FAQ 90: bob is a game?

if I lose the bob-game is there anyway to continue playing? are there cheat-codes?


A: Bob is THE game. The game of Life. The end game. The game in which everyone is a winner in the end.

part 2: there are no "losers" in the bob game. You can play whenever you want to and stop whenever you want to.

There aren't really any rules. The previous FAQ citing "rules" was just to give some peace of mind to people who feel uncomfortable without rules.

Since there are no rules, there's no way to cheat. We suppose that changing your name to Bob might be considered "cheating" in some circles (but not in Stonehenge which, as we all now know, is a model of the female external sex organs), but the Council of Bob (COB) has ruled in the past that such "naturalized" Bobs are just peachy keen.

Special to Leonide: I'll be carrying out my sentence in the near future.

Bob, the other day on "The Price is Right," there was a group of people with matching t-shirts. On the fron it said: B.O.B. On the back, it said, "Bunch of Believers"
If you had a t-shirt with B.O.B. on the front, what would the back say?

Ben Franklin, of course!

Edit: And don't you mean Continental Congress, Joe?

FAQ 91: If Bob was a member of the colonial congress, which member would he be?

A: All this talk of "members" is making me flushed. I think I would be Benjamin Franklin, except that I would've electrocuted myself with that stupid kite trick, so someone else would've had to take my place.

Does Bob want to write for the Simpsons? Bob went to an Ivy League school, so that has to help right there. [Smile]

Did Bob ever consider having children?

FAQ 92: Bob, the other day on "The Price is Right," there was a group of people with matching t-shirts. On the fron it said: B.O.B. On the back, it said, "Bunch of Believers"
If you had a t-shirt with B.O.B. on the front, what would the back say?


A: Bob no longer wears T-shirts with logos on them. But if he were to wear one that had the letters "B.O.B." on the front, it would have to say "Big on Barbeque" on the back. The shirt would be size XXXL in order to make the pun work.

FAQ 93: Does Bob want to write for the Simpsons? Bob went to an Ivy League school, so that has to help right there.

A: Bob wants to become famous enough to have a guest appearance on the Simpsons. But he would certainly enjoy writing for them as well. Matt Groening is to cartoons today what the Warner Brothers staff was back in the 1950s.

FAQ 94: Did Bob ever consider having children?

A: Bob hasn't got a womb. And you'd be surprised how this has shaped his life in so many ways.

But, as soon as he finishes collecting enough flasks and Bunsen burners, Bob intends to have a child. And when he does, boy or girl, that child is going into the Boy Scouts. So please stop asking! Would it help if I bought some frekin' cookings from them or something???? Sheesh! Leave me alone!

Alternate answer: I've thought many times that I would make a great dad. The truth is, and she will admit this, my wife would make a terrible mother for reasons that I shant go into here. And I love her more than I love the idea of having children. The choice would've come down to life with her or life with the kids after she left us. So... I made the choice I did.

Ask me in a few years if it was the right one. For now, it seems like the right choice anyway.

FAQ 95: Why does Bob's favorite hat have a stegosaurus on it?

A: The stegosaurus is an ancient symbol of small brained, armour'd defensive goodness. In fact, among the various dinosaurs, the Stegosaurus was known to be good to have around in fight because:
a) he was so stupid he'd stand and take it giving everyone else a chance to run away.
b) He had those weird fin things on his dorsal surface so everyone made fun of him anyway.
c) A good half of his brain was in his tail section so no-one could tell which end was in charge at any given moment.

Alternate answer: I was in summer camp when I was a kid. For some reason, the other kids nick-named me "dinosaur". It wasn't because I was large or stupid, it was because I could always catch the ball in dodge ball or "Nationsball" as we sometimes called it. If you caught the ball, then the guy who threw it was out, and not you. Even the camp counselors used to get "out" when I was there.

I look back on that summer fondly because I was accepted in a group for the first time that I could recall (I was not part of the cool kids in my school) and because I kissed a girl for the first time. Or should I say, she first kissed me. It was underwater! I freaked out! But still, it counts as a first kiss in most of the books I've read.
