Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Coffee and cigarettes, that’s like the breakfast of champions.”
Answer: Blue in the Face!
“Blue in the Face” starred Harvey Keitel, Michael J. Fox and Lily Tomlin. Actor Jim Jarmusch, who plays a character named Bob (no last name), makes this funny, albeit incorrect statement while smoking a cigarette and drinking his morning coffee. He had been discussing why he loves cigarettes and is sitting around with a group of friend who are all sitting around doing the same thing. This part of the dialogue ends and jumps quickly to Paris in the springtime. Much of the dialogue in this feature was ad-libbed.

Justin Case and Auntie Bellum are fellow con artists who deliver coded messages to each other to communicate. Recently Auntie Bellum was put in jail for stealing a rare and expensive diamond. Only a few days after this, Justin Case sent her a friendly letter asking her how she was. On the inside of the envelope of the letter, he hid a code. Yesterday, Auntie Bellum escaped and left the envelope and the letter inside the jail cell. The police did some research and found the code on the inside of the envelope, but they haven’t been able to crack it. Could you help the police find out what the message is?
This is the code:
Answer: The message was “loose bricks in left wall.” The message was put backward with words related to time in between.
Auntie Bellum took out the bricks and escaped in the night. Then, she put the bricks back where they were.
Monday’s Quizzler is…….
A Tom Swifty is a play on words. Tom speaks, and the way he is said to speak is a pun – both meanings are relevant.
e.g. “I love hot dogs”, Tom said frankly. “Frank” connects how he spoke and the hot dog! [Frankfurter!]
The Tom Swifty can also use a phrase or homophone.
e.g. “You didn’t order enough carpet”, said Tom with a cold stare.
“Cold stare” expresses his annoyance and suggests uncarpeted stairs!
Choose one of the listed words or phrases to fill each gap.
