Title: The Cheesiest Legend Story
Post by: PAK Man on July 18, 2006, 09:44:12 AM
What do you think are the cheesiest Legends stories that Olmec has told? For me, the cheesiest has to be Galileo's Cannonball, especially the part at the end where Olmec says Galileo invented pizza by dropping his cannonballs on two cheese and pepperoni sandwiches. Even Kirk thought that was dumb.

Another one that comes to mind is The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu. When someone (I can't remember who) is being punished by Tokugawa Ieyasu, he asks what the punishment is. The person being punished replies, "I'm grounded for three weeks with no TV?"

What do you think are the dumbest stories?

Maybe the Snowcone of Mount Kilmanjaro in Season 3.  Yes, the mountain is snowcapped, but they made it sound like it was a tasty treat.

I never saw the actual Legend, but I'm guessing the Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus was pretty stupid.

I didn't think the Legend was that cheesy (Nostradamus). It was about how the Queen of France lost her dog & Nostradamus (a psychic) told her to look in the woods & the dog leash was floating or whatever. That was all from memory, so I forgot some parts.

Its so obvious that the prop department found a novelty levitating dog leash, and then wrote the entire legend around it.

Actually, the story behind Nostradamous being a psycidc and astronemer is a real legend.

He was an astrologist. Not an astronomer. He studied the stars for fortune-telling purposes, not for scientific.

But then again, the actual deeds of Nostradamus have been exaggerated and altered depending on the source. And when has the Legends crew ever really strived for accuracy, anyways?

I just wished they picked something else for the artifact.

The Golden Pepperoni of Catharine de'Medici (featuring none other than The Great Linguini) comes to mind as a dumb story. Do you expect me to believe that Catharine de'Medici, the Queen of France, had nightmares about her new castle because she ate too much pepperoni, and she tore the castle down because somebody named after pasta told her she would be tormented by nightmares? I think sometimes the writers thought they were funny, when in reality, they weren't. (especially in season three)

I gotta agree, the Golden Pepperoni Story was pretty lame, but i'm still sticking with my above post on the two lamest legends that have been featured on the show.

Personally, i don't really like artifacts that have nothing to do with the stories either. "The Lucky Medallion of Atocha" comes to mind in this instance.... I don't even know what Atocha is because it wasn't even mentioned in the story...

The young maidens Wingding and Ringling.  Say no more.

Another bad Chinese one is "The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl".  If the Empress was going to kill the English guy, then why did she give him a pearl in the first place?

Because she was tricking him into thinking she wasn't going to attack him.

I agree.  "I need a name to scare people" was pretty stupid.

I thought the Ben Frankin key one tonight had a little tackiness in it when he started talking about electric stuff that was only invented later. But it wasn't totally tacky.

Galelio's Cannonball.  You know your story is cheesy when Kirk laughs at it ON CAMERA!  I wonder what Dee thought of having to read that pizza line.

Not to bump the thread, but here's what I think are some of the worst:

The Very Tall Turban of Ahmad Baba

The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard

The Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack

I suppose they couldn't come up with 40 good historical figures for Season 3 and while I'm usually okay with made-up ones, at least they could've made it a little more realistic.  Yeah, a visitor at jail switching clothes with a prisoner will definetely fool everyone.

Acctually it think someone recently tried that with a guard and it acctually worked no one has seen him since

Surprising considering they do nothing to make themselves look like each other physically.

Oh, and about Galileo's Cannonball, it was okay until the "he invented pizza" line.  Emphasis on cheesy.

Actually, the queen sent a servant to talk to Nostradamus, who knew what the servant was about to ask.  He said the dog was being walked by a young woman in Orl?ans.  The servant wondered "How does he do that?" and walked off.  The leash was coated in gold and given to Nostradamus as a gift.  And allegedly, when Nostradamus died the leash began to levitate and it floated randomly until it came to the Temple.

If anyone wants to know something about the episode The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus, I'm the person to call.  It was the first full episode I saw on Nick GaS and I remember almost everything about it.

Yeah, it was one of my first eppys (not on Nick GaS though) too!
