Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….

After one of the machines at work suddenly went on the fritz,
our boss called the repair service and asked to speak to the
manager, Ahmed.

“Hello, Ed speaking. How can I help you?” said the guy who
answered the phone.

“Sorry,” said my boss. “I was looking for Ahmed.”

“This is Ahmed,” came the reply. “How can I help you?”

“I thought you just said your name was Ed?” asked my boss.

“It is. But whenever I say ‘Ahmed,’ people think I’m saying,
‘I’m Ed.’ So I figured it’s just easier to be Ed.” 😁

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???“…and they mostly come at night…mostly.”

Answer: Newt (Aliens)
“Aliens”, the Academy Award-winning film proceeding Ridley Scott’s popular 1979 hit, “Alien”, starred Sigourney Weaver in the main role as Ellen Ripley (which was also nominated for Best Actress). The film, released in 1986, was as great, if not better, than the original as Ripley returns to the alien planet in order to save a colony who has lost contact with Earth. Something is amiss. When they arrive, the only survivor of the alien attack, Newt, is found inside the building. Ripley goes to extreme lengths to save Newt from the various pitfalls and setbacks of the horrible alien planet, including making a solo trip into the alien queen’s lair to save the girl. The quote in question was mentioned by Newt as the survivors of the initial attack (once they first arrive) try to escape the building and depart in their shuttle. However, the aliens get there first, kill the pilot, and cause the shuttle to come crashing to the ground. Newt warns the others: “We’d better get back, ’cause it’ll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night… mostly.”
