Someone said that you're not famous until your head is on a Pez dispenser. I guess you're not internet famous until your head is on a dancing elf.

Yeah, my brother sent this to me last week in an email that said "Never let anyone take your picture at work!"

Gosh, that licensing agreement is pretty broad. You pretty much give away rights to OfficeMax to use your image in any way, whatsoever.

Gosh I wish I had now read the licensing agreement.

Holy crap, a post from quonsar!

Ahahahahaha. I sense a great disturbance in the force, as though millions of tons of force were being employed in an attempt to restrain a certain finger from clicking a certain button labeled "banhammer".

Frick. I just scored ~1.6 million points...some sort of bug or something. The BB gets stuck on the fence if you shoot just right the tree at 12 o'clock.

That would be 100% better if we could control the elf. Do the shuffle, mathowie!

Yeah, I did that too. My score was about 3,000,000 with 421 bounces.

has anyone been able to make ralphie shoot his eye out?
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 5:07 PM on December 17, 2006


You can hit him in the eye but he just says something like "Wow, I totally did not expect that to happen!" and then continues to shoot. The score at the end lets you know how many accidents you have had.

Is Quonsar gonna go back to baiting Matt? Or is this a declaration of love and brotherhood? I am so confused.

What's really awesome (or something) is that now that I did one with your picture, the original link I made to the one with my picture goes to the one with your picture also. (If that makes sense - at least when I click the one I posted up above, I now get your smirking mug as well).

I guess the same thing happened to wendell when he made two in a row with his and quonsar's face.

I also guess it's just a matter of time before someone does one to replace all the prior versions they had linked to, and goatse's the whole lot of them. Of course, I wouldn't stoop that low.

It contains the potential to be charming I suppose... however I do not like the way it stands there at the end of its dance, hands on hips, swaying back and fourth as if I were some holiday Humbert Humbert, inviting me to take it back to my motel room for Cold Duck and a round of slap and tickle. Someone please make sure it doesn't leave while I go and load my blunderbuss.

Sweet. Though the elf's "hold-yr-ankle-whilst-kicking-yr-knee-forward-n-back" dance was pretty poor. Does that move have a name?

grapefruitmoon: "Someone said that you're not famous until your head is on a Pez dispenser."

That's silly. I know it was true when I was collecting Pez and Pez trivia back in high school and college, but I haven't yet seen anything that would contradict it since: There's only been three Pez dispensers ever made that depicted a real person: Betsy Ross, Paul Revere, and Davey Crockett. Those are the only three famous people?

If that was a serious question, in these parts it's known only as "The Lobster".

Shooting game is fun.

My best so far is 8,915,638, with 320 bounces.
posted by bwg at 4:24 PM on December 18, 2006


Holy crap, I managed to loop the scoring mechanism three times, ending at 29,449,660 and 668 bounces.

If you find a sweet spot and just keep hitting it, the ricochets can go on for a long time.
posted by bwg at 6:24 PM on December 18, 2006


There is a spot in the upper right area between two trees where you see a small dark blob through the fence. Click on that blob and it will do the thing where it rapidly bounces through the fence. Every single time. Silly but amusing for a few minutes.

I had over 3,000 bounces when I figured that out.

Thanks, internet!Hannah! It's a good name for it; I like to imagine a thick blue rubber band holding my hand to my ankle. Also I am underwater.
