Celebrity Millionaire

You know, when "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" was in its Heyday, they did a special celebrity version. It never got aired though; too much ego squabbling among the characters and the show. But VE investigators have come up with a few clips for you...










Though they all answered these questions correctly, none of them went on to win the money though. Harry got a bad headache (as usual). Homer insulted Regis to the point of being disqualified. As to Yoda, well, when 900 years old you get, forget many things you will. Sadly, Gollum and Buffalo Bill were unable to get further as they didn't have any friends to phone for their lifeline...

i heard yoda was disqualified for using the force instead of phone a friend.

cathouse teri said...

My favorite, Yoda is.

Kurt said...

It saddens me to learn that there was a Celebrity Millionaire, and I didn't see it.

VE said...

lime - Yoda can get a bit cranky in his old age...

teri - Ya gotta love his dislexic sentence structure!

VE said...

kurt - There are secret things going on in the stations between the regular stations...

Maureen said...

Espresso Petroleum!!!!

Har!

Now that's all I am going to think of the next time I watch HP.

VE said...

maureen - Glad somebody caught that. It was the core thought funny behind the whole post. I just sort of expanded from there.

Queen Goob said...

I'm sorry to say that Buffalo Bill did not answer correctly. Before you rub the antiseptic into the skin you have to purchase it at the store where you "put the lotion in the basket".

And I'm in the Maureen club - the HP answer was the one that made me laugh out loud.

Kanrei said...

Please explain, in detail, how it is you know Passions had a monkey and what they named it.

leelee said...

lol...I don't know which is funnier the post of the comments. I need to get here earlier so I can compete..

Too fUnny!

HUGS!

VE said...

queen goob - True; but technicalities against Buffalo Bill are difficult to enforce. Regis might have had his skin taken off...

kan - You are so clever. You know VE doesn't watch TV. It's like an impossibility that he would know such trivial information. But remember his blog name. He lives by it. He likes talking about himself in 3rd person. He had his researchers do just that: research! Mu ha ha.

leelee - Yes, it can get a bit crazy and fun here in the comments, can't it?

Alan Smithee said...

Alan Smithee recalls that Norm Macdonald proved himself to be far smarter than people thought.

Jacki said...

Love the Yoda and Harry Potter.

VE said...

alan smithee - You are apparently smarter than me too because I didn't catch the connection here. Is Norm MacDonald Ronald's clown brother?

jackie - I chuckle at the HP one; it started the post when I thought of it.

Serena Joy said...

It saddens me, it does, that Yoda didn't win. I hope he gets another crack at it. I think the Force was just off that day.

Also, I'm fascinated to learn that a soap has a monkey. I should quit my job and watch more daytime TV.:)

Sornie said...

Loving Homer because, sadly, I can relate to him. And it's not because I'm yellow-skinned.

VE said...

sj - I know. Everyone wanted Yoda to win. But he is older now and not so strong with the force as he was...

sornie - Yes, there is a bit of Homer in all of us; some more than others ;)

Uncivil said...

Woooohoooo!
Just catching up on your blog. I don't know how in the hell you come up with all this funny stuff?

It rubs the lotion on it's shrinkage?...wait a minute.... I'm getting all the posts confused?????

VE said...

uncivil - See you got it. I love your VE post mix-up. Excellent!!!

EmmaK said...

I often wonder if Regis is dead and has a hand up his arse to animate him. Why is he still on TV? He's crap.

C said...

Oh my goodness!!!! These are fantastic!!! Thanks for the laughs :)

BTW, you won a little prize for the movie quiz. If you e-mail me your details I can send your prize to you.

Megan said...

Good stuff, VE. I agree the Potter one is the best. Humorous totalus!

VE said...

emmak - But he's so FUN for blog posting. Ha ha ha

c - Wow, I won a major prize? Is it a leg lamp?

megan - You have chosen wisely!

Lakota said...

Darn it. No E.T? He woulda won.

VE is funny, funny man. Lakota likes VE's funny post. Lakota thinks his third person speak is contagious.

VE said...

lakota - See it is contagious. I think I stole it from Alan Smithee though. I'd better give hime the original credit.

Anndi said...

I'm amazed Regis could pronounce Gollum...

VE said...

anndi - Actually, he had a stunt double voice over...

Bee said...

Okay, this is how much of a dumb-ass I am. I looked at Harry and kept thinking who the heck is Harry?
See? I'm a dumb-ass.

Bee said...

I should have said, 'Dumb-ass, I am!"

Kelley said...

espresso petroleum!

Bwaaaaa haaaa haaaaaa!

Pure genius my mad little friend.

Eb the Celeb said...

lmfao

very creative

Mother Theresa said...

Espresso, petroleum! That's the best. Good thing he didn't conjure that up, what a horrible mix. You, on the other hand, have a real talent for conjuring up some hilarious ideas. Humorus apparate!

Matt-Man said...

Buffalo Bill could have phoned Hannibal Lecter but you know the good Doctor would have demanded a little quid pro quo. Cheers VE!!

RED MOJO said...

Are you sure Homer's answer was right, I mean, I know there's no such thing as elves or eskimos, but I think gremlins are real. They named a car after them!

VE said...

bee - I'm sending you to Hogwarts for some tutoring!!!

kelley - Yeah, that was the only gem here.

eb - Glad you enjoyed

mother theresa - I like the new alias name. I feel like I have to be on my best behaviour around you now though!

matt-man - That's very true. And I kind of like keeping my liver...

red mojo - It was a stretch but the judges ruled him correct. Most of the world is still in denial on the Gremlin; same as the AMC Pacer. They must be an urban myth; how could something so ugly have ever been made...
