The Latest Announcements

Major League (SE) - April 10

Often times while watching MAJOR LEAGUE in a drunken funk, me and my friends (which consists of my dead mom and a cat) will assign ourselves two characters and recite every line that is said by the characters. If you flub a line, you have a shot. If you completely miss a line, you have two shots. If you pass out before the movie, you get gang signs and swastikas written on you with a Sharpie. This "Wild Thing Edition" supposedly comes with a "turf cover", but don't try to smoke it. Actually, go ahead and let me know if that works.

BOBBY, the greatest movie of all time with the greatest cast of all time, directed by......the guy who directed MEN AT WORK (wah, wah, wahhhhh).

Caption the Pic Winner!!!

Congratulations to Schmoe Zagorakis for his very funny caption for the 300 pic below. Though I, and most of the JoBlo.com staff, have a real love jones for Natalie Portman, they say if you love something enough, set it free. What that has to do with anything, not sure, but it sounded good enough at the time. Zagorakis, please shoot me an email here or private message via MYJOBLO.COM to claim your CLERKS 2 (SE) prize. You have until Sunday or you'll forfeit your prize and I will give it to the first homeless person I see. Congrats again!
