I found this distractify article today. It has 25 examples of people on twitter explaining movie plots in one sentence. They’re super funny and sometimes quite astute, like the one that describes the movie “Inception” as a series of naps.
Check out more tweets with the #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly hashtag here. Jurassic Park? “A startup company learns the importance of a proper IT budget.” The Matrix? “A group of friends decides to spend less time online.”
Inside jokes are fun, but I can’t resist sharing these two with you. They came up yesterday on the retreat where I spent the whole day with good friends. We had a potluck lunch, sewed all afternoon, then went to an Irish Pub where I tried something new: a lamb shank. Soooo yummy. Anyway, here are the funnies.
I was poking at two of my friends who had stayed overnight at the hotel for reading my last blog post… because they’re on vacation. Then I realized how ridiculous it was for me to have anything negative to say about someone reading my blog. So, collectively, we decided that a great name for a blog would be, “Don’t Read this Blog” with the by-line of “I have nothing to say.” I’d check that one out at least once.
The other one happened when we were walking around downtown and came across a shop called, “Truffle Hound Chocolates.” Aptly named. I offered an alternate name which would not work from a marketing standpoint but meant the same thing. “Oink Schnauzer Delicacies.” Don’t think I’d shop there.
Alright, time to go back to binding a gift quilt and my Hulu shows. Grimm’s first in line.
