It was Cal's 22nd birthday (or some multiple thereof), so Lexie Lou and Company treated everyone to some cake. Carmen sported a chameleonlike bandage while Irma declared 69 to be her favorite number. Even though Deb was a late arrival, she managed to score the Big Furry Thing. Jerry didn't want any junk food, so he gnawed on citronella candles instead. And we switched over to cash prizes instead of gift certificates for the top two teams.

My Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirt was almost as popular as the Shirt of the Week: a Michael "that no-talent ass clown" Bolton World Tour 1994 shirt. Jill wanted to check the date on the spicy peanut butter. Josiah wanted to know if he could use it for a lapjack. Ellen arrived in time to celebrate her natal day and joined Gwen Stefani on the picture sheet. The Shuttle Cocks were flying high until the third round, when the Bears and Monkeys took over. But the genuine excitement was saved for the third-place tie-breaker battle between Andy and Jim. In honor of Curtis's upcoming visit, we revived the ever popular "Don't Break the Ice." (Unfortunately for him, Jim didn't take the game title's advice and lost)

It started out slow, but gained momentum to be a decent night. Sheila was searching for her teammates and looked like she would fly solo until Dennis appeared. John was exiled to the bar, but still did well. Cocco and Company stayed long enough to win the 50/50 before taking off in search of lottery tickets. The Posse purposely did not do too well, since they didn't want the recovering Cal to get overly excited and accidentally scream. Bob insisted that Dumb Donald and Mushmouth were the same person as everyone reminisced about 70s cartoons. Chicks and Dicks once again captured fourth, this time switching time periods and picking a new war: the Big One.

The Crabby Dicks were re-incarnated while the Shuttle Cocks broke into two and Stephen Hawkings Overcame His Disability to Overcome the Balcony. Josiah and Papa Nut didn't appreciate the doubling of mini-themes (there were four this week due to a tie). Buck Snort knew their withers from their fetlocks, but fell off of the horse nonetheless. Brent's bad luck with Captain Jack caused the Jose Canseco Tried To Inject Us wilh Something Other Than Roids team to lose third, but they got to choose next week's themes. TDC and their knowledge of drunken authors helped them capture the first spot before a large swarm of E-town students enveloped the bar.

The Major Hooters were AWOL, so they didn't get to hear their M*A*S*H and 70s music questions (who remembers Brewer and Shipley?). Chicks and Dicks were short one dick, but still captured the all-important fourth place. And Room 2 pulled out a last-round comeback to capture the gold.

I returned from my wildly successful off-off-off-off-off-to-infinity-plus-one-off Broadway debut to find that Ivey did a fine job of subbing. I also found that J had once again managed to pick the themes and once again had chosen porn stars and whiskey (at least he has a two-track mind). The Shuttle Cocks were halved, while Stephen Hawking's Handicapped-Accessible Temple of Doom tripled their size. Team Discovery Channel returned from their first hiatus to find that the Sonic Death Monkey had abandoned them.
