    Hey, we're not done yet... EASTER< HERE WE COME!!! Fingers crossed that we can can close up shop before Fat Tuesday, haha. To that end, I should be able to make it back home today for a minute to work on some of the final bits for y'all, and I'm going to try my dangest to remember to shoot some more footage of Mr. Furrness while I'm at it.

    Thanks again for the kind words and understanding, my imaginary friends!

    ALSO ----- I'm so happy that you good peoples have enjoyed the prolonged festivities so far. Like a good parent says to their chubby progeny, there's just more to love!

    One thing I've been able to work on while camped out here at Mi Madre's pad is slowly fixing a massive amount of glitches that have amassed in our heavily edited first post. You may have noticed that the going's on from STAGE 1 have been temporarily removed. The content should be back in place soon, but one of the reasons for taking those bits down is the site's limit on the number of videos that you can embed in a single post. The plus side of that limititation is that I now have an excuse to jam an Aminal Pr0n recap here in the weeds!

    We begin with some genuine, Attenborough-worthy footage of a burd making decisions on the fly:

    GROUP 1
    How many times will Nikki say, "What?", in response to Boon saying, "What?", before she tires of the game and screeches WAY too loud for a critter her size?
    [​IMG]
    (A) 1 - 2x
    (B) 3 - 4x
    (C) 5 - 6x
    (D) None of the above, "Eat a mint and talk to me later. OH, I see a bug! "

    NIKKI With The ANSWER :


    GROUP 2
    What is Nikki's favorite Twilight Zone episode?
    [​IMG]
    (A) It's a Good Life
    (B) Perchance to Dream
    (C) The Masks
    (D) None of the above, "The Outer Limits is far superior."

    NIKKI With The ANSWER :


    GROUP 3
    How long will it take for Nikki to chew up a picture of Boon's ex-ladyfriend?
    [​IMG]
    (A) 0 - 10 sec.
    (B) 11 - 20 sec.
    (C) 21 - 30 sec
    (D) None of the above, "Get that ugly thing away from me!"

    NIKKI With The ANSWER :


    GROUP 4
    What is Nikki's favorite superhero team?
    [​IMG]
    (A) Doom Patrol
    (B) X-Men
    (C) Pet Avengers
    (D) None of the above, "Comic books are for children."

    NIKKI With The ANSWER :

    Note that this time the post is SPOILER FREE, just in case you forgot what she decided those many weeks ago and wanted to enjoy the exquisite suspense of watching her mind at work. :)

    Back in a sec with some dumb cat.

    [​IMG]
    (A) Some hesitation, but then off into the day we go.
    (B) One look outside and then immediately to the basement.
    (C) A long stare at me that clearly says, "You're an idiot and the weather is all your fault."
    (D) None of the above , "I'm not even leaving the apartment, you fool!"


    MR. PIBB With The ANSWER :


    ÜBERGROOPEN BETA:
    Which of the following does Pibbs find to be the most compellingly delicious?
    [​IMG]

    I apologize if my posting gets anyone excited (the Bonuses post will come from @toothaction ) but I was just informed by @BleedingEdges that the wrong Toy ID was by his name. I have corrected this in the following, but when everyone can, please take a moment to look and check that yours are correct thus far.

    Some BONUS FUNSIES, while we wait - The first and probably only side-game of the festivities:

    A Quickie with the Ladies of American House:
    26 Hours and 26 Letters


    I've gotten to know a number of the folks that live in the same building as my mom pretty well over the years, but I've never spent such an intensive period of time with them as I have over the past few weeks. Share enough meals together, and you tend to move past idle chat of the state of the weather or the various qualities of the institutional meal that's sitting in front of you. Eventually, one hopes, you get to the REAL! Imagine my surprise when I mentioned that I was helping to run a little toy giveaway on a message board I haunt, and Ann, one of the regulars at our table, asked me if any of us online were into kayjoo sogfoobee. I could hardly get a word in before Rosemary piped up asking if the Gargamel crew were still at at. I raised my finger and began to speak, but quickly gave the floor to Jackie, who very much wanted to let us all know that, although she loved the sculpting style of Kyoka, she was always more drawn to his work on characters that others had created, citing a specific fondness for early Misty Fog. She also intimated that a young buck going by Paul Kaiju had given her quite the education a good thirty years back, provoking a round of knowing laughter from all of the ladies in attendance.

    Anyway, one thing led to another, and I was finally able to tell them all about Skullbrain, and the fabulous tradition that my friend Boon had started up over there, when Rosemary gave me a wry smile and told me that she thought I was in for a nice surprise come supper time. Intrigued, I thanked her in advance and went off to take care of some errands for my mom, absent that day on acounta her recent surgery.

    Can you even imagine my shock and delight when, back in the dining room a few hours later, Rosemary greeted me by holding up a jam sketch that the Gargamel gang had done for her on the back of an old header card? "They used the hanger holes for the eyes!" she exclaimed with appreciation and pride.
    [​IMG]
    Not to be outdone, Ann quickly produced a screen print depicting the ferocious origins of the Alter Beast! "Isn't it Altar Beast?" asked Jackie. Ann wasn't sure, said she thought it varied from release to release, but the important thing for us to realize is that, "Mark Rudolph is a GENIUS cartoonist!"
    [​IMG]
    Jackie then gave a shy ahem, and when all of our eyes were properly fixed upon her preceded to slowly reveal a little sketch in Sharpie from under the table. "Le Merde! How Funny is that? It's funny because it's intentionally bad French!" Le, haha! Le!" We all laughed in agreement, and set about telling each other toy stories for the rest of the thoroughly enjoyable meal.
    [​IMG]
    I learned so much that day, too much to recount here, but I have to let you know what a pleasure it was to discover that both Ann and Jackie had received their sketches directly from the artists at SDCC 2008, but that neither of them had known each other in those days, only meeting here, years later, at American House. What a fun coincidence, right?

    The upshot of all of this, as they let me know immediately after the show and tell, is that they wanted to be part of the raffle too, and asked me to offer the one-of-a-kinds up to you good people. I told them of our guessing games here, and it was Jackie's idea to base this one around their favorite letters. "Building blocks, that's what they are. Civilizations are BUILT on language, and you have to start with those funny little squiggles in a row." Who was I to argue?

    ANYWAY, I am now in possession of the secret knowledge of their favorite letters, and we'll use that here to play our game.

    With so few paper goods to go around, me and the Booner will be sitting this one out. The rest of you will be allowed to vie for your favorite of the above three rectangles. One guess per player. Make sense? All you have to do is type out the name of the lady who's treasured artifact you desire, and follow that up with a dash and what you believe to be their favorite letter of the alphabet that I've been typing in this whole time. Should look just about like this...

    Rosemary - Q

    ...but, you know, with your choice!

    The game will remain open for 26 or so hours, one for each letter, so choose quickly and wisely!

    As always, no need to throw your hat in the ring if you're not interested in what the ring can bring.

    PM with any questions, otherwise I'll see you tomorrow around 3 PM EST. Battles, if they arise, will be determined and settled by the whim of the ladies.

    Cheers and good luck!


    *In actuality the above paper pretties were donated by the fellow known as @kichigai , but I'm sure that you won't mind rolling with my conceit.

    THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG...

    26 letters, 26 hours, and three lucky parchment enthusiasts to be named later.

    Thanks to some good news on the mommie front, though, tabulations and presentations will have to wait until tonight. Now? We're headed to rehab!!!

    Results, or something like it, in just a few hours.

    Glad your mum is doing OK mate. This years raffle has been a rollercoaster, a lovely cast of critters and equally adorable human folk. Top stuff.
