I had an idea, and that's always scary.

In Mr. Yin Presents, Shawn gave one true fact about Alfred Hitchcock - that he appeared in all of his films. And then he offered a completely untrue piece of trivia about Alfred - that he was obsessed with womens' Japanese household slippers and wore them all the time. He's done this in other episodes too, like saying that that bridge in Vancouver was built by wolves. ^_^ So I think this could make a fun game. Hopefully others will agree. Here's how it will work.

The first person offers up one TRUE piece of trivia. For example:

DID YOU KNOW that ‘Jay’ used to be slang for ‘foolish person.’ So when a pedestrian ignored street signs, he was referred to as a ‘jaywalker.’?

The next person will come up with one UNTRUE piece of trivia related to the first person's bit. For example:

BUT DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT Jaywalking was considered an extreme sport in Japan until the champion was tragically hit and killed by a Subaru in downtown Tokyo?

Then that person will also give out the next bit of TRUE trivia...

Is this wierd? Yes, probably. But it could be fun. It could be awesome! It's worth a try anyway. Who's with me?



I'll start:
DID YOU KNOW that James Roday was chosen as one of People Magazine's annual 100 Most Beautiful People in May 2007?

Lassiter: "We found prints-"
Shawn: "Was he in a "Little Red Corvette"?"
Gus: "Or "Under the Cherry Moon"?"
Lassiter: "We found finger-prints!"


Gus: "Are you crazy?"
Shawn: "I wouldn't say crazy. Maybe an eccentric who looks good in jeans."



Juliet: "Detective Lassiter is literally on fire today."
Shawn: "Literally on fire" as in Michael Jackson in the Pepsi commercial, or as in a misuse of the word "literally?"
