Order in the Courtship
Courtship is a pretty stupid thing to write a SA front page update about because it's hard to work in "hilarious" references to Scientology, World War II, or the NES.
I actually like the idea of a wooing process. If a girl will let you remove her unmentionables on the first date... well, where's the challenge in that? It's too easy, like playing through Contra with the Konomi Code.
Ah ha, see how I worked the NES reference in there? HOW'S THAT FOR COMEDY GOLD?!?! INTERNET HILARITY AT ITS FINEST GENTS, SLAP ON YOUR LOLLERSKATES AND HEAD FOR THE ROFLCOPTER!!!!!!!!!!
Poker's Best Boy
The goal of courtship is to ultimately "poke her" and the goal of Bill Fillmaff is to teach you how to play "poker!" Look for chapter 5 of Bill Fillmaff's Secret System sometime today (or tomorrow or yesterday or ten years ago, depending on when you read this).
I help Bill out with posting his videos and he's an... interesting guy.

OK, that's enough.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
