The Great Salute Your Shorts Debate: Michael vs. Pinksy

michael_vs_pinsky

In Season One, the new camper was the blond, athletic Michael Stein. In Season Two, after Michael left camp due to a case of the chicken pox, viewers were introduced to the floppy-haired, smooth talkin’ Ronnie Pinsky. Budnick ran both of their shorts up the flagpole. However, this is the only similarity between the two characters. SYS fans are divided, placing the debate over Michael and Pinksy alongside arguments about Mike vs. Joel and Claudia Wells vs. Elisabeth Shue.

Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Wednesday

camper_sponge_harris

Sponge Harris

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is the camp genius—Sponge Harris. The rumor is that if you squeeze his head, random bits of information will leak out. Smart beyond his years, he has developed a rather astute assessment of camp, noting, “The food bites, bugs bite, activities bite, everything bites!” Of course, we can’t use this slogan in our marketing and recruiting efforts! Poor Sponge often has the best of intentions, such as starting a camp newspaper and trying to gain weight for the camp’s wrestling team, but is usually taken advantage of by Budnick and/or Pinsky. And who could forget the time the entire camp made him stay awake so he could win a radio trivia contest? Ah, Sponge, we salute you!

Salute Your Shorts FAQ

sys_singing

Some of you have never heard or even seen an episode of Salute Your Shorts. For those of you poor bastards who were deprived of this show, I have created a Salute Your Shorts FAQ:

What is Salute Your Shorts?
Salute Your Shorts is a early 90’s cable show that aired for two seasons on Nickelodeon. The cable channel began producing a number of good shows with kids as the stars. They were labeled “Nickcoms”

Was that the show with the two brothers named Pete?
No, that was the other good Nickcom called The Adventures of Pete and Pete. There was also Clarissa Explains it All, You Can’t Do That on Television and the most boring sitcom on the planet, Hey Dude!

Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Tuesday

camper_dina_alexander

Dina Alexander

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is Dina Alexander. Her family has a zillion dollars, so she can afford to work on her tan and read magazines all summer. When she is not out sunbathing, she spends her time gushing about her favorite singer, Jamie Mallet, Jr., and avoiding Donkeylips’ drooling advances. Many around camp would label her as the camp’s “hottie.” Not me, of course, as I am a fully-grown adult with some type of doctoral degree that enables me to run a camp without ever being seen. Anyway, Dina once played the lead in our camp’s production of Cinderella with disastrous results, and it was rumored that she had dinner with Janet Jackson. They had “Norwegian salmon, all the way from Norwege.” She may not be the sharpest arrowhead at the archery range, but she has spunk and certainly has broken a few hearts.

Dr. Kahn’s Camper of the Day – Monday

camper_bobby_budnick

Bobby Budnick

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is our resident troublemaker—Robert “Bobby” Budnick. He is known for his carefully crafted mullet and his love of camouflage coats and Megadeth. Be weary of his schemes and his crazy stories about Zeke the Plumber. Budnick is an expert at feigning sick and never passes up an opportunity to run a new kid’s shorts up the flagpole, much to the chagrin of his arch nemesis, counselor Kevin Lee. However, he knows his limits. At one time, he thought Dina was the perfect girl, but, in the end, he could not let her take away his most prized possession: his long red hair. He was last seen being pushed aside in a video arcade by the T-1000 in Terminator 2.
