Lift 2 will be 15 pounds!

February 18th, 2009

It’s that time again: midnight on a Wednesday! So far, we’ve raised an incredible $1,545.00, so that means I’ll be lifting a 15 pound object on Friday!

Even more insane: I’ll be doing this lift in front of 3,000 people at the UIC Pavilion! Tickets are available online or at the door, so if you want to see my beard fail in spectacular fashion live and in person, come on out!

Now the real question: What will I lift? That’s up to you! Make your suggestions in the comments! Can you beat the hilarity of last week’s Millennium Falcon? I’d like to see you try!

    You should lift a small dog…like Wookie:) He’s about 15lbs, put on some extra weight over the winter:(

    A tv tray table with a Hungry Man tv dinner and a 12 pack of beer.

    Or, a pair or two of the Windy City Rollers roller skates.

    How about Harmy’s newborn plus a pair of skates? Um….or else Doris’ small-but-mighty dog Scout? Can I volunteer anyone else’s anything else?

    I got it! Kay’s amazing Guinness chocolate cake must way at least 15 pounds. And then we can eat it after the lift 🙂

    Three pairs of Derby Skates?

    I like the EZ-Bake Oven idea…though you can’t beat the skates for thematic consistency. Plus if the weight comes out just a bit off, you could add kneepads or a bottle of water to round it out!

    Oh man….I’m torn between the hungry man tv dinner with 12 pack and the two human heads…..

    Can someone tape the lift so it can be posted on the website?
