    aditi- you are on the right track... but for you to win the grand prize of... well... the grand prize... which is.... er, well, you can say you won... you have to tell me the name...

    so there is the third clue. they watched old movies.... b-movies that really sucked, and they made fun of them...

    any one know the name?

    i am a big dork, i guess, but i loved that show, cuz that is exactly what me and my dad would do, sit up and make fun of stupid movies on cable... lol.

    much love :)

    ...my gratitude for not being the only dork who loved that show!

    well, i liked the original series with Joel... the other guy that came later... he just wasn't funny. he was too bright. but joel always looked so damned stoned!

    much love :)

    There is this one line that i remember from Mystery science, I used it all the time... i cant remember which one said it though but it was great....

    "You think you're hot snot on a golden platter, but all you are is a cold stale booger on a paper plate"

    HAHAHAHA that made me laugh forever, it still brings a tear to my eye....

    shit, my dad used to use that line on me when i was a kiddy kid. oldie but goodie.

    these were some more of his favorites:

    "you couldn't whoop tom thumb with a sledge hammer."

    "Does your face hurt?"
    "No."
    "Well, it's killing me."

    and my grandpa, mean old drunk that he was, had the best ones for when he sent you to look for something and you couldn't find it:

    "you couldn't find your ass with a handful of fishhooks."

    and my all time favorite:

    "if you had it up your ass you would know where it was at!"

    lol. don't get the wrong idea though. quite the loving family we are, we are.

    much love :)

    hehehe ...
    I just remembered it from Mystery Science and just thought it was so funny, if I would have heard it from someone in person, that would have been even better especially if it was my dad, that would have been such a classic moment.
