Smile break!

14 Nov

Check out this compilation of Princess Bride references thrown into last Friday’s ESPN NFL Kickoff. The best part is how straight-faced the hosts remain as they say things like “The Jets are trying to pretend the Seahawks don’t have COUSs, Corners of Unusual Size.”

Picture in your head Guy Fieri’s rage as he makes his way through this New York Times review of his new Times Square eatery. Highlights include:

“Hey, did you try that blue drink, the one that glows like nuclear waste? The watermelon margarita? Any idea why it tastes like some combination of radiator fluid and formaldehyde?”

and “Is the entire restaurant a very expensive piece of conceptual art? Is the shapeless, structureless baked alaska that droops and slumps and collapses while you eat it, or don’t eat it, supposed to be a representation in sugar and eggs of the experience of going insane?”

And imagine what your LSAT prep instructor might have said if you answered a logic game like Randall Monroe of xkcd:

And big thanks to Effie, Molly, and Friend Who Has Yet to Pick an Amazonian Name for knowing exactly what I want to find in my inbox upon waking.
