Contest: Lazy Sunday is BACK!

Many of you may not remember my contests that I ran every Sunday for an entire year. Each contest challenged your intellect, your knowledge of entertainment trivia and your luck. It was fun doing it, but it was a lot of work, and I spent over $1000 on prizes that I gave away.

This is the one year anniversary of the final contest, so I thought I’d bring it back for one week only. The rules are simple. I will go through Facebook or the web and pick one of those survey bulletins and answer 15 of the questions. Every answer contains a reference to a movie or a television show. In the comments, guess as many references 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.

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

This week the winner will receive a 1 GB iPod Shuffle!

  17. Elizabeth Kaylene

    FAIL. I didn’t get any of these. So I’m gonna take a stab at number one, even though I didn’t see it: Zack and Miri Make a Porno?

    Either it’s too early for me — that’s what I get for going to a concert on a work night — or I am just movie quote challenged. Which can’t be, so I’m going to blame the concert. 😀

  18. Joyous

    1. Zack and Miri Make a Porno
    2. True Blood
    3. Can’t Hardly Wait or Some Kind Of Wonderful. Is that two correct answers?
    5. Scrubs
    7. Zoolander
    9. Devil Wears Prada
    10. Mrs. Doubtfire
    14. Dumbo

    4 can’t be Watchmen, because Dr. Manhatten doesn’t really feel emotion anymore, right?

  19. Squeaky Wheel

    1. Zach and Miri make a Porno

    2. I’m guessing “Steel Magnolias”, just because of Ouiser’s “YOU are a PIG from HELL” quote, which is my favorite. I know it’s probably wrong.

    3. Can’t Hardly Wait

    4. Wall-E

    5. Scrubs

    7. Zoolander (If my life was a movie, it would be called, “Why can’t you turn left, damn it?” – I used to be made fun of in dance class all the time for it. I should have been a model. If only I hated food…)

    8. The Simpsons! 😀

    9. Gilmore Girls

    10. Mrs. Doubtfire

    11. Either Terminator 2 or Data from ST:TNG

    12. Uncle Buck (also, you’ve totally used this one before!)
