After Wacky Olympics, we rounded out the night with two fun rounds of Lazer Tag and a midnight madness run to IHOP.
Condiment Body Painting
Mayonaise. Mustard. Ketchup. Barbecue sauce. Humans. Put them all together, and out comes a form of art (and some smelly bodies!).
Those familiar with Nintendo's Mario Kart franchise will know this Olympic as Battle Mode. One monkey from each team gets 3 balloons tied to one ankle; their job is to pop the other teams' balloons before theirs are popped.
Mountain Dew Case Race
Five monkeys. 24 cans. Who can finish them all? As some of the monkeys learned today, it's a marathon, not a sprint!
Saran Wrap Race
At Rose-Hulman, we like to take ordinary things (like fire and your traditional 3-legged race) and up the ante a little bit, thereby creating things like the Homecoming Bonfire and the Saran Wrap Race. Long story short: one monkey wraps all the other monkeys from his team in saran wrap. Then they race from one end of Speed Lawn to the building and back. If the saran wrap breaks, or isn't tight enough, you've got to start over again!
An entirely new way of cooking eggs, this method requires the consumer (in this case, one monkey from each IM team) to place one (1) egg on top of his head and secure it by placing a piece of pantyhose over his head. He then ascends the shoulder of another teammate and is given a pool noodle with which to beat the other eggs. His egg is cooked when none of the other eggs are left unbroken. Get crackin'!
Step 1: dig 3 of 5 Skittles out of a pie pan full of whipped cream. Step 2: 2 people perform the human wheelbarrow down to the other end. Step 3: 1 person holds a water balloon between their legs and hobbles back down to the pie-eaters. Step 4: 4 people leap-frog back down to the human wheelbarrows. Step 5: 1 person runs around Speed Hall. Step 6: The final person runs onto the slip 'n slide. He's got to make it all the way to the end before time is stopped.
