On duty as a customer-service rep for a car-rental company,
I took a call from a driver who needed a tow. He was
stranded on a busy highway, but he didn’t know the make of
the car he was driving. I asked again for a more detailed
description beyond a “blue, four-door sedan.”
“It’s the one on fire,” he replied.

I bet it was really tough being an Apostle of Jesus. What if
you wanted a day off?
You ring up Jesus and say, “Jesus, I’m sick today, running a
little fever and feeling congested so I won’t be able to make

Answer:  Out of Africa!
In this scene Danish Baroness Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep) is saying goodbye to her friend and eventual lover, adventurer Denys Finch-Hatton (Robert Redford). At dinner the evening before, she had completed a made-up story started by Denys. He says line one and Karen replies with line two. This movie tells the true story of Karen (who wrote under the pseudonym of Isak Dinesen). She had gone to British East Africa (now called Kenya) in 1913 to be married to her Swedish friend Bror (Klaus Maria Brandauer), but it was a marriage of convenience and she grew to love Denys.
