Winner of the Dill Pickle Potato Chips Announced!
By the fella.

You might be thinking to yourself right now … I … I … I don’t remember any dill pickle potato chip giveaway.

The reason for that is, you probably aren’t a fan of The Art of Doing Stuff Facebook Fanpage.  The odd time I have a giveaway over there that none of you blog readers  know about.  Unless you’re also fans of the site on Facebook.  Or psychic.

This is the second time I’ve given away a bag of Dill Pickle Potato chips on the Facebook page.  It came about when someone mentioned they couldn’t get Dill Pickle chips where they live.  Then I found out a LOT of people couldn’t buy dill pickle chips in the country/city they lived in.

That made me sad.

So I lept into action and declared once I reached a certain number of fans on my Facebook page, I’d randomly give away a bag of Dill Pickle potato chips.  The winner the first time around was in Ireland.  Yup.  Ireland. Because the Irish really need another potato related product coming into their country.

So when The Art of Doing Stuff Facebook fanpage hit 5,000 fans a little while ago I decided that was a milestone mark and it was time for another Dill Pickle Chip giveaway.  The extravagance of my generosity is kind of mind blowing.  I know.

One, single bag, of Dill Pickle Potato Chips.

To enter to win all you had to do was leave a comment telling me what city and country you lived in.

The winner was to be chosen randomly by scrolling through the list of entries and sticking my finger on the screen.  Whoever’s name  it landed on would be the winner.

Everything was going fine and dandy until the fella got involved.  I don’t even know what the hell happened, but before I knew it … the giveaway was in his hands.

And as luck would have it, I got the whole thing on tape …



Never a dull moment.





Congratulations Jennifer.

    He is just too cute..yeah I’m back..finally feel good enough to communicate with people I need to catch up on everything that I missed..Oh yeah..I love Dill Pickle problem getting them here..

    • Karen says:

      Nancy! – Funny thing. I was just wondering about you a couple of hours ago while I was approving comments. Glad to hear you’re feeling better. ~ karen!

      • Nancy Blue Moon says:

        Thanks Karen..It has been rough but I am getting better..This is the first week I have been allowed to drive again..If only my broken ribs would stop hurting so bad I would feel much better..

  2. AnnW says:

    Okay, you need a new agent. I would PAY REAL MONEY, American Dollars, or Canadian, whatever, to see you two in a Reality Show. Really. The heck with the Kardashians, all the rock stars, the apprentice wanna be’s, the Dance Moms. I do like the Pickers and Storage War people though. Your show would be The BEST. Sorry for shouting. Get on it! Please. I still can’t believe he didn’t swear at you all night when you tried to put a bandaid on him. This would be the best show ever. AnnW — not a dill pickle potato chip eater, either. I have to save myself for weaknesses with M&M’s even though potato chips are my favorite food.

  3. Lonelle says:

    Oh my!!! I was laughing out loud, thank goodness no one else is in the office yet, they already think I am crazy and this would just confirm it!! I love how randomly random that was!!!!!

  4. quincyscott says:

    So that’s what random means.

  5. Dawna Jones says:

    TO funny reminds me of how my husband would have done it too! MEN!

  6. Jennifer H. says:

    Omg, it’s me!!! I’m the winner of the dill pickle chips! You can’t even possibly imagine how much this makes my day. Of course I’m not reading/watching this at work, what would give you that idea? Thanks so much to The Fella for picking me (even if it was potentially unfair) and to you, Karen, for having the giveaway in the first place. I can’t wait to see what a Canadian dill pickle chip tastes like, I’m sure it will be scrumptious. Thank you!! :)

  7. Gayla T says:

    All this time I have been thinking you are the New Lucille Ball when I should have been thinking George Burns and Gracie Allen. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Just remember when he is driving you crazy that the couple who laughs together stays together. He’s laughing but I’m not too sure you were. Anyhoooo, I hope Jennifer is laughing as she eats those chips. I probably wouldn’t ever eat them but would frame them to hang by my tea towel. I’ll bet the hens cackle themselves silly with you two around.

  8. Shannan Matthews says:

    I have learned a lot of things from your Blog but this is a truly funny post. I am just sitting here cracking up at your boyfriend – he is hilarious!! More posts with The Fella on video! He even made you snort – I heard it!

  9. Nicole2 says:

    I didn’t enter the giveaway, because I too can walk across the street and buy them. But I need to know something. What does the fella think of people who post their pets as their profile pictures? Cause that could be a huge factor in your next giveaway.

    Too funny!

  10. Sarah A. says:

    Oh that was great! However, me snickering in my cubicle first thing in the morning has got my coworkers thinking i’m nuts. Even more so when they asked what I was laughing about and I said, “Dill Pickle Chips”! I’m getting reputation in the office as the crazy morning snicker-er because of you!

  11. Angela says:

    I agree with The Fella, I didn’t enter the giveaway because I don’t like pickles. This video makes me want to move to Canada and be your next-door neighbor, I’d get fresh eggs from the chickens, I would swipe food from your garden, and I would probably spend all day sitting outside waiting for you and The Fella to make some sort of comedic entrance.

    Yeah, we should totally make that happen.

  12. Bri says:

    Thank you for making my morning! You guys are hilarious.

  13. Sandy says:

    Love your fella! Too funny.

  14. Cynna says:

    Toooooo funny! Love it. Your accents are so cute :)

  15. christine hilton says:

    OMG! OCD!

  16. AmieM says:

    You two are hilarious!

    And it’s good to know that there are other couples who give good eye rolls and comments to each other, out of love, of course.

    And he does have an interesting process.

  17. Pate says:

    You two flippin kill me. I don’t do Facebook so I have no idea what the dill pickle chip deal is about. But I had to tell you that I’m in love with Fella and now my husband and I are sitting here drooling while we dream of dill pickle chips.
    Did you tell us where we could order them?

  18. Barbie says:

    LOLOLOL! This was great! I bet the baker “susan pretson”? LOVED it! I just laughed so hard! LOVE LOVE the fella! “no one with pictures of their kids” lolololol LOVE THAT!

    PS: I don’t know why but we can only get dill pickle chips at certain times of the year too! We hate THAT!…..and we LOVE dill pickle chips! We are in Spokane WA.

  19. Maria says:

    hmmm I thought, a video of a random draw…be fairly safe to watch that while eating my lunch….

    Not so! Nearly choked on my salad…lettuce and cucumber everywhere….it was not a good look….

    Sadly you may need to change bakers now, given the fellas discrimination against giving your local baker any of the chips.

  20. Jessica says:

    I think you should relaunch The Fella series!What a fantastic way to start a Thursday at work:)

  21. KEG says:

    H-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s! Thank you for the laughter this morning!

  22. Thera says:

    Nope, usually when I come on, I can see your post and everyone’s comments that have been made/approved.
    Earlier and yesterday, I could not see any of them and the link that states “31 Comments” was not working either.
    Funnily enough, I could see my comment awaiting approval :)

  23. Melissa says:

    Thanks for making me laugh really hard first thing in the morning. That bit about Sue Preston was hysterical, and my four-year-old was laughing right along with me, even though I’m sure she had no idea what was so darn funny. She even asked me to play it again, which I will, because I want to laugh again :D

  24. susan Preston says:

    OMG!!! I’m on my way RIGHT now to get my chips! Right across the street!! Ya know “Fella” sometimes it’s just fun to WIN something! And after cooking with all that sugar I crave SALT!! Not particularily dill pickles though cause I ain’t pregnant…. thank god! But FREE! Who can resist! That’s it! No more goodies for you! But Congrats Jennifer you are one lucky lady. :-)!! Too funny! Absolutely love it! Thanks for making my morning!!

  25. Mary Kay says:

    That was great. I love starting my day to your blog!

  26. marilyn says:

    highly entertaining…love the way the fellas mind fellas works much the same way only we call him mr herman because he dresses the way the guy on the mr herman cartoons that jim unger created did. ..and of course im mrs herman.

  27. Sally says:

    You make me laugh every day. Too funny.

  28. sarah says:

    lol That was to funny!

  29. nicole d says:

    haha… oh my goodness, i laughed my ass off watching that… mostly because the REASON i didn’t enter is A) i don’t LIKE dill pickle chips and B) i figured, if i did want them, i could just go buy them, and other people cant! haha… i <3 the fella. says it as it is. love it.

  30. Debbie Neal says:

    Gotta love the Fella!

  31. cred says:

    hilarious! can’t argue with his logic- gotta love the fella!

  32. Stefanie says:

    We don’t have dill pickle potato chips here either, but we do have dill pickle sunflower seeds- want to try?!

  33. Thera says:

    Grats Jennifer!
    But this really sucks, last few posts, I cannot see any comments and nothing happens when I click the Comments link :(

    • Karen says:

      Thera – I probably just hadn’t approved the comments yet. When the comments come in overnight, I don’t get a chance to approve them until morning. ~ karen!

  34. Lori says:

    Love the video!! It is such a guy way to do things that ladies would do so simply! LOL

  35. Beckie says:

    The Fella reminds me so much of Henry Rollins…and THAT is a Good Thing =)

  36. Diane says:

    LMAO!!!! He’s a perfect fit for you!

  37. Gina says:

    You. Two. Are. ADORBS.

  38. Phyllis says:

    Now that was funny!! I could have added to the prize with a donation of a yodling (sic) dill pickle!…Yes I do! Yes I could!

  39. mimiindublin says:

    Your Fella is simply HILARIOUS!
    He’ll go mad when he sees you uploaded the whole video!

  40. Mary says:

    Tell me about it. The “Fella”, however, does seem like a rather cheery sort.

  41. Marcia O'Duggan says:

    Love the Ikea lighting fixture in the background…I WAS paying attention, really…I am easily distracted.

  42. Debbie says:

    Good idea to spread the joy to those less fortunate. Hope Jennifer loves them. Glad you got the fella involved.

  43. Judith says:

    Aw man! I’m in Sweden so I could’ve SO knocked Jennifer out of the running. But congratulations to her anyway :). Going over to FB to become a fan now!

    Many thanks to you and the fella for giving me a huge laugh to start the day.

    • Jennifer H. says:

      Whew! I’m so lucky you hadn’t entered the contest, because Sweden totally would have beaten Colorado. I’m sure I’m going to love them! I’ll eat a few in your honor. :)

  44. Elle says:


    Don’t do Facebook myself, and never heard of “dill pickles chips”. You learn something new every day.

    It was nice to hear your voice in the clip.

  45. Lesley says:

    Hehee! Men. They just complicate everything, don’t they?

  46. Pati Gulat says:

    OMG !!!! THAT WAS EPIC !!!! And the fella ain’t bad either ! LOLOL

  47. Amanda says:

    that was awesome… My boyfriend watched it with me. He wanted to say that you all are a team just like us LOL He swears that he would pick the same way the Fella did and that I would be telling to hurry up and pick someone randomly… Just another reason to love your blog!!

  48. Cassie says:

    you know.. the vertical video thing is becoming a thing :(
    The fella would be bigger if it were sideways.. and no black stuff on the sides.
    Video is AWESOME otherwise

    • Karen says:

      Cassie – It’s because I just taped it on my iPhone and to make the iPhone have regular video you have to hold it sideways, which seems backwards to me, so I never think to do it. It just seems more natural to hold it vertically and then you end up with a vertical video. :/ ~ karen

  49. Carla Barnes says:

    OMG. Karen, you are one blessed girl. Great video – love your fella. Thanks for sharing!

  50. Shannon V. says:

    OMG…you two are too funny!
