Box Office Special - The Year the Violence Died

In the interest of some more prolonged horror discussion, I'm going to pass on this week's top 5. Bang it here if you want to see the box office numbers for the week. My brief assessment:

Winners: "HSM3," for maintaining the top spot; "Changeling," for widening with moderate success; "Chihuahuas," for straying relevant in week 5 of release; "Secret Life of Bees," for staying relevant in week 3, and "Max Payne" and "Eagle Eye" for making their investment back domestically.

An Ode to Fancy Jon

The following sonnet, as we talked about on this week's podcast, was sent to the BGH main contact email by a longtime listener and friend of the show. Clearly, we have some erudite listeners.

Without any further ado, here's a poem by Changwa Steve.

How Schnaars Saved the Internet: An Ode to Fancy Jon

The internet's a sticky Stygian lair
Where seed through fierce grips is vainly spilt
While fleshy buttocks squirm in padded chairs
And crusty gymsocks mop away the guilt

And selfsame wankers turn with claws befouled
