The Finisher

The Last Jedi came out last week, and obviously we’re still in the pre-agreed upon spoiler embargo period for the most recent installment in the Star Wars saga. And as you know, we here at Magic Mics are well known for our keeping of the sanctity of spoilers... Yep. But just in case you can’t protect yourselves from the intense internet chatter already surrounding Episode 8, we thought we might give y’all some fake spoilers that can be safely disseminated on Facebook threads. So what “spoiler” would you like to share with our viewing audience?

The Finisher

Tonight is the second night of Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday commemorating Judah and the Maccabees’ successful rebellion and rededication of the Holy Temple and the miracle of lights, when just a small amount of oil miraculously lasted for eight days in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. It’s a celebration that follows the classic Jewish holiday formula: They Attacked, We Won, Let’s Eat. And eat we do, with LOT-kuz and KOO-gull and SOOF-gahn-ee-OAT and plenty of other unpronounceable delicacies. But there’s still plenty of time yet to celebrate, so if you were to have a holiday commemorating your victory over impossible odds and miraculous circumstances, what foods might we expect to be served at your celebrations?

With the release of Unstable, we finally have the ability to staple two creatures together with the Augment and Host mechanics, letting us have access to both our chocolate and our peanut butter. So with combinations like Half-Shark Half-Rocket, Half-Squirrel Half-Vacuum, and Half-Kitten Half-Kitten able to be created, what would be your ideal Unstablestein’s Monster?
