Lately, a lot of people have been teasing the Giz for packing too much juvenile machismo. Between the boob jokes and the trashing of pink Zunes, people are losing sight of what Giz is about. We love em, but we just don't take gadgets as seriously as some. To disprove the first point, and prove the second, we're holding FuzzyWuzzyModo, a cute pet/gadget photo contest.

You know we love em. Cellphones, cameras, MP3 players: They're like Pokemon for Nerds. Well, Pokemon is like Pokemon for Nerds. So maybe gadgets are more like Geek pets that don't die when you forget to feed them. Yeah. And what are puppies, really but hairy Sony Aibos that lick everything and eat their own poo?

Entries for the photo contest should have an adorable gadget and a cute pet in the photo.
Your inspiration should come from past posts, like the puppy monorail, the Macbook cat toy, and this disgusting photo here. (Not Goatse; nor iPhone) The winner is simply the one that makes us gush the most. See? We have feelings.

The prize is a 50 dollar gift certificate to Amazon, courtesy of Solano County Friends of Animals who rescue kitties from the gaping maws of evil gadgets like paper shredders.

The contest will be judged by you on Giz, but semi finalists will be chosen by Richard Baguley, writer, Englishman, and champion of both Pets and PCs everywhere. He'll pass the winners on to us, and after that, we'll put up a poll so you can vote on the final winner.

Post your photo on flickr or some other photo hosting service, and email the url to: petgadget@solanocountyfoa.org

The contest ends in 2 weeks.

And if you're feeling charitable, please donate a bit of change to the fuzzy creatures over at Solano County Friends of Animals.

You think it's smart not to have pets, but then you have a baby? Babies are like pets only

1) They crap themselves even when they feel fine

2) They're MUCH more expensive

3) Leaving them alone while you go to work (or a party) is a crime

4) They foul up gadgets (and furnature) even worse than pets do

5) 13 year old dogs like to sleep. 13 year old kids like to do everything you tell them not to do (and nothing that you tell them to do).

... (the list goes on)

Yeah, pet owners are the idiots. If someone breaks into your house, what's your precious baby going to do to defend you? (calm down, that's sarcasm) When's the last time that you heard 'My dog had a cold and now the whole damn house is deathly sick?' Now replace 'dog' with 'baby.' (I heard that twice this weekend alone)

I'm not saying that having kids is all bad (it may even prove useful to the propogation of the species), but pets are much less destructive (and expensive, and contagious) than kids are. Is having drool on your gadgets that much better than having hair on them? I would imagine that you don't know, because you don't let your baby get close enough to said gadgets to drool on them. Now guess how I keep my dogs from getting hair on my stuff... Closed doors, stuff put out of reach...

To each his own, but stating that you're somehow more intelligent than pet owners because you have a baby instead of a pet... Idiocy! I'm going to a going-away party tonight. You know why? Because my dogs can take care of themselves while I'm gone (they may even protect my house). Now I'm sure you're a nice enough guy, but I take offence to the fact that you think that you're somehow smarter than pet owners because you impregnated a woman instead of chosing to own a pet. Having a working meat missile doesn't make you a rocket scientist.
