So I'm going through the show cards and there are a lot of funny (in a 'Weird Al' kinda way) parodies. So why not make a list! People love lists!

American Samurai Worrier = American Ninja Warrior
Little Sister = Big Brother
SportsEdges = SportsCenter
The Baccalaureate = The Bachelor
North Lawn = South Park
Once Upon An Enzyme = Once Upon A Time
You Reek, Augh = Eureka
Agents of S.H.A.M.P.O.O. = Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Communist-y = Community
Criminal Mindfulness = Criminal Minds
Cringe = Fringe
Dextrous = Dexter
Person of Disinterest = Person of Interest
Pulleyage = Leverage
The Cubicle = The Office
Upton Crabby = Downton Abbey
Babylonian Idol = American Idol
Monday Night Foosball = Monday Night Football
So You Think You Can Flail = So You Think You Can Dance
Ultimate Fainting Championship = Ultimate Fighting Championship
31 Paper = 30 Rock
Broken Worse = Breaking Bad
Doctor What = Doctor Who
Flee = Glee
Found = Lost
How I Left Your Father = How I Met Your Mother
NCISICBMOMGOMG: Scranton = NCIS
Paisley Is The New Burnt Umber = Orange Is The New Black
Quiver = Arrow
Red Bloods = Blue Bloods
The Limping Treated and Released = The Walking Dead
Tiny Pop Hypothesis = Big Bang Theory

...and bonus points to you if you recognized the 'U62' TV Network, which is a reference to the UHF station that Weird Al manages in the cult-classic film "UHF." One of my favorites to this very day!

These crack me up! Gil is such a hoot.

Personally, I would have gone with "Bone is the new Pale Nimbus", but that might be too obscure.

I still want to release a 90s version of the game, if only for the show "Clarissa Knows But Isn't Telling".

I would buy an expansion that didn't change the game but just added more puns.
