No more radio silence! I’ve been a bit busy, but I’m thrilled to see more GISHWHES coming our way. I’m a couple of tweets behind, I know, but want to get into the bread and butter. Other posts will be updated soon.
Tiffany, the person with the correct answer, has received her on page on GISHWHES site — as well as a not-so-shiny new (maybe) straight jacket.
And a cross-tweet by JL:
(I’d like to offer Tiffany my sincerest congratulations, and also wish her a very speedy recovery. That straight jacket looks terribly uncomfortable.)
But you guys. YOU GUYS. Look at this:
That link? Guess where it goes? Here! Well, the @MissJeanLouis post. I flailed. I did.
Okay. I’m done. On to the important part: the new challenge.
The challenge, listed at the end of Tiffany’s vaguely disturbing video, is to build a website explaining what GISHWHES is. I know how daunting that can be, but it’s not impossible. Necessity is the mother of invention.
The list, paraphrased, because I scribbled my notes:
You should include:
staff bios and pictures
colors and shapes
These are a no-no:
cruelty to animals
desecration of graves
mentioning scavenger hunts
aspartame (the stuff they put in diet soda)
images of one-term presidents
furry whiffle balls
You have until October 16th, Russian time. Links should be sent via email to JL.
