Tuesdays with Moron: Chatological Humor Update

Feb 07, 2012

Every Tuesday, Gene publishes weekly updates to his chats.

Gene's latest chat.

On one Tuesday each month, Gene is online to take your questions and abuse. He will chat about anything. Although this chat is sometimes updated between live shows, it is not and never will be a "blog," even though many persons keep making that mistake. One reason for the confusion is the Underpants Paradox: Blogs, like underpants, contain "threads," whereas this chat contains no "threads" but, like underpants, does sometimes get funky and inexcusable.

Important, secret note to readers: The management of The Washington Post apparently does not know this chat exists, or it would have been shut down long ago. Please do not tell them. Thank you.

Weingarten is also the author of "The Hypochondriac's Guide to Life. And Death," co-author of "I'm with Stupid," with feminist scholar Gina Barreca and "Old Dogs: Are the Best Dogs," with photographer Michael S. Williamson.

Ed's Note: If composing your questions in Microsoft Word please turn off the Smart Quotes functionality or use WordPad. I haven't the time to edit them.

Welcome Update Readers, and welcome to the annual Definitive Super Bowl Commercial Poll. 

There have been other Super Bowl commercial polls, but this is the only one that provides scientifically accurate evaluations. No, the scientifically accurate evaluations are not yours; they are mine. But your evaluations will be of mild interest, too.

Here are the ten top ads:

- Exercise dog
- Matthew's day off
- Hockey
- So gross
- Dead cat
- Reinvention
- Vampire party
- Pee in pool
- Seinfeld
- Apocalypse


Take the polls.


After making your choices,  click on ANSWERS, in which I will explain why you were wrong.
