Walk For Your Lives

Double post because I missed last week and well, because we can:

A few weeks ago, neighboring San Francisco company Instructables felt their honor was challenged as "coolest place to work in San Francisco" and, donning the guise of pirates, raided our office.

Such was the cleverness of their disguise that the folks in the front room barely glanced up as they went YARRing by. 'Pirates? We have pirates coming through here all of the time! They must be for Hypnos.' No alarm was sounded.

They fought us with tinfoil swords! They took prisoners! They left us a plank.

Clearly, reciprocation was in order.

That is why, this Monday, we applied make-up and Victorian clothes, plentiful liquor, and practiced for a grueling 30 seconds before setting off for Instructables requital:

To their credit, Instructables was better prepared for the attack. Spying us via security camera, they pelted us with marshmallows and wads of paper before retreating to their inner office to be wholesale slaughtered.

Reeling in shock and horror, surviving Instructables members posted pictures aplenty in their blog, mourning the loss of their robot mascot and young, innocent intern.

Back at Three Rings HQ, the undead congratulated themselves with some drinks, some intern brains, and taught the robot mascot how to play Rock Band.

Some more zombie attack pictures can be found on undead Annie's Flickr page.

I can only imagine the hordes of children you have scarred for life. They will never look at carousels the same way again.

The carousel is next to the Zeum, a children's museum and across a bridge from a little park. It is pretty much right on a street corner though, in sight of cars driving through the intersection.

See, this why OOO is so awesome. They along with very few other companies actually make the job fun. Heck, the pictures and video of Cleaver involved is just awesome. Man.....I want to go to SF and do something to the office with a bunch of friends....

Anyway, this is awesome and glad you shared. However, do not surrender the robot thingies, those are just pretty cool.
