I know what you are thinking: Matticus, what does SS stand for? Something Stupid. Silly Sisters. Savory Snacks. There are just so many options! But, this week, SS stands for Steven Seagal. That’s right! Musician, martial arts expert, friend of the environment and terrible actor. But, that hasn’t stopped me from pulling in several of his movie quotes into my lexicon.
Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions? Or a theme? Or a specific actor? Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.
(All previous Q and A iterations are here.)
As a reminder: The Q’s are life situations you may find yourself in, and the A’s are the corresponding quotes from movies that you could considering using in those situations if you were mad like me. But, I am a professional Jester, so take that into consideration before trying them on your own.
