Blazing Saddles

This is one of Mel Brooks' funniest films. It's full of delightful jokes, puns and double-entendres. But one of the funniest scenes in the film was virtually silent...silent but deadly!

Great film, one of my Top 10 favorites. Where I from we call the silent-but-deadly "Church house creepers".

Absolutely one of my all time favorites movies & the rest of that seen is great..."I know, lets let Mongo kill him. That is a E nuke idea."

Quirky: I prefer to hear them coming!

Me-Me: or CHCs - that hilarious; gotta remember it!

Trukindog: One of the funniest lines ever is delivered by the black sheriff: "scuse me while I whip this out".

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
