I was 12 when
I went to see this movie
with my friend Angela

We laughed the hardest at the "shoe scene"
We thought it was a cinematic masterpiece

We also thought the shoes
were custom made just for the movie

little did we know that people actual wore them
- who knew~ we were twelve!

This movie is a Tim Burton classic

Good morning, Pee Wee.
Good morning, Mr. Breakfast!
Can I have some Mr. T cereal?
I pity the foo' that don't eat Mr. T cereal!

Dottie: Hello?
Pee-wee: Hi, Dottie, it's Pee-wee!
Dottie: Pee-wee? Where are you calling from?
Pee-wee: Texas!
Dottie: Huh?
Pee-wee: Honest! I'll prove it!
Pee-wee: The stars at night are big and bright...
Passersby: [singing and clapping] ... deep in the heart of Texas!

WOW, didn't know Tim Burton did this movie. His stuff tends to be so dark.

Well, if you like this movie so much, why don't you just marry it?!

There's a lotta things about me you don't know anything about, Jerk. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand.
I'm a loner, Jerk. A rebel.

Nice shoes.

The proper non-sequitur response to joat2.0 is either "I know you are, but what am I?!" or "I'm rubber, and you're glue, what bounces off me smacks you in the face."

(Jerk was joking! Big no DUH!) All in fun.

Big Top Pee Wee was also a masterpiece. I literally cried at its greatness.

Jen said...

Bunk Strutts - no way!!!
I was originally gonna go with
"I know you are, but what am I?!

but then I thought..
to obvious
the "I'm a rebel quote"
is no doubt best response

it's far superior

Dick Small said...

Did I mention I cried at Big Top Peewee??? Really, I did.

When I was in high school my choir visited San Antonio, and we went to the Alamo. My friend Joanie and I were going to ask to see the basement, but we chickened out.
