The TMS staff really need a group photo just like this.

Byron Lee brought the puns to the party when talking about Maisie Williams’s new role on Doctor Who: “That’s a pretty… Stark contrast to her role in Game of Thrones *runs*”

Upon learning that tampons could be useful in the detection of endometrial cancer, Stephanie Lee went there: “Scary Potter and the Tampon of Divination.”

brainmist nailed it this week when looking through ThinkGeek’s April Fool’s products: “All of these are awesome and should be real products. Except the Game of Thrones Clue. It’s unrealistic. Only one person dies in Clue.”

We almost got a new Strongbad e-mail this week, and SomeGuy expressed all our sentiments perfectly: “Come on, fhqwhgads…don’t tease me.”
