Pencils down.



I just finished taking VH1's Pop Culture I.Q. Test. If the bar exam required copious amounts of useless knowledge gained from years of reading "Entertainment Weekly", watching E! and VH1, and scanning internet message boards, I'd already have made partner in Crane, Poole & Schmidt.

Statistically, I don't think I answered enough questions correctly to be in the fifth percentile, which makes you eligible to participate in "The World Series of Pop Culture" (why did I choose "Anthony Edwards" when the answer was "Timothy Busfield"?). They don't give you your results, but I think I scored somewhere between 80% and 90%. Hopefully, a "Best Week Ever" producer will happen upon my scores and offer me a job.

If you missed out on the 7 p.m. exam, you can still take it at 10 p.m. EST.

the way i figure it, if you take the test, you're already more pop-cult inclined than 95% of america (including me), which is more pop-cult influenced than 95% of the world (unless japan accounts for more than 5% of the world's population).

so, congratulations on that micah.

I would be very surprised if they didn't get in touch with you.

Thank you and we'll see (but I'm not intentionally leaving those days open).

The first step in my disillusionment with game shows is when I applied online to participate in VH1's "Rock 'n' Roll Jeopardy" (aka "Loser Jeopardy" to my crew) and never heard anything. I KICKED ASS when playing along at home. I would've totally ruled if I was on the actual show (provided I didn't go up against Mark McGrath).
