Last night I went to “dinner and a movie” with friends. One of my art girls went with me, which made things lots more fun. We met a large group of folks including Jesse and Lindsay at a local Mexican food café before the movie. J and L have been sharing lots of Chuck Norris jokes lately and last night was no exception. They kept the crowd entertained with silly CN lines like these that I found at Dutyinthedesert, “Two-way contact for Chuck Norris is when he hits you with both fists simultaneously” or “Shock and Awe are the names of Chuck Norris’ legs.” I don’t understand what is up with all the Chuck Norris jokes, but it was funny that J & L would be using them as well as Duty in the Desert.
The funniest Chuck Norris line came last week. During Wed. night church service, Jesse leaned over to Lindsay intending to say, “I bet you could kick Chuck Norris’ butt.” Unfortunately, Jesse accidentally switched the N in Norris with the b in butt. I’ll let you try that on your own to understand what she actually said. Lindsay’s eyes got big and she said, “Lordy, I can’t believe you said that in church!” Then they both collapsed into laughter having to hold it in since they were in church only to make their giggles worse.
We saw “Transformers” last night. The previews for upcoming movies were so bad, I wondered if we were in the right theater. I kept thinking “Gee some bank actually loaned money to make these movies. What were they thinking?“ I have to say that I liked “Transformers” but it did have some odd things that could have should have been left out. It is a kid’s movie. The dialogue and characters are all done for kids. I saw children in the movie, especially young boys, who were awed by the show. So what was the point of having two girls in the movie who were scantily clothed. Running around in high-heels with your breasts hanging out could not be easy in an action movie. Then there was the scene where one of the parents in the movie launches into a discussion of masturbation. I bet there were lots of irritated parents at the movie that had to go home and explain that one. Then there was the scene where one of the good robots urinates on a person . Great! I bet there were more discussions at home on that one too. There were some other sexual innuendo type things that were not appropriate, but I guess by today’s standards, it was not “that bad”. But why do movie makers do that to a movie that could be really fun? This movie was fun! It was patriotic! Kids will love it. Big kids will love it. Then they go and mess it up with adult material that is just not okay. Do Hollywood folks just not understand what is really funny and what is not?
All in all, it was a fun evening, and I did like the movie. Thanks for being my date, Ashley
