Less funny than awesome.
True but you know my general policy on pop-culture in the Awesome pics thread. :)

Ok, so, what your drug choice says about you:

All awesome, but the opium one really got me.

I also like their drink choices one.

Great stuff, enough that he got added to my select few non-Detroit twitter follows. :)

Wish he did Absinth though, what am I saying about myself, aside from that I might like Cradle of Filth. ;)

The one about tobacco is pretty much true, at least for mean.  I mean I guess I could just stand outside alone and NOT smoke, but that would be boring.

Was that an IT Crowd reference I saw? :D

You don't need an eye test.

I'll be behind the door if you need me.

As much as I like IT Crowd, I've found that I find Black Books (also made by Graham Linehan) even funnier and more re-watchable. I literally never get tired of watching episodes of that.

Every time I visit the wine shop of a friend of mine and he makes me have a glass or two of whatever he's hauled in from his wanderings in dusty Spanish and French cellars, the scene with the totalizer hovers at the back of my mind. :)

my drinks aren't even on the list.  They are red wine, brandy, and mixed drinks.  Man, would love me a Tequila Sunrise right now...

I have a feeling they would just call them girly though.

I don't care about wine either, I just like drunken customer-hating Irishmen. :D

I love both shows, IT Crowd and Black Books - but for some reason Bernard (the aforementioned drunken customer-hating Irishman) just destroys me. I do find BB to be a tougher sell to most people, though. The funny thing is, though, if you strip both shows down to their essentials, they're kind of the same - Cynical Irish Guy (Roy/Bernard), Weirdo With Funny Hair (Manny/Moss) and The Girl Next Door (Fran/Jen) have wacky misadventures.

Mind you, while I love Tamsin, I'd plump for Katherine much faster. Though perhaps if they wrestled first.....

IT Crowd was okay.  Might've been better if there'd been more IT stuff in it.  I guess because I've done that line of work for several years I identified strongly with that aspect and hoped they'd explore it more.  They definitely captured the real essence of IT support work... you become some sort of otherworldly spirit summoned as needed and banished when your usefulness has passed.

Also don't understand why everyone on the show had a funny accent.

I don't exactly do IT, but I totally get that feeling. I frequently have to be "the computer guy" at work.
Also, funny accents are funny. :D
