    What do you get when you mix muchas deals, saving money, and Facebook and Twitter? A great reason to use your favorite social networks at work today!

    We are working hard this week to bring you 12 full hours packed with some of the best deals around. What brought on this crazy onslaught of money saving binging? We just love deals!

    Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages all day on Thursday, June 16th between 7am through 7pm PDT to see our continuous thread of deals. These deals can sell out very quickly so check back frequently to snag yourself one!

    Haven’t added us on Facebook? Haven’t been following us on Twitter?

    If you are one of those rare few that like to stay away from awesome things like Facebook or Twitter then Tanga has your back, too. Check the blog throughout the day on Thursday to be able to keep up with all of the awesome deals. Check back often because a lot of the best deals have a limited supply!

    May's Sizzlin' Summer Giveaway's Winner Announced!

    Congratulations to our big winner of the May’s Sizzlin’ Summer Giveaway Linda H.from Belfast, ME!

    She will be receiving the grand prize of a propane grill valued at $350 as well as six delicious, very non-vegetarian steaks.

    We asked Linda a few questions and here is what she replied:

    1. What would you like to say to all of those faithful vegetarians out there now that you have won a meat grilling machine and some juicy steaks?
    “You don’t know what you’re missing! And if you do…eat your heart out…I’ll be eating steak!”

    2. Please describe in full, embarrassing detail what your “Happy Tanga Dance” looks like:
    2. Something like the Funky Chicken crossed with the Robot, but with a Macarena flair!

    3. Are you going to eat your steaks as soon as you get them or are you planning a special party and inviting all of the Tanga Staff to celebrate?
    3. Sorry, guys, you’re too far away…it will be a private party for family—with all-you-can-eat steak!

    4. Aside from the fact that we just gave you a bunch of cool prizes, why do you love Tanga?
    4. Cool stuff and saving money are two of my favorite things!

    5. Do you have any special grilling recipes the entire Tanga community should know about?
    5. Sorry, the family secret recipes are under lock and key…

    We want to thank everyone that entered and to also remind them that even though they didn’t win the grill, we have a current contest for the month of June!

    Plug Your Puzzles

    Hey, puzzle makers, here’s a chance to get some more eyes on your very best (and friendliest) creations!
    We are using facebook and twitter to steer unsuspecting souls in the direction of Daily Fun and we would like to include links to specific puzzles.

    Here is what we would like you guys to do:

    Look through your published puzzles and find candidates from among your best. What makes a good candidate?
    Not too hard! We don’t want to scare people away with hard puzzles. Let’s stick with cryptopix and OWW’s with difficulty ratings of two or under. Puzzles that look snazzy are nice too.

    We’ll pick some of our favorite plugs and make you even more famous!

    ADDENDUM 6/6/2011

    Post your plugs below. Plug followed by the url of your puzzle.

    And don’t forget the plug! Remember, your clever plugs are what will make people go see your puzzles!

    Here’s an example:
    This little puzzle is like a mental after dinner mint! http://www.tanga.com/puzzles/6001-3-15-2010

    Murdoctor, can you see what else changed?

    Puzzlethon Details! Starts 5/21 - 5/22!

    Have you read Arnott’s post? You can read it here.

    We know a lot of our regular users don’t have actual lives outside of Tanga so we thought we would tempt more people into that category. Forget date night, forget bowling or a romantic dinner and come join your true friends and family here at Tanga for May’s 24-hour Puzzlethon!

    What the heck is a Puzzlethon you ask? It is 24 solid hours of OWW puzzles. If you complete them ALL within the 24 hour timeframe, you will be entered into a drawing for the holy grail of all prizes!

    When is it? The Puzzlethon starts Saturday, May 21st at 7pm PDT and does not end till 7pm PDT the following day, Sunday, May 22nd.

    Tell them what they will be entered to win, maestro!

    Been earning Tanga Points for so long they’re starting to pile up and crowd out your other possessions?

    No problem! When you complete all of the puzzles, your name will entered into a drawing to win the Puzzlethon, where ONE lucky Tanganite will win a limited edition leatherette Tanga Point storage/organization satchel!

    Here’s Maude Hendersonton, who was the first Tanganite to win a TPS/OS:

    “You know, it’s not like the TP’s were getting me down or anything. In fact, I wasn’t really aware of how they were starting to dominate my surroundings. My husband used to make comments once in a while.”

    “When are you going to do something with these damn things? They’re everywhere!”

    “Honey, I won them all! You should be proud of me! Besides, if I get 300,000 more I’ll be a toaster!”

    “Earth to Maude, we already have a toaster. Works fine. Used it just this morning.”

    “You weren’t listening! I’m gonna BE a toaster!”

    “Now that I have the TPS/OS I can keep all of my TP’s in one place without upsetting my husband. It has compartments for my laptop and anything else I need to keep protected! Plus with the convenient leather strap I can carry my TP’s and laptop wherever I go!”

    Hey Tanga, It’s Almost Time to LOL

    Dearest Tanganites,

    One of the most popular parts of Tanga is our daily T-Shirt. And, with our here-today-gone-tomorrow approach, our shirts come and go at light speed.

    In fact, one of the most common questions we get goes something like this: Hey, a while back you had that really funny shirt, can I still get it? Also, are three stewed prunes too many or two stewed prunes too few?

    The Shirts Are Rising Up to Take Over the World!

    Tanga proudly introduces the newest member of the Tanga family – LOLShirts.com!

    LOLShirts will feature the funniest shirts we can come up with. Or if you’re funny and you send us an idea or two, it might feature the funniest shirts YOU can come up with!

    Coming Soon. Very Soon. Get in the Hula Hoop.

    We know that you’ll want to be part of this historic launch. Okay, so it’s not like the space shuttle or anything, but it’s a special launch to us.

    We’re putting the finishing touches on the site, but you might want to stay in the loop. Or the hula-hoop, which seems like a funner thing to get in and stay in.

    You can do that by signing up for LOLShirts’ newsletter right there on http://www.lolshirts.com. We’ll send you an almost-handwritten email letting you know when it opens.

    - The Tanga, errr, LOLShirts Team

    Here is what she said:

    I sure hope I’m not dreaming, so I guess I better pinch myself!!

    2. Describe in full detail your “Happy Tanga Dance
    I am sooo excited, but I suppose it should be a super “Happy Tanga Jump” since that’s what we’ll be doing on our new trampoline! The very best part of winning this is that my son’s birthday is June 10th. I really wanted to win it so I could give it to him for his birthday. Now I can! He’ll be doing the biggest happy dance ever, thanks to Tanga!!

    3. After you put your trampoline together, what is the first thing you are going to do with it?
    Hello!! – Jump!! I’m sure my kids will beat me to it first, so I’ll be sure to pull out the camera and take lots of pictures!

    4. Do you have any final words for all those Tanganites that didn’t win this month’s giveaway?
    Oh my goodness – don’t give up!! Keep entering because it could be you next month. I honestly never thought I could win, but I did!!!

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039169/

    Last week, actually. In my Letterboxing logbook.

    Just old enough, and just young enough.

    Chili Pepper :)

    22. Pop, Soda, or Coke?
    Soda

    23. How many hours a day do you spend on Tanga in a week’s time?
    On average… around three.

    24. Who is your archenemy?
    No one. But I’m sure there are people out there who have made me their archenemy. I have a… “strong” personality.

    25. What is the one thing you can’t live without?
    Companionship. I could never live somewhere remote. I’m a total city boy.

    And...we're back!

    Well, hello there. We’re Tanga and we missed you.

    After being gone down due to a service outage (https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150157847141699), it feels good to be back. Kinda like coming home to your nice soft blankie after being away on the road for awhile.

    You should know that the downtime was not a complete waste. It gave us a chance to review and subsequently implement policies and protocols that should help us prevent and/or reduce this type of outage in the future.

    Easter Egg Hunt Extended

    You’ve been asking about the Easter Egg Hunt (http://www.tanga.com/forum/blogs/tangas-easter-egg-hunt-is-on-chance-to-win-a-sonicare-toothbrush). Yes, we are going to extend it through Sunday night. So get out there and find those eggs!

    Products We Missed?

    You’ve also asked us if you missed any products. Well, the short answer is if we can still get them for you as great deals, you’ll see them on Tanga soon. In the meantime, we’re excited about the batch of deals we have going on right now and coming this next week.

    Thanks. We Mean It.

    Thanks for your patience during this outage. We’re admittedly catching up a little bit (on sleep especially for Tanga Joe) and we greatly appreciate your business. As Jerry Maguire said: You. Complete. Us.


Well There, Hello Again!
