Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A man is sitting in a fancy restaurant when his food finally arrives at his table. As the plate is being served the man notices the waiter has his thumb resting on the edge of his steak.
“Umm, excuse me,” the man says, “but I couldn’t help but notice you had your thumb on my steak.”
“Yes, I know, sir,” the waiter responds, “but I didn’t want to drop it again.” 😳
Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Got that boys? Now he’s got his wife doing his fightin’ for him.”
“Yeah. Ain’t she something?”
Answer: Cinderella Man!
In the events leading up to this scene boxing promoter Jimmy Johnston (Bruce McGill) gives a restaurant meal to boxer Jim Braddock (Russell Crowe), his wife Mae (Renée Zellweger), and manager Joe Gould (Paul Giamatti). He knows current heavyweight boxing champion Max Baer (Craig Bierko) and some press photographers will be present and hopes for some prefight publicity for an upcoming match between them. When Baer says to Mae, “You are far too pretty to be a widow.” and then adds “On second thought, maybe I can comfort you after he’s gone.” Mae throws her drink in Max’s face. Baer then says line one to the photographers and Braddock replies with line two. This movie tells the true story of a Depression-era boxer who is supposedly washed up but who goes on to become the world heavyweight champion. In the 2006 Academy Awards “Cinderella Man” was nominated for three Oscars but didn’t win any. Paul Giamatti was nominated for Best Supporting Actor but lost to George Clooney in “Syriana.” Russell Crowe suffered numerous injuries in filming the boxing sequences in this movie. During training he dislocated his shoulder. Professional boxers played Braddock’s opponents during these scenes. Even though they were instructed to avoid hitting his face, sometimes they couldn’t pull back in time and ended up injuring Crowe. He wound up suffering from several concussions and cracked teeth.
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Excuse me, what did you say?”
“Magua said he understands the English very well.”
Monday’s Quizzler is….
The following riddle was originally printed in 1867 in “London Society”.
On six feet, I am a noxious drink,
Of whose effects you shudder to think.
Change only my second foot, and then
You convert me into a horrible den
Where the culprit, who gave the noxious drink,
Awaits the fate of which you shudder to think.
“On six feet” means a six letter word. The first two lines refer to poison. The next two lines refer to prison. The last two refers to where “the culprit” who gave you the poison would go — prison.
