Then be serious in it.

If Zapata could do it, then you can too.

If Pearland wins, then yay. If Dobie wins, then yay. If Cinco Ranch wins, however, I will pull my hair out and jump into a vat of tar :P

It is every decathlete's job to take this as a guarantee.

When you can do it normally, go into Nightmare Mode: Say everything as if you were Babawa Wawa.

Also, why are there serious posts in here when we could be talking about ass and bacon?


I often lie awake in bed at night, wondering this to myself.

Everyone needs to work on their Radio Voice. Never know when you'll have to make an announcement, so BE PREPARED.


Actually, this is good, but it's not comprehensive enough. Work on two other things: your dramatic reading voice, and your ability to maintain a straight face while doing something ridiculous. Think: Monty Python.

this is where i fail

This is where I get the ladies.

Total deadpan is a VITAL skill. Acquire it.

I guess this is simpler than listing multiple ways to acquire said skill...

You get it by PRACTICE and PRACTICE ALONE.

1. Look in the mirror.
2. Say really weird stuff, like about how aliens kidnapped your pet iguana on the night of July 4 as you were distracted by roman candles and kosher hot dogs (saying "hotdogs" as one word).
3. If you laugh, go back to 1. Otherwise, keep saying weird stuff.
4. Then start making really intense facial expressions to mimic an emotion you do not currently feel.
5. If you laugh, go back to 1. Otherwise, keep it up!
6. Once you can talk about how aliens kidnapped your pet iguana on the night of July 4 as you were distracted by roman candles and kosher hot dogs (saying "hotdogs" as one word) without laughing to the mirror, try it on your friends!

To perfect this, STUDY the art and craft of CHRISTOPHER WALKEN and MICHAEL CAINE. Watch MONTY PYTHON and mimic their every move, unless that would get you in trouble and/or arrested. BELIEVE in yourself to the point of delusionality.

alternately, just make a lot of prank phone calls, eventually, after laughing during countless calls, you develop the ability to hold back laughter in really funny situations. Like YLYL threads

Good varsities simply are; I'm honestly not sure there's any sort of rubric or trend.

"Soda" is the "Acadeca" of slang terms for carbonated beverages.

My deadpan has improved greatly in the past year. I can now get people to believe almost anything...

Never let team-mates stay up all night and if they do, DON'T try to cheer them up next morning.
IT WILL TANK THE SCORES!!!
