So you may be aware that the Solid Saints auction took place recently in aid of Child's Play. Well, @ceres
came up with a wonderful* idea for a pool auction: she asked various forumers to put themselves to the task of an eating competition. We collaborated to create a 'menu', with various intervals for amount raised incurring additional tasks. Ultimately we raised enough for two tiers: tier one was 2 lbs. of french fries, tier two was 50 chicken nuggets.
The gauntlet was laid. Smack was talked. And then stomachs were assaulted.
I'll let the others post their videos, but here are mine:
Challenge 1: French Fries
This video is awful, and not just because it's some dude stuffing his face. I screwed up in pretty much every way conceivable - from accidentally turning off my camera and missing the first three minutes of my attempt, to terrible framing, to.. well the fact that I just plain (spoilers!) failed at the challenge when I threw up. Huzzah!
Challenge 2: Chicken Nuggets.
I was very confident about this, even in the wake of my previous failure. But though I worked out the technical issues from the first video, it was still ultimately (spoilerth!
) a failure. I thought I had a pretty good pace going on early, though! And this time you could actually see
So yeah. I got to make myself look even more dumb than usual for charity. A fair enough tradeoff, I suppose.
*it seemed slightly less wonderful
when it actually came time to perform the challenges.
