The Final Challenge
The challenge has been cast. The gauntlet thrown down. Many have been called, few have answered. On the planet Hacknor... On Fire Island D, twelve brave contestants will compete.
Only two remain.
Who will falter? Who will thrive? Who will be
"The last two.
This will be your toughest challenge yet."
Jon pulls out a hat and holds it out upside-down towards the two contestants.
"What is that?"
"It's a hat, Erifia."
"That's fairly obvious. What about it?"
"This hat, Henchie, is your challenge. Or rather, your challenge is within it."
"The challenge is in the hat?"
"It's in that hat. How about that?"
"Within this hat are several pieces of paper. Written on each of those pieces of paper is a challenge. You are to take one piece of paper and complete the challenge on it."
"Oh yes, this challenge could be anything. You may have to take Hudson out for ice cream sodas or you may have to tap dance for Queen Galacta. You may even have to babysit some monkeyboys. Who knows."
"You've got to be joking."
"Nope, I'm serious. Furthermore, all of the contestants as well as judges will judge this challenge. Who's going first? What will the challenge be? Will it be the lady or the tiger? That's a literary reference."
