Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
For the last couple of years, the young ones running around the house (my two boys, and Zach) have been rather keen on a different type of action figures. They aren’t as interested in the multiple points of articulation as much as they are the fun sized versions of their favorite characters. It started with the Mighty Muggs, but over the last year, they have been rather fascinated with the Funko Pop Vinyl figures. Which brings us to this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week.

VOTE!

    Re: MST3K

    I still stay ‘Fissssher!’ when I open all sorts of things.
    I still randomly state, ‘Hot merging action’ when changing lanes in traffic.
    …and whenever someone catches fire in a tv show/movie, I sing, ‘Smoke on the weirdoooo…’

    My goddaughter and I have a tradition on most weekends of finding bad movies to make our own MST3K with (basically us just sitting there and making comments with friends giving us weird looks and giggling).

    But:

    I still randomly like to say when something is resolved “Oh, there was a green switch, it was there all the time!”.

    Also from “The Movie”, I like to sing Crow’s song and use Tom Servo’s “I’m feeling a sensation altogether new to me, and frankly, I LOVE IT!”.

    Whenever anyone says “The plot thickens”, I like to reply with “Like rancid pea soup”.
