WELCOME to TUESDAY FEBRUARY 2, 2021
Here’s the Story…..
A frog goes to a fortune teller to find out whether he’ll ever meet his princess. The fortune-teller looks into her crystal ball for a few moments and then says to the frog, “Well I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which would you like to hear first?“
“Let me have the good news first,” said the frog.
“Well, you’re going to meet the most beautiful girl in the world,” said the fortune-teller. “She will be interested in you and she will want to know all about you. In fact she will
want you to open up for her and you will give her your heart.“
“That sounds fantastic,” said the frog, “but what’s the bad news then?“
“You’re going to meet her in her Biology class,” replied the fortune-teller. 😳
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Have a HAPPY TUESDAY people, stay safe,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Tell me I’m a good man.” “You ARE.”
Answer: Saving Private Ryan!
In the events leading up to this scene, Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) and a squad of soldiers in World War II are sent to try and locate Private James Ryan (Matt Damon) after a clerk notices his three brothers have recently been killed. However, Ryan does not want to abandon his fellow soldiers when he is told by Captain Miller that he is going home. As he says when informed of the deaths of his brothers, “You can tell her [his mother] that when you found me, I was with the only brothers I had left. And that there was no way I was deserting them. I think she’d understand that.” In this scene, an old James Ryan is looking at Captain Miller’s gravestone in the American Cemetery in Normandy and remembering his dying words, “James, earn this… earn it.” He turns to his wife and says line one. She replies back with line two. In the 1999 Academy Awards “Saving Private Ryan” won five Oscars and was nominated for six more, including Best Picture (but lost to “Shakespeare in Love”). This movie was based on the true story of the Niland brothers.

There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?
1) ales in Madrid & to refuse javelins
2) sluggish crawl & insane jump

Tuesday’s Quizzler is…….
Greg, Jane, Amy, Steve, and Katie are five excellent students who attend G. Neus Sr. High. About to graduate, they have each been given a subject and school award. It is up to you, their classmate, to find out which awards each student received and which teacher taught them.
One final note: A valedictorian is the student at the top of the class (with the best grades.) A salutatorian is “second place” and the margin between the two is often very narrow.
- The five students are Jane, the artist, the class president, Greg, and the boy who has Ms. Wint as a teacher.
- With one B on his report card, Steve just barely missed being top of his class. Instead, Jane got the honor.
- The math genius has Ms. Brown as a teacher, while Amy is taught by Mrs. Colt.
- Jane and Amy, who do not speak French, often hang out with the artist during lunch.
- The school awards were the one that went to Greg, the Silver Knight award, the one awarded to the amateur scientist, Steve’s award, and the award given to the student taught by Mr. Allen.
- Katie is not taught by Mr. Allen.
