As always, the deadline is nominally Saturday at midnight Eastern, unless I’m still knocked out from the turkey.

Go!

The Firebirds try to pack one of their members into the crate so she won’t be noticed while working on the robot until the competition. When FIRST saw this security camera picture, team 433 was DQ’d for the year. The reason given was something about the intent of ship day being to make all teams stop working and rest before competition season. A team spokesman later said that the initial tests were sucessful, but eventually the team member experienced difficulty in escaping the capsule and returning it to an apparently untouched state, as shown here.

There you have it folks, it’s now a proven fact the nerds are not born, they are hatched…

Said to the FFP (FIRST Fashion Police): Go ahead, take your best swing, it’ll just bounce off. Like it or not, this is how I roll.

Karen? Man, I wanted candy.

This pinata wasn’t broken with conventional sticks - that would be way too dangerous. They covered the shell with green lights and let the Aim High robots shoot poofs at it.
Instead of candy, it was filled with safety glasses.

“C’mon little rookie, don’t be afraid, put on these safety glasses…
***AND WACKK AS HARD AS YOU CANNN!!!***”

//no rookies were harmed in the making of this post.

What a Good Egg.

Here we see Karen finally coming out of her shell

F.I.R.S.T android spawn…be afraid, be VERY afraid :eek:

Ultimately, the Firebirds’ attempts to simulate the giant shrinking latex rubber Martian Spheres of Evil from the 2007 IRI Talent Show fell well short of expectations. All they truly learned is that papier mache is not exactly the best medium for instilling terror in torture subjects… Unless the subject was previously a victim of a Martian Sphere, that is…

I could go on with this, tying this caption into 433’s attempts to abduct the reluctant participants in the initial Evil Sphere program and subject them to their devious pasty newsprint machinations, but I won’t, because I know how freaked out certain participants were by their IRI Evil Sphere encounter, and I wouldn’t want to rekindle their nightmares…:smiley:

Ouch, Barry. That hurts. I’m gonna go hide in my little pinata shell again and cry.

(not an entrant, just the picture)

Sarah Karanigan is here to take over the world, with its army of bots.

“Stop moving Karen, we only have a couple of hours before they reveal the game and I have not even painted you yellow. Remember, stop gigging or Dave will hear you during his introduction. “
:]

[NPOE] Beat me to it[/NPOE]

…and you thought we recruited new members? Bwahahaha…

“That has got to be the largest packing peanut I’ve ever seen.”

And here you see evidence of the prototype of the largest popcorn ball yet to be consumed. And yet someone has failed to realize it is but a paper mache prototype. Will these abuses of freshmen never end?

I was wondering whether this week’s contest would be all it’s cracked up to be.

Now only if Bill’s room get cleaned before the finals, it will be a miracle.
