About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).

I finished this one in five. It’s my first finish in five in three days. The last time I got a five was Saturday, November 26. If I hadn’t gotten this one, I’d have been pissed.

I finished this one in three. It’s my first finish in three in two days. The last time I got a three was Friday, November 25. It’s weird that Friday’s was LIBEL, and today’s is LABEL. Seems a little sloppy. Or lazy.

The Jerk (1979) Drinking Game

(The Jerk poster from The Movie Database)

Please drink responsibly no matter what you choose to drink. Even too much water can kill you.

I couldn’t find any drinking game related the 1979 film The Jerk, starring Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. This is a surprise to me because I know how to use search engines, and The Jerk is widely held as one of the funniest movies of all time. Even the late Roger Ebert said, “‘The Jerk’ is almost entirely a movie of Funny Hats.

So why couldn’t I find a drinking game in a hurry? I don’t know! But I made one and decided to post it so I could find it later. Future me will thank me later.

What I came up with is to drink when any of the following happens:

  • Navin travels to a new place
  • Navin learns an obvious lesson
  • Navin gets paid
  • Navin sends money home
  • The dog’s name is said
  • Anyone drinks onscreen
  • “Special purpose”
