Here at Harken, we’re facing an ENORMOUS CHALLENGE. The spiky-haired, cool glasses, big attitude Blockheads face man-who-shall-remain-nameless…remains nameless. And darn it, he deserves better!

Let’s not overthink this: Within the next two weeks (by Midnight, January 28) we’re slapping a name on him. Send in your best suggestion by filling out the form below (it literally takes 4 seconds). If we pick what you send, you win a bunch of Harken SWAG. There are no random drawings. There is no legal language. We pick your suggested name. You get the stuff. Oh, and sorry, someone just sent in Sherm. So Sherm is already off the table.


Update: He’s got a name!




Until this very moment, the spiky-haired, cool glasses, big attitude Blockheads face man has not had a name.
