Dang Super Soup Bowl. Where is everyone at?

Asked by Symbeline (30768 points ) February 3rd, 2013

Well, Fluther is always slow, but I come on here right now, and it’s almost a record breaker. I’m just going to blame the Superbowl. Everyone out there, having fun and eating chips and swearing at the TV and stuff. Or perhaps not, I am known for having no life. And not owning any chips. That could be it.

But say, there must be be a few marauding samurais out there, just itching for a victory. How about The Fluther Bowl VS The Forces of Boredom? C’mon, help me out here.

I was never able to own chips either.

Not sure if I fall under the marauding samauri category but I sure like how it sounds.

Symbeline's avatar

@augustlan Welcome! :D Now that you’re here, the boredom cringes before the whip. :D

@rosehips Yeah I’m pretty sure I’m not a marauding samurai either…but I also liked how it sounded. :D

@Chips We’re comin’ for you, ya heard!?

augustlan's avatar

Maraud, maraud!

Unbroken's avatar

To literary embellishments.

Hey @Chips isn’t taken? That would be an awesome moniker.

zensky's avatar

I think I’m here.

Symbeline's avatar

@rosehips Man, you shouldn’t have said that. Now everyone’s going to want to be called Chips. seriously, how is that not even taken yet?

Also I made this question out of the blue, and I now realize that’s one of the reasons I don’t host Superbowl parties. But until I think of something…here’s a random King of the Hill comic. XD

And a Xena one.

@zensky So how did it go? The Klingons won, right?

I don’t have a stake in the game and am watching it now, recorded. Time dif. and all. Just enjoyed the huge 56 yard TD by the Raven’s Jones. THAT was amazing. Learned something new, too: you can catch the ball and hit the ground, but if untouched can continue to run with the ball (and TD in this case).

augustlan's avatar

I watched the last 8 minutes or so of the game. I’d just clicked over to check the score, and saw how close it was and got sucked right in! The rest of the evening, while my husband was at his son’s house to watch the game, I was curled up on the couch eating tacos and catching up on Glee. ;)

Waiting on Beyonce’s booty now…

Symbeline's avatar

@zensky Whoa, you’re watching the Superbowl, recorded? You must be a true fan at heart, then.

Oh and then Zenny adds another answer; I was gonna ask about Beyonce, but I forgot, till now.

@augustlan Tacos rock. and big soft couches, too! :D

ucme's avatar

I heard there was a power cut…tee-hee.

zensky's avatar

I just watch it for the half-time show.

Symbeline's avatar

@zensky oh right, like anyone learns anything from the half time show. :p

@ucme Wait, you mean there was a slasher marathon I wasn’t aware of? And I missed it? Dammit.

zensky's avatar

I learned that Beyonce is hot – and may have redeemed herself after the Inauguration fiasco.

Symbeline's avatar

@zensky Well in two days from now, there will probably be a whole bunch of online upskirt pics of her that people took. she likes it

zensky's avatar

It’s cool that she tossed her clothes into the audience – but very dangerous.

ucme's avatar

@Symbeline Now that i’d have watched.

zensky's avatar

@ucme Probs on Utube already…

amujinx's avatar

Beyonce was pretty smoking… and there couldn’t be upskirts when she wasn’t really wearing a skirt.

You don’t actually need chips by the way. I watched the game and munched on nan bread and hummus.

I have a couple katanas, so I can act like a samurai and let one other person pretend to be one too. Who’s in?

Symbeline's avatar

@ucme Hell yeah. Lots of slasher movies have football players, so it’s all the same to me; violence, upskirts and like, more violence. XD

@zensky Probleh. But I still like it better when Shakira goes to Africa and boots soccer balls around.

@amujinx Yeah I was thinking, maybe she was actually wearing pants or something. I’d go for the whole pretending to be a samurai too, except I’m already pretending to be a Viking. I have a hammer anshit.

zensky's avatar

Aye, Symsky, Shakira can boot my soccer balls around anyday.

ucme's avatar

@Symbeline Or some crazed fan running on the pitch with a machete coz someone flagged the play, it’s only a game dude wtf!

amujinx's avatar

@ucme That would have been much more entertaining than the half hour the stadium lights were half out so they had former football players talk on and on. At least it would have been something happening on the field.

ucme's avatar

I think it’s hilarious the way a player does some dumb gangsta dance just for making a tackle.
If that happened across europe in a proper football match, the player would be forced off the pitch with his shorts around his ankles, sucking his thumb, the entire crowd pointing & laughing as he went.

Symbeline's avatar

@amujinx Oh damn. Haha, way to get away with it, Beyon seh.

@ucme…did that actually happen? Cuz if it did, I’m about to have a real, honest to goodness boner. XD

ucme's avatar

Oops, sorry didn’t see you there @amujinx yeah, any excuse for those guys to talk til their jaws flap.
@Symbeline Ya know what…I just betcha wud :¬)

Symbeline's avatar

Lol…you said wood.

ucme's avatar

Batter up…soz, wrong game!

Symbeline's avatar

@ucme Some very few peeps complain about your one liners, but honestly, I don’t know how you always have a joke for everything. That’s just fucking awesome. :D

ucme's avatar

@Symbeline Hey, you can’t please all the peo…you can please some of the pe…ah, fuck it! XD

ucme's avatar

On a serious note…no really, I love the fact both coaches were brothers, must’ve been tough for their parents though.

woodcutter's avatar

I was up on the mountain all day just like I said we would be. It was nice to see only a few people there. On any given Sunday it is usually packed. This time, hardly anyone. Nice. My dog found a piece of a porcupine carcass and got a bunch of quills stuck inside her mouth and tongue. So the drama of holding her down and yanking them out was still better than a football game or scads of people all over the place. Anyway I can tell she was happy to be quill free. I can only hope a lesson was learned.

Sorry I couldn’t be around to shoot the shit with you Symby.
I was crying into a book last night.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Oh, I’m sorry @Symbeline. A crazed samurai busted through my back door, guzzled my soda, and stole my chips, so I was busy chasing him down with the sword I got from Robin Of Locksley.

burntbonez's avatar

Went to Disney Land. Ate some alligator.

WestRiverrat's avatar

It was nice here so I decided to walk on water and went fishing.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I’d like to state for the record that I wasn’t watching the SB, I was just out with my partner…I’d say hi to you were I here.

Symbeline's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Yeah, that happens to me sometimes, except then the samurai gets angry at my inability to own chips.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Yeah I kind of have a hard time imagining you watch that. I just hope you two avoided all the steak houses and sport bars.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Symbeline We did as we were in Carnegie Hall.

Symbeline's avatar

…damn man. That’s awesome. What’d you guys see there?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Symbeline A pianist and a cellist from the Yale School of Music do a bunch of classical pieces.

Symbeline's avatar

Dang bros. When I wrote this question, there was no one on for most of the day. But today, we’ve got way more questions and activity than I’ve seen in a long time. :D
