Holy Crap, They Did It

Remember that time I asked for a bag of red skittles as a speaking honorarium?

What should I ask for next time?  Be creative.  I’m thinking a bacon pillow on my bed..

PERSONAL: Happy birthday, Hitch.
You guys are wonderful.
Update and pics from #AACon15. MST3K cast members were at my talk.
PERSONAL: Sorry to disappoint you, Julian.

    Someone touched each and every one of those skittles.
    Next time, how about a bathtub full of grape jello?

    All the brown M&Ms that Van Halen didn’t want.

    Sock puppets, hand made from wool socks by the event organizers.

    It looks like someone’s been seriously chowing down on that bag o’skittles before the picture was taken.

    All the brown M&Ms that Van Halen didn’t want.

    Actually the brown M&Ms was to prove a point. There were some serious safety items in Van Helen’s contract and the band wanted to be sure people actually read the contract and complied with the safety issues.

    I’d ask for a helper-monkey with a hat, you could name it Mojo and train him to get you even more red skittles.

    RE #10: Be careful what kind of monkey you select; some species are color-blind.

      Hmmm, good point. I don’t suppose red skittles *feel* different from the others? :D
