jquery contains method to look for a paragraph tag

Hi experts,

I have this fiddle

it looks like this:
In this fiddle i'm doing this:

// look for all elements using this class DivStyle1 and append the image to the one that contains this string Div 3
$('.DivStyle1:contains("Div 3")').append(img);  

That works fine.

How do i revise it, so it instead of looking for this string "Div 3"  I look for the <p> tag instead.

I tried this but it didn't see to work:

// look for all elements using this class DivStyle1 and append the image to the one that contains this tag <p>

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong?
