On the subject of kiddie amusements how about an epic battle in one of those ball pools, with the millions of multicolored softball sized balls?

Oooh, and all of the black balls are actually filled with some kind of biological weapon, so the agents need to be careful about which balls they break.

This would be awesome.  How many other times would you be able to have control bellow "AGENTS! WE NEED YOU TO SECURE THOSE BALLS!" :)

Well, there's also the scenario where a bioweapon is being distributed through some salted nuts...  :-[

I do believe Mr. Anderson means chocolate salted balls.

I should note now that I do NOT aprove of editing other people's text within a quote box that attributes the modifed text to the original poster. It is a bad, bad habbit and should be avoided here. Removing the tag from the quote box that indicates another person as the author is sufficent to avoid this issue.

Thanks!

Not meaning to diss your idea or anything. It was simply intended as a harmless pop cultural reference inspired by all the, ahem, ball-play.

I know. Hadn't mentioned it before, but it's a pattern of forumn interaction I heartily dislike - literally putting words in other folks mouths. Probably needs to go into FAQ.

That is good to know, when I make such quotes in the future I will endeavor to make the 'quoted' name as farcical as the 'quote'.

Well, I've occasionally been guilty of it myself, so no hard feelings on my part, fwiw.

Unfortunately, that's part of my job description as a sports writer. Coaches and players give some really butchered quotes at times. My job is to make them sound intelligent and smart. Maybe I should go into speech writing.

It would explain why most High and Middle School coaches don't teach English. And to quote Holly (of "Red Dwarf" fame), "I got an IQ of 2,000. It's not much, it's only the combined IQ of 2,000 PE teachers."
Work done by an officer's doppleganger in a parallel universe cannot be claimed as overtime.

A greasy hotel kitchen with dozens of fly strips hanging from the ceiling.  :o (Jump up on a table to kick the bad guy, and.... 'Oh my god! What have I got in my hair? Ewww!')

HAHA! Shouldn't be a problem, you just need to start swinging the strips around as improvised weapons.

Heh, and following an activated Critical Failure: 'Oh my God! It's stuck to my hands, it's stuck to my hands! Ewww!' (Okay, so the character is easily disturbed.... :P )

The Auld Grump, a well used fly strip is pretty disgusting though!
