In other news...that biatch from Weakest Link hires extra body guards to protect her scrawny ass.
 
2001-12-27 12:04:40 PM  
He should have called the Instant contestant line:

1-800-BOO-HOOO Ext. Wah! Wah! Wah!
 
2001-12-27 12:09:23 PM  
You are the weakest link.
 
2001-12-27 12:11:39 PM  
Okay, what the heck is the "finger" round?
 
2001-12-27 12:14:23 PM  
"Is that your ultimate response?"
 
2001-12-27 12:19:03 PM  
"Russell said a trip to the site of the World Trade Center in New York put his loss in perspective."

Yeah, I guess that'll do it to ya.

WHAT IN THE NAME OF THE ALMIGHTY JESUS IS THE FINGER ROUND!?!?!?!
 
2001-12-27 12:26:22 PM  
Its the part when they select the next person for the hot seat. They ask a question to all the remaining contestants, like "put the names of these cities in order from East to West" They get a list of cities, and whoever gets it right in the least amount of time goes to the hot seat. I dont watch the show, so dont ask why I knew that. And yes, this IS my final answer.
 
2001-12-27 12:27:40 PM  
What a bunch of whiney jackasses.
 
2001-12-27 12:36:59 PM  
Biggest loser ever.

I'll take "Modern Losers" for $500 Alex...
 
2001-12-27 1:42:07 PM

2001-12-27 1:42:31 PM  
Another unintentional Onion piece.

Speaking of game shows,
whadafuk happened to
Win Ben Steins Money?
 
JMT
2001-12-27 1:51:02 PM  
Maybe Ben Stein ran out of money? I dunno. They still show reruns on CC. I don't know whether new shows are being made.
 
2001-12-27 2:05:53 PM  
stinkbug,
ive wondered the same thing. Loved ben stein. that new geek thing makes me cringe. matt damon host and the cheesiness dripping off every "snappy" in-your-face comment. I think they actually ask like seven question during the show. The rest is put downs and applauding ( id like a level two question--clap, clap, clap). And that sopranos geek is just plain wierd.
 
2001-12-27 2:19:48 PM  
I love how visiting Ground Zero "put it all in perspective" for the guy.

When Jimmy left Ben Steins show, it basically bombed. I mean, they replaced him with hot boobies, but Jimmy Kimmel made that show....

It always made me feel stupid anyhow. It was worse than Jeapordy for making you feel like a complete dumbass.

err, not that I ever feel like a complete dumbass, you know, with my gigantic brain and all....
 
2001-12-27 2:53:44 PM  
Yes Teriaki, these words you speak are very true.
Though Nancy would stir my loins.
Jimmy Kimmel was the shiat.
Did you see when Jimmy came for a weeklong visit.
She couldn't hang.
But her tits were awfully perky.

At least it's better odds than the lottery..

Millionaire has wasted many people's time over the last 2 years.
 
2001-12-27 4:07:46 PM  
You guys looking at the same Nancy Pimental that I am?

She HAS no boobies. There's a little bit of creative vunderbra action going on, but REALLY look at 'em. Nothing there. She's a bony little freak is what she is.

If the show IS gone, I'd lay odds it has more to do with Stein being to damned busy to do it anymore.

And yeah, that Sopranos chick on Beat the Geeks is just....brrrrrrrrrrrrrr. *shudder*
 
2001-12-27 4:08:59 PM  
"too" damned busy, that is.
 
2001-12-27 4:11:46 PM  
talk about an EXTRA boring episode. some jackass was in the hotseat for an hour. Think about the math for a moment: assuming 12 questions (he got to $125,000) in almost an hour. an average of 5 minutes per question, including the dead-easy ones. how much dead air can you fill by some idiot going "ummmmmmmmmmm...." .


ps.. yes, Jimmy Kimmel is the shiat.
pps... wasting 2 years fora shot at a has-been game show is very, very sad. not getting an actual shot at the dough is quite amusing. I wonder if those 2 years will read well on a resume....
 
2001-12-27 4:12:13 PM  
Stinkbug: For some farking reason, I read that as "Spank Ben Stines Monkey"

*tweet*Ok, you, out of the gene pool, Now! Yes, you, the one that's in the shallow end!

Damn, I need a vacation, or lots of beer, or both.

That freak out post just made me laugh so hard, coworkers are asking what the fark I'm laughing at.

Thanks, I needed that.

You need a finger round, Sweater Girl? ;)
 
2001-12-27 7:10:08 PM  
;) Quick1, Unfortunately you're too young for me.

Thanks for the offer, though.

Wow, Fark has turned into a flirty place these days.
