Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Jimmy: ‘Hey, Mike! How’s your new pet fish doing? You told me he was really something special.’  Mike: ‘To tell the truth, I’m really disappointed in him. The guy who sold him to me said I could teach him to sing like a bird.’ Jimmy: ‘What? Let me get this straight… You bought a fish because you thought you could teach him to sing like a bird?’ Mike: ‘Well, yeah. After all, you know, he’s a parrot fish.’ Jimmy: ‘Now listen, Mike, while you might be able to teach a parrot to sing, you’re never going to get anywhere with a parrot fish.’ Mike: ‘That’s what you think! It just so happens this fish CAN sing. The thing is, he’s terribly off-key and it’s driving me crazy. Do you know how hard it is to tuna fish?’  


Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with Caesar.”
Answer:   In the 1953 film ‘Julius Caesar’, based on Shakespeare’s play of the same name, Marlon Brando delivered a speech designed to inflame the people of Rome to demand justice for their slain leader. Mark Antony, one of Julius Caesar’s friends and supporters, had accompanied him as he went to the senate on that fateful Ides of March. After the assassination, he cradled his friend’s body in his arms, according to Shakespeare. Brutus (played by James Mason) and Cassius (played by John Gielgud) were among those who assassinated Caesar, fearing that he was becoming too powerful, and might abuse that power to the detriment of the state. At least, that was the story used to convince Brutus, Caesar’s friend, to join them. Following the assassination on the floor of the Senate, Brutus makes an impassioned speech to convince the people of Rome that it was for their benefit.
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
” I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted, if I could hit ’em, but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird…Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don’t do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat people’s gardens, don’t nest in the corncribs, they don’t do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us.”
