|Now Picnic Activate!

| It's Puzzlestorm 2005! Despite having only 10 hours of notice (they just told us last night at midnight that it was going to be today), we've arranged a great team, called Now Picnic, which will win puzzlestorm once and for all!
Chart our progress on the scoreboard...
|Good band names generated during brute force search for answers to "fill in the blanks":
come spy in
i hack pops
i pinch i do
once i bold
only i bold
sky or deli
|I kind of like "income deli" and "sky or deli" for its unusual grammatical structure for a band name.
|"they might be giants" is pretty unusual in being an entire sentence. maybe I should start a band called "I wonder what happens if I push this button?"
|I can't figure it out. Who won?
|(I guess they never updated the final scoreboard!)
We came in third. Another team solved 8 puzzles, but got more "points" from solving early. The first place team solved the meta-puzzle.. we were ignoring it, but eventually all the extensions caught up with us. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the result.
