What is this? It’s the Graboid Apocalypse, the event that closes out the Graboid for 2011. And closes it out with a BANG. Kind of a bummer that it happens on Christmas, but hey, it’s a simple fact that some Christmases are just better than others.
Every single day of the week (almost) all year, a new Graboid, a single moment grabbed from a random movie, appeared on this site for you to try to guess the name of the film, share with your officemates, or discuss on our message boards. Sometimes the Graboid was very easy and sometimes it was as obscure as obscure got.
The Graboid is a game: all of you against the image. It has its regular players, guys who down coffee, red bull and various pharmaceuticals 24/7 waiting for the next installment. They spring on it like a pack of wolves, trying to get the answer before their bleary-eyed colleagues. Then there’s the occasional slob who’ll slip in from nowhere and snatch the answer right out from under them. The reward was bragging rights for the day and a picture of a hot chick from the movie they just guessed.
What you may or may not know is that we’ve kept track of who’s successfully taken down the most Graboids. Those guys, a select few notables in particular, have been striving all year for this moment, when we tally the scores and award the prestige due to them (’cause prestige is about all that’s in the Graboid budget…if it had a budget). Burt Gummer can’t even begin to touch these guys when it comes to bagging Graboids.
Now the Graboids are pissed and 100 of them have shown up below looking for payback. Just four of these practically wiped out Perfection Valley. A c-note could very well kill everything on the site. So grab your elephant gun and your homemade bombs and get to whacking worms, because it’s kill or be killed. We’ll count the bodies, human and Graboid, along the way and see who’s left standing – or slithering – at the end of the day. Check out the Graboid Thread for continuing updates throughout the day. There’s going to be a shload of them.
HERE ARE THE RULES, AND BY RULES WE MEAN RULE:
GUESS EARLY AND OFTEN. GUESS TILL YOUR BRAIN EXPLODES. BUT, IN ORDER TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM HOGGING ALL THE ACTION:
ONLY ONE GUESS PER MESSAGE POST, EITHER IN THE TALKBACKS BELOW OR IN THE GRABOID THREAD. YOU PUT MULTIPLE GUESSES IN A POST, THEY WON’T COUNT. SO DON’T DO IT!!
The totals will be counted and revealed at the 2011 Grabby Awards.
Regardless of who survives, we at CHUD wish all of you very Happy Holidays…and good medical insurance…
