We\’re really very sorry that we\’ve ended up taking so long to post a review and the final scores. Mayweek came and went, many of you left for home and then summer (and research of course) absorbed us all. In brief, here are some of the wonderful things we saw in the 2008 hunt.
Fingerpaintings of Angela Merkel (alas, missing) and Margaret Thatcher:
The finest ice sculpture:
A cruet the size, and shape, of a baseball bat and board games, one was giant and one was more, wtf?
A series of unfortunate events involving Sainsbury\’s and underpants, some fine pieces of cinema warning of the dangers of pavement cracks, feeling age beyond our years upon presentation of a gameboy and someone younger than it and discovering that one of the team had a member who was an identical twin:
A host of notes from worried mothers (some more sincere than others), a distinct lack of comb-and-paper movie themes but some excellent stop motion videos and Spielberg films made with toys, or both. Sadly the best entry by far, a stop motion version of Indiana Jones made with Lego is missing from our collection!
Various forms of bread, henge, jigsaws and not what we expected in a cheese guillotine:
Some fine hats, and some finer moustaches:
A frighteningly real reptiloid (although of course, they are real), the glove stretcher and ACTION Benjamin Harrison:
Then we have the precious artifacts of yore:
A strange book club, the sad times and the happy times:
Not enough cocktails but thankfully plenty of cold ones, all that gift wrapping, disproof of bees, the knots, admitting that you were a card-carrying tory, the few pimped out punts, all the gifts, the weapons against horrible creatures, the hundreds of pictures, lies, puns, arguments..
Some astonishing works of pacman who apparently got hungry:
\”And I watched *the whole thing*. And it was nauseating.\”
\”What on earth was that? Rick Astley, whilst I recall his career, is of no particular interest to me.\”
