It’s contest time at the super-fun “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace for fame, fortune and fabulous prizes. The Gazillionaire, who’s been known to flash his naughty bits during the adult circus, didn’t want to pay for a designer, so Penny Pibbets is asking her fans to design a T-shirt for “Absinthe” merch.

Transiiiiiiiiiiiiition. (If you don’t get this, you have to see the show.)

Artists have free reign in the Design-a-Penny T-shirt Contest, but the design should have a maximum of four colors. So, red, white, blue, and black are fine, but red, white, blue, black and fuchsia are not (that’s five colors, not four).

The winner receives four VIP tickets to “Absinthe” (with drinks), a two-night stay in Las Vegas, four T-shirts with the winning design and a handmade sock puppet by Penny (value: priceless).

The deadline for submissions is April 14, 2012, and entries should be emailed to [email protected] Go to for source material.

Humor is strongly encouraged, and the prizes are all paid by Penny herself, so they are subject to change. Except for the sock puppet; that’s pretty much guaranteed.

Meantime, high-wire heiress Lijana Wallenda-Hernandez has joined “Absinthe” through May 1. Wallenda is a seventh-generation member of the world-renowned circus family the Flying Wallendas and the great granddaughter of Karl Wallenda. Wallenda will take to the sky with the Esteemed Gentlemen of the High Wire, filling in for husband Tony Hernandez.
