Today is Dare Day! No not the cookies! This is a day that we dare each other to do outrageous (but safe and legal) things.  To commemorate the day, I sat down with a few (anonymous) staff at the palatial Velsoft Head Office Campus and brainstormed the perfect dare for Velsoftians throughout the Velsoft Galaxy.  Here they are:

 Cindy Start singing a pop song out loud like you’re singing opera.
Dave Do your best impersonation of Dave.
Scott Walk down the street in only his underwear
Nathan Dance like a ballerina, instead of regular walking.
Luke Bow to every staff member he walks by saying “it was an honor to meet you, my lord and master.”
Sandra Write a poem for a staff member she doesn’t know very well, then perform it to them.
Carol Pretend to be a pig and start sniffing all over people.
Simon Act like a chicken. Start pecking at people, flapping wings, etc.
Pete Call up a friend and tell them how excited you are about armpits.
Brandon Walk around the room like a zombie
Jim Spin on the spot 10 times, then walk in a straight line.
Dylan Do a death scene, out of nowhere, as dramatic as he can.
Michael Do his best impersonation of Dave.
Sydney Wear all her clothes inside out.
Ben Go to the pet store and ask them if they’ve got a goldfish first aid kit.
Alex Blindfold him and have him kiss three objects without him knowing what they are.
Pablo Act like a cat (crawl on the floor, lick his paws, etc.).
Jean Swap clothes with someone and then wear their clothes for the next hour.
Craig Try to make someone laugh.
John Eat a spoonful of mustard or Tabasco sauce.
Ian Belly dance in the Production Area
