Are you following all the Monkey Games 2012 action? Of course you are! Are you wondering how you can make your mark on the greatest sporting festival in our entire office park? Darn right you are! Do you want your own cheap plastic inflatable torch? We have no idea.

But if so, that torch is just a torch away! A torch you make, you mean. For that second one in the first sentence of this paragraph. What we're trying to say is:

Make a Monkey Games torch. Post it in the discussion thread below. Our favorite will win an inflatable torch.

Don't be intimidated by the examples in these photos. These torches were made by highly trained Woot professionals avoiding the jobs they were highly trained to do. We don't expect a lowly civilian like you to meet this impossibly high standard. Just post a photo of yours below and we promise we'll try really hard not to think less of you for it, no matter how lousy it is. Because that's the Monkey Games spirit.

I made a tiny torch for my patriotic monkey for our torch contest. One judge said it was obscene. I cried.

I think it's super cute!! (and the obscenity comment says more about the judge than about the mini-monkey-torch)

I got my torch, that lights up! Shown both on and off (pardon the darkness)



Then, so the monkeys wouldn't feel left out, they got their own! (The red light was the only way I could show that the torch was actually 'burning')

Is it too late for flaming monkeys?

LOL. Both of mine were pretty easy. Green tissue paper over a Maglight (for the large one), red tissue over the lens to make it look red, and then some foil tissue paper to make it sparkly! DONE! I used a mini flashlight to make the same thing for the monkeys.

I was thinking of actually using a torch (you know, with fire), but after spilling hot coffee on my foot (and I don't even drink the stuff!), I decided flames may not be the best thing for me to play with this week. I do like the actual torch though, that was pretty cool!

Watching Encino Man (I have no idea why) and just had to add flamage. You can't have a torch without fire unless you are in England and then a flashlight is OK.

Maybe you couldn't tell, but my torch's centrepiece is a lit-up woot-off siren light. Just sayin'...

(USB powered torch FTW!)
