Have You Ever Walked Out of a Movie?

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I can't remember ever walking out of a movie theater before the closing credits. Maybe I've blocked those bad movies out of my mind. Maybe I'm just cheap. What movies have you marched out of?

2. My dog's name is Bailey. Growing up, our dog was Jake and our cat was Rosie. What I'm trying to tell you is I'm not a very adventurous pet-namer. (Though I should add that Rosie was a dude, information we didn't have during the naming process.) Have you ever had a pet with an interesting name, or a good story behind the moniker?

3. You might have read about one of the questions Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland asked wide receiver Dez Bryant in an interview before the NFL Draft. It was something to the effect of, "Hey, was your mom a prostitute?" It's hard to argue that any answer to that question would help determine how Bryant would fit in the Wildcat offense, and Ireland has since apologized. We've discussed bizarre interviews before, so I'll ask a different question—what's the most inappropriate question you've ever been asked in a work setting? But if you missed the earlier discussion, feel free to weigh in about your best (worst) interview story.

4. Our own Ethan Trex runs a great site called Straight Cash Homey, the world's only website devoted to random sports jerseys. I had my share of obscure player jerseys and t-shirts growing up: Yankee sluggers Kevin Maas, Jack Clark and Mike Pagliarulo come to mind. Did any of you own anything worse?

Enjoy the weekend!
