Highlights of the Vista mousemat giveaway responses

Ever since I announced the Official Windows Vista Mousemats giveaway just 3 days ago, my email inbox has been full of quirky and fun responses to the question on the submissions page, “In one word or less, why do you want a mousemat?” To be exact, I’ve received 349 entries so far. So I thought I’d share some of them here. And since this is a random prize-draw, plagiarism is encouraged!

  • Supercalifragilisticexpialidoceous — Surprisingly only one person submitted this, but there were a few variations
  • for when i get vista via Bit Torrent — Probably not the best idea to send your email and name along with that
  • For the same reason there are more Porsche-Baseballcap owner than actual Porsche-Owners: it’s cheaper this way. — Got to get myself one of those
  • It’s the Official Windows Vista Mousemats! — Thank you for completing the comprehension test
  • Because I have one bum cheeks smaller than the other and I use it to sit on with that one cheek — Too much information
  • Quality is not being judged?!?!? Of course it is! And I would not blame you if you threw out those other entries of ‘lesser quality’ and just made this one the winner! Thank you. — Done
  • To use with my circular-shaped mouse — You mean, you don’t have a circular-shaped mouse?
  • Good question. I use a touchpad… — At least you’re honest
  • Because deep inside of my heart of hearts I’m actually a Microsoft fanboy. Shh… don’t tell anyone. — Whoops
  • To throw like a frisbee at Mac fanboys around the office — I don’t know how well mousepads fly, but I like your way of thinking
  • Rumour has it that this mat contains a hidden version of Service Pack 1 for Vista… — Shhhhh

I’d like to give James Senior one last plug for providing these mousemats.

  2. Meh, Mine’s not up there, but it was also not very creative. It did however fit under the ‘one word’ rule. Although, if there were compound words like the one I created, first graders everywhere would be pulling their hair out.

  3. Hi I would like to comment on the microsoft windows vista orb mousepad. I would like to know where I can purchase one of these mad pads from. I am interested in getting a new mouse pad and I was looking for one with a windows vista or xp logo. I think this one has a neat design and I hope to be able to purchase one. Thank you.
