Lazy Sunday XXXIV

You can find last week’s answers and contest winner in an extended entry, but now it’s time for today’s Lazy Sunday contest! This week’s prize is a Palm-size RC Helicopter that actually flies!

Everyone has a chance at winning, so don’t be shy! I’m trying to find a good balance between easy and hard questions, too, so if you feel frustrated, just answer the ones you know. Everyone who’s between the ages of 16 and 80 should be able to get at least one correct – I promise.

The rules:

It’s very simple. Every answer contains a reference to a movie, a television show, or a song. Just guess as many as you can – some will be laughably easy and some will be very difficult. You have two chances to comment with your answers.

Every correct answer is like a raffle ticket – you get one chance to win per correct answer. If you get 1 right, your name goes in the proverbial hat. If you get 10 right, your name goes in ten times. Et cetera.

The contest ends Tuesday at midnight EST. I’ll give the correct answers and the winner on the following Sunday.

I’ve tried to make it slightly more Google-proof, although some of them are easily found if you’re lazy. Otherwise, it should be simple, but if you have any questions, just ask in the comments.

Ready? Here we go!


1. Would you kill your neighbor?
The Klopeks? Sure. They’re a bunch of creepy fuckers.

2. What’s one word that describes your last fight?
Ridiculous. Someone threw a pillow in my face in a hospital room and it almost smothered me.

3. What were you doing ten minutes ago?
Sliding through the house in my underwear and socks and Ray-Bans.

4. Do you carve pumpkins every year?
No – I don’t want to blaspheme The Great Pumpkin.

5. What’s your favorite season?
The winter. Although it’s hell going through the giant hedge maze when it snows.

6. How are you feeling right now?
I feel like I’m going to die, but falling into the pool facefirst might make me feel better.

7. What did you do this weekend?
I cut out pictures of my girlfriend and glued them to my coathangers in my closet.

8. What is the last thing you touched?
Well, I touched the ear of this guy I was going out on a date with, and then touched my hair.

9. Have you ever been called a punk?
No, but I’ve been called a toaster.

10. Do you have a favorite number?
1.21

11. Do you hate anyone/anything?
Well I hate that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out.

12. If you could meet anyone who would it be?
Well, I’d want to meet and fight William Shatner.

13. Last time you went out to lunch?
At a polo match when my friend’s friend found out I was a hooker.

14. Say you were given a drug test right now.
You might find out that I’ve sucked dick for coke.

15. Do people ever spell your name wrong?
Nah. It’s an easy one – Nahasapeemapetilon.


And here are the answers and winners from last week’s contest :

Here are the questions and answers:

1. How did you wake up this morning?
Fully dressed, on top of the covers, on my stomach with my butt in the air and my nose pressed against my pillow.
This is the pose that Marty McFly slept in every time he fell asleep through the Back to the Future movies.

2. Which is more romantic: sunrise or sunset?
As we fly into the sun to reignite it, I don’t get to experience either.
This is a more recent movie, Sunshine. Excellent flick.

3. Are you wearing any non-clothing items?
A hockey mask, plus I’m carrying a baseball bat and a golf club.
Most of you didn’t guess this one. It’s Casey Jones from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, played by Elias Koteas.

4. What did you do yesterday?
The Triple Lindy.
Everybody remembers this famous triple dive from Back to School, with Rodney Dangerfield.

5. Would you take a bullet for anyone?
No, but I’d keep a watch in my ass.
If you’ve seen Pulp Fiction, you’ll remember this great scene by Christopher Walken.

6. Did you meet anyone new today?
This kid with an upside-down face.
Jake Tucker is the son of anchorman Tom Tucker on Family Guy.

7. Have you ever been on the radio?
Like, the CB Radio? Yeah, my handle was Lost Sheep.
I’m ashamed of those of you who knew without Googling that this came from the tv show Dukes of Hazzard.

8. What did you drink today?
Ten tons of Sunny D.
A very recent movie – Juno.

9. What’s the last bone you broke?
None. But I have stabbed my brain when I had my finger in my nose and my dad launched our car through the air by accident.
Rusty did this in National Lampoon’s Vacation. Clark drove the Family Roadster over a jump while Rusty was picking his nose and he said “I think I stabbed my brain!”

10. Where was the last place you went shopping?
I don’t shop anymore since I was apprehended shoplifting when I was five years old.
This one fooled some of you. It’s “Been Caught Stealing” by Jane’s Addiction.

11. When did you go swimming last?
A while ago, when I was a kid. I was drowning when I was rescued by this naked blonde chick off Cape Cod.
Tom Hanks gets saved as a small boy by the mermaid played by Darryl Hannah in Splash.

12. What book did you read last?
The Necronomicon. When it wasn’t trying to bite me.
The Necronomicon tried to bite “Ash” Ashley Williams in Army of Darkness.

13. Do you like animals?
Just my friend Rizzo.
The only animal Rizzo I know is from The Muppets. Any of the Muppet movies will work.

14. Are you scared of spiders?
Yes, especially when they’re the size of a car. I have to get William Buckley to kill them.
This was an obscure one that I can only imagine you Googled to figure out – Annie Hall.

15. How do you walk?
Like Khaba.
I’m very impressed that anyone got this one. Khaba is an Egyptian pharaoh. So this is “Walk Like an Egyptian” by the Bangles.

Here’s how I chose the winner:

First, I entered everyone’s answers into a spreadsheet, giving 1 point for each correct answer and 0 points for each wrong answer. The total number of points equaled the person’s “raffle tickets” for the drawing.

Then I created a randomized list using Random.org of every “raffle ticket” – basically each person’s name was repeated as many times as they had right answers. This gave me a random list of 174 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 174. It chose #85.

#85 is my winner.

Would you like to know who that is?

(drumroll please)

Othurme! Not only did he win, but he was the first one to guess the correct answer to the hardest question, #15.

Congratulations – you win an iPod Shuffle! Email me to confirm your win and give me your address. The rest of you, thank you for playing, and try your luck with today’s contest!

    See, I could cheat and use everyone else’s answers but I’m too freakin’ honest. I guess I also lack pride here as well because now everyone can see that I’m obviously an IDIOT.

    And I’m an even bigger idiot because I had to edit my comment. I forgot to say that I don’t know any of the answers. Clearly I should just not read Lazy Sundays. What’s Lazy for you is mentally taxing for me.

    Dammit.

    Yeah Me :clap:

    Because you are oh, so generous we get two chances to comment. Therefor I must change my answer to number 14. It is not “Requiem To A Dream” because Jennifer Connolly sucked dick for heroin, not cocaine. I change my answer to “Half Baked”.
