While you were watching Cirque du
Soleil throw out the first pitch at a Blue Jays game on a Tag Team
Thursday... we were wrapping up the @midnight week.with a word
jumble. Today's #HashtagWars: #SpookyCartoons. PFT and Greg are
tied at 700. John has 600.
As we continue on, we have Black
and WTF (from the Tumblr of the same name) and tonight's Live
Challenge, Star Wars: A New Low. On imgur, we have a picture of
R2-D2 peeing. Please give us the synopsis for R2-D2's depressing
story line. Hodgman gets the 1000 from this: R2D2 goes on a bender
after learning the's not really a robot, just a little person
shoved into a trash can for 2350
We're rounding third with Ride
Below the Crupper. Come up with as many old-timey terms for doing
it. Unfortunately, Greg is narrowly in third and must be red-lit.
FTW: a German amusement park was
built on the former site of a nuclear power plant! Write a
TripAdvisor review of this 3 Mile Fun Island. The winning review:
"My wife & I's local cancer cluster were just looking for a nice
day out, not a 25 min shower with a fire hose. That said, I did
enjoy the petting zoo. I never thought goats could get that big or
walk erect like men. Some lines were too long." That gives the
weekend to... JOHN HODGMAN!
Remember, today's funny becomes
Monday's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.
Tonight, three amateur chefs will use
insane ingredients and whatever's left in their fridges to come up
with awesome late-night snacks. Winner gets $1000, a place in the
Snack-Off Cookbook and the illustrious Golden Spork.
In Round 1, you have to RAID THE
KITCHEN for whatever you can find. You have 25 minutes to create a
dish based on this theme: leftovers from a holiday feast.
Xavi: Bomb-tons (Wontons filled
with Thanksgiving leftovers and a side of eggnog)
Lizzie: Holiday Helper (similar to what Xavi made)
Kelvin: Multi-Level Holiday Sandwich
And the only one who didn't make a
wonton-based wrap is going home. Sorry, Kelvin.
In the Final Snack-Off, our players
will have full access to Snacktopia. They will have 30 minutes to
make their signature snack, which MUST feature in some way the
Mystery Munchie. Today's Mystery Munchie... COOKIES!!!! NOM NOM
And if Lizzie copies Xavi's dish
again... there will be blood.
Xavi: The Super Baked Sandwich
(cereal-crusted chicken with cookie buns)
Lizzie: Thai Surprise (cookie-coated shrimp on top of Sriracha
IT'S JUDGMENT TIME!!! The Snack-Off
Champion.... LIZZIE?? Which means that Xavi's recipe will be in
the Snack-Off cookbook.
