    Weird and wonderful 14th Feb 18 at 8:05 PM
    I just wanted to start a thread for all those comps that have weird prizes or weird entry methods or whatever.

    I'll start us off with this one:

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5794820

    E: 14/03 Win spa weekend (sexy cow owners)
    https://www.fwi.co.uk/farm-life/search-find-britains-sexiest-cow.htm

    I doubt anybody on here is elligble but this was too funny not to post

    Aside from claiming the prestigious title, Britain’s Sexiest Cow will earn its farmer a spa weekend for two, plus they’ll get a photoshoot for their beautiful bovine.

    Two runner-up cows (who will undoubtedly be in a bad “mooood” after not winning) will net their farmers a fleece waistcoat.

    Farmers can enter their udderly fabulous cow by posting a photo on Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #BritainsSexiestCow.

    This competition is being run by seed breeder RAGT, so be sure to mention @ragtseedsuk in your tweet or post the photo on its Facebook page.

    Survey and the first question was, 'how often does your cleaner come to your house?'
    Not, do you have one.

    The "Sexy Cow" comp is the closest any has come to dethroning THIS as the weirdest ever.

    When I first started comping (this time round) I saw one for a 'blue plastic trumpet'. No explanation, no description, no link to the promoter, just that!

    I hope Mr "Ive got a 35 year anniversary with my equally competition addicted wife and my son who moved to America just so we had new photo's to put on competition that just ask for an answer not a life story" will enter. I'd love to be Britains Sexiest Cow my son who, here he is, would love this and so would my lovely wife off 35 years, have i mentioned our anniversary at all?

    What I want to know is, what are the parameters for a cow to be considered "Sexy" ?
