Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A man was on holiday in the depths of Louisiana, where he tried to buy some Alligator shoes.
However he was not prepared to pay the high prices, and after having failed to haggle the vendor
down to a reasonable price level, ended up shouting “I don’t give two hoots for your shoes man,
I’ll go and kill my own “croc!,” to which the shopkeeper replied, “by all means, just watch out for
those two “ole boys” who are doing the same!”. So the man went out into the Bayou, and after a
while saw two men with spears, standing still in the water. ‘They must be the ‘ole boys’ he thought.

Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!”

Answer: Dr. Strangelove!
The full name of the 1964 dark comedy is “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb”, but is more commonly referred to by its shorter title. In the film, crazed U.S. Air Force General Jack D. Ripper believes the Russians are poisoning our water, so he orders a squadron of B-52 bombers to carry out a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. What he’s not aware of is that the Russians have invented a doomsday device, which is set to detonate if the Soviets come under nuclear attack. Once the device is activated, it is capable of wiping out all human and animal life on the planet. It is now up to the President of the United States and his advisors to figure out a way to get the bomber pilots to abort the mission, but in the end they are unsuccessful. The line is spoken by the President, one of three characters portrayed by the incomparable Peter Sellers, after a tussle breaks out between a U.S. General and the Russian ambassador.

Friday’s Quizzler is…….
I had a mistress, with beauty and grace,
With a curious hand and fair of face.
She was the first on earth, and made of clay.
I was a gift to Epimethius on their wedding day.
The Gods, they warned her to let me be.
But none of their warnings did she heed.
You see, my mistress was alone one day,
When to me her inquisitive hand did stray.
She gave you sickness, destruction, and greed,
And all of the things from which evil does feed.
But do not be angry, do not mope.
The last she gave you? It was hope.

What am I and who was my mistress?
