Movie Day: 01.19.2010

Stats and Analysis

Please note: the following is entirely unscientific and I make no claims to its accuracy. I'm sorry if I misnamed, besmirched, or omitted you or your intended movie.

150 - Number of Whiskeroonis unquestionably participating in theme on Jan. 19th

5 - Number of Whiskeroonis not included above who could arguably have been participating in theme on Jan. 19th (not technically evoking a specific movie but sort of circling around the margins of the theme)

150 / 39.47% / 66.96% - Number of Posters categorically participating in theme, as a percent of total Active Beards and of total Jan. 19th posters

155 / 40.79% / 69.20% - Number of Posters categorically participating and/or marginally participating in theme, as a percent of total Active Beards and of total Jan. 19th posters

All Arguable Theme Particpants:

k_bone - "faux movie" lines?
mc sauce - failed movie attempt (unrevealed) but ThatGuy points out resemblance to I Like Killing Flies movie poster
blackbeard - Kingpin and Witness were suggested
Jaymz! - failed Milo & Otis
mercantilever - He suggests he is, but never reveals
