Each week we try to have a theme for the Brainypics Flashcard Contest. Inspired by a couple of our users for their Brainypics about "The Office" and "Saturday Night Live", we figured we might as well indulge in good ole fashion veggin' time...This week's theme: Grab an image from one of your favorite (or not favorite) TV shows and give us a Brainypic flashcard!!! Go to Brainyflix to participate.:]
This photo shows Hover Cat at the NADIR of her flight.
Letting your dog into the hot tub is not an EXEMPLARY action.
The cat had to ABORT the mission before he was caught buying catnip.
Though he didn't believe it at first, the player found out the hard way that Yao's armpits are actually quite ACERBIC.
Kagome was nearly killed by a MALEDICTION from the black priestess Tsubaki.
You can thank Elgringoalex, Insomniacmushroom, Ipopstar, Ez Mac + Rice + Anna, and Jberestovoy for the lols. Well done, well done. :]
