Solving Whysoserious.com/operator led to Whysoserious.com/punkdrop, which is a carnival shooting game.


There is a rotating ball-shooter, as well as two buttons with two moving bars, labeled angle and power. Pressing the angle button stops the gun's rotation, and pressing the power button stops the bar, indicating the force at which the gun will shoot the ball.


There are 24 lights and 24 pin heads. Starting with the left-most light on the top, the lights are assigned to a pin head from left to right. The first 8 lights are for the top row, the next 8 lights are for the middle row, and the last 8 lights are for the bottom row.

After shooting one of the dummies to begin the game, a light pattern will travel around the game area, then stop. Shooting the dummy assigned to the light turns on a bulb above to the ticket slot. Shooting three of the lit-up dummies in a row dispenses a ticket, which leads to Whysoserious.com/stupidbats.
