6. 2009: The Ocho is optioned for an action-film franchise, Eight Ways to Die Hard, Fast & Furiously.

5. 2010: The franchise is shelved, then resurfaces as an unauthorized adult DVD, Eight Dudes & Asa Akira.

4. 2011: The first (and last) Ocho-Con is held at the Salt Palace; dozens accidentally wander in from an adjacent gun show.

3. 2012: The Ocho’s original author dies and is seamlessly replaced with a ghostwriter hired on Craigslist.

2. 2013: Gov. Gary Herbert buys a second refrigerator to accommodate his Ocho clippings.
