5 of the Funniest Moments from Scot Armstrong's Films

If you've laughed at it, he's probably worked on it. But which are the funniest moments from Scot Armstrong's dick joke oeuvre? We've got five pretty strong candidates from Old School, Starsky and Hutch, Elf and Bad Santa for you to choose from.

Scot's Involvement: Writer (w/ Todd Phillips)
