What's in a ...

Grocery manager Jeff at work calls me "Mark."

I never correct him, because I find it amusing when he calls me "Mark" in front of my co-workers and while I'm wearing my nametag.

Superwhat?

Kevin Spacey is Lex Luther in Superman Returns?

Suddenly I'm excited about it.

A little.

You Are Animal

A complete lunatic, you're operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you're downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
"Kill! Kill!"


You Are Barney

You could have been an intellectual leader...

Instead, your whole life is an homage to beer

You will be remembered for: your beautiful singing voice and your burps

Your life philosophy: "There's nothing like beer to give you that inflated sense of self-esteem."


You Are a Losing Lottery Ticket!

Full of hope and promise.
But in the end, a cheap letdown.


You Are a Martini

There's no other way to say it: you're a total lush.
You hold your liquor well, and you hold a lot of it!

In the office. Check phone messages...

Hello, this is Judy with [insert obscure PR company]. I called to talk to [insert name of snot-nosed writer] in charge of music editorial.

Table Tennis?!?!?


View more screenshots for Table Tennis


Table Tennis? ... TABLE TENNIS?!?!?

Thousands of dollars in developing a system and a game for "a purer, more visceral experience that simply was not previously possible."

For "Reflections on the floors and playing surface, as well as the multiple lighting sources and shadows provide an incredible amount of realism."

???

I'd have more fun playing PONG.

We sold over 700 pounds of snow crab clusters during my shift yesterday.

8 more hours today, 8 more tomorrow of $3.99/lb. crabs.

New Less Than Jake album sucks.

Even worse than the last.

This Lewis Black CD isn't that funny.

Good thing I got it for free.
