Hi Blondbraid, you look a bit upset there about the name hehe?

Well to be honest the name choice was partly a random thought, based on a movie a saw a few months back called Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), where one of the characters brings a goose around with him everywhere, the gooses name was Gertrude. But yes I don't know why but it has something amusing about it, and it is the last  name I would expect an inflatable doll to be called.  If you wish you can rename her, I don't think frank will mind :)

Also great entry there, and great entries from everyone so far

I'm not upset as much as I'm curios, since I saw that name as a punchline in the 1959 movie, and the Blackadder tv show, and in the Penny Arcade video game.
I guess part of it is since I'm not a native English speaker myself, and part since my own name is similar but spelled differently.

Besides, isn't Barbara the name usually associated withe the dolls?  :)

Heya Blondbraid, I really have no idea why there is associations with that name, perhaps it has had some significance in comedy history or  is just random, either way I wish I could tell you.   I changed the name to Hilda on the risk of there being many Hilda's on the forum heh.
Best of luck to everyone in the contest too !

We are reaching the end of this contest so hurry up and post more great entries!! :D

Introducing Lucile!

Look out boys! This pearl is a single, savvy (& slippery), seductress from the south. Lucile enjoys decapitating blue whales and walks on the beach.

Let's hope Frank doesn't mind crabs! (Perhaps he can finally put those assorted soaps to good use).

This is Ruffa a female bear that work in a circus, after a show she fall in love with Frank for some strange reason, seem that he like her too. She doesn't care about him being boring beacause she is a bear. Eating and sleeping are her best hoobies.

Has Frank finally met his perfect man? Or will he be cooked and eaten like he was at a game over in a Sierra game?


Nah, Kevyn and Levyn the Ettin are a nice guy, really. Barely eats any humans. Half the time, anyway. He's of two minds about it. Can Frank satisfy this ogre's desire for polyamory? This double date might prove to be more than Frank can handle!

There are those who believe that life here began out there...

I really hate voting on creative things people have made, they are all great in their own way,..  but since I entered I feel obliged to , and its all a bit of fun anyway, so here is my choice.

No.1  Ruffa ... Heads will turn.
No.2  Princess Anna Organa.  The desk might come in handy.
No.3  Jim's Entry, because she's not only once,.... not even twice,..... but three times a lady.

Well done to everyone, keep up the great work
