  1. This morning, I took part in a Swedish radio show called "Ring så spelar vi" (literal translation: "Call us, and we'll play") where people can call in every saturday morning and request songs, as well as answer questions to win prizes. I played the game online earlier this week to qualify for the show. An hour ago, I woke up to a telephone call from one of the producers of the show, who let me know I'd been chosen to participate. Anyway, it was a very nervous experience, and the topic wasn't my area of expertise exactly (knitting!) but I got the question right, and won a gift certificate for CDs. :-)

    The song I requested, by the way, was "Pinball Wizard" by The Who.

    Has anyone else ever participated in a TV/radio game show? How was the experience? Did you win anything?

      Yeah, about two years ago I called into a local radio station to be their 13th caller and won. They played my bit on the air, and I couldn't have sounded more retarded. I was at work and got through and the voice on the other line says...

      "hello" so I reply
      "Uhhhh is this the Power Loon?"
      "Yes it is"
      "Oh yah, I was just trying to be your 15th caller or something"
      "It was 13th"
      "Oh well shoot..."
      "And that's you"
      "Woo Hoo"

      I ended up winning tickets to some amature Nascar event at the Brainerd Raceway; I never bothered to even go pick up the tickets or go.

  2. What if a guy named, say, John President, was a guest on a banquet to which the president had also been invited... would you still call him 'Mr. President'?

    I can imagine there could be some confusion.

      I'd call him "Mister John" anyway. No joke here, I tend to do that. It's either that, or temporarily developing tourette's and calling them the first thing I think of, which means some friends now have some <i>odd</i> nicknames courtesy of me. Ask the one I call Pillsbury Dave... who's actually slim and not at all dough-like... Mooh.

      If we consider that the president is George W. Bush then [his] confusion is enevitable, so you can call both men whatever you like.

    "I'm going to smack you until you can no longer smell pretty things!"

      Hark! Who is that, prowling amidst the fields! It is Ralphis, The Claardvarkian King, hands clutching a piece of chainlink fence! And with a spectacular roar, his voice cometh:

      "Brace yourself, oh human speck of dust! I shall make bloody music with your nation's populace!!"

      Zang! Who is that, skulking along the candy store! It is Captain Red, hands clutching buzzsaw hand extensions! And with a spectacular grunt, his voice cometh:

      "I'm going to punch you with such wanton cruelty, you'll age fifty years!!"

      I don't remember ever skulking along a candy store, but that is SO what I'd say!

      Rampaging out of the mini-mall parking lot, brandishing a bladed baseball bat, cometh DJ_Haruko! And he gives a gutteral cry:

      "I'm going to contort you so painfully, your screams will shatter lightbulbs world-wide!!"

  4. Bah! Humbug!
