UPDATE: Congratulations to Paul in Chicago for submitting the winning entry: “My Little Tapeworm!” Stay tuned for more Fun Factory giveaways!

Fun Factory left lil’ Felix behind at the office the other day. We’ve decided to adopt him out to one lucky reader. But we want him to go to a good home. And while Flexi Felix is a great name, we want to know what you’d name this lil’ guy, if he belonged to you.

How to Win Flexi Felix

2) On Friday, June 22nd we’ll pick our favorite submission and send Felix to his new home.
