Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Not Bringing It Up Edition


My recent bout with illness led me to rent a bunch of terrible found-footage horror flicks, including ‘V/H/S’ and a Japanese sequel to ‘Paranormal Activity’, neither of which was particularly memorable.  My love of terrible slasher movies dates back to the days when my cousin Elwood and I would have to drive down to the creepy video store by the river to rent the likes of ‘Phantasm’ and ‘Return Of The Living Dead,’ but I generally avoid bringing up the subject in polite company.  There’s a part of me that worries that people will presume that I’m sort of bunny-strangling floobernoogle, or worse, that I’ll have to debate with other folks who love the genre why ‘House Of 1000 Corpses’ was a yard too far for my comfort level.  Either way, it’s something I tend to keep mum about to avoid awkwardness, which leads us to today’s furtive query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) should also mention having seen every single episode of ‘Family Guy’, some of them multiple times, and I do enjoy much of it, asking: Which of your favorite bits of pop culture do you find just a little bit embarrassing?
