It's Friday of a Syracuse football game-week, and that means one thing. A preview of this weekend's opponent Idiot style. So here's a quick look at all things Penn, pencil, and Pennsylvania.
Penn & Teller: Thumbs down. I never really got the whole magician thing....Chris Angel, David Blaine and these guys included. Minimal redeeming idiot points awarded for a cameo in a great song's music video.
Mechanical pencils: Thumbs down. I want to meet the guy who made a fortune with this scam. Remember these things? You'd get one days worth of good writing before the lead starting breaking into little pieces. Was getting up to sharpen the good old fasioned yellow#2 really that much work? In case you haven't noticed, I'm very particular about my school supplies.
Sean Penn: Thumbs up. Helluva actor. We'll give him a mulligan on the whole Madonna thing.
Penn Hotel, NYC: Thumbs, fingers, toes DOWN. I'm sure many of you in Idiot Nation have stayed at this dump located right across from MSG. You won't find this place highly rated in your AAA Travel Guide.
Scoonie Penn: Thumbs down. You played at BC. Enough said.
"Pencil Neck Geek": Thumbs up to this insult made famous by '80s WWF manager Classy Freddie Blassie.
Penn Relays: Thumbs neutral. As a sports fan, I should probably know more about this track event. Never mind.
Penn Trafic Company: Thumbs down. My local P&C always only has one register open. Wegman's....the #1 seed of local grocery stores for a reason.
Pennsylvania Railroad, Monopoly: Thumbs up. Most people have their eyes set on Park Place and Boardwalk. Myself I was always a Monopoly slumloard. The railroads were always a nice way to diversify my bargain basement real estate investments.
