Lazy Sunday XXXVII

I’ve changed things a little this week. A few people wanted to see how they did on the previous contest, so I’m going to start including a link to a Google spreadsheet that will show everyone who entered and which ones they got right.

Also, I’m giving away two prizes today! Last week, for the first time, I was able to stump everyone with #14. Nobody got it right. So, to the first person who gets #14 correct in the comments here, I will send a $25 Amazon gift certificate! Here it is:

14. Do you think too much or too little?
I don’t know. I just want to fire up some Ambassadors.

You can find last week’s answers, scores and contest winner in an extended entry, but now it’s time for today’s Lazy Sunday contest! This week’s prize is $25 Amazon.com Gift Certificate!

Everyone has a chance at winning, so don’t be shy! The questions may be hard, but 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. 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. You’re on the honor system – try not to Google or look at other people’s answers!

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

Ready? Here we go!


1. What’s the full name on your birth certificate?
Well, my middle name is Danger.

2. When was the last time you were told you were beautiful?
1912, when I was young, by Jack. He’s dead now.

3. Suppose you see your boy/girlfriend kissing another person; what would you do?
Scratch up his/her car, deflate the tires, break the headlights, and cut up the seats.

4. What is bothering you right now?
Well, this electronic traffic sign on the side of the interstate keeps talking to me.

5. Who was the last person to play with your hair?
Nobody. I’ve been bald since that stupid meteor shower.

6. I’ll bet you miss someone right now?
Not really. My mom dropped me on my head when I was a kid, and my brothers were assholes.

7. What is your favorite color?
Puce. I love it in lollipop form.

8. When was the last time you got a back massage?
I got one from this beautiful Asian girl. She was good – I fell right asleep. Of course, I also think she might have messed with stuff from my locker when I was sleeping.

9. If you were given $100, would you spend it or save it?
I’d go down to a pawnshop and have a rat gnaw a mole off of my face.

10. What are you doing this weekend?
I have to work at my job as a concierge, at least until my plans for my own hotel are complete.

11. Last place you went out to eat?
Monk’s.

12. Where are you right now?
At my new house in Cypress Creek. My boss just threw his shoes out the door and said goodbye to them.

13. Do you have any enemies?
Just another me from another dimension who keeps killing all of his doppelgangers.

14. What are you doing?
My dog and I are moving in with my son. He’s a shrink, but I don’t think he’s wound too tight. Tighter than my other son, though.

15. How’s the weather today?
IT’S GONNA RAIN!


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

First, see how you did by viewing this Google spreadsheet:

Next, here are the questions and answers:

1. Are you tan?
Yup, I’m actually orange. Or pink. Pink is the new orange, isn’t it?
Legally Blonde

2. How old will you be in 13 months?
Old enough to walk into a liquor store and order a keg of beer. Even if I have to growl a little bit.
Teen Wolf

3. Where did you get the underwear you are wearing right now?
I won it in a walk off.
Zoolander

4. What are you looking forward to in the next month?
Going out every night, sleeping all day, doing whatever I want, eating in a fancy restaurant.
Nothing Compares 2U, by Sinead O’Connor (and written by Prince)

5. Are you easily confused?
Nope. I’m Joe, the smartest man in the world.
Idiocracy

6. Do you think you would make a good wife/husband?
As long as my wife didn’t cook my dog.
War of the Roses

7. Have you ever liked someone who treated you badly?
Yeah, there was this one guy I liked even though he locked me in a room and made me bang pans and pretend I was retarded.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

8. Do you fall for people easily?
No. Usually angels have to put me in mortal danger with someone for me to fall in love with her.
A Life Less Ordinary

9. What are you listening to right now?
A Dracula puppet musical.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall

10. Do you live with both your parents?
Just my mother, although she won’t call me the Warlock like I want her to.
Live Free or Die Hard

11. Last person you said I love you to?
I don’t say that. I just say “Ditto.”
Ghost

12. What is it you truly want right now?
To watch People’s Court in the next 30 seconds.
Rainman

13. Are you wearing jeans right now?
Nope. I already sent them off to the next person.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

14. Do you think too much or too little?
I don’t know. I just want to fire up some Ambassadors.
You wish I’d tell you this one. Go guess!

15. Who is in your house right now?
Somebody who keeps asking me about my movie preferences and quizzing me in a raspy voice.
Scream.

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 131 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 131. It chose #122.

#122 is my winner.

(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Sybil Law!

You win The Hillary Nutcracker! 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!

  23. Poppy

    I gave it to my dad for Father’s Day once, along with several other Bill movies. We proceeded to watch it in front of my young niece. Bad idea, bad idea. But an awesome movie nonetheless. Someday I will purchase all of Bill’s movies so that I can passively stalk him.
