THE STAKES:

1) The winner will personally give the loser a haircut at Fantastic Fest, to be worn throughout the fest.
2) The loser will spend a week living the winner’s lifestyle. To wit:
– If Snider loses, he will spend a week as a full-time stay-at-home dad (early mornings, middle-of-the-night awakenings, other inconveniences TBA).
– Is Bayer loses, he will spend a week as a Mormon (no coffee, tea, alcohol, or tobacco; no profanity; must go to church on Sunday).
