May 12, 2008: Sunday night, 9:15 p.m. CDT. Mitch: Hey, Al. What are you doing? Al: Watching the "Survivor" finale. You? Mitch: Me, too! Can you believe Parvati won? Al: AAA!! I was time shifting it with my Tivo! Now you've ruined the ending and I'm only halfway through the show! Mitch: Sorry! How can I be expected to avoid that?! Al: I dunno... couldn't you yell out spoiler alert or something?
May 14, 2008: Al: Books, TV shows, movies... everything has a spoiler page now. But why would anytone want to use them? Even if you know a spoiler, you can't tell anyone or they'll hate you! You're intentionally making yourself an outcast! Will: People who search for spoilers are already outcasts. Al: I guess it's lonely in their parents' basement.
May 16, 2008: Dana: Al, I have the perfect way for you to avoid movie spoilers. Al: Tell me. Dana: A bucket of sand! Just stick your head in it and you'll never again hear an unwanted rumor! Al: Ha ha. Dana: It also works great for election season!
