It's that time of the week when I search youtube to find the perfect clip for this week's theme for Movie Clip Wednesday. It's also the same time of the week where I can never find the clip I want. I wanted to use a scene from Porky's. It's when Meat learns he didn't get the football scholarship, get's drunk and passes out in his chili. It's nothing we all haven't done at least once. What's that you say? You've never passed out in your chili? Or a plate of food at all. I haven't either. It doesn't look like much fun. One time back home my brother was at the all night cafe waiting for a table when a fight broke out. One of the patrons heard it was his buddy and ran outside to see what was happening. Just as he turned to leave, the waitress served his breakfast. Brother Bill sat down, ate it and then called out "Thanks for breakfast Barry". Barry didn't figure it out for a little bit, when he got the bill I suppose. He laughed hard. Barry and I were talking about it at Christmas. Good times.
Then there are a couple of great drunk scenes from "Blind Date" with Bruce Willis and Kim Bassinger. One was on youtube but the quality was so crummy I didn't use it. Of course there's Arthur but you're just asking for a blog jinx.
So in the end I went with a scene from Porky's. There's no drinking but its funny. Its the scene where the old bag gym teacher wants to have a tallywhacker lineup. I'd forgotten how funny it is. I just love how all of the men are giggling and the old principal has to hold it together. He almost makes it.
Head over to Boxer's for more real good stuff.
