That Mind Molester device is pure evil. -GRIN-

Yes, I totally agree with your comments on the Mind Molester. I was cracking up when I first find out about it. It is so twisted. I have a lot of fun picking the prizes. My favorite prize this month is the "Geek Love Poem T-Shirt." It says:
Roses are #FF0000
Violets are #0000FF
All my base are belong to you
For those who are not familiar with the reference in the last line, it is a reference to a video created a while back that pokes fun at the butchered english found in the video games from back in the day. You can see it here if you like. It is a classic. It was actually a hit song on the radio for a short time.
One item that I found that will make it to next month's contest will be the "Location Earth Dog tag" so that you can identify the location of your planet if you are abducted by aliens. Here is a sneak preview of it.
Another possible gift is a "Marguerite Perrin, the "God Warrior"" T-Shirt or Coffee Cup. Here are a couple of links to the "short" or "longer" video. There is even a God-Warrior bobblehead, but I believe that there is only one. Marguerite Perrin, for those who have not seen her, is this mother who had this rant when she returned from a reality tv show where she apparently had to stay with a family who did not have the same outlook on religion as she did. It really cracked me up!
If anybody has any suggestions on "Stupid Prizes" that would make for cool future gifts, I am definitely open to suggestions. Remember, our motto is "We give stupid prizes to smart people", so I am looking for suggestions that fit that theme. Stupid suggestions are good, Stupid and Geeky are better. All suggestions are welcome!!! (note to self, you may regret the very last comment)

What about a plush Dilbert?

Dust Puppy, or something else from the UF universum. A sixpack pitr-cola comes to mind, or pickle-me chtulhu.

Thanks Baschull and Monte, great suggestions. I love the UF site, a bit hard to find tangible versions of your suggestions, Baschull. I am embarrassed to say that I have never see the UF site before, but I love it. It is hard not to like a site that claims "impairing productivity since 1997" The closest I was able to find was a picture of a pickle-me chtulhu http://ars.userfriendly.org/cartoons/?id=20020106 and a picture of Pitr Cola No physical versions yet, though. I will keep searching, but if you have any links that you can point me to, you will definitely see them as prizes in upcoming months. A plush dilbert? They are easy to find and who doesn't like a plush dilbert? Good suggestion, Monte.

I love UF, too. I've been reading it for two or three years now, and have read through the entire acrhives.
Ctrl-Alt-Del is another webcomic I've been following recently.

True, there isn't even a lot in plush dolls. (AFAIK that is) There is supposed to be one. You'd best mail Frazer about merchandise.
But they are examples of silly geekie things that are very recognizable. UF books, Big Foam Cluebats, "Big foam helmet of stupidity", a CD-single with one of the songs (http://www.userfriendly.org/cartoons/songs.html, including todays http://ars.userfriendly.org/cartoons/?id=20060121 You'll have to find a willing choir for that), Board versions of the games described in the sundays.
