No Homework

G to the Ame, T to the Ime. Or mathematically speaking, G^ame T^ime.

Come on man, superscript it up.

Game Time

Now we're talking.

Last Week's Winner

Last week, we played another round of the PSB Original Game, Ad Geniuses, where we asked you to slogan up "A Wink and a Nod" a fictitious equine-themed board game. Let's see how you did.

Loyal reader Sam had been posting a bunch of answers to our Game Time games on Thursday nights, sneaking in his answers right before the deadline, for several weeks in a row. After chastising him and denying him the victory, he didn't play this week. And that's what we at the Pake Shlake Band are all about - criticizing our readers so much, they never want to come back. You hear that you? You stink!

Instead of Sam, Tony and Luca were the loyal reader who decided to give us a whole bunch of answers - two a piece. But the best out of those four was Tony's slogan, "The ‘Neighs’ Have It!" Not too shabby. But for all four of Tony and Luca's answers, we have to say...nay.

Mama Meg had a good idea with her tagline, "Make Dollars out of Horse Sense," but that seems too much like exploiting the beautiful creatures. And if there's anything we don't do to horses, it's exploit them. Maybe if she had said, "Make Dollars out of Horse Cents," that would have worked, but we've all seen that game already. It's called Horsopoly. And it stinks.

Emily had quite possibly the best answer yet with "The Game for the Horse-Lover in All of Us - Or Some of You Weirdos at Least…Who Loves Horses Anyway? Third Grade Girls?" But that might be a little too hostile for any marketing, especially marketing to the third grade girls.

So it looks like Lorenzo comes in first again, earning himself back to back wins with his slogan, "Are you able in the stable?" That means Lorenzo is 2-2 in Ad Geniuses, which should probably earn him the title of Ad Genius. But it won't.

This Week's Game

So it looks like it's school time again. Yep, it's that time of year again, when schools open up their doors again and kids find themselves back on the yellow buses.

Now we know what you're thinking: "BOOOOOO school!" or "YAAAAY school!" or "I'm kinda indifferent to the subject, but you were eerily correct in saying you know what I was thinking."

So with back-to-school on our minds, we're going to play a round of the PSB Original Game, Bests and Worsts. You know how to play right? It's pretty easy. Here's the topic:

Worst excuse for not turning in your homework.

And here's our answer:

That episode of Top Cat where Al the Actor pretends to be Officer Dibble and steals all the paintings was on and you couldn't resist watching it.

Whatchoo got?


  1. I was too busy working on that extra-credit assignment. Yeah, that one that's not due until the end of the semester.

  2. I was having a moment of silence in honor of Michael Jackson.

  3. No time for homework. Spent all week trying to come up with clever slogan for imaginary board game about horses.

  4. Somebody put my CD player on 'repeat' so when I played my usual pre-homework song "Georgie Girl" I couldn't stop singing and dancing long enough to complete the assignment.

  5. Labor Day Weekend Marathon of WEBSTER on TV Land

  6. I couldn't do this year homework until I finished my summer reading.
