After a week of pleading with friends and co-hosts not to give away any of the big twists, I have finally seen ‘Avengers: Endgame’.  I really enjoyed the thing where the guy had that thing, the time when that one person arrived just in the nick of time, and also when Captain America said that thing, but having been spoilered TWICE by internet pop-ups at dinner, just minutes before I saw the flick, I don’t want to damage the experience for any Faithful Spoilerites.  You’ll just have to learn about how two people argued with a stunning ending, how somebody got an important haircut and how the real hero may be an animal we see for about ten seconds later, leading to today’s intentionally vague query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is still embarrassed about the time I spoiled the thing about the item and significance of its name in that one famous movie about the rich beard guy, asking: Describe your WORST spoiler experience, in non-spoilery terms.

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I knew the twist to Psycho before I saw it and I was still surprised because of plot structure and masterful immersion in the story. I guess my point is that I can’t think of one or I am just very dumb!

    I knew what happens in the first act of Transformers the Movie. Finnish comics run started from that issue years before I saw it.

    I read the spoiler about the circumstances of a major character’s death in the 6th Harry Potter book while I was finishing the 5th. I was so dissapointed! I didn’t really enjoy reading that book at all. And sure, it made the later reveal a lot more satisfying, but it sucked at the moment
