The Points Don't Matter

I love the old TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway. It's basically an improv show with lots of input from the audience. The host, Drew Carey, give out points to the performers although the points don't matter. He always start the show saying "Welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway, the show where everything is made up and the points don't count, like..." He would complete the sentence by giving an example of something that does not matter. I recently made up a few more that my readers can easily identify with:
  1. ...like the pardon promised to some guy by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich when he leaves office.
  2. ...like lanterns that run on solar energy but the emergency you are in is a nuclear winter.
  3. ...like a Windows virus downloaded by a stock iMac computer.
  4. ...like responses in Yahoo!Answers that just say "idk" ("I don't know")
  5. ...like following 1,000 people on Twitter and all of them post umpteen times a day.
  6. ...like letting Windows to Repair your malfunctioning wireless connection.
  7. ...like being Employee of the Month when your job is already scheduled to be moved to Mumbai.
  8. ...like Vietnamese Boat People hoping Malaysian or Indonesian Coast Guard to aid them as part of their job (Sure they will aid but they will also rob you of any jewelry or whatever they can take.)
  9. ...like the New York City subway map on weekends, when there usually are many route changes as result of constructions.
  10. ...like telling your children to clean up while they are engrossed in their video games.
Do you have any of your own?
