INSTRUCTIONS: Destroy a clock. Document.

This task has been dominated by physical abuse. I find that mind games are much more fun.

You are the most hilarious!

Don't worry about what kind of pie, just imagine whatever your favorite is. +1

You know how sometimes you'll sit down for a really delicious piece of pie. And it's just great. Delicious, and everything you wish a regular piece of that pie would be this is.

And then (if you were thinking of apple), right after you take that first bite and are already blown away, they go, "Yikes, I forgot the vanilla ice cream." And out comes this scoop of beautiful hand made vanilla ice cream.

That first video is the pie, the drip video is the ice cream.

(I was thinking of pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie. Do you have any?)

Thanks:) I was really a bit worried this would be lame. I couldn't think of any more torture techniques. Even if I could imagine a way to sexually humiliate a wall clock I'm not sure I'm ready to go down that road...

What about waterboarding?

Oh no, wait, that's not torture.

Silly me for being such a lefty, liberal, wooly, terrorist-loving, fool.

Adam, why must you be against us? When the clocks come to England who will protect you?

"Waterboarding" is not a type of pie, Adam.

But is Ding Dong a type of pie?

I never would have thought of that. So. freaking. Awesome.

Aw, the yelling was crushing. Poor thing, thoroughly destroyed.
It got me shivering, Flitworth, needles under the fingernails after slow, insidious damage.
One of those tasks that is actually a mirror, I guess: not sure if I like what I see but the craft is still remarkable.

I preferred the captioned pictures to the video.

I enjoyed your take on this.

A vote, and a vow never to piss you off if I can help it (any more than I may already have on previous occasions.)

That was quite awsome. The clock should have talked!

I loved the vision of the clock's physical doom reflected on it's face...
Kinda 2001: A Space Odysseyish.
