Napoleon Dynamite

Contributed by Cameron Hodge

Looking at the new spring TV line up, I saw the title, “Don’t be Jealous of my Sweet Bod” from Napoleon Dynamite. Now I’ve seen the movie, so I can only imagine what they plan to do with the new animated series. The description reads that the main character is convinced “that he is destined for greatness and blessed with unlimited ‘sweet abilities.’” Wow, the irony. It’s kind of like the full life version of some of the reject contestants on American Idol. You know the ones who explain how they know they are going to be the next Idol, yet they are tone deaf, ugly, and way overweight. I think the closest link would be Kip, Napoleon’s brother. I can’t wait to see the caricature they come up with for him. Do you think his head will be oversized? It’s so sad that we like watching programs like this, but DirecTV HD makes it look so good that we’re hypnotized. Mindless nonsense is distinctly appealing in HD. Anyway, I’m not afraid to admit that I’m going to be watching.

You are the ultimate multi-tasker.

You enjoy being in a group - in fact the bigger the group, the better.

You are an enthusiastic competitor, and you can be a little ruthless when you play games.
