A New Favorite

Formerly I thought "Mansquito" was the most amazing title for a SciFi Original Movie that anyone could ever have thought up. However I now believe the latest one, "Frankenfish," may be even better.

i'm sorry, but no way can Frankenfish top Mansquito. the emphasis is all wrong. in "frankenfish," we emphasize the first syllable, so the rest of the word -- the joke itself -- is deemphasized. whereas with the mighty mansquito, the emphasis is firmly on the middle syllable, just where the joke begins. also, it's just so much fun to say maaaanSQUIto!

my advice is, when you are trying to instill fear of your analytical powers into the hearts of your victims, never refer to yourself as "the dread pirate wannabe" because it ruins the atmosphere of terror, and your victims will probably poke you and run away laughing like prank doorbell-ringers. or at least that's what i hear.
