The following ranked as some of the best:

  • "I've caught the rare SB45 flu."
  • "I broke a tooth opening a beer bottle. I'll need emergency dental surgery."
  • "Food poisoning from too much Black Eyed Peas. No work for me today!"
  • "Joe Buck told me not to work."
  • "My dog has a headache."
  • "I'm deaf after losing all hope for the future of music after the halftime show."
  • "I came down with Fergalicious fever."
  • "I was kidnapped by two intoxicated, rogue, boxhead, dancer robots and was forced to drive around and lovingly feed them popcorn."
