‘Win It’ Wednesday: Pig Salt Shakers

Published by PETA.

I’d be willing to bet my lucky four-leaf clover that carrying a rabbit’s foot only brings nightmares of screaming cottontails. On the other hand, I do believe the folks who say that these delightful little three-legged pigs will bring good luck to giftees. I mean, just look at them:

Piggy Shakers


I get giddy when I imagine the good fortune that I’ll receive after I toss a handful of salt from my lucky piggy salt shaker over my shoulder. I’ll have to wait until my birthday rolls around in June to score my own set (hint, hint), but you can receive yours much sooner just by telling us about a superstition that you just can’t shake. Don’t have one? Make one up. I did: Whenever Tim and I are out and about and a streetlight burns out over our heads, I plant one on his kisser. I know it’s corny, but we don’t see many shooting stars here in the city.

You know you want ’em, so post a comment that gets us feeling superstitious and you might win. We’ve got one set to give away to the person who posts the most creative entry.

The contest ends on March 3, 2010, and we’ll choose one winner on March 5, 2010. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.

Good luck!
