Retro Review: About Last Night... (1986)

I had never heard of this movie. It was on my Netflix queue and I forgot why I put it there but it was next on the list so I gave it a whirl. I decided to take a gander on IMDb to see how it was reviewed before I actually watched it. I am obsessed with IMDb, it's my favorite application on my ipod. It didn't seem that promising from what I saw on IMDb, it got a 5.8 out of 10. I wasn't going to send it back now so I popped it in to the XBOX 360 and got into movie mode.

It started off on the right track. Oh wait, before I start rambling I should tell you a little about it. It stars Rob Lowe as Danny, James Belushi as Danny's BF Bernie, Demi Moore as Danny's love interest Debbie and Elizabeth Perkins as Debbie's BF Joan. It was Edward Zwick's directorial debut. You might have seen his other work: Defiance, Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai, The Siege, Courage Under Fire and my favorite Legends of the Fall. If you have not seen LOTF, I highly recommend it.

The film starts off with Danny and Bernie talking about a sexual encounter that Bernie had that involved some kinky shit. They talk about it everywhere, on the bus, at the bar, they don't care. Bernie is blatantly loud and sexually explicit and doesn't care. James Belushi plays a great 'sidekick'. James Belushi looks pretty much the same then as he does now. I like Belushi in According to Jim. Any body watch that show? I catch reruns on TBS. It's pretty funny and he has a hot wife. You know what I have come to realize? There are a lot of shows that have a chubby/fat husband and a hot wife. There is The King of Queens, According to Jim, Still Standing, and I know there are more but I can't think of them right now.

I don't want to bore you with the plot, that's not my style. These are in fact, 'reviews you can't use' so it wouldn't make sense for me to actually explain what happens in the movie. My job is to humorously tell you what I did and didn't like about the film.

If you are a guy such as myself, wait.... okay yes I am in fact a guy, I was just double checking, you will enjoy Demi Moore's sexy voice and some nudity as well. If you are female or a gay man (I don't want to leave any one out) you might enjoy Rob Lowe's bare ass. I am neither a female nor a gay man so I didn't enjoy his ass as much as I could have.

At one point, Danny and Debbie are at a diner and Danny goes behind the counter and pours his own coffee. I want to hang out at a place like that. People are too uppity nowadays and that would probably not happen.

How come when I watch movies the music and background noise are always ten times as loud as the dialogue? I always have to fiddle with the sound, turning it down and then back up and it drives me crazy!! I don't think it's just my tv because it happens at Nicole's house too.

My favorite line: "He doesn't make me sleep in the wet spot."

Most confusing line: "I feel like a fire hydrant that's been pissed on."

All in all I enjoyed the movie more than I thought I would. I think they could of cut it down a little. It did seem to drag at some points. I think About Last Night is underrated. I recommend it if you live funny love stories from the 80's, I mean who doesn't? The 80's are awesome, back me up on this one Ally.

Weird Laws: Part Se7en

Before I show you some odd and humorous laws, I have a few announcements. First, Pat from Pat Tillett bestowed a new award on me. It is called The White Russian Award, now bask in it's glory!!



If you haven't visited Pat's blog than shame on you. It is full of great life stories and awesome pictures. Click here to go check it out, then come back to read the rest of my post.

Secondly, I wasn't even paying attention but I hit 300 posts at the beginning of this week!! Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday that I was talking about my 200th post. I will post something special next week for my 300th post of awesomeness.

Now onto the next installment of The Weird Laws of the U.S.

NEW MEXICO

It is illegal for idiots to vote. This is the best law by far. So Georg W. Bush can become president but he can't vote?

In Deming it is illegal to spit on the steps of a public building. Where are the hobos suppose to hock their liquor loogies?

NEW YORK

In Sag Harbor it is illegal to disrobe in any wagon or automobile. Just robes? I can take off my pants and underwear, right?

In Sag Harbor it is illegal to bathe unless wearing a bathing suit or covering. Would a sock covering you-know-where count as a covering?

NORTH CAROLINA

It is illegal to be a professional fortune teller. Good thing I'm only an amateur and don't have my fortune teller license yet.

It is illegal to serve alcohol at a bingo game. You know how rowdy those senior citizens can be when they have had to many Irish Car Bombs.

NORTH DAKOTA

In Devils Lake it is illegal to set off fireworks after 11 p.m. What if I light the fireworks at 10:59:50 and they go off after 11, are they going to be strict about that?

OHIO

In Akron it is illegal to display colored chicks for sale. This sounds racist. I'm not sure if they mean women, chicken or peeps.

In Canton it is illegal to maintain an electrical fence. How else am I suppose to keep out all the wild ostriches?

OKLAHOMA

Until late 2006 tattoos were illegal in Oklahoma. If you got caught giving or having one, what was the sentence? Was there a fine? Jail time? Or sand blast it off?

It is illegal to promote a "horse tripping" event. Is this similar to cow tipping?

OREGON

It is illegal to test ones driving endurance on a highway. Take that Dale Earnhardt Jr.

It is illegal to leave your car door open longer than is needed. "So what are you in the slammer for? "I left my car door open 2 minutes too long, I got 6 years."

The Battle of the Game Show Hosts: Semi Finals: Round 2 needs more votes. Go vote if you haven't yet. Polls close in 2 days. Click HERE to cast your vote.

Rare Interview

I think that Jaws gets a bad rap. We don't know what was going on in his life. We all just assume he's an evil shark bent on killing innocent people. We don't know the truth....... until now. I recently found a rare interview with Jaws' wife after his untimely death. Never before released to the public.

Reporter Neil Blacksmith & Jaws' Wife

I am sorry for your loss Mrs. Jaws

Thank you Neil, you can call me Marg.

Marg, I apologize in advance if my questions are blunt but people need to know things.

That's quite alright. Ask whatever you want.

Did you know your husband was a serial killer?

How dare you call him that!! He was a good fish, he didn't deserve what he got (starts to tear).

How was he a good fish? He murdered innocent people.

You don't know what he was going through. He was recently diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia with multiple personalities. He didn't know what he was doing half the time.

Please, continue.

He was such a gentle husband and father. He never hurt anybody for any reason. He would come home with blood all over him with an arm or a leg hanging out of his mouth and he had no idea what happened. He didn't know he was killing people. His other personality was doing it. I named his other half Lenny. We didn't know what to do. We couldn't go to the police, they would just lock him up or throw him in the loony bin. We thought the problem would just go away on it's own but it just ended up getting worse. What would you have done?

I'm sorry, what was the question? Your cleavage is distracting me.

You perv!! You track me down to interview me and then you stare at my chest? Is this how you do all your interviews?

Well... yeah, if the person/fish I'm interviewing has big boobs and is wearing a skimpy top. Don't get mad at me, I'm just a guy.

You best be glad that my eldest son isn't here or he would tear off your arms off (grabs her jacket and covers herself up). Now can you concentrate?

Yes, I'm sorry, can we continue with the interview? (nonchalantly conceals his massive erection).

I suppose so...... I hated that Quint, he got what he deserved. I would of ate him if my husband didn't. He was such an asshole. I am still trying to track down Chief Brody. I am going to enjoy eating him little by little (licking her lips and showing her teeth). I'm starting to get hungry.

What's for dinner? I'm pretty hun......... CHOMP!

(son enters the room) Mom, where's that reporter? I wanted to talk to him about dad.

I don't know what he's doing now but in a few hours he will be digesting.

Mom!?!? Again? That's 2 reporters this week!

What the hell do you expect? I'm a great white shark. I'd eat you if you weren't my son.

Stuff I love about Nicole

Here are some random things I love about Nicole, my fiancee. They are in no particular order.

1) Her laugh

2) That she comes over after work around midnight just to sleep with me for a couple hours to then go home

3) Her beautiful eyes

4) The way she uses her sexuality to grab my attention

5) Her great smile

6) The affectionate tone of her voice

7) Her undying determination to be a nurse

8) The taste of her kiss

9) Pushing me to go to school

10) The way she lays on my chest when we cuddle

11) Putting up with my sarcasm

12) Wanting to start a family with me

13) The way she says goodbye

14) About a thousand other things

Battle of the Game Show Hosts: Semi Finals: Round 2

Bob Barker showed no mercy for Marc Summers in last week's battle. Bob won 8 votes to 3. Marc hired Happy Gilmore to take out Bob with a chair but Bob was ready and knocked him out with some Plinko chips. After his loss Marc was forced to watch Freddy Got Fingered with live commentary from Tom Green for cheating.

The next battle is almost underway. This is the last battle before the final battle folks. Who will face Bob Barker? Okay there is the bell. Where is Chuck Woolery? I'm told he ate some bad fish tacos and has been in the bathroom for the past 15 minutes. While we are waiting let's talk with Pat Sajak.

Are you ready for this fight Pat?

I was born ready. I have a hypothetical question. Let's say I poisoned Chuck's tacos, would that be grounds for disqualification?

Most definitely Pat. That's rule number 23 in the rule book. Did you poison his tacos?

No, no, no. I was just curious..... I need to find that antidote.

What's that?

Ummm, nothing, never mind. (Pat runs off mumbling)

Ok, Chuck is finally out of the bathroom. He doesn't look so hot. Let's see if we can get a word before he enters the ring.

How you feeling Chuck?

Not to good. No more eating food I find on the floor.

I don't want to hear anymore. Go get in the ring.

Pat Sajak




Things you didn't know about Chuck:

- Cut and styled his mullet when he was younger

The Invention of Lying Review

I saw Iron Man 2 yesterday but I am not going to review it. Everyone and their 'touches me inappropriately' uncle has seen it and reviewed it. I liked the movie, let's move on.

I am hear to review the underrated movie 'The Invention of Lying,' directed by Ricky Cervais. As I remember this film did not get good reviews. I remembered that I wanted to see it regardless of the reviews so I threw it on the ol' Netflix queue. I went into this movie thinking it was going to be bad or just okay. To my surprise, I thought it was fantastic. It was funny and had an original plot and idea. I normally don't discuss plots because you can read those on IMDb but I will give you a little taste.

It is about a world were lying doesn't exist. People only know how to tell the truth and be brutally honest which creates amusing lines and scenarios. Ricky Cervais' character Mark learns how to lie and is the only one that knows how to. Since nobody knows what lying is, they believe everything he says and hilarity ensues. The rest of the cast includes, Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe, Tina Fey, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Bateman, Edward Norton, and Louis C.K.

The people that vote on IMDb gave this flick a 6.5 out of 10. I disagree with these hooligans. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It is filled with simple humor and I was actually laughing out loud. I think if I watched it with someone I would of laughed harder. Why is it that comedies are funnier when watched with other people? I love when I think a movie is going to be bad and it totally catches me off guard. I would love to share some humorous lines with you but I don't want to ruin it for anyone that is actually going to see it. There is also a love interest between Garner and Cervais.

I did not recognize Edward Norton in this movie. He has a small part as a cop that pulls over Louis C.K. for driving drunk. He has a porn 'stache and rocks an accent. When I saw his name in the credits and double back to the scene to watch it again. It was funnier when I knew it was him.

If you value my opinion at all you will see this movie and give me your honest opinion. I want to know if I am the only person to think this movie is better than the rating it got. If you see it I will give you candy.

Wedding stuff and kids

Last Thursday, Nicole and I visited another place to possibly have our wedding. It's a castle-like Hotel called Hotel Thayer or The Thayer Hotel (either one works I guess). If you live near the Hudson Valley in New York, you have probably heard of it. It's located in West Point, NY, right on the military base. There are some security check points to go through to enter the premises (ID checks and search of the car). The hotel was built on the side of a mountain so it has a great view. It is made of stone and looks like the Queen might live there. It has a great big lobby and definitely makes you feel insignificant. The ball rooms are big and elegant. Nicole took pictures of the inside with her camera. I wish I was smart enough to think to upload them but I wasn't. Maybe I will do a follow up post with just the pics.






This place also had an amazing view, right on the river. The only issue is only one of the banquet rooms is accessible to the outside lawn where the ceremony would be. The other room would require us to get married inside. I like the idea of getting married outside. The room connected to the outside has a low ceiling compared to the other one that has a nice high ceiling. Things to think about. The woman that was giving us the tour was much more enthusiastic than the woman from the last place. Also the woman from the other place had a cold and she was nasally and annoying. The price per plate was a little cheaper than Beckwithe Point, about $120 a plate. The problem is that Hotel Thayer just changed chefs and they don't know what their menu will look like in 2012, and also the pricing might change. It was a nice place but didn't give us the wow factor. We are still going to look at other venues.

Now a change of subject to something different. I have been thinking about kids more and more lately. I never really thought about having kids that much until I met Nicole and realized I wanted to be with her forever. When I was 20, I thought kids were cute but they didn't make me think about my own future rugrats. Nicole and I were at Mavis the other days getting tires for my tricycle..... I mean, our car. A father came in with his 3 little girls. Two of them were very young, just learning how to talk and making no sense. The other was a little older. These kids were so cute, just eating their Mickey Dees and being happy about nothing. I want some cute kids, dammit. I want to be a father, seems like fun. Can I get them already potty trained? Nicole will have to be on diaper control, I don't like doo-doo. She works in a hospital and cleans up old people so she is more experienced for the job and has better credentials.

I think I will make a great dad. I would tell my kids the truth. If they ask me a question like where do babies come from, I am going to tell them the truth. Where did the stork come from anyway? Has anybody ever actually seen a real stork? I would play with them all the time. I love kids' toys, blocks, cars, books, things with lights and sounds, I'm all over it. You know what I still love? The Highlights magazine that you find at the dentist or doctor's office. I used to read them when I was younger and I still enjoy them. I love to make kids laugh. That is one of the best feelings in the world and it's so easy. Just making a funny face or sound makes them giggle. I love sticking my tongue out at random kids to make them smile. Not in a creepy way. Like if I'm waiting in line and the person is front of me is holding their kid over their shoulder and the kid is looking at me. I'm obligated to entertain them and myself while we are in line. I wanted to play with the kids in Mavis but I thought it might have been creepy so I just asked the little girl if her cookie was tasty. She said something that I couldn't decipher but I understood the big smile. Kids are great and I can't wait to have a bunch with Nicole.

THIS IS THE LAST ROUND OF THE MOVIE GAME FOR THIS SERIES!! Nippy has been on top for way too long. I am adding some bonus questions to this round so almost anyone can win the grand prize. Please only EMAIL me your answers. No putting answers in a comment, don't ruin it for everyone else. Email answers to reviewsyoucantuse@gmail.com.

I present you with two movies, for example: Independence Day and U.S. Marshalls. The object of the game is to link them together using another movie by connecting the actors/actresses. The link in this case is Men In Black using Will Smith from Independence Day and Tommy Lee Jones from U.S. Marshalls. Now they all aren't this easy and sometimes there are multiple answers. The questions range from easy to hard and sometimes I like to throw in a challenging one to test those true movie buffs. You earn points for correct answers and I keep track of every one's points on the side of my blog. There is going to be a prize awarded to the winner. GOOD LUCK!!

Easy - Link: Analyze This & There's Something About Mary

Battle of the Game Show Hosts: Semi Finals: Round 1

We are down to the final four contestants. We are so close to a winner, I can taste it. It tastes like butterscotch and a cigar mixed together. In the last round Alex Trebek got trounced by Pat Sajak. Trebek didn't have a chance. Sean Connery was going to help Sajak win by putting a beehive filled with angry bees down Trebek's pants but Sajak didn't need any extra help. After Sajak won, Connery put the beehive in Trebek's limo. He was heard by fans saying "Suck it Trebek."

Are you ready for the next round? I can't hear you. Okay, I stopped vacuuming, what did you say? I hope you are all wearing your battle bracelets that I made you. Here comes the next round.

Bob Barker
vs

Marc Summers





Backstage Comments:

"I'd rather fight that four-eyed nerd Drew Carey, he doesn't deserve to host my show."

"I had sex with Marc Summers' mom, aunt and sister all in the same night."

"Richard Dawson murdered Rod Roddy, I have proof."

"I am not allowed within 100 feet of Vanna White."

"That Powdered Toast Man is the shit, have you read his blog?"




Backstage Comments:

"I thought Bob Barker died."

"Anybody want a pickle pop? I'm buying."

"Why does it smell like butterscotch cigars?"

"I took a dump in Barker's limo"

"I was offered the role of Iron Man but I turned it down because Abe Vigoda said it was a bad idea."

Time to cast your votes. I am only accepting bribes in the form of purple or blue marshmallow peeps. And no flash photography, Marc is easily frightened. Polls close Sunday at 11:59 pm. The next round of the semi finals between Chuck Woolery and Pat Sajak will happen next Tuesday, don't miss it.

Without using the letter 'E' (except in the title here)

I thought about writing this post on many occasions. It is difficult to brainstorm an original thought without applying that unambiguous symbol. Try it right now, think of any formation of words without that symbol. Hard, right? Now think how hard it would be to construct a thorough and continuous post without that symbol. I was having author's block during my brainstorming about this post. It should contain humor, random thoughts, originality, thought provoking, a post to talk about at an H20 apparatus and damn right phantasmagorical. I am thinking about what to concoct as I push all sorts of symbols on this plastic pad of random marks and symbols.

How about a quick nostalgic analysis?

DARKWING DUCK

I had a fancy for Darkwing Duck . That cartoon IS kick-ass. It's first affair was back in that 9th month of 1991. It ran for four minus uno occasions, from '91 to '93. Go on you know you want to sing that Darkwing song. Put your arm in the air if you would want Launchpad McQuack as your trusty crony. I spot with my orbitals that most of you do. I am going to call my first son Lauchpad. What a fantastic monogram. My son would automatically turn into a pilot with that tag. I want a job as Darkwing Duck. That duck has loads of fun. I wish to own DVD's of that cartoon. My b-day is July 14th if anybody is blurry on what to buy P-Toast Man. I am not on a blu-ray wagon up to now, soon though.

Who was Darkwing Duck? Did Darkwing hold similar blood with a distinct duck family? McDucks? How did Lauchpad go from that particular duck show, DuckSagas (wink wink) to Darkwing Duck? Did Launchpad attain a boot out? I fancy solutions and justification!! I miss old cartoons. Nowadays' cartoons do not stack up to particular toons of my youth. Cartoons kind of suck now. Mr. Straight-Rhombus-pants is of the not many omissions of nowadays' cartoons.

Okay that is all I got for this post. It was difficult and took a long duration. But it was fun. I might try it again. If you find any of that symbol I could not apply, point it out to muah. I await your input.

What you long to catch with your audio organs...



Trivia Corner Reboot #5

I hope everyone had a phantasmagorical weekend. Finals are done and school is over until next semester in September, yay!! Okay, sharpen those pencils and adjust your thinking caps, it's time for Monday Trivia.

RULES: I will only accept EMAILS, do not post your answers in a comment. Let everyone have a fair shot at guessing the answer. You are welcome to leave comments as long as you don't write any answers in there. Email answers to Reviewsyoucantuse@gmail.com No cheating!! Using the Internet takes the fun out of the game. Have fun!

You earn points for correct answers. They are tallied on the side bar (left side). The winner gets their very own blog post written about them by me. Just ask Asblackasobama about his prize, go ahead don't be shy. Actually read the trivia first, send in your answers then you can ask him.

1) How many chemical elements on the periodic table are represented by a single letter? (worth 2 points)

a) 3
b) 22
c) 41
d) 0
e) 14


2) When baseball phenom Barry Bonds joined the San Francisco Giants in 1993, he wore a size 42 uniform jersey. What size was the scandal-tainted slugger wearing ten years later?
(worth 4 points)


3) Where on your body is there a helix and an antihelix?
(worth 5 points)

There are only 5 more rounds of Trivia Corner Reboot left. Chalk up your points now before you fall too far behind the leaders. Will someone overthrow Jerry this week? It could be you, no, not you, the person behind you with the blue shirt, yeah you!

Here's the Scoop

I haven't posted that much this week. I have been busy working and studying for finals and whatnot. I haven't really visited anybody's blog or commented on anything. I apologize for that. I know I have probably missed some great posts and I will never catch up if I go back to read them all. I had planned on posting some stuff today about wedding stuff and my post without using the letter 'E' but I have a sudden case of writer's block. This hasn't happened since December. I don't just want to rush a post just to write something, those never come out the way you want them too.

I will make up for my lack of posts this week with some great stuff next week. Now that school is over for this semester I don't have to worry about doing homework. I will use this weekend to brainstorm my ideas and make what I want to write about worthwhile. I will tell you that Nicole and I took a gander at another place for our wedding. I will tell you about that in more detail next week. I know Ally @ Fourth Grade Nothing is dying to hear about our wedding plans.

Have a great weekend everyone. Do stuff I probably might do on a dare.

Retro Post: If I had a nickel...

... for every time someone thought that my tattoo was “spider-man”, I would have enough money to get another tattoo under it that says “this is not spider-man, do not ask if it is.” Well I guess I can’t be surprised about it, the general population is uneducated on superhero/comic book symbols and knowledge. I’m seriously considering getting a tattoo on my other arm of the spider-man spider just so I can have visual evidence of the differences between them all the time.
My ink is the logo from the band COLD, unfortunately they have broken up. I didn’t do it for the band, I’m not a die hard fan (If you're thinking Bruce Willis, I love the movie). I got the tattoo because I liked the spider and figured not many people knew of the band. Also in 20 years when no one remembers the band it will just be a kick ass arachnid.
In truth my favorite band is Green Day but I wouldn’t get a tattoo of them for that reason, that’s dumb. I get pretty peeved when people such as u, probably, think my tat is Tobey Maguire’s secret identity. I’d compare it to asking a fat woman if she is pregnant, you never get a good reaction out of that question.
So for all of u folks that haven’t seen the movie, read the comics or watched the cartoon, it’s time to learn some useless knowledge. I mean right now or the next time someone is gonna get punched in the baby maker.

Battle of the Game Show Hosts: 4th Round

Welcome back! It feels like ages since the last duel. Do you want to know who won the last round? Do you even remember who was battling? No, it was not Ross Perot versus Al Gore. They aren't even game show hosts. It was Chuck Woolery versus Dick Clark. I thought this match would come down to the wire like the 1st round but it was a TKO by Chuck. Dick didn't have a fighting chance. The fact that Dick is part robot didn't help him this time.

This round should be a juicy one. It features two long time running hosts of respectable game shows. Instead of just duking it out like we have been doing, we were going to have the next contestants jell-o wrestle but one of them is allergic to Bill Cosby. Judge Mills Lane will be guest refereeing today. "Now, I want a good clean fight, let's get it on." "Thanks Milly. You don't like being called Milly? It sounds girly? It's your gam-gams name?" Let's get the next round going while I apologize to Mr. Lane.

ALEX TREBEK
vs

PAT SAJAK




Hostings: The Wizard of Odds (1973-74), High Rollers (1974-76 & 1978-80), Double Dare (1976-77), The $128,000 Question (1977-78), Pitfall (1981-82), Battlestars (1981-82 & 1983), Jeopardy!/Super Jeopardy! (1984-present), Classic Concentration (1987-94), To Tell the Truth (1991)
Most Hated Animal: Giraffe, he thinks that long neck isn't natural
Alternate Middle Name: Reginald
Favorite Appetizer: Texas Cheese Fries from Chilis
Male Celebrity He Would Marry If He Was Gay: Clone of himself
Biggest Accomplishment In Life: Growing a mustache
Beef With Pat Sajak: Gave his number to Pat to give to Vanna and he never did




Hostings: Wheel of Fortune (1981-present)
Most Hated Animal: Flamingo, gave him some bad advice
Alternate Middle Name: Beatrice
Favorite Appetizer: He wants to know if the free bread counts
Male Celebrity He Would Marry If He Was Gay: Alex Trebek but only with the 'stache
Biggest Accomplishment In Life: Not being susceptible to Vanna's seductive letter turning
Beef With Alex Trebek: He promised after he shaved his mustache he would give it to Pat but he didn't, he gave it to Richard Dawson


It's now up to you folks. Cast your votes. I have advised both challengers to not accept bribes or candy. I on the other hand accept both, especially candy. Polls will close on Sunday at 11:59 PM. The first round of the semi finals will take place next Tuesday. I know I'm excited.

FYI & UPDATE & STUFF




Three weeks ago Tuppence @ Tuppenny Tales awarded me with the Sunshine Blogger award and I totally forgot to post it. Thank you Tuppence for the fantastic award and I'm sorry for forgetting about it. Go check out her blog if you haven't already. Why you ask? Because I said so (that always worked when your mom or dad said it).


I apologize for not having my post 'without using the letter E' up already. I was going to do it this past week but it totally slipped my mine. I will definitely work on it next week and have it up at some point. It's a tough one to write.

I have an English paper, other HW and studying for finals to do this weekend so I won't be reading anybody's posts nor commenting. If you receive a comment from me this weekend please reply to it with: GET BACK TO STUDYING!!! Thank you. I will hopefully be back on Monday to catch up on the awesome blogs that I read.

Voting for the Battle of the Game Show Hosts: 3rd Round ends Sunday night. If you still have not voted go HERE, we need more votes to announce an official winner.

Weird Laws: Part (5x2)-4=6

Here is the next installment of the Weird Laws of the U.S


MISSOURI

In Perryville it is illegal to injure any bird within city limits. How else am I suppose to get my chicken nuggets?

It is illegal for a bar owner to let people drink on his premises between 2 am and 6 am. Sir, this flask is filled with milk, I would never think to disobey the law.

MONTANA

In Billings it is illegal to raise rats as pets. I already have 4 turtles, I was hoping one of the rats could teach them martial arts. I'd call him Splinter.

It is illegal to pretend to abuse an animal in the presence of a minor. Son, I have to kick the shit out of this dog, I'm not allowed to pretend.

NEBRASKA

It is illegal to pilot a plane while drunk. This one doesn't seem weird to me. Who is mixing normal laws in with my weird ones?

It is against the law to marry if you have an STD. Beware of all the single ladies.

NEVADA

In Reno it is illegal to lay down on a sidewalk. That is the best place to take a nap after a long night of gambling.

It is illegal to place a chair or bench on any street. I like to play musical chairs, Russian roulette style.

NEW HAMPSHIRE

It is illegal to check into a hotel under a false name. I guess I have to stop using the name Seymour Buttz.

It is illegal to take seaweed off of the beach at night. You don't want to piss off Aquaman.

NEW JERSEY

It is illegal to sell handcuffs to someone under 18. Too many kinky teenagers in Jersey.

It is illegal to wear a bullet-proof vest while murdering someone. Because that would just be totally unfair to your victim.

Go vote on the Battle of the Game Show Hosts: 3rd Round if you haven't already. It was Tuesdays post. We need more votes!!
