Sketch idea: Zombie Phelps. Play on Phelps' notorious diet.
Sketch idea: Phelps leaves Egypt with the Hebrews in the Exodus. Phelps abandons the procession at the Red Sea as Pharaoh nears.

In response to complaints about how you can't jump in Bionic Commando Rearmed, I ask: When was the last time you jumped when not exercising or sporting?
Jumping is unnatural, even for soldiers. More video games should disallow jumping.
Sketch idea: The real Super Mario Bros. 1-1. Fat plumber has to catch his breath after like five jumps.
"Can't I punch enemies? I mean, I can punch blocks!"

This week on The Secret Life of the American Teenager:
man, tony fader is a weird dude, who while being one of the strangest human beings i've ever met, somehow always seems to know when i was talking about something recently.
that's because he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector
How good was Bush's Sixteen Stone? – Uh, Not very good. You speed up or slow down some of their chord progressions and they turn into songs off of Green Day – Dookie. Swear to god.
i liked Bush when i was in the fifth grade. i like to think my musical tastes have progressed since then.
half of californication became singles also. that was a good album.
stadium arcadium: two discs, hardly any good singles.

tony smiles a lot. its like he can read into my mind or see me naked.
