Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “I never told you, but you sound a little like Dr. Seuss when you’re drunk”.
Answer: The Sixth Sense!
The quote “I never told you, but you sound a little like Dr. Seuss when you’re drunk” comes from the famous opening scene to the movie, “The Sixth Sense” (1999). The quote is referring to the way Malcolm’s voice sounds unstable and out-of-it when he is drunk, kind of like Dr. Seuss’s voice. Malcolm and Anna are having a romantic evening in their room when they realize they’re not alone. Malcolm is shot and the movie starts off with Malcolm trying to help Cole (Haley Joel Osment) sort out his issues with ‘dead people’. Malcolm is portrayed by Bruce Willis, and the film was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is……. Below is a sonnet called “Washington Crossing the Delaware”, written by David Shulman in 1936. Besides being an epic retelling of an epic historical happening, what is so amazing about this poem?
Washington Crossing the Delaware…
A hard, howling, tossing water scene.
Strong tide was washing hero clean.
“How cold!” Weather stings as in anger.
O Silent night shows war ace danger!
The cold waters swashing on in rage.
Redcoats warn slow his hint engage.
When star general’s action wish’d “Go!”
He saw his ragged continentals row.
Ah, he stands – sailor crew went going.
And so this general watches rowing.
He hastens – winter again grows cold.
A wet crew gain Hessian stronghold.
George can’t lose war with’s hands in;
He’s astern – so go alight, crew, and win!
— David Shulman
