ITT Get a Head Start on Your Next Neg Prize

Post by AKKOLADE » Sun Jan 20, 2008 11:23 pm

In honor of Dan Leifer, in this thread, start posting wrong answers to questions so you can increase your chances of winning meaningless neg prizes at your next tournament! I'm certain this will work out well!

I thought I had this year's influx of pornographic neg prizes locked up, but then Trevor Davis showed up. Fuck you Trevor, that's my Victorian smut. Asshole.


Can someone actually confirm that Dan is still alive?

A surefire strategy is to realize that the question is asking about a ruler of a certain name, then give an incorrect number when prompted. Amazingly, when I performed such a brain fart on Saturday, the question wasn't even depicting the ruler I had meant to come up with.

I still feel the sting from when "Vlad IV Tepes" rushed out of my mouth before I had time to think.

Definitely a chop-suey buzz... (after hearing song lyrics which I thought sounded vaguely like American Idiot to my tired mind)

IIRC, the question began by quoting part of the opening verse of "The Grand Illusion".

That would make a good amount of sense to confuse it with noted dreck Green Day.
