  1. Am I the only one who’s never realized that Welsh is just rot13’d English?

  2. 8 and 10, but only because they’re bleeding obvious.

    • Demerits for not getting #2. I expect better from you, Mr. Schilling.

      • I haven’t seen that since it first came out. I’ll grant you, I should have gotten 4 (Gubhtu vg zvtug unir orra fnvq ol Cvcre Ynhevr.).

  3. I’ve seen 2, 5, 7, and 8. (Edit: and 9! I loved 9!)

    I’m going to guess the rest.

    • Oh, if you’ve never seen 1. You gotta see 1. I’ll bring it to Vegas.

  4. I got 6, 7 and 8, but none of the others off the top of my head. And one movie not of those three has got to be in there, but I don’t know which it is.

      • Dammit man, you’re making me crazy. I can’t figure out which movie.
