Win a Hardee's 'slanket'

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 6:50 PM


So Hardee's contacted me last week with an offer I initially shrugged off. "Hardee’s new Grilled Cheese Bacon Thickburger is comforting and delicious, but how can your readers eat it if their hands are trapped inside a cumbersome blanket? Sounds like they need a Hardee’s Happy Star Slanket!" the email read. Hardee's hoped to offer one of my readers one of these things, because, as the email stated, "anything is possible with the comfort and freedom provided by the Hardee’s Happy Star Slanket!" Uh-huh.

I read the release. I saw the slanket photo. I forgot about it.

But then I started thinking. Who am I to deny you guys this horrid yellow abomination of a garment? Who am I to keep you from your slanket? Sure, it's not exactly the type of food related fun we usually cover on Omnivore, but what could it hurt?

So, whatever, I'm giving away a slanket. If you want one, send an email to with either a description or a visual representation (see example >) of why you need said slanket by midnight next Wednesday (March 17th), and we'll pick a winner. Please put "Why I need a slanket" in the subject line. Include your name and address in the email so we know where to send the slanket. We reserve the right to use whatever you send us, whether you win or not, here, in the paper, or wherever (although name and address will be kept private). Hardee's has no claim on entries. Please keep the filth to a minimum.
