Monday Afternoon – Egg Hunt Clues and SXSW News

10th March 2008 by Alicia

Good Afternoon Egg Hunters, and let me present not one, not two, but three cracking clues for you to un-scramble. These three clues should keep even the best of you occupied for a little while.

Before we get started, I thought you might be interested to know that we’ve just heard from the MOO Crew at sxswi – and before midday! It was the MOO, Etsy, Threadless and Timbuk2 ‘People Powered Party’ last night in Austin, so we weren’t expecting a peep out of them for another few hours at least.

It sounds like they all had a lot of fun – we hear the queues were big, but most people made it through the doors somehow. For those that managed to get there early, there was a sneaky peek of the new MOO MiniCard holders, soon to be sold on the site. They seemed to go down very well – so we can’t wait to see what the wider-world think of them.

If you managed to make it to the party, the travelling MOO Crew said thanks for coming – it was great to see so many people there, and we hope you all had fun. If you didn’t manage to make it, don’t worry! We’ll hold another party somewhere else in the world just as soon as we can.

Now, back to the business at hand – more clues…

Clue for Egg Twenty-Five
There is a fun group for the Moosters
Where employees and all of their boosters
Find faces most friendly
Chat most liberally
And crow like a bunch of young roosters!

Hint #1: Hm… certainly sounds like a social spot, doesn’t it?

Clue for Egg Twenty-Six
With a partner, our egg has taken a stroll
Down through valley and up grassy knoll.

Now on a blanket, basket near to hand,
Our devilish egg is warm and tanned.

It’s welcoming here, at this checkered spot
Quite picturesque, with tress and whatnot.

Upon a weedy wine, our greedy egg sups
You could say he’s down in his cups.

Hint #1: What prize giver’s name does this poem describe?

Clue for Egg Twenty-Seven
farm fresh is key
on the blog literary
partner site to search

Hint #1: There we go talking about partners again! Better check the prize list.


And finally, the hints, locations and resting places of Eggs Twenty-One and Twenty-Two – the Egg Cracking heroes are:

Hint #2: What topics do you think he’d gravitate towards?

    Got 25 and 27!

  2. Melissa:

    ah… I got 27… I did a typo at first though! *WORRIED*

  3. jen:

    wow. my brain must be hurting this monday! did well over weekend but not now

  4. Jennifer:

    got 26! :D hope I’m first ^_^

  5. Kymberlie R. McGuire:

    I found Egg 26, though I entered it wrong the first time and had to enter it again (darn tiny egg codes! They’re hard to read on a widescreen monitor since the resolution is so high).

    I hope that doesn’t count against me!

  6. Kymberlie R. McGuire:

    Also, should we be worried if we don’t get a MOO Egg Hunt entry confirmation?

    There’s been a time or two where I haven’t received one after entering a code, though I usually do get them.

  7. Alicia:


    I’m afraid I’m not sure why you wouldn’t be receiving the confirmations. I can see that plenty of your entries have got through. I’ll see if one of the tech team might be able to help.

  8. Kymberlie R. McGuire:


    Thanks! I appreciate it!

    Do you see two entries for Egg 26, one with the correct code and one missing one letter? Those are the two most recent that I have submitted entries for but not received a notification.

  9. Kymberlie R. McGuire:

    Hmmm. Egg 25 has me stumped.

  10. ginny:

    kym, this one is also giving me a bit of trouble. I think I know where it’s at, but not exactly at that location.

  11. lloyda:

    yeah how can i find egg #25 & 27? eeep.

  12. Zachary:

    Concentrate on “group” and “faces.”

  13. ginny g.:

    yay! Thanks zach! Just as I suspected…

  14. Kymberlie R. McGuire:

    Ha! I was *almost* in the right spot! Thanks for the hint, Zachary!

  15. ollka:

    I know all three websites, but where to go from there?
    By the way, THANK YOU Moo for giving me a prize, I’ve never won anything ever!

  16. Lloyda:

    yey i finally found egg 25.
