Lift 1 will be 7 pounds!

February 11th, 2009

It’s official: we’ve raised $701 dollars as of midnight Eastern February 11th, so the first lift will be an object weighing 7 pounds! What should I lift on Friday? Comment on this post with your suggestions!

    How about a fryer chicken? It is easy to get it the right weight (just go to the butcher and order a seven pounder) and you can the smother it in sauce and cook it after you lift it (it is multi-purpose; how many seven pound things can you do that with, huh?)!

    I think you should lift it by the wings! No one eats the skinny part anyway and it will give a better “effect”!

    How about a wicker basket containing 7 pounds of eggs? (or like however many pounds of eggs to make the basket + eggs = 7 lbs)

    A human head.

    I could lend you a seven-pound stripey kitty. He won’t wiggle too much!

    A chicken would be awfully messy. How about a newborn?

    Cat! Cat! Cat!
    Extra points if it is in a pillow case, and claws its way out while attached to your beard.

    Can you find a 7 lb baby that can hold on tight?

    When you get to $1000 I’ve got a cat that will make his home in your beard. Add $1600 and I’ve got a cat that will get him out…

    I think the human head tips the scales at 8lbs@Riley

    Rod Blagojevich’s heart.

    For the other 6.95 pounds needed, you can use his collection of gold and gemstones.

    Mary Kate and I put you over the $700 mark last night. For the amusement of our sons, nieces and nephews, we’d like to see you lift the Millennium Falcon. The kids would go crazy for it.

    I just pushed you over $900!!! Now I suggest that Beard pick up his PHONE and call his attorney, as we need to start talking about the liability to the face associated with lifting these heavy (and sometimes claw-inclusive) objects.
