The Idiot Box

I've been ruthlessly and painfully tagged by the lovely and talented Becca - oh, was it good - but a Sexy Pharaoh Wizard must brave the dangers and, with dutiful chin up, march on through the unforgiving wasteland of the internets.

So, in order to retain my Bloggers Union Local #13 card, I am directed to complete this meme to the last. Being such a lazy bastard, at least the program will dot my Is and cross my Ts. Sadly, I must refrain from the 8 random things meme simply because I used up all my vaguely interesting facts already, and nothing is left but this empty, rotting husk of disinformation and lies and how exciting would that be to rummage through when one has the Bush Administration for that?

But please, I'm begging you, don't send Pinhead after me.

Send Jodie Marsh instead.

Anyway, before I get back to work, I humbly present the Iron-Clad Rules of Irrevocableness:

a. Post a list of 10-20 TV shows you love (current or canceled)
b. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show
c. When guessed bold the line and write a little bit about why you like that character
d. Post in your own blog. (if you want)

1. The Simpsons (LBR and Becca wisely selected Homer)
2. The X-Files (Freida Bee chose the wonderful Agent Scully)
3. Millennium
4. Futurama (Becca picked Bender)
5. That 70s Show (why does such an evil network have so much quality programming? Wait, you can change the channel with this - what do you call it? - re-moat?) (Becca got Red, though Donna is a close second - yum!)
6. Clerks: Uncensored (obviously, yours truly)
7. Angel
8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
9. Kolchak: The Night Stalker
10. Tales From the Crypt (Freida Bee assumed the Crypt Keeper. Correct!)

Huh? Oh, sorry. Nearly fell asleep listening to my coworker's interminable rambling. So, yeah, as before, if you read, and so wish it, consider yourself tagged. Just remember my heartfelt and timeless rant about The People vs. The Man. La révolution, c'est nous !

Updated with excitement!

2. and 6. SEEM too easy, so I'll guess 1..

Is it Barney?

Is THAT what we're supposed to do?

This meme is not simple like a moo moo. (oh and when I just looked up how to spell that, I saw a nasty defn., but I was meaning the sexy dress thing

Randal Graves said...

You're supposed to guess all ten. Just because I like a snifter of port at Christmas doesn't mean Barney is the choice.

Wait. There's a nasty sex act associated with the phrase 'moo moo?' Is that like a Dirty Sanchez? No, don't tell me, I don't want to know.

I am all memed out and too tired and confused to do this tonight.

Je suis desolee.

I hope you can find it (sniff, sniff) find it in your heart to forgive me.

b said...

Wow, I got nothin'. Sorry. :(

I've seen 1, 2, 5, and have heard of most of the others but I think The Simpsons is the only show I know some of the characters names but not enough to take a fair guess.

La Belette Rouge said...

The only show I have seen on your list is the Simpson's ( and that was inadvertently). I'll guess,hmm, Homer?

Freida Bee said...

Well, THAT'S too hard, so this will suck, 'cause I also have not seen most of these, but, of course, that does not prevent me from trying...

1. The Simpsons - (Have you not seen Barney sober?- After you have, I dare you to not change your mind.) OK, I'll take a second. Is is Lisa?
2. The X-Files - No, DCap, it's Dana. (Right?)
3. Millennium - Never saw. Lemme guess: the pithy sidekick?
4. Futurama - Is it the mom from Married With Children with one eye? (She's the only one I could describe one bit.)
5. That 70s Show- Donna
6. Clerks: Uncensored - Randal?
7. Angel - Never seen, but I'll guess: Angel (Ok, I copied.)
8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Sarah Michelle Geller. states. my. case.
9. Kolchak: The Night Stalker - You're scaring me on your choices here. I'll guess. I'll guess the smart beautiful forensic scientist.
10. Tales From the Crypt - The crypt keeper. Or the narrator.

For the record. This meme sucked because I'm not good at it. Did I win an iPod?

Mary Ellen said...

Crap..this was hard because I've never seen half those shows. I don't watch that much TV.

1. The Simpsons-Lisa
2. The X-Files-Mulder
3. Millennium-never saw it
4. Futurama-never saw it
5. That 70s Show -I'm torn here..Fez or Leo? I'll go with Leo
6. Clerks: Uncensored-never saw it
7. Angel-never heard of it
8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer-never saw it
9. Kolchak: The Night Stalker-never saw it
10. Tales From the Crypt-never saw it.

Sheesh...I feel so out of touch!

Becca said...

Oh man I actually only meant to give you the blogging star award and didn't want to tag anyone on the memes...but it's still pretty darn cool you did the TV meme and I'm gonna go back and learn about those 8 just watch me.

But anyways now I get to guess! This really is a fun meme...
1. Homer?
2. Scully (that was one darn cute red head)
3. Onan Gupta?
4. Bender?
5. Red
6. Randal Graves perhaps?
7. Angel
10. Hmmmm....Is it The Crypt Keeper or is it a character from an episode?

This is fun thanks for doing this!

Becca, I just can't read, apparently. Glad it wasn't a Reading Comprehension Award! Then I'd have to decline!
