Who: Scarlett Johansson




What: Twister


Why: Because last time she quit in the middle of our game. That and she so furious she stole my wallet. Granted it's probably because she grabbed the wrong pair of pants on her way out.

Chuck Norris

WHAT
Ca$h 'n Gun$

Well, it's obvious. There are absolutely no other possibilities to point a gun at Chuck Norris... Of course, all my bang cards would mystically change to clicks, that's for sure.

Second choice

Who: Whoever at Fox was responsible for messing up Firefly's TV run* and prematurely cancelling it.

Why: Obvious.

Added torment: The theme from Firefly should be playing on a continuous loop..."Take my love, Take my land..."

How long: In perpetuity, or at least until he agrees to personally apologize to each and every Browncoat.



*Seriously, who could possibly think "Let's not run the pilot...that pesky little episode that establishes every character and the premise of the whole show...first. Let's just start with the next one."?
