Brain Age 2: "Blue Dammit. BLUE!"

I found this article by way of Kotaku. And where the Kotaku author wasn't exactly kind in his/her estimation of Nicole Kidman, his/her comment about the actress trying to find a "ladylike fashion" for screaming "BLUE" at the screen, rang so true with me I couldn't resist illustrating the scene. So, I stole it.

I remember Taks and I both playing Brain Age on the DS, and we both refused to play the color-calling section because the system had such a hard time recognizing the word blue. I'm loathe to admit it, but at one point I did scream "BROO" at the DS*. It was terrible and I was instantly ashamed of myself. But, it freakin' worked so how ashamed should I be?

* I blame Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon 4 for this, 100%.
