Want to make me laugh? Here's a little challenge you can try, starting at daybreak tomorrow.
Round up a crew, your friends, family, and even your foes (as many clowns as you can find) and make yourselves look as pretty as me. Put on a show in front of the most famous landmark in your city, but don't get arrested -- you're no use to me behind bars.

At midnight, a new note appeared below the collection of submitted images, hinting at the next update being shortly after Thanksgiving and to watch for mail.

There were reports of a final package, which include a copy of the first issue of The Gotham Times.
