"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

yeah, incorrect. Correct answer is Cactus World News. And with that, ladies and gentlemen, the second round is over.

yeah, I do really feel bad for MG, Derek and Mitch, because I believe all three would have had a real shot at going to the Elite Eight or even further had the timing worked out for them. Then again, I suppose that's the price you pay for having a life. In any event:

Your SOMB Elite 8:

Agrimorfee
BobtheSquid
El Douche
Hero
Little Jess
Midnite Vulture
Scarymuppet (a.k.a Team Unwanted Pregnancy)
Slackmo


good came, Geoneb.


ps - cactus world news? never heard of it.


d/l "The Bridge," pretty good song.

OK, so as I alluded to earlier, the structure for this will be much different now that the first round is over. We will now be doing bracketed match-ups, in best out of five matches. More details will be posted later, but what I need from my Elite 8 now is a list of times you will be most likely be available to play over the course of the next two days. Assume that you will need at least an hour free to play this (or at least largely devoid of interruptions). So please post those times in this thread. The matches will be as follows, bracketed based on the chronological order of who advanced: Slackmo vs. El Douche Hero vs. Little Jess Scarymuppet vs. Agrimorfee Midnite Vulture vs. BobtheSquid

Hmm... gonna be questionable for me. I'll have some time tonight, like, from 8 to 10:30. Tomorrow I'm going to DC for work and might be going out in the evening with friends. I'll try to work this out. Late Wednesday and/or late Thursday could possibly work...
