Entry #107

Hawk Yer Goodies
by Whirlochre


Calling all squirrels, all mice! Oyez oyez oyez!

Come on down now for the bumper bonanza discount New Year nut and cheese sale over at the Big Ole Oak Tree Hypermarket.

We've got hampers of hazelnuts for just two dollars fifty, and huge tubs of Wensleydale with Cranberries for an amazing twenty cents — all guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any serious bargain-lover.

And why not feast your whiskers on our 2-for-1 bottles of pure mountain spring water? First hundred comers get entered into a free prize draw worth thousands and thousands of dollars. There's a luxury car to be won, a cruise down the Nile, big bucks. And for the kiddies, a free toy just for entering the store!

It's fun for all the family at the Big Ole Oak Tree Hypermarket.

Open now for everything you need. And much much more.

Food! Prizes! Fun!

So don't miss out, get along there right away and net yourself a bargain.

(cough cough)
