "no live chickens where harmed in this procedure. PETA approved. Rubber chicken industry is up in arms though."

"Toot-orial Chicken" by Elissa Creighton

Elissa writes: "I work at a tutoring center... each tutor has a sticker that represents his learning style, and we found that Rubber Chicken learns best musically." We can't help but notice that the sticker also correctly identified the most musical part of the Rubber Chicken's anatomy. (Soundtrack: "O Sole Mio" as performed by Le Pétomane. Seriously, that must have been epic.)

Best comments from voters:

  • "I've always admired Toot-orial. I can't think of another rubber chicken more deserving."
  • "There's nothing better than an over-achieving, well-educated, musical rubber chicken. Love it!"
  • "Education is so important and we all know that beings learn differently. Would that all children were given the opportunity to learn musically! Oh wait; we don't really like gas masks, do we?"

"Crash Test Chicken" by Danielle Dearing

Mercifully moving on to other parts of a rubber chicken's anatomy, Danielle relates a harrowing experience: "Nailed! A chicken really did fly into the windshield while driving out to a job site for work. The chicken was history, hence the Twisted Oak Rubber Chicken becoming an important part of our photo op." (Soundtrack: "Fly on a Windshield" by Genesis. Yes, really.)

Best comments from voters:

  • "Ow."
  • "Awww. Poor little chicken. That'll put an answer to age old question of why did the chicken cross the road?"

"Video Conference Chicken" by Denni and Jim Oravec

Denni: "Jim and I both work from home, so it isn’t quite as exciting as the operating room or the airplane, but we thought we’d give Rueben a taste of what our work day is like. Most of our time is spent on conference calls, so we decided to include him in one of our video calls and made him the “subject” of our staff meeting. He had his own chair and webcam to boot!" (Soundtrack: "Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles)

Best comments from voters:

  • "Why not?"
  • "some great submissions! However; I could totally see a video short, featuring the Video Conference Chicken on one end and a very baffled, confused and frustrated "business" type on the other end. My experience is that it's difficult, at times, to get a rubber chicken to focus."

"Poet Laureate Chicken" by Gwendolyn Alley

Gwen: "Danika and I decided to take my son’s rubber chicken to our “Message in a Bottle: Ocean to Ojai” writing workshops. Our rubber chicken learned a lot about poetry, wine, and local natural history. We thought our rubber chicken was named Murgatroyd but we discovered that was a favorite saying (and Twisted Oak wine) not a name: Beverly is actually the name of our rubber chicken."  (Soundtrack: "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay", by Otis Redding)

Best comments from voters:

  • "Long live Beverly!"
  • "just wait until you hear Bev's sonnet!"
  • "'Anything you want to say?' Don't encourage me. I'll talk till cock's crow."
