Lazy Sunday 50

Welcome to the 50th and final edition of Lazy Sunday!

I’ve been enjoying doing these contests but the time and effort involved writing them every Saturday started to seem reversely proportional to the number of people who entered. It also started getting more difficult to come up with clever answers that weren’t rehashing old answers, so I think it’s best to go out on a high note.

This week’s prize is an Avitable prize pack containing the following:

  • A “Viva El Avitable” T-shirt in whatever size and color you want.
  • A six-pack of Avitable condoms.
  • An autographed drawing by me, of anything you want.
  • An iPod shuffle.
  • A $25 Amazon.com or iTunes gift certificate.
  • A guest post on your blog by me.
  • A one-night hotel stay in Altamonte Springs for the night of the Halloween party on November 1st. If you cannot come to the party, you can get an additional $25 Amazon.com or iTunes gift certificate instead.

For this week’s contest, there are no answers – only questions! What television series, movie, or song is referenced by each question? They’re not all the same movie or TV show this time!

For each one that you correctly guess, you’ll get one raffle ticket, and, just like normal, I’ll put all the raffle tickets into one virtual hat and draw a name for the winner. The winner to my last contest will be announced next Sunday!


1. Have you ever pretended to be your girlfriend or boyfriend’s dad?

2. Would you ever cut one of your friends on purpose?

3. Where’s the worst place you’ve ever gone without a weapon or Backup?

4. Are you afraid of tollbooths?

5. Have you ever worn OR scrubs?

6. What do you do with a smell that won’t come out?

7. Don’t you hate when nobody will acknowledge you or talk to you?

8. Can you fly a plane? Does anyone know?

9. Do you fight with your wife or husband and in-laws non-stop during Christmas?

10. Have you ever burned something valuable that wasn’t yours?

11. Has anybody ever shot you with a BB pistol?

12. Can you go to the bathroom if someone is listening?

13. Have you ever bought the very last hot dog from a hot dog stand?

14. Would you kiss a toaster?

15. Do you like gladiator movies?

    In case you’re trying to figure out how that was:

    1. Do you sleep in your bra?
    Usually I sleep under my Avitable sheets.
    The President sleeps under “Spaceball” sheets.

    2. Do you enjoy drama?
    Only if I can rent it from the vendor between the scanner and the coffee machine.
    The movies come from Mr. Film, next to Mr. Coffee, on Dark Helmet’s ship.

    3. Are you a girly girl?
    No, I’m tough, especially if someone shoots me.
    Princess Vespa gets her hair shot and shoots all of the attackers with precision.

    4. Do you dress up on Halloween?
    I dress up as a woman in a dress, but I keep my cigar and don’t shave.
    This describes Princess Vespa’s stunt double.

    5. What are you doing right now?
    Protecting the chastity of a youngish girl.
    Dot Matrix, voiced by Joan Rivers, has a chastity alarm for the princess.

    6. Have you ever been called a bad influence?
    Not if they don’t want their crotches to hurt like a motherfucker.
    Dark Helmet’s ring shoots directly into people’s crotches.

    7. Are you currently frustrated with a guy?
    I keep thinking he’s just going to fall asleep on me.
    Princess Vespa almost marries Prince Valium.

    8. Do you have a best friend that’s a guy?
    Sort of.
    He’s a Mawg!

    9. Have you ever thought of having plastic surgery?
    I had my nose done as a teen.
    Princess Vespa’s plastic surgery secret.

    10. Do you like your life?
    I did until I had the special.
    William Hurt shows up in a cameo, eats the special and has a chestburster alien bust out of his stomach.

    11. Have you ever had a good feeling about something?
    Yes, and apparently my good feelings are more than that.
    Lone Star has the power of the Schwartz!

    12. Do you have any plans for tomorrow?
    I just want to see if my ass is still as big.
    The President accidentally gets his head put on backwards after transporting and sees how big his ass is.

    13. Recently done anything you regret?
    Does self-consumption count?
    Pizza the Hut got trapped and ate himself.

    14. Whats the closest thing to you that’s liquid?
    Self-referential yogurt.
    Mel Brooks played the wise old Yoda.

    15. Are you easily confused?
    Yeah. And I take orders from the President way too literally.
    Dark Helmet has people literally comb the desert.

    Random.org randomized my list of 21 people who guessed correctly and using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 21. It chose #20.

    #20 is my winner.

    (drumroll please)

    Congratulations to Bluepaintred!

    You win an iPod Touch! Email me to confirm and give me your name and address. To everyone else, thanks for playing!

      1. Have you ever pretended to be your girlfriend or boyfriend’s dad?

      Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

      2. Would you ever cut one of your friends on purpose?

      Miss-Britt.com

      3. Where’s the worst place you’ve ever gone without a weapon or Backup?

      Why are people guessing Veronica Mars? OK. I’ll go with that.

      4. Are you afraid of tollbooths?

      If I guess Monk even though I’ve never seen the show, do I lose points for cheating?

      5. Have you ever worn OR scrubs?

      Um, what? Have I ever worn OR scrubs? What the fuck dude? What’s that show with the illiterate fuck? THAT one.

      6. What do you do with a smell that won’t come out?

      Divorce her. Or sue the valet if you’re on Seinfeld.

      7. Don’t you hate when nobody will acknowledge you or talk to you?

      You realize there are multiple possible answers, right? Like the Sixth Sense. Or Ghost.

      8. Can you fly a plane? Does anyone know?

      Ha! I know this one! Wonder Pets!

      YESSSSSSS!

      9. Do you fight with your wife or husband and in-laws non-stop during Christmas?

      National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

      Or, um, every other fucking holiday movie ever made. And then we kiss and make up at the end when we learn the real Reason for the Season.

      10. Have you ever burned something valuable that wasn’t yours?

      Billy Madison. At least, I’m assuming that poop wasn’t theirs.

      Oh OK. FINE! The Dark Knight when he burns up the money. Although technically, he only burned his half.

      11. Has anybody ever shot you with a BB pistol?

      Yes! That’s what happened to my eye! Didn’t I ever tell you a Christmas Story?

      12. Can you go to the bathroom if someone is listening?

      Is watching like listening? Because I’m pretty sure Elliot on Scrubs just has an issue with the listening.

      13. Have you ever bought the very last hot dog from a hot dog stand?

      Actually, yes. Outside The Met in NYC.

      14. Would you kiss a toaster?

      The Brave Little Toaster!!!

      Oh wait. No. I don’t think they kissed. Too bad you don’t watch Boston Legal because it cold totally be that one.

      15. Do you like gladiator movies?

      Only if they are called Gladiator.

      Woo Hoo! I win the prize by default for having the most awesome answers!
