Gishwhes Hall of Fame 2017

Welcome to the world’s weirdest, wildest, most beautiful and strange images and videos from the
Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen!

The submissions below were selected by Fegvepians, Misha and the Judges to be the best of the best of Gishwhes 2017. Enjoy exploring the weirdness! Browse through them, or click on an item number to see the top submissions.

Item 156: Sure, Misha & HRH Queen Elizabeth II had a rocky year in 2016 with their “Brexit Breakup”, but despite a brief conscious uncoupling, theirs is a love that stands the test of time. Prove it by showing us Egyptian hieroglyphics, Greek urns, or other recently-unearthed archaeological finds that prove theirs is a love that has lasted through the ages. If you’re choosing to do a hieroglyphic, you may NOT permanently deface any stone - use chalk!

Team Gnomad

Comment: Translation ~ 'Mishy, I love you so much that I created an IMDB account just to give Stonehenge Apocalypse a Five Star rating' 'Queeny, I love you so much I would wear nothing but dog treats to make your corgis smile'

Item 98: A marionette show featuring a puppet of Trump being controlled by a Putin lookalike. Quintuple BONUS POINTS if Putin himself is the puppeteer.

Item 208: As you know, no one was able to successfully find Jared Padalecki or Jensen Ackles' balls in Canada. Misha's balls are a lot easier to find... maybe because they really get around. Find Misha's balls in any of the following locations & take a picture with them. Then put them back EXACTLY where you found them so another team can have a chance to get their hands on Misha's balls, too. LOCATIONS: near the Cathedral Basilica, Newark, NJ; outside Gatorland, Orlando, FL, near Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas.

Team HocusPocus

Comment: So we found TWO sets of Misha's balls. They really do get around! In Houston, I ran into another team who was handling them as I was searching around. Thanks, Team Gnomad for the company and good wishes! And thanks Team Hocus Pocus for being one of the best teams around! - Christine H.

Item 3: Pancake art has come a long way, and the art form doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Let’s see pancake art of Guernica, Judith Slaying Holofernes, The Weeping Woman, anything by Hieronymus Bosch., or another famous work. (You may not do the Mona Lisa or anything abstract.)

Team Gabe'sSnorkits

Comment: Picasso Pancake! This was SO NERVE WRACKING to flip! Oh my goodness. It started to stick in the middle and I wasn't sure it would make it. I can't wait to make more pancake art. :) - Mary Davis

Item 60: (Up to 30 seconds - you may speed up or slow down the video if you need to.) Using only air-moving devices or machines, successfully navigate a balloon through a strange series of obstacles. It must be suspended in the air, without anyone or anything other than moving air touching it. It must travel at least 10 yards and culminate with your friend popping it with a needle sticking out from a hat they’re wearing.
