Handstands and Mohawks and Eating - Oh, My!

BEING MEAN TO NICK:
Jason and Nick keep arguing like an old, married couple recently. Ever since they went to Atlantic City together, they’ve been at each other’s throats. Is it because Jason is a jerk, or Nick’s too sensitive? … Yes. It’s tearing us apart!
DUMB QUESTION AMNESTY:
In this segment, you can ask any question you want the answer to, and no one’s allowed to laugh at you. Inspired by last night’s viewing of The Dark Knight Rises, Jason asks “what is IMAX?” Alex explained, using his degree in real life for the first time in years. Alex also wanted to know how sports games were put on hold. When they restart, is it from the beginning again or from where they left off? Jason explains that they usually pick up where they left off, but then an argument ensues about whether or not this happened in 2006 when a UT game was postponed due to lightning.
Last night Jason, Nick, and Alex were at the Dark Knight Rises sneak (Alex in costume) and engaged in Jason’s favorite pastime: ridiculous scenario debates. They discussed whether Batman would win in a fight against Darth Vader, whether George Lucas or Alfred would win in a footrace, and more. Deb had a very important question, as well: WHO CARES?!
WHOSE TWEET IS IT ANYWAY:
In this segment, we guess who tweeted what. This round was with Black-Eyed Peas. But since there’s only two important band members, Adam Lambert fills out the line-up for today with Fergie and Will.i.am. No one guessed that Will.i.am would about hating pocket tweets, but Jason took the lead by guessing that Fergie loves her man’s mohawk. Everyone knew Adam Lambert would send out a thank you to Whole Foods, but Deb redeemed herself by guessing that “Problems are nothing, dreams are something…” could only be Fergie’s handiwork. Deb wins again at second-rate trivia!
In this segment, we suggest an invention that should exist by now, like the flying car. If it exists, the first listener to e-mail us about gets a prize. Today, Jason proposed that capitalism take its toll on movie ticket prices. If a movie isn’t selling, the prices should be lowered; while popular movies should have their prices inflated. In this set-up, the new Batman would be $50 (by Dickman estimates) and the Katy Perry Movie would be around 75 cents. Then Jason started calling our movie businesses socialists and the conversation went downhill from there. I think he’s just still annoyed about paying $14.oo for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter 3D.
PET OF THE WEEK:
Every week we feature a lovely adoptable dog. This week we have a special case: Deb's own foster dog, Princes Piglet, or Piggie, if you prefer. She's extremely sweet-hearted, wanting to lick you all day long, and she comes all ready to go: fixed, trained, and happy. If you’re interested in being the forever home for this beautiful pit, email email@example.com for more information. While you’re at it go to Love-A-Bull and take a look, so we can give some other pups great new homes too.
This Sunday at Cinema East, our friends at Cheer Up Charlies are presenting a look at Amy Seimetz's new film, Sun Don't Shine. And the director herself is gonna be present to answer questions after the screening. It's just $3 at 7 PM at Yellow Jacket Stadium, and you can BYOB, which is always good.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Today she talked to the folks at Quality Granite & Marble in Wichita, KS. Deb really hit it off with the lady, saying she’d make her babysit Deb’s fake kids, and throwing around some industry terms, but the I Love You just weirded her out, in the end, and Deb received a butt-slam.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we "trivialize" Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn't know the answers. Today she had What Movie Is The Batman Quote From trivia. While we found out that Deb was pretty good at identifying the plots, characters, and actors from the different quotes, she had no idea what any of the movies were named. When in doubt, just guess that the movie's called Batman Forever...
