Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: Barney at the gross-out contest. He goes onstage, drinks a whole six-pack of Duff, and burps. The audience cheers and he gets scored pretty high for it, but that wasn't what he wanted to do. He was apparently going to juggle chickens, before getting shooed offstage. Ironically, he probably got a better score than if he ''had'' juggled chickens.
