May 24, 2011

Now that that there’s been time to assess the Collateral Damage following the revelation of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s True Lies and the Total Recall of his, uh, Jingle All the Way children out of wedlock, some disturbing questions remain. How many more are there? Could I be one of them? Why haven’t I ever seen my own father and Arnold in the same room? Lest this uncertainty plague you till the End of Days, or you spend the rest of your life awkwardly incorporating movie titles into every conversation, you’d better take the following quiz and find out. Twins, Red Sonja, Pumping Iron.

    Uh-oh. Looks like I’d better have a talk with Mom.

      I hear you. Mine used to go on about “that pig Arnold,” and I always thought she was referring to Green Acres. How wrong I was.

    Oh gosh. My mom had a major “thing” for Arnold. It was disturbing. Much like that baby picture up there. Creepy.

    Commando, Predator, Conan The Barbarian.

      If you think the picture’s creepy, you should see the baby’s perfectly developed glutes. Diaper rash or no, he can still crack walnuts with his butt.

    The quiz was very hard to take, because my eyes were filled with tears. The picture is hilarious!

      Thanks. I basically just pointed the camera into the mirror and Photoshopped it out later.

    Now I have an excuse for my addiction to flexing.

      At first glance I read that as “addiction to sexing.” Which is equally appropriate. Or inappropriate, depending on how you look at it.
