So far, I’ve claimed to have a boa constrictor, a tarantula, and an electric eel as pets. None of which is true. But hey!, if I did, I’m pretty sure none of them would tug at the heart strings. I feel similarly about a Praying Mantis or a badger. But a thousand-buck gift card is pretty good swag. I don’t blame you for
cheating looking for competitive advantages. I have absolutely no influence in this contest, and I have no reason to believe that any of the following ideas would help in the slightest. That said, here’s a list, compiled by some guy with too much time.
A python probably wouldn’t win. A Viper, maybe. A python, probably not. No, a viper wouldn’t win, either.
Guard dogs behind chain-link fences rarely smile pretty for the camera. Unless they’re eating raw meat.
Cats. I don’t know where to start with cats. You’re on your own with cats.
Please don’t humiliate your pet, by sending a picture of it in a demeaning costume. And here, I’m not talking about the contest; I’m just sayin’ in general….
I’d love to say I’m not above bribes, but the good news here is, that I’m not a judge (Ditto, Sibila, Josh, Whitney). That’s good news, because I learned a long time ago, as a judge in a beauty contest of any species, you make one friend, and 50 enemies. Not a good ratio.
Good luck with all this. Now, go get ’em, Tiger.
