The Neverending Q and A

"Oh no she didn't!"  *snap, snap, snap*

Tsk, tsk, I haven’t even gotten on to any themes yet!  Soon there will be superhero movie Q and A’s, and western movie Q and A’s, and baseball movie Q and A’s, and…  Well, you get the point, because you’ve already been following the madness here, and here, and here, and here.  Once I’ve completely exhausted movies, I can just pick up a few books and send the series that way.  Once I’m done with books I can listen to a few more albums and send the series that way.  By then I’ll have watched a whole new slew of movies to have pulled dialogue from and the cycle will being again.

Muahahahahahaha.
Muahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
Muahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Now, where are my sharks with the laser beams attached to their heads?
(Dr. Evil, Austin Powers, as if you didn’t already know.)

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.

Q and A parody (take 2)

This is the second installment in a new series of parody posts that I started earlier this week with some humorous lyrics.

Over the years I’ve incorporated an abundance of movie 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 these.*  However, I have.  Every.  Single.  One.

Q: What do you say when someone asks why you did something foolish?
A: “It’s like this fellow I knew in El Paso.  One day, he just took all his clothes off and jumped in a mess of cactus.  I asked him that same question, ‘Why?’ … He said, ‘It seemed like a good idea at the time.'”
– Vin – The Magnificent Seven

Q: What do you say when you see someone driving a super flashy car?
A: “Where does he get those wonderful toys?”

Q: What do you say when someone questions your coolness?
A: “I’m with it.  I’m hip.”

Q: What do you say when you are at a social event and someone playing the bagpipes has had too much to drink?
A: “We have a piper down, I repeat, a piper is down!”

Q: What do you say when someone asks your name?
A: “There are some who call me… Tim.”
– Tim – Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Q: What do you say when someone has done a good job?
A: “That’ll do, Donkey.  That’ll do.
– Shrek – Shrek
or
A: “That’ll do pig.  That’ll do.”
– Farmer Hoggett – Babe

“Harriet, sweet Harriet..”

What do you mean you’ve never been to a social event that had a bagpiper who drank too much?  We’ll you’re missing out.

Bonus question – how many Mike Myers references did I make?

This, along with the previous installment, are by no means complete lists, but they should be enough to get you through most of life’s experiences.  Well, I’ve found them useful anyway.

’tis the season for awards

I was nominated for this:
very-inspiring-blogger-award

By:
The numpty novice with a compact camera and a laptop also known as merleytwister

While deeply honored to be nominated for the award I will once again not be following through with the acceptance procedures.  There are reasons for that of course, having to do with the math of it all and the exponential rate of nominations taking over the world, but mentioning the nomination is a great way introduce my faithful readers to other blogs they may enjoy.

So, if you like pictures and words working together in an intimate dance, both taking turns leading and following, with dazzling spins, steps, twirls, lifts and throws, sometimes a waltz and sometimes a swing, then you should really stop reading my words right now and go check out what merleytwister has to offer:

The elegant, shimmering, moments captured in film, the words framing and shaping our view of the images that flash in front of our eyes, a spectacle, a miracle, an experience worth having and coming back to time after time.

Still here?  Go!  Go!  Go!

I promise you won’t be disappointed.*
