Ah, Myst. I loved that game, and Riven too. The good old days.
I say it with a spoon, personally.
No, seriously in print just MST3K, but I think most people IRL I’d talk to about the show settle on “Is that the one with the robots talking over the movie?”
I just go along with it.
I have a new co-worker that saw my MST3K license plate and immediately responded by saying, “PACKERS”!
you mean you have a NEW BEST FRIEND
I use “Mystery Science Theater” in verbal conversations, but I always use MST3K when texting my MSTie bestie, because we’re into the whole brevity thing
Yeah same “mst3k” is too many syllables for normal conversation, especially if I’m not talking to people who already know what that stands for haha
But it does preserve the “mystery” part at least!
Well it’s neck and neck for second place with 88 votes. How will things fare when the tally gets over 100? Only time will tell. And votes. Time and votes.
For all the people who say “MST3K” to strangers, does anyone ever ask you what an “emesty” is?
It sounds uncommonly like amnesty. Amnesty 3000. What would that show be?
I don’t know but I bet it stars an Italian dude in leather, with flowing blonde hair, and driving a muscle car with spikes across a vast wasteland.
Co-starring Fred Williamson with gold lame pirate boots and a scimitar that shoots lasers, plus a winsome child who can read minds.
or who can fix anything.
Okay, I think you’ve just described the sequel to Warriors of the Wasteland.
Or any other movie of the same nature/national origin. At this point, for most of us, it should be kind of like doing Mad Libs.
(I’m fine if they want to skip the sexual assault stuff in all future episodes, though. Replace that with dance-offs or something.)
If talking with like-minded friends, I’ll shorten it to MST.
Any other conversation, it’s MST3K.
If I’m singing along to the theme song, it’s
Mystery Science Theater Three Thou-suuuund guitar twang
That title describes the genre.
How do I say it? Disestablishmentarianism. Pretty much like it’s spelled.
Hiring any more people?
Always, AND, your just down the road. What part of VA are you from?
Depends on the gauge.
(must… not… cast… on…)
