Hail Gishfishes!

As of right now, we have 12 people on our team.  Do you know someone still looking for a team?  Are you a stranger roaming the Gishwhes tag desperate for new info about the grand prize or hoping against hope that Madam Jean-Louis will notice your magnificence?

We can’t help you with the latter, but if you’re still looking for a team to join, we might be able to help with that given the proper bribes gifts incentives if you ask nicely.  Send a message (bonus points given for inappropriate use of kelp) and join us!


CS Lewis once said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one!’” Take a picture capturing this exact moment. The two must have something very visually unique about them. The photo must be taken in a crowd of other people who do not share this unique quality. For example, both could be dressed as cavemen at a crowded train station.

(Two photos in one image.) “Hell and back.” In other words, we want to see a before and after photo of a GISHWHES 2013 participant. The first photo should depict the participant eagerly getting ready for the great, adventurous week ahead, and the second photo, what the participant looks like at the close of the hunt.

If Gishwhes were a moving or shipping company, what would its slogan be? Let’s see the slogan on the side of an 18-wheeler. Letters must be at least 3 feet in height. No illegal graffiti allowed! You must have permission from the owner of the truck and we must see the entire truck in the image. Feel free to decorate the rest of the truck as you deem appropriate.

Create a grammatically correct anagram sentence using the first names of each of the members of your team. The image must show both the first names of your team members and the sentence.
