Becky was in rare form with her Best Intentionally Funny Answers of the Week. When I asked her for the subtitle for #13, these were some of her responses: Air Bud for the Extra Lick, Air Bud: Hump and Run Coverage, and Air Bud Ruffs the Passer.

For #15, her answer was Girls Just Want to Have Fumbles. Her answer is even funnier if you're familiar with this Helen Hunt film
