calendula_witch with a funny from yesterday's dinner for bravado111. She left off the best part, though. After everybody got done laughing at maryrobinette's comment about Atlas Shrugged and The Princess Bride*, the following exchange ensued.

jaylake: When I finally got you to watch The Princess Bride, half the lines in the movie were familiar to you.
calendula_witch: Yes. I used to think you were funny.

Shut me down cold.

* Dagny Taggart/Princess Buttercup slash, anyone?

Kind of like the person who saw "Hamlet" for the first time and said, "It's all quotations."

The first time we got the kids to watch Casablanca both of my kids--but especially Sarcasm Girl--kept turning to glare at us. "I thought you were witty! You were just quoting!"

Commiserations, bro.

I'm just glad you got her to watch it. If there's one movie the movieless should watch, it's that one.

Quoting The Princess Bride is always called for. Makes everyone sound witty. And even if you're called on it, the resulting back-and-forth of more quotes is a joy, too.

If you are going to do Princess Bride slash you should go for the gusto...

Fessik the Giant, Buttercup and the white horses. I mean, if you are going secede all decency and goodness, GO ALL THE WAY!

Nothing is more helpless and depraved than a slash fiction person who has a sense proportion and propriety.
