Pointless Poll

What's your favorite line from Fast Times At Ridgemont High?

"Did you hear that? That was my skull!"
"He's gonna shit. He's gonna shit. he's gonna kill us!

Make up your mind dude, is he gonna shit or is he gonna kill us?

First he gonna shit. Then he gonna kill us."


"The attitude dictates that you don't care whether she comes, stays, lays, or prays. I mean whatever happens, your toes are still tappin'. Now when you got that, then you have the attitude."


"This is U.S. History, I see the globe right there. "


"What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too!"


"All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine."


"When a guy has an orgasm how much comes out?"

"A quart or so."


"I want romance."

"In Ridgemont. We can't even get cable TV here."


US And UK Television Law

The other night I was at the Vert Anglais talking with two British dudes and an American dude about the whole David Letterman/John McCain thing.

In case you've been living under a rock, McCain was supposed to be on Letterman Wednesday and called up and told Dave he couldn't be there because he had to fly immediately to Washington to deal with the financial crisis.

Dave then found out that McCain was actually a block away being interviewed by another CBS journalist. He then went ballistic and has been bashing McCain saying stuff like "This is not the way a proven hero behaves" and "This doesn't smell right" and out and out calling McCain a liar.

And, it looks like he has no plans of stopping soon.

The American guy and me agreed that you have to be out of your mind to piss off a popular television talk show host who has a bully pulpit where he can savage you night after night until the election.

The UK guys were shocked by this and said that in the UK a television presenter wouldn't be allowed to go on nightly rants against a political candidate.

"Who elected some cunt on television to tell people how to vote," is how The Iceman put it.

We countered with the free speech argument, but they hit us back with the fact that in the UK you can curse on television and show boobs, which you can't in America.

It's interesting and begs the question: Should Letterman be able to pummel McCain night after night on the air if he wants to?

And, what does America have against nipples! Babies can see all the nipples they want - so why can't adults!
