WELCOME to THURSDAY JANUARY 20, 2021
Here’s The Story…..
Roger Letzer was visiting the cemetery near Portchester Castle in England and he couldn’t help noticing a man kneeling in front of a gravestone, clasping his hands and sobbing. Roger went a bit closer and could hear what the man was saying. ‘Why did you have to die?’ he was repeating,
‘Why did you have to die?’ Feeling he ought to do something to alleviate the man’s obvious distress Roger laid his hand on his shoulder saying gently, ‘Was it someone you loved very much?’ The man looked up at him and said, ‘No, I never met him, he was my wife’s first husband.’😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“I read about a company that’s working on technology that would let your pet video
chat with you. It’s fun to get a video chat from your dog, but depressing to
watch your cat decline your call.” -Jimmy Fallon
“Saudi Arabia has lifted a 35-year ban on movie theaters, and the first movie to screen
publicly was “The Emoji Movie.” So, the ban is back on.” -Conan O’Brien
“A company has come out with a line of medical marijuana dog treats. Finally a
medicine that will help my dog lie on the couch all day.” -Seth Meyers
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A customer moves away from a bank window, counts his change, and then
goes back and says to the cashier, “Hey, you gave me the wrong change!”
“Sir, you stepped away from the counter,” said the cashier. “We don’t make
corrections after you leave. There’s nothing I can do about it now.
That’s the policy of this bank.” “Well, ok,” answered the customer. “Just
thought you’d like to know that you gave me an extra twenty. Bye.” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”
“And then some.”
In this scene 1920’s vaudeville star Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is being sworn in by a court bailiff in the murder trial of Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger), a wannabe vaudeville star who has killed her lover after finding out he has lied to her and was never going to make her famous. The court bailiff asks line one and Velma replies with line two. Hart is represented by hotshot defense lawyer Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), who compares the Chicago brand of justice in the 1920s to entertainment (one of the movie’s taglines is “With the right song and dance, you can get away with murder”). In another telling scene Flynn says, “Would you please tell the audience… er … the jury what happened?” In the 2003 Academy Awards “Chicago” won six Oscars, including Best Picture and Catherine Zeta-Jones for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Renée Zellweger, Queen Latifah, John C. Reilly and director Rob Marshall were also nominated for awards but didn’t win. Catherine Zeta-Jones was originally asked to play Roxie Hart, but she preferred to play Velma Kelly so she could sing the song “All That Jazz.” “Chicago” was the fourth movie where Richard Gere wound up with a role John Travolta had turned down. The other three were “An Officer and a Gentleman” (1982), “American Gigolo” (1980), and “Days of Heaven” (1978). The movie “Chicago” was based on a popular stage play of the same name, which was loosely based on two actual 1924 murder trials in Chicago.
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Is that what I’m supposed to tell your mother when she gets another folded American flag?”
“You can tell her that when you found me, I was with the only brothers I had left. And that there was no way I was deserting them. I think she’d understand that.”
