Winter’s making its move.  There was FROST on the ground yesterday morning…  Frost!  To help counter darkening and cooling days and nights, let’s remember that the cinema and sofa are 2 great places to spend more time over the winter.

Tim Dirk’s Filmsite.org offers us an inspired list of some of the funniest film quotes from the last 50 years.  Here’s a selection to wet your appetite for more:


“Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room.”

“I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.”

“What? Over? Did you say ‘over’? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
