Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
I spotted several pairs of men’s Levi’s jeans at a garage sale. They were sizes 30, 31, and 32,
but I was looking for size 33. So I asked the owner if he had a pair. He shook his head.
“I’m still wearing the 33s,” he said. “Come back next year.” 😳

Fridays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“A buffer. Someone in between you and your possible superiors who passed on to you the actual order to kill someone.”
“Oh yeah, a buffer. The family had a lot of buffers!”

Answer: The Godfather: Part II!
In this scene Corleone family buttonman, Willie Cicci (Joe Spinell), is testifying before a U.S. Senate committee investigating organized crime in America. Cicci admits he has killed people that the family wanted eliminated, but claims his orders never came directly from Don Michael Corleone (Al Pacino). The questioning Senator (G.D. Spradlin) wants to know if a buffer was always involved. When Cicci expresses puzzlement at this term, the senator explains it with first line and Cicci responds with the second. In the 1975 Academy Awards “The Godfather: Part II” won six Oscars, including Best Picture, and was nominated for five others. This was the first sequel to win Best Picture. This movie continues where the “The Godfather” left off, following the lives in a fictional American crime family. However, many of the characters in this fictional story are based on people and incidents in real life.
