So round 2 tickled me tonight, as rounds of this nature tend to do. I know that a lot of you just *groan* at the notion of Christian parodies, but coming from a background where something like this actually wasn't too uncommon, I find it charming. I know what the artist is trying to do: take something secular that's popular with (as Obama calls them) young folks and give it a Christian message. The problem is that by the time a song is popular enough to parody, its lyrics are already pretty well known. Listening to the song that's supposed to teach me about Jesus only makes me think of the original lyrics, being about as counterintuitive as something can be. Still, it's pretty entertaining just from an 'omg, I can't believe this is real' standpoint.
We let Faith Duty read a couple of rounds tonight and may I be the first to say that she is coming along quite nicely. Who knows? If she keeps at it and learns to properly give you all the business (as the majority of you so rightly deserve), she may have her own bar one day. Blow up her facebook page with complements and links to incredibly offensive things online.
With only three teams, our score recap becomes incredibly easy. After leading all night, the terribly clever team Stillborn in the USA, led by Shannon and Vincent, dropped to last after a less than fantastic round 8. This left the door open for Your Mom Gained a Pound Last Night to sneak in and grab second place by a single point. Since I had their best player up at my desk reading rounds to y'all tonight, I'm pleasantly surprised and impressed to see them rank anything but last. So congrats to you, Your Mom. But the Cinderella Story of the night came from the faithfully attending and ever transforming team America's Next Top Model UN Club and OH SHIT I just caught the joke. The whole night I was trying to figure out why a usually creative team named themselves something so lame and I just caught the Community reference. This also makes me realize that I read the team name very clumsily, but oh well; I get it now. *Ahem* back on topic. Led by J.C., Top Model finally found the victory that they'd been seeking for more than a month. I would traditionally make some comment here like 'well there were only three teams' but they were two of our best teams. After victory was announced, they celebrated with cigars and a round of our shot of the night, Grandma's House, which was described as 'tasting like Thanksgiving.'
For only three teams tonight, you guys were fantastically lively and I had a shit ton of fun. Meet me back here next week and we'll do it again.
Be Excellent to Each Other.
