We Love to Interrupt

The DiGeorge Files

Game Show Lineup

Contact Us!

A more-than-intentional homage to "Pardon the Interruption" among others, We Love to Interrupt is an original, raw, frank, red-blooded, two-fisted, full-bodied look into the world of game shows through the eyes of two discerning fans with high standards and short fuses.

Because game show fandom is NOT a spectator sport.

Comments are always welcomed here!

Gordon: Ryan has left us for therapy. While that is going on, Chico has a new game. Ready to explain it, Chico?
Chico: Yes I am, Geoff. It's called We Love to Interrupt's VS. And it's your
classic "who's better in what" battle.
Gordon: The 8 Ball spell has left me. I can think again. Now that I have my
GSNN card back, Chico, would you like to explain the game?
Chico: We'll have six categories of two aspects each. We'll gauge those
individually and come up with a winner. Today's battle: The Benefactor's Mark Cuban vs. The Apprentice's Donald Trump.
Jason: (ding ding)
Chico: Let's get it on! First category: The Name....
Gordon: How can you not like Trump as a name? Trump in itself is used to mean to take over or to outclass. (Ad yes, I am glad that Aldo isn't here to argue the other side).
Chico: Also lent its name to one of three memorable games in 1990. The other two being The Challengers and Monopoly.
Jason: Besides, Trumpster sounds better than Cubanmeister.
Chico: This one goes to Trump (Cuban 0, Trump 1) Next: day job.
Jason: Hmmm... dealing with whiny pro athletes or dealing with whiny
Chico: Mark: Owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Donald: Owner of anything with the word Trump in it. I'd go for the athletes myself.
Gordon: I wouldn't want to stare at sweaty contractors for 2-3 hours for 82 times. Gotta go with Cuban.
Jason: Yep...ditto.
Chico: This one goes to Cuban (Cuban 1, Trump 1) Next up: The game. The Benefactor: a series of tests for 16 candidates in which one wins $1,000,000. The Apprentice: a series of tests for 18 candidates in which one wins a job with Trump.
Gordon: Hmmm looking at smart people try to win a cool job, or looking at
people grovel in a meaningless game where no one knows the rules. Let's go with the semblance of a game and Donald.
Chico: This goes back to "giving a man a fish" vs. "teaching a man to fish."
Jason: Oh come on... can you picture Trump watching someone play Jenga?
Chico: I could.. but the tower would have to be T-shaped.
Jason: And it would have to be "Trumpga" or something like that
Chico: "My game of Jenga is the best game in the world."
Jason: Human Jenga doesn't count.
Joe: How pray tell do you play that? Lots of naked women?
Jason: I hope so.
Gordon: I'll bring the Coconut Oil.
Jason: (See, I told you I'd get Gordon to the point of our censors.) :)
Gordon: Well, that wouldn't be censoring. Now if I added the pornos and the troja...
Chico: Gordon, for the 1146th time... that was NOT a challenge!
Gordon: We're keeping count, aren't we?
Jason: I passed that on to Chico when WLTI started, yes.
Chico: This one is obviously a draw. Unless of course... it isn't. I'm not
quite sure of anything. Let's give it to the Donald. (Cuban 1, Donald 2)
Gordon: Before I get this canned - next subject?
Chico: Target audiences is next. Cuban: The geeks and other counter-cultural revolutionaries... Ours included. Trump: The masses.... Anything with the masses can't be good...
Gordon: The Apprentice is going after all ages. I don't know what Cuban is
targeting. Gotta go with Trump.
Chico: This is your personal opinion, right?
Jason: Are we sure that 8-ball Stacie is targeting all ages?
Gordon: Well, you would think that they would be targeting the young
audience, but where they put The Benefactor, it isn't being shown in a good chunk of the country at the 8pm time thanks to football.
Chico: It's being shown AFTERWARDS.
Jason: which is targeting the drunk post-MNF crowd?
Gordon: Not in all of the US. On parts of the Pacific Time Zone, it's being
shifted to Tuesdays.
Chico: I didn't know that.
Gordon: I'm sure the drunk MNF crowd can't wait to see the Benefactor. Besides, I think that after football, you'd turn it to Sportscenter - especially
since there are some major baseball races going on.
Jason: I'm not sure either show has a real target audience, except for "as
many people as possible."
Chico: I still like the idea that these people know Mark Cuban for his geek
ventures... But by default, this one is a draw. So we go to the next subject: Fun Fact. With Trump, you lead your casinos into double bankruptcy. With Cuban, you lead the Dallas Mavericks into contender position.
Jason: This may sound crazy, but advantage Trump.
Chico: Care to explain that one?
Jason: Because he may be leading the casinos into the depths... but no one seems to mind.
Chico: Except comics looking for material.
Jason: Which benefits Last Comic Standing. So everyone wins!
Gordon: Well, his casinos are less than 2% of his actual wealth, while the
Mavericks, which is Cuban's pride and joy, is where most of his money is.
Chico: "I want to be just like Trump... so I can lead my casinos into double
Gordon: I gotta agree - who else can lead a whole bunch of casinos into
bankruptcy? That takes talent.
Jason: Yes, but that meant you *had* casinos to lead into double bankruptcy.
Gordon: And I still have 98% of my worth - so I can buy MORE casinos!
Chico: Looking back... That's gotta go to Trump... May be sick and sadistic,
but it's valid.
Jason: Also proves he's at least cyborg. Maybe even human.
Chico: (Cuban 1, Donald 3) Or at least Titan. Last category... the push.
Today's Push: catch phrase. Cuban: "You've just blown your shot at a million dollars."
Gordon: I personally preferred his quote of 'No Balls, No Babies'.
Jason: Yeah, that was great. LOL
Chico: In that case... Cuban: "No balls, no babies." Trump: "You're fired."
Hmmm.. Both sound equally as crushing.
Gordon: I'll have to go with Mark, just simply because its original, and we
all know where Trump's quote came from. Even before Vincent K. McMahon...
Jason: Even if I do cringe in pain when I hear Cuban say it.
Joe: Yeah, really. I like Vince's delivery of "you're fired" better myself.
Chico: I don't know. I'm a fan of brevity.
Jason: or Spacely. :)
Gordon: I remember that quote from Mr Spacely. Jetson! Yoooooooouuuuurrrre FIRED!
Jason: oh Lord...Gordon and I with the same thought. Shoot me now.
Gordon: Would you like to hold the 8 Ball, Jason?
Jason: NO!
Chico: Hold on. I gotta show this...It's an LJ icon I made...
Jason: I think Trump should do that. :)
Gordon: That's so precious
Joe: I like it.
Jason: Why do I look at that and think: "Spacely: Steamin' mad at dirt."
Gordon: Aldo is here. Let's ask Aldo - Which character does the best You're Fired - Donald Trump, Vincent McMahon or the Jetson's Mr. Spacely?
Aldo: Vincent Kennedy MCMAHON!!! "Austin........... UR FIREEEEEEEEEEDDd"
Gordon: So Trump is last with his own catchphrase - Gotta give it to Cuban.
Because he has a low opinion of George. Okay, that's VS, as Mark Cuban is literally one-upped by Donald Trump, 3-2. Coming up, the Big Finish and the Biggest Big Five... ever. How's my Trump impersonation?
Jason: Don't quit your day job, C...
Chico: Oh well. Can't win'em all. We're back after this.

one of them will have to face Jennings with Pepsi's money at stake. Special
