Lazy Sunday XLIII

Welcome to the 43rd Edition of Lazy Sunday!

Last week must have been a tough one. Sybil is the only one who correctly identified #14 as “Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic”, Mike LeSombre is the only who correctly identified #11 as “Scrubs” and nobody identified #12 as “Angel”.

You can find the rest of 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 another iPod Shuffle!

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. I go through my Myspace friends and pick one of their survey bulletins and answer 15 of the questions. 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. Name something a claustrophobic person should not get into.
He shouldn’t get into a job on floor 7 1/2.

2. What one thing does a woman spend the most time on when getting ready?
Having her buttcheeks buffed by a floor polisher.

3. What is a Spanish word that everyone knows the meaning of?
Plethora

4. Name something in your bathroom that you leave plugged in all the time.
The clock. After I fell and hit my head trying to hang it, I’m leaving it there. Besides, now I have this crazy idea in my head.

5. Besides golfers, what is something you see on a golf course?
People with beer helmets.

6. Name a household chore you actually enjoy?
Cleaning is easy when you get pigeons and roaches to help.

7. Name something you walk out on.
A fiancee who won’t let you sit in the window seat.

8. Name a place where you see nervous people.
At SeaWorld, in the underwater tunnels where you can view the fish.

9. Name something that can be cherry flavored.
A go-go dancer’s leg.

10. Complete this phrase: “I’ll never forget my first _____”.
I like to sing a song about my very first beer when I was 17.

11. Name another word for “Dad”.
Well, according to Mom, mon chere. But he calls her cara mia, so who knows.

12. Name something a married couple might want to have 2 of.
A robot that sings happy birthday to your annoying best friend.

13. What is the first part of a person’s body to lose the war with gravity?
On some planets, your eyes bulge out until they burst.

14. Name something you see in a jail cell.
A large black man holding a small mouse.

15. Name something you find on a kitchen table.
A cornball maker.


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

First, see how you did by viewing this Google spreadsheet. Been There Done That got the most correct, with 11 right! Nice job!:

Next, here are the questions and answers:

1. What color is your toothbrush?
The color isn’t important. What’s important is that I have a friend who works in a crime lab that I can send the toothbrush to, and he can tell me how recently you brushed your teeth.
Uncle Buck

2. Name one person that made you smile yesterday?
This one handicapped guy who was making a handicapped face.
Denis Leary, “Asshole”

3. What were you doing 45 minutes ago?
Just got back from killing a whole shitload of Burmese soldiers.
Rambo

4. Have you ever been to a strip club?
Only that one where the girl jumps up and down.
My Name is Earl

5. What is the last thing you said aloud?
“My large tropical snake isn’t interested in what you’re currently offering unless your posterior meets his size requirements, miss.” Or something like that.
Sir Mix-a-lot, “Baby Got Back”

6. What is the best ice cream flavor?
Napalm. It tastes like victory.
Apocalypse Now

7. What was the last thing you had to drink?
A milkshake.
There Will Be Blood

8. The last sporting event you watched?
The Denver Broncos vs. some other team. I only watched it because I own them.
The Simpsons

9. Ever go camping?
Once, along this meteor crater. Then I got murdered, which sucked.
Wolf Creek

10. Do you like Chinese food over pizza?
Only for Christmas dinner.
A Christmas Story

11. Biggest annoyance in your life right now?
My fricking roommate won’t let me poo without talking to me.
Scrubs

12. What are you doing tomorrow?
Tomorrow? Well, first, I want to slay the dragon.
Angel

13. Where is your dad?
Tied up and gagged in the closet so that he can be framed for my murder.
Scream

14. Look to your left, what do you see?
A bottle of delicious Fiji Water.
Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic

15. Any plans today?
I plan on learning how to use those damned shells.
Demolition Man

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 125 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 125. It chose #52.

#52 is my winner.

(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Hilly!
