Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Did you hear about the two guys who decided to try duck hunting? They bought new
outfits and equipment, and went out to a place in the woods where they heard the
hunting was really good. But after several hours of thrashing through the woods, one

caught a single duck. Do you think we’re doing something wrong?”

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “…Chief, you’re about as big as a […] mountain!”

Answer:  One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) is a movie based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Ken Kesey. Both book and movie were critically acclaimed with the movie one of only three movies in the twentieth century to have won the Academy Award Big Five (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Movie and Best Screenplay). Whilst the themes remain similar between book and movie, there are some important differences. In the book Chief Bromden is the narrator who watches the antics of Randle McMurphey’s battles against the orderliness and authority of Nurse Ratched, whereas in the movie, Chief Bromden is a secondary (but still important character), who is presumed to be mute and deaf. So when the Chief speaks two-thirds into the movie (“Hmmm, Juicy Fruit”) we the audience are taken by surprise.

Friday’s Quizzler is…….

Two numbers are given in each sentence that need to be replaced by words. Each word is an anagram of the other, except that one word contains an additional letter that the other word lacks. When this additional letter is removed, each word can be made by using the letters of the other word in each sentence. Based on the clues given in each sentence, do your best to figure out what the two words are. The numbers given in each sentence indicate the number of letters in each word. Some of the words may be formed without rearranging the letters, and the only difference between the words in this case is the one letter that has been added to one of the words.
