Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
STOP using water. We are DONE. The floors are ROTTING.

Why we think we should win:
We put a lot of dedication into our project in order to make it stand out. We are the team that stood outside in 40 degree weather in soaking wet clothes in order to take a picture.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Fill a glass of water.

A man goes to a theme park and decides that he would like to start at the water area. He first goes on a kiddy ride, suddenly the ride breaks, and he falls and breaks some bones. When the ride beaks it pulls the plug of the big rain barrel to start spinning the water wheel crazily. That also triggers the big boulder to crash into the giant hammer. While that happens, a person decides to go down the rainbow water slide when he falls through the toilet bowl and makes another person slide down a different slide. He crashes into some other people who knock into a wall. The person on the giant hammer then goes to the ferris wheel but his car gets stuck and he falls off. Then he decides to go on a roller coaster only to have it slam into a brick wall. Then he goes on the pirate ship boat ride. During the ride there is a mechanical malfunction and it explodes. After that he goes on the slingshot ride. He soon realized he didn't strap himself in, but it was too late and he flew off. He then decided to go on the "Tower of Terror" but the ride broke and he fell down a dark hole of despair to his death. After everything that he went through, he was then given a band-aid.
