Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
At the company water cooler, I bragged about my children’s world travels: one son was
teaching in Bolivia, another was working in southern Italy, and my daughter was
completing a year-long research project in India.
One co-worker’s quip, however, stopped me short. “What is it about you,” he asked,
“that makes your kids want to get so far away from you?” 😳😳
Monday’s’ 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.
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“There’s no crying in baseball!”
Monday’s Quizzler is….
In Flanders fields, where once was blood,
From battles for so few yards of mud,
I woke from such slumber deep,
And mocked the blood the havoc wreaked.
But now I show our future hope,
And enable veterans to cope,
By provoking memories of blood,
Before new battlefields can flood.
What am I?
ANSWER: The poppy.
The poppy became a symbol of remembrance for the victims of war. This is due to the war poem ‘In Flanders Fields’, written in 1915 by John McCrae, a Canadian military physician, (the title of which is mentioned in the first line of the teaser).
Poppy seeds can lay dormant, deep in the soil for hundreds of years, but the violent shelling, on the Western Front during the First World War, would have unearthed them. This led to the blood and bodies being watched over by tall red flowers, dancing in the wind.
The artificial poppies sold today, to raise money for war veterans, were the idea of Madame Guerin, a Frenchwoman, mentioned in the title. Other colours of poppy are now sold as well as the original red, normally as a statement of peaceful resolution to conflict. However, it is predominantly Madame Guerin’s poppy seen across much of the World and in military cemeteries.
