Lazy Sunday XLV

Welcome to the 45th Edition of Lazy Sunday!

Last week was tough for everyone. Nobody correctly guessed that the answer to #3 was “The Simpsons” or that the correct answer to #13 was “Roswell”. I’m ashamed of you supposed Simpsons fans and scifi fans out there!

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 a mystery! I’ll be pulling out some cool stuff and giving it away, but it’s a total enigma to you!

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!

9. If you were in an emergency situation and you had to deliver a baby, could you?

Scrubs

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 128 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 128. It chose #37.

#37 is my winner.

(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Bunny!

    OK I don’t remember stuff from movies like you do, but wasn’t it a wallet that said Bad Motherfucker and a keychain that said Pussy Wagon? A Keychain that matched Buck’s truck in the parking garage with the same name painted on it?

    If you had said “No my keychain says Pussy Wagon but my wallet reads Bad Motherfucker,” I would have answered all of your questions correctly and been enjoying my vibrator right now, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

    ** i was at the dollar store this morning with friends, and they had a keanu reeves biography there that i bought (the keanu matrix). the back cover had a quote that read “people either dig me or they hate me! – keanu reeves.” i thought this was funny because i don’t think there’s another actor alive that i am more neutral and indifferent towards (not to mention, that was the only quote on the cover, no book praise at all). looking the book over, its one of the most unintentionally funny and egotistical things ive ever seen.

    All I know is that 8 is Newhart and 10 is Gremlins.
    I realize this is probably not enough to win anything, so I’ll go back to websurfing and feeding my Internet addiction.
