Friday Shootout

Hey look, it's the Friday My Town Shootout! Long time, no post!
But I happened to see today's theme, and decided to come back, at least for a while. And it is...drumroll... Matching.
Er, what?
Yes, yes, you match up a photo to your favorite quotation.
Ah. I'm not really a quotation person. Some of you out there keep whole rolodexes full of nifty quotations in your heads, ready to pop one out for any occassion, at any time, proper attributions and all. Not me. I'm sure at some point some clever person said just exactly the right thing, and it would score me a lot of points both in the appropriate repartée department and the culture and knowing my history departments to come up with one and lay it out here.
Accompanied, naturally, with an illustrative photograph. The Shootout is about Shooting pictures.

In lieu of all that I give you my favorite quotation below. It's my favorite not because it's all that great, but because I hardly ever get to say it. Still looking for that perfect moment. And this sort of is one, so here you are.

Back off, Bub! I'm a scientist
There you have it folks. The one line worth keeping from that lame mid-80's SF flick Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension.

Did the mad scientist drink some portion of his invention and turn pink?

Well, that's certainly one quotation I hadn't heard before. Top marks for originality of choice and photo!

You made me smile. :)

Love this one!! I'll actually remember it! "Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension?" Pretty obscure.

They may have rolladexes but you've got the quote to make me laugh!

GingerV said...

it is great to see you back, and your quote is great.... I think sometime back I read it here before.
I also don't have favorite quotes - unless it is 'OH MY GOD - Oh my god - when there is a near miss with another Brasilian driver...
I picked a photo - cause I was going to post about it anyway - then did a google search - quotes about old trees. and mine popped out....
lucky me.

Don't keep a rolladex just put in a key word on Google and then take my pick. This one made me laugh for sure.

Hi, you commented in my blog that it is my turn to do a theme for Poetry Jam. I would be glad to! However, I did not get a link in email from you. Please send it, and I will be happy to post! List the subject as Poetry Jam so I surely see it.
