The Tiger Makes One Lucky Reader’s Weekend (#5Gum Winner)

winner-trophyIn internet competitions, as in life, there can sadly only be one winner and though I’d like to reward EVERYONE who entered the #5GumExperience competition yesterday, sadly I don’t have enough tickets.

The challenge was to write in the comments section and tell me what the term “Gonzo journalism” means to you cause yeah, that’s what I’m looking for, a little Gonzo journalist to send on my behalf.

Before we get into the winner, here’s what Gonzo journalism means to me. For starters it’s subjective as fuck, YOUR thoughts, YOUR feelings, YOUR experiences in their rawest, least filtered form. It is unapologetic, abrasive and real. It’s the truth, YOUR truth, whether people like it or not.

Represent The Tiger, Win 2 x Tickets For The CT #5GumExperience

Kooks 5GumThere’s a badass story about Hunter S Thompson when he was covering the campaign trail back in ‘72 and he gave his press pass to this raging maniac he met on a train.

This guy then used the pass to get access into this high profile press conference with all these presidential candidates where he proceeded to heckle the shit out of them and act like a total maniac.

The point of this whole story is that I can’t make the #5GumExperience here in CT on Saturday, so I’m giving my tickets away to one lucky reader to attend the event on my behalf and act as a Gonzo journalist for the site.

SlickTiger And The Gigantic kulula Paper Plane Invite

kulula inviteAs a kid, I prided myself on the fact that I could fold a paper jet that flew at such an incredible velocity that one time another kid made the mistake of stepping into its flight path and nearly lost an eye.

So naturally I was more than stoked when kulula delivered the flippin GIGANTIC paper plane you see pictured on the left which, as it turns out, doubles as an invitation to “The Most South African Flight Ever”.

This flight will comprise South Africa’s most diverse and representative set of locals who will all jet off together to celebrate kulula’s passion for travel.

Win Tickets To Cape Town’s First Ever Bicycle Film Festival

FixieWhat the shit is a bicycle film festival? I hear you ask, and I don’t blame you for being so confused about the whole thing because I was exactly like that when I heard about it too.

Well, to answer your burning question, a “bicycle film festival” is an entire night at the movies (in this case, the Labia Theatre in Cape Town) dedicated to “two wheeled good times”.

That’s right. Short movie after short movie about bicycles, the people who ride them, the culture surrounding them and the influence they have had on us as a motherflippin’ species yo! This is other level shit guys and you need to get involved because some of these movies are going to MELT FACES.

And the Winner Of The Tsogo Sun Competition Iiiiiiiisssssss…

JudithKeppel2Please believe me when I say this decision was not an easy one. There were at least three entries that made me actually laugh out loud, but sadly there can be only one winner.

At first I thought I’d chased potential entrants away by asking people to write a “well written” and funny sentence explaining why they need a holiday.

Over the course of the day entries did start to come through though, some more awesome than others, so before I announce the winner, I thought I’d give some props to the entries that came close.

Win A Weekend Getaway Courtesy Of Tsogo Sun And Your Tiger Pal

TsogoSale1 - 800px wideThe competitions are coming in thick and fast on TFW these days folks which means I can finally reward my loyal readers with some boodle.

That’s right, boodle. I chose that word carefully to invoke piratey scenes of golden rolling dunes, blue skies, turquoise oceans and rum because if you play your cards right, that’s exactly what you’ll win.

See, my new buddies over at Tsogo Sun have officially launched a summer sale where you can save 25% on a holiday at one of their hotels in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal or the Western Cape, but you gotta move fast, the offer closes tomorrow at 8pm!

And The Winner Iiiiiiiisssssssss…

beauty-pageant-queen1Thank you to everyone who submitted comments yesterday for the Vodacom Unlock The Power Of The Internet competition right here on TFW.

In case you missed it, I asked readers to submit captions for three insanely weird images I stole from www.explainthisimage.com and said the funniest caption (judged by me) would win 5Gb of data from Vodacom.

Well, we had some real hum-dingers yesterday – some were hopeless and some did actually make me chuckle but there can be only one and that one iiiiiiiiissssssss… RICHARD with his “Ju-Ju tiger” comment for Pic 3 – nice one charna!
