A male co-worker was having a full on hissy fit. I am still not sure what set him off, but the tangent was epic. It included whining, a foot stomp and a two octave elevation in his voice. From across the room, another co-worker yells, “When you’re all done with your little pink panty meltdown, let me know”.
CLASSIC! What a great visual. I was in awe of the phrase and gave this particular butcher credit for his alliteration. That was, until I realized that it was just one of the MANY, MANY, MANY movie quotes I would be subjected to.
Movie quotes are the new sports talk. It used to be that girls had little to no interest or were sheltered from sports and therefor, felt out of the circle when guys would ramble on about the draft, scores, college vs. pro, etc. Sorry guys, we caught on. Now, it’s random movie quotes. This particular gem was from Broken Lizard’s Club Dread. I’m not trying to be a hater, but I did not get the appeal of this film. I can appreciate cult-y and slapstick films as much as the next gal but . . . save me, PLEASE.
Gone are the days where it was just The Godfather quotes and the occasional “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH”. Now, the game seems to be all about obscurity.
So, in an attempt to help the other girls catch up in the conversations, here is a quick list of films commonly referenced by the testosterone crowd. Try to enjoy . . .
1) Dumb and Dumber
3) The Sandlot
4) Super Troopers
6) Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalow
7) Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness
NOTE: Accuracy is key! A missed pronoun can take you from funny to pathetic. If ever in doubt, excuse yourself and bust out the smart phone.
