Yeah, that's what I said!


Side note: I just heard that Michael Phelps eats about 8-10000 calories a day. A DAY! Holy Crap.

So do the French prepare "creaux" with a bechamel, or an espagnole sauce? I hope they like as they will be eating it for some time! Muahahahahaha!

Had I not just finished my coffee I'd be scratching my head right now Neuf.

If you have been listening to the recent news it sounds like this scene might be almost as relevant as it was in the eighties:

what are those crazy Russians up to this time?

The Irascible Neufonzola said...

Time to rent "Red Dawn", which is a cheese-ridden combination of The Breakfast Club and Apocalypse Now!

WOLVERINES!

"New strategy..let the russian hit me until his fist bounces off my head and knocks himself out..."

Did you notice that at about 2:07 Rocky actually ducked a punch? I think that's the only one...

So let me get this right Russia attacks a small midwest town where a a "coming of age" Patrick Swayze fights them off. Brilliant.

USA! USA!

sorry a was actually me Pilgrim

Wow...I remember watching Red Dawn when I was a kid. But, I did not, however, remember much about the plot. I literally laughed out loud when watching the preview pilgrim posted. That is quite ludicrous.

I had never seen it, but I netflixed it recently. Holy crap it was funny, without intending to. Not only Patrick Swayze, but Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, and Jennifer Gray!

The first scene they are all at school, and Russian/Cuban paratroopers drop out of the sky, and immediately start raking the school with machine gun fire. Seriously? These crack, elite soldiers are not smart enough to save their ammo to fight an actual army?

Also, how did teenagers figure out how to operate RPGs and other weaponry without training? Ostensibly the manuals and switches on the weapons were in cyrillic, not translated into English for the convenience of their enemies.
