vodka trivia & creed


i have said before that when we would go to conventions, mike and craig and i would usually get ahold of some saying, catch phrase, line from some tv show, comedy album or whatnot, and just proceed to beat it into the ground all weekend. (last year in charlotte, it was from joe rogan's latest comedy album and we would just shout the word "jihad!' at each other...which almost got us into trouble at the airport when mike was dropping us off...)

other years included the following from the following:

"aye, mira..." "joo got some bal-loonce?" from the jerky boys
"i'm brian fellows!" from snl
"computer says 'no'." "bitty?" "that's right; ching chang chinaman." and a ton more from little britain
"that right. i farted. jealous?" from snl
"what if he's did?" from flight of the conchords

this past weekend in seattle, craig and i couldn't stop running through one of our favorite bits on last week's the office, from one of our favorite wacky guys.

creed: hey, pumpkin. we're gonna ditch this bitch. you in?
angela: no!
creed: pumpkin's out. let's go, gang!

ah, creed...

for some big fun, even if you don't watch the show, check out creed's wikipedia entry here

i laughed through the entire thing.
but then, i was also drunk.


Who knew?!!!!

1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. The stuff dissolves adhesive.

2. To clean the caulking around bathtubs and showers, fill a trigger-spray bottle with vodka, spray the caulking, let set five minutes and wash clean. The alcohol in the vodka kills mold and mildew.

3. To clean your eyeglasses, simply wipe the lenses with a soft, clean cloth dampened with vodka. The alcohol in the vodka cleans the glass and kills germs. (don't do this if your lenses have been uv protected or tinted.)

4. Prolong the life of razors by filling a cup with vodka and letting your safety razor blade soak in the alcohol after shaving.
The vodka disinfects the blade and prevents rusting.

5. Spray vodka on wine stains, scrub with a brush, and then blot dry.

6. Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.

7. Add a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from hair,
and stimulates the growth of healthy hair.

8. Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle with vodka and spray bees or wasps to kill them.

9 Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water into a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshing ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.

10. Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly packed lavender flowers, fill the jar with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set in the sun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter, then apply the tincture to aches and pains.

11. To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.

12. To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.

13 Vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting. (and i thought it was just pee)

14. Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.

15. Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.

And silly me!
All this time I've been drinking the stuff.

seems like a lotta wasted vodka to me...

Leaf said...

I agree with Alison, seems like such a waste of a fine liquor. I remember seeing the poison ivy bit on Mythbusters. They also tried it as a foot funk remover, I think. A humorous episode to be sure.

That Office exchange almost makes me wish I watched the show, but I've rarely watched any show on a regular basis since the X-Files.

My brain is too dead to even fake any answers for the Fiver. Next week! Though I'll venture a guess that number five is The Blair Witch Project.

portalcomics said...

that was a good episode of The Office last week... didja catch the season finale last night? too funny!!

anyway here's my 5FF answers...

1. the other NBC "Rachel Green(e)" was Dr. Greene's (Anthony Edwards) on ER.

2. "White Christmas" maybe? or some other Christmas song...

3. ???

4. ???

5. I believe it is "The Blair Witch Project"

that is all....

Brian said...

Glad you boys had a good time in Seattle. Nice city and a good show, but that is a long flight and it is on my Dad's birthday next year, so I probably won't be making the trek out.

Wow, tough week for the five.

1. ?

2. "Happy Birthday"

3. ?

4. ?

5. The Blair Witch Project

1. Dunno
2. Was going to say WHITE CHRISTMAS but since that's already been guessed, I'll say POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME
3. "Betcha didn't know that."
4. Todd Dezago
5. I was going to say BLAIR WITCH PROJECT too but I'll go with ONE NIGHT IN PARIS instead

Mike used to drive things into the ground when we were kids. It made me nuts. Couldn't stand it. I used to like the Texas Longhorns football team as a child and Mike would insist on calling them "Tay-Hoss" over and over because he knew it was driving me up the wall. Later, he found a sound effect in a CREEPY magazine (the sound of a switchblade popping open) and he followed me around all day going, "SNIKKT! SNIKKT!" all day long until started to cry. Thinking back on it, it's frigging hilarious but back then...

Funny how the things we can't stand about someone when we're younger often end up being their most endearing qualities.

I sprayed a bee hive in the backyard down with it's a tavern...thanx!
1. I wish I watched more tv for these types of questions.
2. In-for-mer by Snow (didn't see that one showing up, eh?)
3. no clue, well, I have clues, but none make sense (like the song I stated for #2)
4. Ha! Good one, Matt!
5. Original Night of the Living Dead, but I think everything flic back in the late 60's cost that much to make...

Seattle seemed really fun. I'd like to go to some new cons, but Seattle is a bit far.

1.) ER
2.) Yesterday? I think White Christmas is close though?
3.) 3 streets
4.) Dare I say it??? Spermologist?
5.) Has to be Blair Witch?

Cool Fiver!
