Handshakefulness

Tonight marked the first rerun of the 30 Rock episode “Retreat to Move Forward.” Aside from being a thoroughly funny episode, it is also notably the one whose plot involves the Wikipedia profile for Janis Joplin being edited to include such misinformation as that her legs bent the wrong way, she speedwalked everywhere, she ate cats, she feared toilets, and that she had a signature cocktail made from cherry juice, buttermilk, and tequila, all in an effort to make Jane Krakowski’s character appear stupid.



The last first time the episode aired, Joplin’s actual Wikipedia page had to be locked to protect it from vandalism inspired the show. Tonight, the Wikipedia nerds are on high alert since they realized that the episode was airing again. This in itself strikes me a damn hilarious, but one particular discussion on the article’s take page took the cake.

Oh, coprophobia, when will you stop being relevant?

Alternate title for this post: “Robot Penis.”

    anyone know the "Six Sigma" characteristics outlined in the episode?

    Teamwork, something, something, Brutality, Handshakefulness and Male Enhancement are what I recall.

  2. Not sure, but the episodes are on Hulu. You could just re-watch it and get your answer there.
