Cavewoman poll

I went by (the Internet Movie Database) this morning to check on something.  When I got there, I forgot what it was I went looking for.  Perhaps that's an early indicator of senility, but whatchagonna do?  Anyways, toward the bottom of the page, there was a link to their "daily poll."  The poll question was/is:

Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story didn't make this year's Best Documentary Oscar shortlist; are you surprised?

And the possible responses were limited to these:
  • Definitely-I thought it was a guaranteed nominee.
  • I'm surprised- I thought it would win the Oscar.
  • I'm not surprised at all since I don't think it was a good film.
  • I'm not surprised because it sounds more like a publicity move on the part of the Academy.
  • I'm more surprised that Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Crude, or another movie didn't make the shortlist.
  • I'll be surprised if it isn't nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.
I am personally disappointed that the following responses didn't occur to the pollsters at imdb:
  • Is Michael Moore still breathing our air?
  • The number of people who consider Michael Moore relevant, including even those in the Academy, could sit comfortably in a one-seat outhouse.  He is so three years ago.
  • You couldn't pay me to sit through 5 minutes of his America-hating propaganda, unless of course the feature ended with his Braveheart, except for real, y'know?
  • Seriously, is Michael Moore still breathing our air?
Conversely though, they did give me an idea for today's blog-effort.  A poll, kiddoes!

I'll be mounting (good choice of words, considering the possible responses) a poll in the sidebar with the following query: I've written a screenplay to remake my favorite dinosaur movie "1 Million Years B.C."  If you were hired as the casting agent, who would you have play Raquel Welch's part?

Bonus question for extra credit!  I will be gratuitously including the cat-fight scene in my version, so feel free to nominate your "runner-up" or a write-in candidate in the comments section for this role.

Imperative that all recommendations maintain a respectful nod to Ms. Welch!

    Any time I review my stats, this post shows as one of readers' favorites. Perhaps it's just any reference to "cavewoman" draws interest.

    At least one person I know had issues posting a comment, but I'll still encourage write-in preferences if y'all wish. I may even eliminate the word-verification temporarily to foster participation.

    I've forgotten some of the original choices. Jen and Charlize and Anjolina were a few, but the others?
