Other Movies that Could Describe Female Genitals
RESII

Round seven featured movies that could double as euphemisms for the reproductive organs. Films used included No Country for Old Men, Spice World, and The Bone Collector.   Teams that couldn’t grasp all of those movies wrote in their own answers. Among the best were Hot Fuzz, Snatch, and The Bridges of Madison County (ok, I made that last one up but I think it’s solid).   Poop Schmear figured out the most movies and earned the most points overall. Their reward? A gift certificate of 35 large (large means dollars). A tie for second emerged between Tres Lobos and A

What if 'Sudden Death' Got 'The Onion' Treatment
RESII

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A formerly disgraced city fire marshal dispatched over a dozen kidnappers in a botched hostage crisis involving the Vice President, the seventh game of the Stanley Cup, and several implausible, if not impossible, stunts, police said Tuesday. Darren McCord, 33, of the Pittsburgh fire department and a fire Marshall at the Stanley Cup, saved the Vice President, his daughter, and various other VIPs, authorities said. "Mr. McCord is a model American," said Vice President Daniel Bender in a statement. "He saved many lives, including my own and preventing the kidnappers from stealing millions from the US government." The day started off as a happy one for

Turning Seventy: What Happens When our Superstars Drop?
RESII

So Sylvester Stallone turns 70 this week. What happens when superstars like Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and my favourite, Harrison Ford die? They are all of AARP age and now the time is nigh for celebs to die. In this year of 2016, no one is safe. Other film stars have died, sure, but the era of the blockbuster started in the 1970s. Now these women and men who ushered in the era are entering their twilight years—together. These big stars will someday go supernova, and there will be nothing for us to do but mourn and watch their art. Speaking of a supernova, Solo Lobo exploded by himself to victory. The Inttorneys

Urban Fervor
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Thesis   30 Rock has always been a cultural touchstone for me. It went on the air at a perfect time in my life. I was in college, studying something completely impractical (English!), and living with four weird and hilarious dudes. We all thought quite highly of ourselves—we were high-minded cultural elites!—but we behaved like boorish dummies all day, every day. TV had shows like Always Sunny to give us our “slobs and monsters” fix, and we enjoyed those well enough. We even had a solid “people too good for their station” outlet in The Office. UK or US: either was just fine. What we didn’t

Swayziness Craziness: The Battle Betwixt ‘Dirty Dancing’ and ‘Roadhouse’
RESII

Wednesday night’s last dead celebrity of round seven was Bodhi himself, Patrick Swayze, giving his epic speech from Roadhouse. In this blog past, I made claim that Roadhouse is one of the most rewatchable films of all time. It is a perfect stupid movie—entertaining in all the right parts while featuring ridiculous situations. But a lady cried out: “for naught—Dirty Dancing is Swayze’s best film.” (Note: those might not have been her exact words). It is a debate as old as the late 1980s: what is Swayze’s best film? Is it Dirty Dancing or Roadhouse. Sorry

The Shake Team Returns, Triumphs
RESII

After a hiatus due to newborn, the Shake Team decided to shake it up and win back the crown Wednesday. It had been months since the Shake Team had descended on the noble shoes of Three Lions. But tonight they came, and they came for cold hard cash. They received it after a spirited battle with William Shatner Face. In fact, it took round eight to decide things between the two heavyweight teams of quiz. Team Shatner did not walk away empty handed—far from it—in fact, they won a prodigious 25 smackaroos (gift certificate) for their tremendous play. The Government Drones finished in third place. Four points

In Praise of Rebecca Black
RESII

Don’t you hate having to understand songs? Is “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” driving you nuts? Well then, “Friday” is the song for you. Musician Rebecca Black celebrates a birthday this month and was thus honoured with a spot in round two. Black performed the song, “Friday,” which might just be the most literal song of all time. To wit, Black recaps her day with infectious alacrity: “Seven A.M., waking up in the morningGotta be fresh, gotta go downstairsGotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal” Who among us haven’t woken up, jonesing for cereal?

Tres Lobos Has Pants, Victory
RESII

A perfect (and doubled, to boot) round three launched Tres Lobos with the Pants into victory lane Wednesday. Tres Lobo never looked back from there, although Beware Franken-Mountain came close to unseating the eventual champions. The battle was on for third, as teams traded the spot back and forth like pogs. Wild Bill's Fan Club narrowly defeated Quiz on my Face for the third and final podium spot. Our last federalist President, John Adams was a principled dude. Before becoming the first Vice President and Second President, Adams defended the British troops who shot and killed five unruly pro-American, anti-British

TVCeption: Why ‘Tool Time’ Would Be a Terrible Show
RESII

Wednesday’s round visual highlighted TV shows that had TV shows in them. One notable absence was Tool Time, the show within Home Improvement. A huge hit from the 90s that seems to be forgotten, Home Improvement used to be syndicated all the damn time alongside Jeopardy! on broadcast networks. Now, Tim Allen’s magnum opus appears missing in the cultural zeitgest in the midst of the Full House reunion. Home Improvement centers on Allen’s Tim Taylor, a handyman cum TV personality. Taylor’s show, Tool Time, fits into the larger program by largely making it a platform for what Tim has learned

The Limp Bizkit Sunoco Tour
RESII

For one night, Dayton was the capital of the [fake] music world. Pranks and rumours are often ill-advised. Most involve some celebrity scandal (like Rod Stewart’s stomach) or celebrity death (Paul is dead). However, yesterday saw what happens when an internet prank goes right: Limp Bizkit was alleged to play at a Sunoco gas station. Go ahead, google Limp Bizkit 420 Sunoco. I’ll wait. It’s a hilarious, obtuse prank. And one that is fairly harmless: people coming out to see the “it” band of 1999 (oof – I miss Prince) it band play at a gas station in the sixth largest city in Ohio. And even though the rumour was quickly dispelled, people
