Scumbag Millionaire

In light of last night's G:TB-supported Oscar winner, the rags-to-riches tale Slumdog Millionaire, we thought we'd play our own version of the now (in)famous game show. Ours will, of course, be slightly more topical and significantly less successful. Moreover, unlike Slumdog, it will not feature the stylings of this near-Caucasian rapperista:



Oh and, like G:TB's CEO, Rob, our "Millionaire" will be...... condensed.

Which one of these headlines implies the work of a sound baseball organization?

A) "Federal investigators probe rampant signing bonus skimming of team's Latin American players."
B) " Team releases previous year's opening day starter after he refuses MINOR league contract offer."
C) "Team Coach put on indefinite leave after reported contract fraud involving pitching prospect".
D) "Team celebrates former Comeback Player of the Year's impressive weight-loss."

Answer: Technically, D

Dennis, I know you're hot for M.I.A.'s chili, but she needs to tip her cap a bit more to Strummer/Jones/Simonon/Headon and . . . yes, Wreckx-N-Effect. Haven't heard her once give credit to the folks who wrote/played the music that comprised 90% of the creativity of "her" Grammy-nominated song.

random question: have you guys seen that phone service commercial when the chick is riding the bicycle made for two and her super-long armpit hair is flying in the face of the guy on the bike with her? That commercial is so gross, it seriously make me gag every time its on. Just needed to say that.

Sounds like Shlara was watching The Bachelor special, where that ad ran about 10 minutes ago. So I've heard...

Yes I am Rhyme. And I'm doing a running diary like when the Sports Guy comments on the NBA draft. These women are CRAZY--which always makes good TV.

The wife sucked me into it for a bit. I'm happy for Landon Donovan, and I hope he finds his wife.

I appear to have missed the least exciting half of NBA basketball this season. Knicks vs. Pacers has not been riveting.

Shlara said...

Don't lie Ryhme. You've been watching the whole season. And you even know about the big scandal coming next week b/c you read the blogs too.

Oklahoma-Kansas is bringing the heat right now.
