Today they run a story about a guy who made a "three minute" joke he made while rolling a doobie, and follow that breaking news up with someone who had a dream about Brock Lesnar! I thought it was bad when they reported that someone had seen Chyna's book in a discount bin somewhere, but this is a hilarious new low. It's to the point of self-parody. "huh huh. we were taking gravity bong hits and I said "3 minuntes!" Dude, it was hilarious. thought you might like to know."
My turntables might wobble but they don't fall down.

But don't you realize, it was Gerwitz who made the 'three minute joke' when writing the ending of RAW.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
But isn't the onus on the Torch to decide to not print these obscure references? If people think that they can get their name on the Torch website (and I had gotten on with my comments in the past and I was proud and happy that my name was in print on their site), then I don't see a problem with it.
The people might be pitiful to you, but it is Wade's decision and he has to live with the many of those types of submissions he gets every day, so just count yourself lucky.

Not print them? YOU ever tried to find 'content' to fill a new and improved 'site'?
By the way, there was at least one 'discount bin' follow up that HAD to be exactly the type of imaginary obscure wrestling reference the Bishop suggests. And I'm sure I've failed to detect others.
M. Cole: Oh no, what's Angle going to do with that chair. Tazz: Well, I think he wants to, you know, HIT HIM with it.
The best part of "Obscure Wrestling References" is that that's not what "obscure" means.
¡Azúcar, flores y muchos colores! Estos fueron los ingredientes elegidos para crear a la niñita perfecta. Pero el profesor Utonio agrego accidentalmente otro ingrediente a la formula: ¡la sustancia X! Y así nacieron, ¡las Chicas Superpoderosas! ¡Con sus ultra súper poderes, Bombón, Burbuja y Bellota dedican su vida a combatir el crimen y las fuerzas del mal!
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (0-4) - Bye weeks are boring (round 2) Badgers (5-1) - Congrats to Penn State. Time to rethink our defense. Twins (1-1) - The team looked like hell. Hopefully we can steal one in Cali. Buffy 7.3 earns a 8.04 Out of 10 for being the funny, but throwing out enough plot contrivances to last us the whole damn season. Anya however = Hillarious.
I thought those "obscure wrestling references" were awesome. It was a sort of self-mockery. They're aware that many of the OWRs that they print are ridiculous, and it's as if they decided to intentionally jump the shark and take it to ridiculous extremes.
I dig that sort of thing. Not everyone has a sense of humor which matches mine though. In fact, most people don't. I am often left unamused by things which others find funny.
Every Tuesday or Wednesday when the weekend/RAW ratings come out, I summarize them and compare them to the previous week in my Daily Rapp Up. The weekly ratings usually come from Scherer (although occasionally Meltzer or the Torch publishes them, too)
