As with all Cheezburger sites, you submit a captioned version of an available photo or your own, and in this case: win prizes in the freak event of it being funny. There are contests every whatever amount of days, each with their respective prizes for the winner of said contest.
You must be a US citizen, or a Columbian, 18 years of age, to enter. FUUUUUUUU
|Contest Name||Entry Period||Prize|

It seems that this contest is the making of Cheezburger inc. and not that of EA. Although EA would fit perfectly in a scheme trying to monetize humour/humor in today’s culture.
So it’s been a few weeks, time to check in on the ol’ poll and see what the results are like, as well as bring forth a new one!
What do you think of the Create-A-Pet tool in terms of functionality. Did it do everything you wanted?
- So many options, it’s great! (41%, 253 Votes)
- I dunno, it doesn work / didn’t try it (29%, 177 Votes)
- It is missing a few to create that perfect pet, but its okay (25%, 152 Votes)
- Too many features I wanted are missing (5%, 30 Votes)
Total Voters: 612
For a poll that has been around for about 3 weeks, not too many people participated. For the most part, the majority agree that the Create-A-Pet demo was pretty darn good in terms of customization. Here’s hoping the next poll will be better, probably will, because the idea came from Black Scorpion! With a week left until Pets is released, we want to know what is the first thing you will most likely do when you first play?
BlackBerry users, you heard correct. SimCity Deluxe for tablet comes to BlackBerry’s App World for the price of $6.99! Get yours today!

Thanks to Jovan Jović for the tip.
The Sims Medieval is an iOS adaptation of the very same PC game that lets you build a Sim’s life around the romantic era of knights and dragons. Your Sim will walk, talk, and work in a fairytale-like world of simple wooden houses, cauldrons, guilds, combat, and noble quests. Fortunately, the less desirable traits of the medieval period, like outhouses, plague rats, sickness, and rampant superstition, are tucked out of the way. In fact, unlike most Sims games, you’re not asked to keep on top of your Sim’s hygiene and toilet habits. Why bother? It can be assumed that, given the time period, everyone stinks like a dying pig anyhow.
So, for all intents and purposes, lets call this a light RPG with mild sandbox elements — one that’s trimmed a bit from its PC counterpart — it’s a tiny, handheld version of a game that’s already a bit scaled big from its originals. Still, it’s one of the first truly different experiences of the Sims in a while and although it’s a more directed experience, it offers enough new to keep casual players happy. If you’re partial to medieval fantasy settings, this might be the one Sims title to really draw you in.
Very, very short review on the iPhone version of The Sims Medieval, which was rated 7 out of 10.
The Sims Medieval manages to do everything right, from the touch controls to the solid visuals. Folks interested in The Sims will love it. However, gamers not previously won over by The Sims won’t find anything to get excited about.
