    Yeah, don't feel bad Bithy. Actually, I posted 2 tasks at first... and then edited one out after I realized that we were all supposed to do one. [face_blush]

    Mistakes happen. :)

    Tomorrow I think once epic posts the tasks, each person should call dibs on a certain number, then complete that task. If a person is having difficulty, maybe he or she could trade tasks with another individual. :)

    The problem is, I had only a few minutes on the net, so I rushed reading the task instructions, and quickly posted the links before I logged off. Once I came back and realized my mistake, it was too late to edit...

    Good, idea Senoj. :) Co-operation is always the best plan.

    From now on, whomever sees the daily task first should post in the thread saying that they're making a new thread to discuss the task in. Then we'll orginize everything in there.

    I wonder if I can abuse my powers and make a grand list of all 12 answers?


    I'm not supposed to mod outside this forum anymore, but it'd be easier to organize if I could go into every post and copy/paste....?

    Or is it ok like this? Up to you guys.

    it would be fine with me...

    it would save epic some work, but do we really want to do that?

    ;) :p

    I don't know. As long as you're not deleting the old post, I guess that it's ok.

    No deleting. Just coping all the markup codes to make one big complete post....

    I'll wait for more input, first.

    You guys, I'll get the poem in plenty of time. Even if it were 24 hours, I have till noon tomorrow, and I'll probly write it tomorrow morning. But anyway, technically, epic gave us 48 for this one, so there's plenty plenty of time. I'm just waiting for a great toad inspiration so I can seriously impress everyone with my poem. :p Actually, I'm just lazy, but I'll have it by noon tomorrow (probably).

    EDIT: Oh, and I think Missy's idea of pasting everything to one post is a good idea... Unless we decide that we just want to make life harder for epic, which is also an option... :p

    Quick question. How is the point system working? Are there a bunch of "house points"? Or do we each earn our own separate points based on how many tasks we complete individually? ?[face_plain]

    I suppose I should reread the rules... but then again, I'm too lazy. :p

    10. Write a poem about the Cane Toad Crisis and how freakish it was. Mention James Earl Jones in the poem. And a man with a large head.

    Australia is no exception to this rule:

    Problems are everywhere. The world is like a pool
    Open wide to catch problems all the time.
    Except... Let me tell you of a couple in this silly little rhyme.
    Maybe I should start with the first problem that came:

    As they told me, beetles were eating lots of sugarcane.
    Because of this problem, someone got a great new thought
    Of bringing in giant cane toads, to eat the beetles a lot.
    Unfortunately, as it turns out, no good came from this good thought.
    (Though oddly Aussies weren't the only ones, these toads get imported a lot.)

    Cautiously now, my story moves on to the second problem.
    Actually, that was the cane toads, every large and poisonous one of them.
    Neglecting to eat the beetles at all, they began to spread.
    Each animal that ate or licked one would quickly end up dead.

    There was a king lion with a black helmet and a constant wheeze.
    Oddly enough that creature ate a toad on a Field of Dreams.
    Acting being what it did, it could have been playing it... Though,
    Dead was what it seemed to be, the wheezing ended and so,
    (Since it also went out with the words, "You were right...")

    Frantically, Humpty Dumpty ran from every toad in sight.
    Of course he had a big egg head, and as he ran he fell.
    Running up, government officials tried to fix him, but didn't do well.

    Especially the kangaroos and horses didn't help very much.
    Potato Head (who could also fill the part) was no help as such.
    Incidentally, these toads are pests, and really freaky too.
    Calm down though, we'll be right back after these messages to you.


    Tragic, folks, don't you know. Who'd have thought?
    How 12 great JCers are trapped in one spot,
    Entrenched very firmly in one little place.
    So if they try to escape, just what will they face?
    Epic will catch them and ban t

    Okay, gang, here's the long-awaited cane toad poem. (Which also is the last thing to be completed on our first daily task.) :)

    Australia is no exception to this rule:

    Problems are everywhere. The world is like a pool
    Open wide to catch problems all the time.
    Except... Let me tell you of a couple in this silly little rhyme.

    How 12 great JCers are trapped in one spot,
    Entrenched very firmly in one little place.
    So if they try to escape, just what will they face?
    Epic will catch them and ban them awhile.

    Maybe its best if they just stay with a smile.
    Especially since they volunteered for all this,
    Since they thought it would be fun and they?d not miss
    Searching through the forums all, and posting as they go.
    Alright, in a way it is kinda fun, and they're okay and so,
    George Lucas and his movie forums can wait.
    Especially Community will be just lurked of late,
    Since all of the Housemates are hard at their Tasks.
    (This line is not part of the acrostic. Don't ask.)

    At this point, the TV is suddenly struck by lightning, thus making it unable to go back to the program after the commercials are over, and thus saving Jjanda_Solo from having to write more silly poetry.
