Item 159: Who said you couldn't Hunt while in hospital? Certainly not any of us! Show off your large-scale cartoon skills by writing the longest poem (or drawing the largest mural) you can, all about the adventures of a virus caught in a hospital, on a scroll made from a roll of exam table paper.

I FORCE MY WAY OUT INTO THE AIR OF THE ROOM AND THE NURSE WITH THE MASK HAS STARTED TO SNOOZE HER MASK ONLY COVERS ONE HALF OF HER FACE SHE RUBS HER EYE GENTLY AND I’M BACK IN THE RACE! SUDDENLY A DOCTOR! WALTZES INTO THE ROOM HE HAS A SMALL NEEDLE AND I KNOW THAT I’M DOOMED! MISS NURSE USES SOAP AND ALL KINDS OF TISSUES SHE KEEPS HER HANDS CLEAN SO LONG, I WILL MISS YOU! THE KIDS GET THEIR SHOTS THE NURSE GETS HER REST THE HANDLES GET WIPED THIS HAS TURNED INTO A MESS!

Item 51: Anyone who serves in the military is risking their life to serve their nation. Being respectful to not trespass on military grounds, stand in front of a large military craft, ship, tank, or plane with an inclusive sign of thanks to every service member of every kind. You may post this image on social media prior to the end of the hunt, if you choose. Submit the image with a link to your post in the comment section (if you chose to post it).

Item 123: As all gishers know, Saturday, August 12 is “Meet Another Gisher Day.” Meet up in front of the largest art museum in your town at 10:00 AM (of whatever timezone you’re in). It’s a pot-luck coleslaw brunch this year, so bring your favorite family recipe of coleslaw… and as much sidewalk chalk as you can. After brunch, decorate the pavement with a collaborative message to the world. In order for a meet-up to count you need to have representatives of at least 5 teams present, so this will require some organizing. Gishwhes is all about coming together, so teams may collaborate (gasp!) on this one, but your team’s image or video must still be all your own.

Item 9: I can assure you, THAT has never been frozen in jello before! How did you manage to do that?!

Team FirebugsLovesGayFishLovesMemeSquadLovesTheSlimeLlamas

Comment: This jello pond was made by Suzan and Bregje. After all attempts to get the jello out of the tub failed, the centrifugal force created by spinning the tub around very fast finally seemed to be able to do the trick.



Item 163: This Hunt’s must-have fashion trend: an aquarium hat with live fish. The aquarium hat must not endanger the live fish in any way.
