Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…

A rancher goes to the bank to borrow money to buy a bull so
he can increase his stock. The transaction is made and the
banker who lent the money comes by a week later to see how
his investment is doing. The farmer complains that the bull
just eats grass and won’t even look at the cows. The banker
suggests that a veterinarian have a look at the bull.

The next week the banker returns to see if the vet helped.
The farmer looks very pleased: “The bull has taken care of
all my cows, broke through the fence, and has even serviced
all my neighbor’s cows!”
“Wow,” says the banker, “what did the vet do to that bull?”
“Just gave him some pills,” replied the farmer.
“What kind of pills?” asked the banker.
“I don’t know, but they sort of taste like peppermint.” 😳😎


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

“But if he is to die, then let him die and decrease the surplus population.”
“You use my own words against me.”

Answer:   A Christmas Carol!
In this scene Ebenezer Scrooge (George C. Scott) and the Ghost of Christmas Present (Edward Woodward) are observing (both unseen and unheard) the Christmas dinner of the Bob Cratchit family. When Scrooge asks if their crippled son Tiny Tim will get better, the Ghost says he sees an empty space at the table in the future and mockingly adds line one. Scrooge winces and replies with line two, remembering his words to solicitors seeking aid for the poor. This wonderful holiday movie is based on a classic short story by English author Charles Dickens. A miserly old man, who considers Christmas humbug, is taught the true meaning and spirit of the season by three ghosts who show him his own past and present and what the future holds for him if he doesn’t change his ways. There have been numerous versions of this movie made over the years. My favorite (of the ones I’ve seen) is this one (with George C. Scott as Scrooge).

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