Did any of you watch the Nickelodeon show "Double Dare"? For those of you who didn't, it was basically a kid's game show produced by middle-aged men with food fetishes. The contestants would answer a series of insultingly easy questions (to keep it competitive, they selected THE dumbest kids to compete that they could find), they'd compete in "physical challenges (i.e.: excuses to dump food and goop on the kids), and the winners would do an obstacle course where they'd collect flags which represented prizes. The further they got, the more valuable the prizes became.
Part of the obstacle course involved a slide that kids had to climb up to retrieve a flag. The middle of the slide was coated in whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and I believe semen. Whatever it was, it made the slide super-slippery; slippery to the point that if you tried to climb up the middle of it, you basically ruined any chances of advancing in the course because you were now covered in shit and would be stuck at that particular obstacle spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. Kids eventually realized that if you climbed up the side and avoided all the crap, you were home free and the rest of the course was fairly easy. Any person paying attention realized this and yet there were still these morons that fucked it up and would get stuck winning next to nothing due to their lack of preparation (watching a few episodes to get a handle on the finer points). I used to scream at these imbeciles for their ignorance, knowing that if I weren't so apathetic and had actually gotten off my lazy ass and applied to be on the show, I would've totally kicked ass.
