Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…
Olympic Peninsula. We were eager to visit the rain forests
near the coast, but we heard that snow slides had made
some of the roads impassable. Although apprehensive about
the conditions we might run into, we drove on.
Sure enough, we had gone only a short way up the High Rain
Forest road when we saw a sign: “Ice 10 miles.” Five miles
farther on there was another: “Ice 5 miles.” The next one
was: “Ice 1/2 mile.” We practically crept that half-mile.
We came to the last sign. It was outside a small grocery,
and it read: “Ice 75 cents.” 😱😳😁
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“What trouble are you talking about?”
In this scene Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Mammy (Hattie McDaniel) are discussing where Scarlett should temporarily move to when the widowed Scarlett wanted to move because she is bored at home (because of the stringent mourning rules in the South at that time). When Mammy says line one, Scarlett pretends to not understand what she means and says line two. Mammy says, “You know what trouble I’s talkin’ ’bout. I’s talking ’bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He’ll be comin’ to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you sittin’ there waitin’ for him, just like a spider. He belongs to Miss Melanie.” “Gone with the Wind” tells the story of a fictitious strong-willed, manipulative woman and a devilish but realistic man, set against the backdrop of the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction.
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Well… it’s somebody who doesn’t believe there’s a divine being dispensing justice to mankind.” “I’m a pagan, too.”
Friday’s Quizzler is…… A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need only sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?
2) a container for an alcoholic beverage & an insignificant insect
3) a container for a container & the bottom of a coffin
4) a cunning wolf relative & insect foot coverings
2) beer mug & mere bug
3) basket case & casket base
4) sly fox & fly socks
