Today, we have a very special treat for all you dubbatrubba blog fans (all 2 of you): a special guest blogger. It’s my old pal Mookie.
Not baseball’s Mookie Wilson. Not basketball’s Mookie Blaylock. Just Mookie. Here’s his post:
Like most people, when I randomly think about a movie I then look it up on IMDb.com (there’s an app for that). I did that the other day with Say Anything. It’s totally a “number two” of a movie… but it does feature some great quotes. After reading several of the quotes, I realized how well they’ve held up over the years and how prophetic our pal Lloyd Dobler was.
Some of my favorite Nostra-Dobler moments:
Lloyd Dobler on Sports:
“Kickboxing. Sport of the future.”
Thanks Lloyd for the heads up on MMA’s meteoric rise! Ronda Rousey should sign her entire paycheck over to you.
Lloyd also predicted the Millennials attitude toward work:
I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.
My gosh, it’s like reading a page from Mark Zuckerberg’s high school diary!
Lloyd’s prophetic words on politics…..
You must chill. You must chill.
Lloyd on Fox News…..
Why can’t you be in a good mood? How hard is it to decide to be in a good mood and be in a good mood once in a while?
Bill O’ Reilly approves of this message.
Lloyd on how to handle the press, social media, etc.:
I admit nothing.
Lloyd on the assessment of every American foreign policy decision since “Say Anything” was released:
That was a mistake.
Other great quotes:
Constance on the future of American Fast Food:
Why do you eat that stuff? There’s no food in your food.
Morgan Spurlock, eat your french-fried heart out.
Corey on Ivy League frats…..
Brains stick with brains. The bomb could go off and their mutant genes would form the same cliques.
Thanks so much for your insights, Guest Blogger Mookie. Now I know how Wally Pipp felt. I really should just change this from dubbatrubba.com to mookie.com. Sadly though, tomorrow you’ll be stuck with more of my drivel.
