Second: Hermoine – “I broke it off, but … as you can see I have raised my right hand and I will give the Scout’s Honor or recite the Pledge of Allegiance (sans the ‘under God’ part) or slap myself in the face … whatever … just don’t make me go back to Crawford, Texas again.”

Third: Brandon JaynesI broke it off, but since I’m not the leader of a democracy, I don’t have to answer to you!

John – All Hail King PUT!!

KennyVlad couldn’t qualify at home, so he searched out abroad before finally landing an appearance on Egyptian Idol.

    I hate to admit I posess this knowledge but—the “woohoo” tune quoted here is for Vonage Telcom coomercials, not Geico.

  2. Rodney Dill says:

    The bottom of the barrel was meant to be read as three separate captions. The Vonage commercials always mentions ‘people do stupid things,’ (like breaking of the nose of the sphinx) so I threw out the “woo hoo’s” to make people think of that.

    At least somebody is reading down to the bottom of the post 😉

    Vonage is currently using that noise… though a few months ago, at least two orgs were using it in spots seen here in Rochester… though I don’t recall who the other was.
