Weekend Discussion Thread: Olympic Events Based on MSTed Movies

Yep, it’s time again for the Olympics, and, hey! I’ve got a crazy idea!

What new olympic events can you dream up, based on MSTed movies?

The first one that comes to mind is the Ator-athlon, where you have to make (from twigs and whatever you can find) a hang glider, and then fly it to the nearest castle.

What’s your event?

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned this sport. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe it was a super secret underground exhibition event at the Beijing Olympics….

    wait for it….

    Hide and Seek with a teleporting invisible mushroom gnome. Winner gets the mold medal.

    The Hellcats LSD/alcohol/cocaine triathlon. Winner goes to the hospital. Everyone loses their dignity.

    If Futurama is any indication, that will eventually become an Olympic event.

    Disaster struck last Monday during the newest addition to the Olympic Games:

    Grasshopperback polo.

    The spectators knew it was the beginning of the end when custom saddles began to violently shred apart due to the chitinous friction of vibrating thoraxes, thrumming wings, and giant twitching legs.

    Grasshoppers don’t like mallets and have a near preternatural fear of leap chasing after a small plastic ball.

    Mandibular “tobacco juice” sprayed in every direction, dangerously obstructingthe vision of goggled riders.

    The heat and tearing of the saddles, – combined with periods of “riding bareback insectoid” – proved too much for the athletes and many men tragically lost that all important extremity.

    The next morning, a special and very somber sunrise ceremony transpired.

    You never saw so many Peter Graves.

    (In memory of Mike Dodge.)

    I love this place.

    Naturally, this event would be held on the judo range.

    Jungle Goddess Biathlon: Shoot a guy for no good reason and then try to escape being killed by his angry friends. Winner gets to live. Kind of a stupid competition when you think about it.

    Touch of Satan Walnut Rodeo: Roping, Riding, Whipping. Jr. Division coached by Old Timer Billy Slater.

    Melting Man 100 Yard Dash.

    Don’t forget the relay version where you hand your actual hand to the next melting man.

    Offtopic. Tonight Svengoolie is showing a 1956 Beverly Garland movie, Curucu, Beast of the Amazon. Boy, do they smoke them cigarettes—even while getting a physical exam in a doctor’s office.

    like these

    Let’s not forget “Skull tossing” like Eric in The Screaming Skull….. of course, you may get skull tossers remorse.


  16. Bombastic Biscuit Boy says:

    What about about sheeing?

    Long overdue as an Olympic sport, if you ask me.

    I think you’re full of skit!
