Memorial Day Weekend Humility

It is very easy to think that we know more than we do.

That said, this is what I do know.

I am thankful to live in America. I can freely type my thoughts in public thanks to those who came before me.

Ok mark, where do you find this stuf????? Too funny, no, Three funny!

From last post my refernce was to "Stand by Me" and the pie eating contest.

Your crow smoking reference reminds me of an exchange in the film "Real Men" which is a MUST see:
"What, you smoke!?"
"Only after sex Bob."
"Well at least its not too much."
"No, about a pack a day."

I loved Real Men! Very under-rated!

It's a great movie for people who don't take life all that seriously, as are most of the John Cusack movies too.

glad you brought that up. Too many want to be hedged or whatever for all kinds of things, just chillax guys!

So glad you have seen Real Men;
"Who are those clowns?"
and then guys in clown suits come to fight, too funny.

"You don't have to test it, Bob. The gun is empty."

The Big Hit is still my favorite of the bunch though.

The Big Hit

In one hysterical scene, the kidnappers force their victim to read a ransom note into a tape recorder. But their note is so filled with typos that the message becomes gibberish: "These men mean businesses."

Her: "Father, I have been abduct. I am fine."

Him: "Abducted."

Her: "It says abduct."

This continues for a bit as she works through the other typos such as the "son" of one million "doolars" and so on, lol.

Her: "These men mean businesses."

Her: "Who wrote this?"

Him: "CRUNCH!"

Her: "It says businesses. That's what it says. You told me to read the note. You never said to improv it."

Him: "Oh improv? What are you Meryl f***ing Streep? Okay, improv the note."

Her: "These sexually frustrated degenerate losers mean business."
