another round of Q and A madness

Another Friday means another round of this madness.  Other madness happened herehere and here.  Oh, and here too.

Over the years I’ve incorporated an abundance of film dialogue into my day to day lingo.  The following is a useful guide parody I’ve put together of situations you may find yourself in and the some (in)appropriate and/or completely silly responses.

You probably shouldn’t ever use most of these.*  However, I’ve used many of them and the rest I’m just waiting for the perfect opportunity.

*The Matticus Kingdom published this list for entertainment purposes only.  We do not dispense with advice we think people should ever heed and cannot be held responsible for any resulting slaps across the face, puzzled looks, loss of friends, tarnished reputation, improved reputation for that matter, closets that were once skeleton free no longer being so, or other unpleasantness that may result from following these guidelines.  Proceed at your own risk, here there be monsters.  Don’t try this at home kids.  Insert additional typical “hold harmless” verbiage here.   Someone finally commented on all the silliness going on down here last week! I thought about deleting it this week to see if anyone would notice it’s abscence but didn’t want to deprive anyone of this last final bit of silly.

    What do you say when you’re cornered by hoodlums and you have to muster as much bravado to rattle them when they ask you who the hell do you think you are?
    “Yes! But, you can’t just say it, man. You’ve gotta feel it in you’re blood and guts! If you wanna rock, you gotta break the rules. You gotta get mad at the man! And right now, I’m the man. That’s right, I’m the man, and who’s got the guts to tell me off? Huh? Who’s gonna tell me off?”
    Dewey Finn (Jack Black) The School of Rock
