Funny 115 - version 2.0
Exile Island - multiple episodes
When my wife and I sat down to research the Funny 115, one
of Diana's favorite things about Exile Island was the fact
Shane Powers has a very... um, let's just say unique... way of
You see, Shane doesn't just stand upright with
his back straight like a normal person. Nope. When
standing, he leans back, he tightens his butt, he arches his shoulders,
and he basically sticks his gut out as far as he can.
Which, the first time you see it, sort of gives off the effect
that the very skinny Shane Powers is pregnant.
Shane Powers sitting like a normal person
anyway, here you go. The very first drinking game on the
115. Inspired by my wife Diana, who couldn't make it through
Exile Island without asking, "Why does Shane always pooch out
stomach like that??"
Every time you watch Exile Island, take a
drink every time you see a shot of Shane where it looks like he is
pregnant. See how long it takes before you get wicked drunk.
It probably won't take you that long.
Here are my nine favorite screen caps.

of course normally I wouldn't do an entry where I just sit here and
make fun of some guy who has a beer gut. That's not really
Mario style. That type of entry wouldn't be funny, that sort
entry would just be mean.
But that same logic is exactly why this entry is so freaking
You see, Shane doesn't
actually have a beer gut!
He is one of the skinniest guys who has ever been cast on
Survivor. He's athletic, he's in shape, he is whipcord thin.
He just happens to stand weird. So I have no qualms
nominating Shane Powers and his weird form of kwashiorkor for the #104
slot on the Funny 115.
I mean, come on. How can you not love this?
And yes, I fully expect an Internety next year for being the
comedy countdown on the internet to feature the word "kwashiorkor."
I knew that taking 7th grade science class with Mrs. Hannah
eventually pay off.
