You'll be forgiven for not remembering this contest, since it was held a week ago!
Here's the photo that asked the question: what is it?
The results for this contest were delayed cause I was out of the office on Monday and
by Tuesday I was knee-deep in backed up email from being out of the office for three days straight (on Thursday and Friday for ThrillerFest-which was a lot of fun!)
Herewith, at long last, the results!
Uh-oh... Who stole Panda-In-Chief's snugglies? Someone's gonna get in trou-ble!
Kitty sent us to Google translate!

3D puzzle of that building...
It looks like a 3D puzzle here for sure. It's actually a length of card stock paper, cut to show the skyline of NYC. Normally it's on my window but the window cleaner moved it and didn't put it back.
A cuddly tarantula with poor circulation.
I spy bear-ly visible spider cozies on them there feet!
All in all, I think
those two tacks in the wall.

It's literally in “this photo”. Rearrange letters to “hip to shot”, meaning he brought whiskey and two glasses. A good drinking partner is a gift.
A spider friend had chilly feet
and lamented to a shark.
A client heard the spider's woe
and it tugged upon their heart.
While whiskey warms the belly
it does nothing for the toes.
The client knew that panda socks
were the only way to go.
(Over the 25 word limit, but the socks were too inspiring. Please forgive me, your sharkliness.)
It was bad enough being the only furry octopus in existence, but having to wear hand-knitted panda socks in public was mortifying.
Dum, dum, da, dum...Spider is getting married!! See the garter? To throw at the reception! Socks? Destination wedding, China. Floppy butt thing? Spider veil.

You all think this is cute. It's not cute. You try navigating a tower of books with two legs crammed into one sock. I demand four more socks!
The Seasick Mermaid
Socktapus in the wild.
Panda In Chief
This makes me want to find a little stuffed shark for Janet and dress it in a panda costume.

Why on earth would your client give you ten copies of the same book? Didn't they know that you can reread a book over and over? Good for the environment.
I wouldn't want to play poker with it.
He's got 4 of a kind showing, waiting on the river card.
My spidey sense is tingling.
Well, NONE of you got it exactly right. You got the socks part. And of course, the spoctopus is wearing them here, but the sox are intended for chairs.
Yes, chair sox.
I about fell over when I heard that. Who puts sox on chairs? Well, whynot?
(It's a Japanese thing, these sox came in Japanese packaging.)
But, even though none of the guesses were exactly right, the entries were hilarious.
For the first time in forever, no winner.
Unless you think I missed something! Weigh in in the comments section.
