    • Challenge Room: Noir Jambon

      One day, my co-worker and I started talking like 30s film noir detectives...or 30s gangsters...or The Penguin...or was it racetrack race-callers...it was definitely based on variations of the Rocky mobster characters from the Looney Tunes (Bugs Bonnets and Racketeer Rabbit). From there, my co-worker did a recording and the rest is history.
