Here’s the daily “how many snakes should I have whacked by the time the day ends in the US?” post.

With the first 24 hours of the Whacking Day event being a task for Homer and Lisa involving no snakes and no snake-whacking, the event actually began on April 11. That makes 29 days until the event ends sometime on May 9. To get the first level of prizes, you need 12,500 snakes before the event ends – and to get all the Whack Boxes as well you need 22,500 of them.

To get all 10 prizes, you need to put into your snake inventory around 431 snakes a day every day throughout the event. To get all the Whack Boxes as well (the hidden prize level), you need to gather around 775 snakes every day. April 18 is Day 8 so, allowing for some rounding:

To get all the 10 prizes: you’ll need to have whacked 3,448 snakes by the end of the day in the US.
To get all the prizes and all 10 Whack Boxes: you’ll need to have whacked 6,200 snakes by the end of the day in the US.

Yesterday, I posted a comment from Stu that puts those numbers in a little perspective. Just in case you missed it, here it is again:

I would venture to say that you could actually have a few less than [that] at this point and still make 12500. Here’s my reasoning: if one did not use donuts to get the whacking license, it actually took a few days to start whacking snakes in others’ towns. As such, your snake per day ratio will not be EXACTLY even for each day. In other words, you could start out slow, gain momentum, then still achieve 12500.

These posts will be appearing every day at roughly this time, when it’s morning in America. And please feel free to correct my calculations.
