Q and A Candy

This week finds me reminiscing about one of the greats and all the quotes I attribute to him.

All prior incarnations of the Friday Q and A silliness can be found by clicking on this like right here.

Over the years I’ve incorporated a small amount (sarcasm) of movie dialogue into my day-to-day lingo.  This week’s theme, as already discussed, is all about the man, the legend, John Candy.

Q: How should you go about order refreshments for a few friends and yourself?
A: “Who wants an orange whip? Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips”
– Burton Mercer –The Blues Brothers

Q: What do you say to someone who says that the end of the world is near?”
A: “This is it, pay attention.”
– Pvt. Foley – 1941

Q: What do you say when someone asks what you’ve been up to?
A: “Well sir, we were going to this bingo parlor at the YMCA, well one thing led to another, and the instructions got all fouled up…”
– Dewey Oxburger – Stripes

Q: What do you say when someone asks why you don’t have more friends?
A: “I’m a mog: half man, half dog. I’m my own best friend!”
– Barf – Spaceballs

Q: What should you say to someone who is working on something and asks you to be quiet?
A: “Don’t let me stand in your way, please don’t let me stand in your way. The last thing I want to be remembered as is an annoying blabbermouth… You know, nothing grinds my gears worse than some chowderhead that doesn’t know when to keep his big trap shut… If you catch me running off with my mouth, just give me a poke on the chubbs…”
– Del Griffith – Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Q: What should you should say every time you find yourself out of breath and someone asks if you are okay?
A: “Bear… bear… Big Bear… big bear chase meeeeeeee…!”
– Chet Ripley – The Great Outdoors

Q: What do you ask when someone hands you something?
A: “What’s this? An egg?”
– Harry Crumb – Who’s Harry Crumb?

Q: What do you say to someone who doesn’t want to do what you’ve very politely asked them to do?
A: “How would you like to spend the next several nights wondering if your crazy, out-of-work, bum uncle will shave your head while you sleep?”
– Buck Russell – Uncle Buck

Q: What should you say to someone when they are down and out and need a pep talk?
A: “If life hands you a lemon, you gotta crush it into lemonade.”
– Sheriff Bud Boomer – Canadian Bacon

Q: What do you say to someone who says that “have to” win a competition, they “need” the trophy above all else?
A: “But if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.”
– Irv – Cool Runnings

If you haven’t watched each and every one of these movies, we here at the kingdom demand that you go forth and do so immediately.  We’ll wait…


Ah, John Candy how I miss thee.  Comedy just isn’t the same without you.  Here there be monsters, hatchet wielding uncles, characters with unfortunate names, blabber mouths, coaches, tricksters, silliness, memories, and an unconventional ride home in the back of uhaul with a band at Christmas.  Thanks, as always, for playing along.

    • Yeah, that probably is the closest he came… I think he would have done fine. In my mind I can see him making the transition back and forth quite well a la Tom Hanks…

  1. Hi DJ! It would seem you have an endless supply… perhaps one day, I will follow in your giant steps and learn this sarcasm you speak of. Or is it something one must be born with?? Te he he.
    Hey, guess what is premiering this Tuesday here in OZ? Can’t guess? Under the Dome!!! You know what I will be doing? Hope all is well with you and the fam. Forty.

  2. I cried when Candy died, this is quite the fitting homage 😉 hells yeah to Canadian Bacon. Not the gross actual Canadian Bacon though, that sh*te is disgusting…
