The Chicago sports radio station, 670 the Score, has this AWESOME afternoon show with Boers and Bernstein. They are so funny and they have lots of funny segments, and I’m so sad that I can’t listen to them at work (too many strip club commercials). But the BEST THING that they do is called the Tournament of Bad.
Okay, so basically, they have tons of things that suck, and then everyone votes, and they narrow down the winners (er, losers I guess) tournament style.
As you can see, there have been some gems knocked out already. “Couples who sit on the same side of the booth” was knocked out by “wet socks.” Personally, I think the former is worse. i just throw my wet socks on the end of the hairdryer. No lie. Works like a charm.
Others from their tourney that made me chuckle:
Guys that say “we’re pregnant”
Wearing a jersey tucked in
Using the word “supposebly”
Anyhow, you get the point. What if!? What if I made my OWN tournament of bad? Would people play? I was thinking that between my blog readers and some of my other online friends, I might be able to get this going. OR! I might fail in complete embarrassment when no one wants to play with me. Don’t make me an embarrassed failure!
Please submit your ideas for Bad Things for a StephiCakes Tournament of Bad. Since this is a parenting blog, I’m okay with a lot of them being parenting-related. But they don’t have to be. If I can get enough good ones together this will be fun. I promise! Here are a few that just came to me to get us started:
Misplaced apostrophes (eg. “Hot Dog’s: $3.00”)
People who get really pissed about their baby’s gender
Eyes on potatoes (if I haven’t told you all about my INSANE PHOBIA of these, trust me, I will.)
So, leave your suggestions in the comments. You can add as many as you want and keep doing so until next friday, March 30th. Then I’ll try and put a bracket together. I’m going to open this up to my facebook group too and hopefully it will work out. 🙂
