Corpse Run 198: Legends of the weaker teammate
There’s a really good chance that I’m grasping at straws with this one; if you’re either a bit younger or older than I am, you might not be familiar with the Nickelodeon game show Legends of the Hidden Temple.
LofHT would pit multiple two kid teams against each other in elimination games with a Mayan/Aztec/Whatever theme in order to earn the right to enter the Hidden Temple and locate a lost artifact, winning them the grand prize (usually a vacation somewhere). Now, in order to make it all the way to the final round, a team will generally be significantly more athletic than its competition.
However, there will almost always be one teammate that is more physically gifted than his/her counterpart. Oddly enough, the lesser teammate ALWAYS goes first into the temple, and will more often than not cause the team to lose the grand prize.
It used to drive me nuts as a kid.
So, easter was yesterday, and while I was home, I unfortunately don’t have anything fun stories to report. I ended up cutting my cousin’s hair, which was strange I guess, but I held the trimmer like I do my pens/pencils, so I was accurate enough.
Or I destroyed his hair… I guess it depends on your perspective. Eep.
