Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Well, you know what they say: if you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!”
Answer: “Steel Magnolias”
The quote is said by Clairee Belcher played by the talented actress, Olympia Dukakis. The scene takes place at Drum and M’Lynn’s Christmas party. Truvy Jones and Clairee are discussing Clairee’s nephew Marshall. After Truvy comments on how she is surprised how Clairee speaks about her own kin, Clairee said the line as her response, because she was a straight-forward character and enjoyed gossip. She has a heart of gold, but holds no comment back.

This teaser is based on ‘funny’ alternative definitions a word could have if you broke the word up into its syllables and treated the syllables as words in themselves. I will provide a list of words and a list of definitions; it is your job to match them up.
They are meant to be a bit light hearted and may not have perfect pronunciation so work the words in your head a bit. Having the definitions should provide help in this regard. Also note that sometimes the ‘new word’ syllables may not only be using one syllable in the word.
An example would be:
Word: Contemplate “Con template”: A stencil that criminals are made from.
What trees do in the spring
What the owner of a seafood store does

Misty (mis-tee’) : How golfers create divots
Selfish (sel’-fish’) : What the owner of a seafood store does
Relief (ree-leef’) : What trees do in the spring
Eyedropper (i’-drop-ur) : A clumsy ophthalmologist
