Enter the Contest You Filthy Cretins!
So far about 3/4ths of the entries for "The 2004 J-List and Something Awful Mega Kawaii Contest Prize Bucks Super-Saiyan Extravaganza!" have really sucked. That means everyone who has missed the contest or has been putting off entering should immediately follow this amazing underlined text link, read the rules, and enter the goddamn contest. I am sick out of my mind of looking at infant-quality MS Paint drawings of Pikachu and a tank.
I Am the Answer Man
I'm not Robot Sam, but I do have a lot of answers.I have a number of hobbies to keep me busy in between boring introspective articles and lame jokes about videogames. Many of these hobbies would not interest most of you, our beloved readers, but possibly my favorite hobby of all is answering questions. I can spend hours on end just sitting there and providing snappy answers to virtually any question posed to me. Unfortunately, I don't actually have the correct answers to any of these questions.
To demonstrate this and partake in my love of answers I gave an open invitation to all of the readers on the SA Forums to ask me any question. To my delight the questions came fast and furiously like a Vin Diesel strapped to the hood of a riced-out Lancer. At the conclusion of this stimulating Q&A session I distilled the highlights, which I present to you now.
Q. "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?" - Kezef
Q. "Why doesn't anyone on 'Friends' look like me?" - TheMadMadman
A. To everyone else they do look like you, but when you travel back in time as you have there is great risk involved in seeing yourself. It might make you black out or it might kill you instantly. Your wranglers installed a chip in your brain that replaces all images of yourself with 3D renderings of King Hippo from "Mike Tyson's Punch Out".
Q. "What do you predict would have happened if the Germans had won in North Africa?" - dick jokes
A. I will give you a totally accurate answer:
If the DAK had captured North Africa then we would all be speaking Chinese. And doing a lot of dancing.
Q. "What was the craziest WWII vehicle that was never produced, but was conceived of?" - Antrodemus

A. The Walt Disney Corporation
Q. "How exactly do I go about summoning a demon from the 7th circle of Hell?" - Green

Q. "In your opinion, what would happen if the tiny nation of Andora suddenly developed the technology to build anti-matter based weaponry and giant mechanized robot combat vehicles and became increasingly hostile towards the rest of the western world.

A. Two, two, two, two, and two.
Q. "Stacey's boyfriend just broke up with her and now she is heartbroken because she feels her crush on Mark caused the whole fiasco. To add a little to the incident, Mark has had a crush on Hillary while going out with Steficus (Staceys best friend) for over a year now. Everyone is very distressed because the 80's dance at school was canceled due to not enough tickets being sold but the thing is, DECA members were going to buy their tickets on the last day! The 80's dance coordinators (see also: Brittney Mohler) do not know what they are doing and can not accurately predict the DECA ticket sales on the last day. On a constructive tangent, Brittney Mohler is extremely hot yet refuses to dress in the hype of fashion due to some kind of trade embargo situation with normal stores, or maybe its just some odd fixation with the local thrift store. She is not Mexican btw. Anyway, Stacey is wondering what she should do about her boyfriend and whether or not she should fall into his trap and go out with him or if they should just date for a while or if she should consider Hillary's views on the topic. Thanks in advance!" - spinflip
A. I feel Stacey's pain and totally understand what she is going through. I had a good friend who was killed on an aircraft carrier while standing too close to an arresting wire and I totally wanted him to split me like wet pine. My advice is to buy deer musk and apply it to Stacey's vagina and then wait to be shot by a passing hunter.
Q. "Do you think I'm fat? Do you love me?" - Covered In Bees
A. No baby, you're pleasingly plump. Of course I love you baby.
Q. "Does this look infected?" - Gravitee

A. If affirmative action is anything like drag racing then HELL YEAH!
Q. "If a train left New York at 3:00pm travelling west at 50mph and at 4:00 a train left Los Angeles at travelling east at 40mph, which direction would the egg fall off the roof?" - TheMadMadman
A. It depends on the power of prayer.
Q. "Does Jamie Lee Curtis have testicular feminization? Seriously, America wants to know." - babyburrito
A. Jamie Lee Curtis has a fully developed penis and testicles between her legs. She also has eleven infant vaginas on her back. I'll let America be the judge.
Q. "Why am I allergic to egg white? I throw up when I eat them, and sometimes my throat closes up and I could maybe even die." - Myrddin Emrys
A. You may not be allergic to egg white. The best way to find out for certain is to insert a long funnel into your esophagus and pour a gallon of egg whites down your throat.
Cowboy Klingon has NO answers. Don't even try with him. Seriously, that guy...oh but that's for another day.Q. "If you and Jack went horseback riding and Jack helped you off the horse, would you help Jack off the horse?" - TheMadMadman

I hope you have enjoyed this "best of horrible answers" session. As a brilliant means of generating more content I now extend an offer to conclude this series on Monday with an exciting reader Q&A! Just send in your questions along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will begin the flow of innacurate date once again.
Hi guys, its your old enemy Livestock here. I just got back from the comedy factory where the SA Forum Goons have finished putting together their latest Phriday lineup. This week we explore the dangers of product placement in movies, particularly when your movie is about Jesus. "The Passions of the Christ," in spite of all its praise, gets hit hard. It certainly wasn't the follow-up to "Beyond Thunderdome" I expected, but what can you do.
I'm just going to throw a second link out and hope that by now we've reached a point in our relationship where I don't have to try to sell these features to you anymore.
Ernest Cline, writer of Ready Player One, shares his newest poem.
Honestly, the Assassin In Love poster is nearly perfect to begin with. It just needs a few minor tweaks.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
