Item 50 – #GISHEpicPoems

Every Gisher has the soul of an epic poet, and we can prove it. Each member of your team should write one line of an epic poem on social media about overcoming hardship so that it flows brilliantly as a cohesive piece.

The Captain of your team should post this as the first line of your poem: “We’ve got work to do… #GISHEpicPoems”

Then, each active member of your team should chime in with a subsequent line (and ONLY one line) of poetry in a threaded post, each tagging #GISHEpicPoems.

At the end, the Captain should post: “But nothing ever really ends… does it? #GISHEpicPoems” and tag another team to continue the thread.

If your team is tagged by another team, continue the thread with Step A.

Your poem may not be about any fandom or feature any pop culture characters. Submit an image of your finished poem and then also submit it HERE in text. (If any of your teammates cannot access your team’s chosen platform due to censorship or restrictions in their country of origin, and you have no other social media platform options that are fully inclusive, the Team Captain may post the line they have authored in their stead and tag it with the author’s username.)

GISH Play-at-Home Round 2 – Item 8 – Follow Panelists on Social Media

“If you’re inspired by them, follow any or all our Racial Inequality & Injustice panelists on social media and submit an image or grid of screenshots proving you’re following. Following one person on your team gets you 15 points. If one person on your team follows everyone and submits a grid of screenshots – or a single screenshot – proving they’re following all the panelists, your team can receive up to 90 points..

GISHMAS 2019 – Item 21 – String Light Message

Jensen Ackles had some THINGS to say this year about tangled holiday lights. Use holiday strand lights to spell out a message you’ve always wanted to say to someone in letters at least 5 feet high.

GISHMAS 2019 – Item 19 – Krampus Carol

When it comes to catchy, cheerful classic Christmas carols, Krampus is overlooked. Fix this egregious oversight with a catchy Krampus tune.

GISHMAS 2019 – Item 16 – Reindeer Games

You and your reindeer family are participating in the world famous Reindeer Games. Show us at least 3 events in the games Rudolph was famously shut out of. (You’re not like all of the other reindeer, so make sure to include him this time.)

GISHMAS 2019 – Item 15 – Misfit Toy

Misfit Toys are all the rage, and you’ve got the hottest toy out there this year. Package a loved one in toy packaging complete with a bow and ribbons and place them under the tree or on a store shelf. Your “toy box” or label should indicate what makes that person inside unique and wonderful.
