T-shirt: "I'm with Stupid" (Organizations, Companies, and Products)

"Well, if it helps you decide on your wardrobe, I'll be wearing an 'I'm with Stupid' T-shirt."

Ah, Cliffie, we love you, and the idea of you standing up in court next to Logan so attired is enticing. Gentle reader, you may be curious to know how we decide on the site what to put in this section. One person lists all the cultural references (or CRs as we affectionately call them) they found in the episode. The episode is then assigned to a writer who goes through the episode themselves and pulls out anything else they find, writes the references up, and submits them for editing. Now, there is a certain backasswardness to this, because, although we prefer to pretend we just threw these together, we do actually research the terms and think about what we write. This takes time and sweat and blood. The editors then discuss whether or not each is actually a CR. Of course, if they decide it isn't, they risk the wrath of the writer who has given her bodily fluids. So you might occasionally find yourself reading a CR that is only a CR in the writer's mind. (For a prime example, according to my colleagues, see the CRs for 2.07 "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner.") Then again, there are times when the writer is faced with something that others swear is a CR but the writer can't for the life of her figure out why, can't find anything to substantiate it, and can't think of anything to write. Dear readers, this is one of those times. (See what I did there?)

2.15 "The Quick and the Wed"
