The Hunt is On

Every year, the University of Chicago hosts a Scavenger Hunt. But we’re not talking about looking for things like specific tags from shirts manufactured by defunct clothiers, oh no. Try these on:

Prove that you were hired to work as an airport security guard during the ScavHunt.

Have a member of the US Congress wish your team best of luck in the “antient and honorable Scavenger Hunt at the University of Chicago” on the floor of the House.

Reedit Congress’s singing of “God Bless America” on the steps of the US Capitol to the tune of your favourite drinking song.

Create a 45-second montage of the intergenerational love affairs deferred to intragenerational resolutions in Red, Beautiful Girls, and Bad News Bears. Accompany the montage with running presentation commentary and a laser pointer. The montage may be paused so that viewers can linger.

At 8h00 on Friday, one non-captain member of your team must arrive at 54th and Kimbark (don’t get lost) They might want to bring $60 in personal burial money, a ripe orange, 15 sheets of lined paper (or a Big Chief tablet), one can of caffeine-free Coca Cola, two perfectly-glazed donuts, a valid U.S. passport, a plastic bag from Blockbuster Video, month-old menthol cigarettes, and a transcript reflecting a GPA of less than 2.5. That is all they can bring. Get your goodbyes out of the way beforehand.

It’s all ridiculous and wonderful. Check out the complete list, the site for the Hunt, and be sure to analyze the rules, too.
