I only got 50% on the robots. That sounds bad, but I usually do worse with people. :)

Robot Quiz:

I "failed" with a 44%.

I died when I got to the robot where one of the choices was "Cher."

Most of these links never work here at work (which is actually a GOOD THING)...damned Navy IT policies!

But YAAAAAAY for a Strong Bad video game!

I "passed" with 88% but I had to guess on all of the ones that looked like transformers to me, the silver gloopy one that looked like a spaceship, and I had to get K to tell me the name of the Mars rover. "Oh, that's either Opportunity or Spirit." It's nice to have a science geek (with a good memory) handy.

My favorite line from my two favorite rappers:

Yes, I know sometimes my lyrics are sexist
but you lovely bitches and hos should know I'm tryin' to correct this.

I wish *I* was the muthaflippin...

I have no idea what I got on the robot quiz. I knew most of them, but the results page refused to display.

Oh, my. I just watched that video.

Patti: It's from the TV show "Flight of the Conchords." They're not actually rappers (OK - that one was obvious) they're a musical comedy duo. They do stand-up but now have their own oddball "sitcom" which is mostly about their awkwardness. And their "band manager" Murray. And their one stalker groupie Mel.


Season 1 is on DVD. Later this month they release an album of songs from the series.

News alert. There is a god, and here's the proof:

Stars' 'Secret Talents' Repel Viewers, Network
Morning Edition, April 11, 2008

"After a single episode, CBS canceled its reality show Secret Talents of the Stars. If you were among the lucky 4.6 million who tuned in, you saw an actor from Star Trek sing On the Road Again. Clint Black did standup. The singer Mya tap-danced. And people turned away in droves. The sudden cancellation means we'll never see a future episode showing Danny Bonaduce's talent."

Danny Bonaduce has talent? Wow! And now I will never know what that talent is. Damn!

More Flight of the Conchords free download goodness.

Listen to 2 more amusing Flight of the Conchords songs here, or download them for your MP3 player:

"Ladies of the World" and "Business Time."

Loved the video James. I laffed. Can't play the robot quiz... I just get an empty page. Enjoyed the "how to disagree" articles. :-)

Posted by: Chuck S. at April 11, 2008 3:12 PM

I got the empty page and the empty results page, too -- just reloaded them and got the quiz and results. For anybody who's really dying to know their robot geekiness factor.

Business time is really hilarious.

81% ... my robot kung-fu is weak.

Posted by: Chuck S. at April 12, 2008 11:41 AM

Maggie - I did the refresh thing and still got a blank page. Probably a browser setting somewhere.

Patti -

I happened across "Secret Talents" as George Takei was singing "On the Road Again" wearing a hideous embroidered shirt. The commentary was funny, so we thought we'd watch to see what else happened. It started off low and went downhill from there. The only one with actual talent was Mya. Her tap-dancing was really good. She lost to a figure skater whose secret talent was contortionism. That was not a cancellation. It was a mercy killing.

Posted by: briwei at April 14, 2008 2:03 PM

Following that line of thought, I conclude there is a deficit of mercy in the microcosm of broadcast television.

Posted by: James at April 14, 2008 2:05 PM

Ugh. I don't think I could've watched Sulu sing--too cringeworthy!

Posted by: Patti M. at April 15, 2008 8:45 AM

It WAS cringeworthy, but also funny. It was entertaining in the same way that bad movies are entertaining.

Posted by: briwei at April 15, 2008 12:15 PM

I think my eyes would have been too scrunched from wincing to actually see anything.
