I Am the Answer Man Again
Aslan has no answers.Surprise, it's Zack! Greasnin contacted me to let me know that he would be busy drinking and whoring this Sunday and needed me to cover for him. The good news is that you don't have to read an update by Greasnin, the bad news is that I am going to answer all of the reader questions I received since Friday's Answer Man column. I hope you like FAQs!
Q. "Who would win in a duel? Captain Planet, or Patrick Swayze?" - steeeeve
A. Patrick Swayze would win because Captain Planet is so afraid of being gay he won't touch another man, whereas Patrick Swayze is so secure in his masculinity and sexuality he will gladly lick taint. I mean seriously, the guy will lick taint if you ask him what time it is. On the set of "Roadhouse" his nickname was Taintrick Taintze.
Q. "Should I stay or should I go?" - Skeightterbouy

A. Babies occur naturally in and around deep-ocean geothermal vents.
Q. "Which is more fitting of capital punishment: Genocide or having a "Star Trek" themed wedding, with a full star fleet uniform dress code and the exchanging of vows in Klingon?" - pinkfreud

The Weekend Web: Childrens' Edition
Hello internet friends, Zachary "Spokker Jones" Gutierrez here. I often wonder if kids were as dumb before the internet was created as they are today. Back in the early 1900s, did children speak as incomprehensible as they do on the internet? Did anyone ever say, "hey u fags, u wanna play stickball.???" and reply with "no fag, that's for n00bs"? No, no they didn't. I know because I have been to the 1900s. Let me tell you, kids were more courteous in those days. Life was also much different back then. At age 11 you had a job. At age 18 you were married. And at age 40 you died. Kids didn't have time to be drooling idiots, they were working. Long before they could ever talk the weight of the world had crushed their spirits. Today's silly "child labor laws" have changed all that. Kids have more free time to act like goddamn morons and pollute our internet with incredibly incoherent rants such as this.
There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to it! It makes me angry! It should make you angry too. Tell Washington you want the children working in the coal mines just like the good old days. Our future depends upon it.
Now, inexplicably, season three is looming over us like some sort of dome. Season one's plot asked whether or not the town could get out from under the dome. Apparently the answer was "no". Season two asked "I guess we're really stuck, huh?" and the answer was "yup".
With an average of 40 IPAs added every day, it can be difficult to taste them all
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
