Cary Grant - gagged

100 Meme - Film # 21

I said I would do my next set of 10 films starring Cary Grant. It has been hard to narrow down to 10 ... but whichever ones make the list, the first has to be   Arsenic & Old Lace. If you have never seen it - why not? It is totally brilliant, and hugely funny. Cary Grant has 2 aunts who he loves .... they just happen to be murderers. Add in a mad brother ... and a psychotic brother ... this is one truly happy family (of course it helps that the film starts with him marrying the vicar's daughter!)

One of the many great scenes (that sums up the main underlying story line) -



The trailer -



PS - my icon comes from the film, btw!

Summer Is Here ....

Well it was on Sunday afternoon at Mum & Dad's!  Flowers are out (so are the weds), bees are buzzing - and we have a hot dog!

I am annoyed - Monday morning is baking morning and decided to rty a new cake recipe ... hasn't worked, at all - I have shoved it back in the oven in the hope it will behave itself ... anyway, the bread rolls were fine.  So not a total loss of a morning.

Sanity - overated!

Best Excuse - Ever

Defence Attorney:
Will you please state your age?

Old Lady:
I am 94 years old.

Defence Attorney:
Will you tell us, in your own words, what happened the night of April 1st?

Old Lady:
There I was, sitting there in my swing on my front porch on a warm spring evening, when a young man comes creeping up on the porch and sat down beside me.

Defence Attorney:
Did you know him?

Old Lady:
No, but he sure was friendly.

Defence Attorney:
What happened after he sat down?

Old Lady:
He started to rub my thigh.

Defence Attorney:
Did you stop him?

Old Lady:
No, I didn't stop him.

Defence Attorney:
Why not?

Little Old Lady:
It felt good. Nobody had done that since my Albert died some 30 years ago.

Defence Attorney:
What happened next?

Old Lady:
He began to rub all over of my body.

Defence Attorney:
Did you stop him then?

Old Lady:
No, I did not stop him.

Defence Attorney:
Why not?

Old Lady:
His rubbing made me feel all alive and excited. I haven't felt that good in years!

Defence Attorney:
What happened next?

Old Lady:
Well, by then, I was feeling so "spicy" that I just laid down and told him 'Take me, young man. Take me now! '

Defence Attorney:
Did he take you?

Old Lady:
Heck, no! He just yelled, "April Fool!" And that's why I shot him, the little bastard.
