I was about to comment how I think I'm the only person on the web who finds McSweeney's not the least bit funny, when the last hot dog thumbs-up entry just cracked me up...

The only other McSweeney bit I've read is "Quotes from either President Bush or Senator Palpatine" and that one wasn't funny either.

In the three months I was in the States last year, I observed that Ebert's grades are over 2. "Thumbs up" is 1/2 and "two thumbs up" is 2/2.

I thought "two thumbs up" meant both Ebert *and* Roeper like the movie (not Roger with both his thumbs in the air)?

Oh, I never thought that. Then I guess we can assume Roeper is a meaner critic than Ebert? :)
