Alien Tango ARC Giveaway Gator Pack Two: Gigantagator Pack


Gator Pack Two: Gigantagator Pack

No ARC, but still pretty impressive. This has the Fight the Fuglies Starter Kit containing: a personalized, signed copy of “Touched by an Alien”; a pen; a signed can of “Everhold”; all in an exclusive “Alien Tango” tote bag. Completing the ensemble are 2 cover flats for “Touched by an Alien” and “Alien Tango”, “Touched by an Alien” and “Alien Tango” posters, postcards, magnets, an Alien Collective mug.

Hey, if you can't have the ARC, this is a darned good substitute.

Question: You're faced with the largest alligator in, as near as you can tell, existence, and it's looking at you like it's snack time and you're a Snickers Bar. What do you do, dudes & dudettes...WHAT DO YOU DO?

(Not on Hook Me Up! yet? It's not too late to enter to win. Send an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line. We'll send you instructions. You'll get entered, and maybe you'll get lucky!)

*cough* Oh wait, we're just pretending here and fantasy me can be as heroic as I'd like. Well, since I'm not a track star, I'm thinking *climb* as high I can. I've never heard of an alligator in a tree. And then shoot it. Because I'm all for protecting endangered species, especially the species of Sylvia that is being endangered by a hungry alligator.

Maybe I'd toss a giant electro shocker into the water, just to test if gators suffer from heart attacks too.
If that doesn't work, I'd try some explosive, and if I don't have those at hand...
I'll just use my number one weapon of choice, my messenger bag. I'll toss it to the gator, and while its busy shredding it to pieces, I'll join Sylvia on her tree.

I whip out my own handy dandy CHAINSAW. (fyi it's purple). I pull the cord and the saw comes to life.

Everyone - get behind me! Matt -- get ready to make some Gator Gumbo cause it's on like Donkey Kong!!!

The Gator charges.....brrrrraw! Off goes a leg. His jaws snaps towards my head but I dodge and I'm able to seperate his other leg with ease brrrraww! Pretty soon I've got a cool Gator Jigsaw going.

@Dren Oh, I don't doubt you could fit a chainsaw in your purse. I've been studying women's purses and the best explanation I can come up with is that they are Bags of Holding (or mini TARDISes, if you're a different brand of geek). There's no other way a woman could fit screwdrivers, duct tape, bottles of water, sack lunches, full-sized notebooks, diapers & wet wipes, toys, curling irons, phone chargers, three different pairs of glasses (reading, regular and sun), Barbies, a full crochet kit, a change of clothes...all into one bag.

Okay, those all weren't the same woman, but I *have* seen each of those produced from a woman's purse. Chainsaw? Easy peasy.

@Katie Dalton In mine I have a box of crayons, a toy car, a bouncey ball, a bracelet that goes clicky-clicky-clicky and therefore entertains whiney children, prescription painkillers and several doses of cold, cough, ache, cramp and headache meds, a tape measure, a pair of fold-up scissors, chapstick, hand lotion, *takes a breath* notebook with handy lists, latest novel, Sharpies, pens, highlighters, reward/loyalty cards, and the aforementioned crochet kit with hooks, needles, stitch markers and a second pair of fold-up scissors.

I'm really not sure what the point of typing all this out was. Uh. Once I started I couldn't really stop.

And despite all that, if my purse gets lifted I won't give a crap. I keep my phone and my wallet in my pockets. My purse really is nothing but a bag of useful sh!t.

After de-eyeing the Gray Big Eyed alien my pen has crazy practice at poking things in the eye, so I would poke the gator in the eye and then feed my co-workers to him so at least he would have something to distract him with and then I would run as fast as I could.

Ok, if a gigantic gator is coming after me I would definitely have to wonder why my life took this weird direction.

Then of course I would have to find someway to distract it until I could get to my truck and run the thing over again and again. Once it is really dead then you sell the giant thing to someone so they can taxidermy it up and then sell it to one of the sporting goods or other stores where dead animals are popular.

Well, first I relax slightly, because it's not a salt water croc, and people, those are NASTY.

Then I would think, 'okay, no, it's not a monstrous salt water croc, but it's still a GIANT REPTILE WITH REALLY SHARP TEETH, and it's not even like I'm going to be eaten by a dinosaur, which would bring a moment of geeky happiness as I left this mortal coil.'

I would do a mental tally of all possible weapons I had on me, which includes my swiss army knife, several pens, a sonic screwdriver (yes, REALLY!), my mobile phone, and several delicious macaroons.

At this point I would run like hell for the nearest tree, where I would first ring emergency services, and then happily sit eating delicious macaroons and taking photos of the giant crocodilian on my phone so I could post them on facebook.
