GISH Hall of Fame 2020 April Mini Hunt

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

The submissions below were selected by HARSHers, Misha and the Judges to be the best of the best of GISH 2020 April Mini Hunt. Enjoy exploring the weirdness! Browse through them, or click on an item number to see the top submissions.

Item 13: Remember Tom Hanks in "Castaway"? Remember Wilson the volleyball? Well, we're all going through something similar now. We're alone and WE ARE LOSING OUR MINDS. We've started talking to household objects. We've started dressing them up and giving them names. Show us your new quarantine friend.

Item 22: Use household items (books, boxes, kitchen utensils, anything...) to create one of the natural or man-made wonders of the world and take a selfie in front of it as if you're a tourist. Feel free to use forced perspective to speak to its majestic grandeur.

Comment: He never even saw the shark behind him! By Jennie Lannette.

Item 51: A lot of LGBTQ+ people are sheltering-in-place with people who don't accept them as they are, which makes an already difficult situation even more isolating. Show them that though they are physically isolated right now, they are not alone: post a photo of yourself holding up a sign with a message of support which also includes contact numbers to organizations for support in case they need help. Submit the photo with a link to your social media post tagged #LGBeTogether and #GISH.

Comment: Link to social media: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10222435603261607&set=a.1142049154135&type=3&theater This is the message I would want to hear myself.

Item 15: While so many of us are stuck at home, we might as well use our newfound time at home to work on ourselves and develop new skills to keep us marketable in an uncertain economy. With this in mind, learn to balance something on your chin for 20 seconds - a yardstick, a broom, a piece of a towel rack... or even something longer. Impress us! (Hint: Longer things are usually easier to balance. Don't break any windows.)

Comment: I'm sorry it's in portrait mode. I had to do it to get the whole rake. In case you can't see the rake reads: GiSH

Comment: My 9 yr old daughter interviewed (and drew a portrait of) a wonderful 95 year old woman from our church community who lives in a residential care facility, who she's never gotten to talk to before. It was a lovely conversation!
