G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….

While visiting Annapolis, a lady tourist noticed several students on their hands and knees assessing the courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

“What are they doing?” she asked the tour guide.

“Each year,” he replied with a grin, “the upperclassmen ask the freshmen how many

bricks it took to finish paving this courtyard.”

When they were out of earshot of the freshmen, the curious lady asked the guide: “So, what’s the answer?”

The guide replied: “One.” 😐😎


Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? 

“Your son has a very great talent. I don’t think you are aware how great it is. That he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.”
“He is a very willful boy.”

ANSWER: The Shining!  In the events leading up to this scene, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) has accepted the job of being the winter caretakerfor an isolated Colorado resort hotel, despite hearing a grisly story about a previous caretaker going stir crazy and killing his family. Jack, his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) arrive at the Overlook hotel just as the staff is getting ready to leave. They are shown the kitchen by the resort’s chef Dick Hallorann (Scatman Crothers), who realizes

Danny has the special power of mental telepathy his grandmother used to call “shining.” In this scene a delusional Jack is having a conversation with Delbert Grady (Philip Stone), a butler he thinks is the caretaker who killed his family. Grady says line one and Jack replies with line two. Grady then adds, “Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.” When Jack replies, “It’s his mother. She, uh, interferes” Grady says, “Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don’t mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn’t care for the Overlook at first. One of
them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I “corrected” them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I “corrected” her.” The ominous-sounding music in the opening scene is just wonderful. “The Shining” is one my favorites.
