(Because we're perplexed, not because he gave us lice or anything.) 

ALSO: Bizarre headlines (TURTLE BURGER!), Jeopardy!

Awesome show this week - but just to point out something. During your last quiz (About whether the Sequel to a movie existed or not.) You got it RIGHT that Bambi 2, does exist, and it is a midquel - but it actually deals with Bambi's DAD and not him with his MUM before the hunter ruins our childhood innocence forever - that's already happened, and the movie is basically Patrick Stewart as Bambi's dad trying to get him a foster deer family. Although I like to think of it as approximately and hour and a half of my life that I will never get back.

Thought I'd point it out, seeing as that was the first disney sequel I ever saw as a kid that made me realize how crappy they really were.

Regarding the Jaws movies, there's also an unofficial Italian-made fifth sequel, called "Jaws 5: Cruel Jaws." You can find the entire film under the "Cruel Jaws" title on Youtube.

@Katlyn - Your comment is amazing. A blend of "Um actually," Disney fandom, and pure frustration over crappiness. So good.
