Give kids your money!

I don’t really know what to say: Team Awesome is beating PZ.  Again.

But I want to beat him by more.  Why?  Because if we win by a ton that provides me with two things.

1.  Most importantly, the happiness of knowing that one of the best organizations in the country is getting more resources they can use to show the wonder of the universe to secular kids.  This is freaking important, especially with all the pressure those kids receive in school.

2.  Far less important, but still awesome: gloating rights over PZ.

So what can we do?

If Team Awesome hits $5k, what do you guys want to see from me?  Last year I waxed a leg and shaved my head.  Tell me what you want to see.

Or, y’know, just throw in spare cash if you think the children are our future.

    Your next talk is delivered entirely in song.

    • JT Eberhard

      How about one argument per talk for the rest of the year?

      • christophburschka

        I’d settle for that.

        Watch out, you’re in the lead! :D

        • JT Eberhard

          Gotta hit $5k. ;) But yeah, I’ll do it.

          • JT Eberhard

            How about this: if we hit $10k, I’ll get songwriters together and lead the production of Atheism: the Musical. :) Will sing on the concept recording.

            Now to talk Crommunist into playing in the musical…

      • Loqi

        Aww, come on, part of the fun would be writing an entire talk in verse. Perhaps you could consult a songwriter for help if writing isn’t your thing. Perhaps a musician with wild hair, bare feet, and an Australian accent? :)

          Digital Cuttlefish could help with the writing in rhyme

    • Christina

      Song is tricky. I’ll settle for blank verse.

  • John Horstman

    I kind of want to see you perform “Food, Glorious Food” from Oliver!, but that’s just because it’s stuck in my head right now for no reason I can identify, and I’m having a hard time banishing it. Probably not the best incentive, since then it might get stuck in other people’s heads, and nobody wants that.

    Did I miss the videos of you singing from the last donation drive?

  • Mad Hominem

    I was gonna say get a mohawk, but I really like the musical idea…
