Sagging - Random Topics
Well, to make a token effort at defending the TSA, Mr. Scanty Pants was a lot less likely than Mr. Saggy Pants to be concealing any weapons, just by virtue of their respective attire. Not that I give a rat's rump about defending the TSA, mind you, but in the interest of intellectual honesty it needed to be said. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 29, 2011, 7:19 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
My bad on the misread, Soggy. Thanks for the catch. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 12, 2011, 7:56 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
He's being boned by flaming fish now. Justice is done. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 1, 2011, 11:43 pm

Larry Linville - Celebrities
As much of a louse as Frank Burns was, Larry Linville in real life was an all-around nice guy and one of the best people you could ever ask to work with, which has been attested to by other M*A*S*H cast members in virtually every interview/documentary about the show I've ever seen. His reason for leaving the show (that he'd done all he could with the Burns character) was completely correct and totally understandable. Linville was a true unsung hero. The contrast between his character and his real-life self reminds me of a quote from Paul McCrane (of Dr. Robert "Rocket" Romano infamy on ER): "I am not an @$$hole, I just play one on TV." I don't know whether Linville would have put it quite that way, but he certainly would have agreed with the sentiment. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on April 18, 2011, 7:41 am

WWE Friday Night Smackdown - TV Shows
Once I was surfing through the program listing, saw WWE on SciFi and that just struck me as being completely incongruous. But what PYL said explains it. Thanks for the info! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 24, 2011, 6:40 am

Gilbert Gottfried - Celebrities
Getting himself in the news and talked about? Yeah, that's working out about as well for for Gottfried as it did for Char-brained Sheen (although at least Gottfried's only being called an asshole rather than a druggie perv asshole). -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 16, 2011, 7:17 am

Pauly Shore - Celebrities
I'm with BigAl. Encino Man is about as much Pauly Shore as I can stand. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 29, 2011, 5:54 pm

Tila Tequila - Celebrities
SSM: Pretty much. And more specifically in Tila's case, for boning anything that walks regardless of whether it's got a pole or a hole. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 17, 2011, 6:26 am

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - TV Shows
Zimpy -- You're blaming the show for the station's decision to cancel it? Doesn't sound fair. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 3, 2011, 6:59 am

IT Department At Any Company, The - Random Topics
A name change can make a big difference in how something's perceived; look up the term "unfortunate acronym" sometime. The FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit was at one time called the Behavioral Sciences Unit. Its name was changed to "Investigative Support Unit," literally in order to take the BS out of profiling. Since profiling in those days was considered by some to be a witch-doctor-style art rather than a serious investigative tool, the name change made a big difference in how it was perceived -- and received, when the agents were called in to assist on a case. Anyway, point being, you can't blame those IT guys for not wanting to be called "EUSC" or "You suck." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 27, 2010, 7:52 am

Courtship of Eddie's Father, The - TV Shows
Another of those TV staples; the precociously cute kid stealing every scene from experienced actors. Sickeningly sweet. When will producers learn that this never works?! Ever! -- Comment Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 12:23 am (transferred after deleting duplicate listing) -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 18, 2010, 7:01 am

Snopes - Websites
LoriV: It's not fair to blame Snopes for the brain-cell-deficient rumor-spreaders who think that putting Snopes' imprimatur on their BS makes it more credible. Snopes Rocks! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 15, 2010, 6:49 am

HeadOn - Random Topics
The ads are annoying in the extreme, no doubt. All the same, I've gotta give some props to these folks for having the sense of humor to poke fun at themselves in later ads: "Head On! I hate your commercials, but I love your product!" -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 11, 2010, 8:50 am

Vuvuzela - Random Topics
It's not just the noise / nuisance factor ... the name sounds like it should refer to a female body part! If I didn't know any different and heard a guy saying he got a vuvuzela, I'd be inclined to ask if it was the result of surgery or a purchase from an "adult" gift shop. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 1, 2010, 6:34 pm

Go Daddy - Websites
The steamy ads backfired as far as GoDaddy's public image was concerned. A few years ago at work, we needed to register a subdomain, and GoDaddy was the best choice for what we needed. When I told my boss (who would actually be making the online purchase) that he needed to visit GoDaddy to get it taken care of, he reacted as though I'd gone off my rocker and was telling him to visit a prostitute. I'm kind of wondering if someday there's going to be a site called MacDaddy.com, with "a subsidiary of GoDaddy" somewhere in the fine print. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 28, 2010, 7:08 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
@Tobywaud: The reason for TNG reverse-boning was that Gene Roddenberry was extensively involved with TNG for the first season, less so after that, and eventually not involved at all (of course) as he died in 1991. Roddenberry had a knack for injecting his personal agenda into his projects (similar to Alan Alda during the later seasons of M*A*S*H), sometimes to such an extent that it's a wonder that any quality TV came out of the mix at all. The less involved Roddenberry became with TNG, the better the show got. Plain and simple. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 28, 2010, 6:58 am

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
Good point, Veritech, and in the interest of honest discussion I've added "Day One" as a reason. My personal vote, however, is for "Still Rocks." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 19, 2010, 11:07 pm

My Three Sons - TV Shows
@JustLooking: It's been looked at already. There WAS a huge amount of anti-Dawn-Lyn vote-stacking going on, which is how the Dodie vote count got so high to start with. The loophole which allowed the stacking was plugged, and a number of the reasons with inflated vote counts were removed (on various other shows where Dawn Lyn appeared), but some traces still remain, such as the Dodie votes. I wasn't involved in the cleanup process, so I don't know what (if anything) can be done about the Dodie vote count. If one of the other moderators/admins could chime in with some info, that would be great. Thanks, guys! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 18, 2010, 6:56 am

X-Men - Movie Series
@octogrlpretty: The "real-life" explanation for Nightcrawler not being in X3 was that the makeup process took hours, and Alan Cumming (who played Nightcrawler in X2) didn't care for the makeup. Given that Nightcrawler would only have gotten minimal screen time in X3, the crew didn't figure it was worth the trouble to put him in, so Nightcrawler was dropped from the third movie. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 18, 2010, 6:48 am

Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) - Random Topics
I thought it was Oxygen that was the archtypical male-bashing network? Not that I'm arguing with anything anyone's said about Lifetime movies. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 15, 2010, 12:47 pm
