G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
As the stranger enters a country store, he spots a sign: “Danger! Beware
of Dog!” Inside, he sees a harmless old hound asleep in the middle of the floor.
“Is that the dog we’re supposed to beware of?” he asks the owner.
“That’s him,” comes the reply.

Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Go ahead, make my day.”
Answer: Sudden Impact!
This phrase is used by Harry Callahan, played by Clint Eastwood, as a gunman is holding a waitress hostage during a hold-up at a diner. Harry points his .44 Magnum in the gunman’s face and dares him to shoot, saying “Go ahead, make my day!” He uses the same phrase at the end of the movie, speaking to a man who is going to rape a woman. Clint Eastwood made many western movies. Following these, he made five “Dirty Harry” movies beginning in 1971 and moving into the early 80s. The movies were about a reckless cop in San Francisco, stopping at nothing to bring down criminals. With his .44 Magnum, he made his own kind of justice.

As Forrie Agincourt and Jenn Rahlwitz headed back to the rail depot, Sarah caught Forrie’s eye, nodding toward an unsavory 20-something man headed their way. She guided Forrie into a respectable-looking shop. Forrie was determined not to give her the satisfaction, but his aunt outwaited him.
“I give up. What did we avoid there?”
“I could hardly expect you to head home without,” she cleared her throat, “at least some come-punk-shun.”
Forrie made a noise that drew a stern glance from the spinsterish shopkeeper.
“It’s a good thing you and Mom don’t have any brothers,” he riposted, “because he’d probably be like you, and I’d have to partake of …” he waited.
Sarah groaned, “extreme Unc-shun?”
Forrie grinned; deuce.
The shopkeeper realized they were not likely customers, and eased them back to the world. On the way to the depot, they came up with several more shunnings. How many can you get?
How many of Forrie’s avoidances can you puzzle out?
- Avoidance of places that used to smell bad
- Avoidance of Tom Hank’s “Forrest” movie
- Avoidance of males
- Avoidance of flower bunches
- Avoidance of landing movie roles
- Avoidance of German four-ring cars
- Avoidance of a website’s information pages
