    I miss Hitchock-cuts in some films.
    Those cuts, when camera should show what a person in the frame sees.
    When the person moves the curtain, I want cut and a shot, showing what's on the street...

    Did you notice that on Michael Moore's live shows, when he "randomly" calls some from the audience, that those people virtually always have big fat ars like Mr. Moore. Perhaps it's conspiracy theory, but I don't think it's just a coincidence.

    Are you watching Dr. Oz show? The same phenomenon: obese people all over, and only a few of them are warned they should exercise a little bit, but all of them get budget packages of rice or lentil.

    The prize questions contains such warnings as that tomato can cause allergy, and in the next segment of the show tomato is praised for antioxidants...

    I hate narrators in the movies. Don't bring postmodernism in the motion pictures.

    PREGNANT BUS RIDER (Your Monday morning laugh!)

    ACTUAL AUSTRALIAN COURT DOCKET 12659 ---

    "A lady, about 8 months pregnant, got on a bus and sat down.
    She then noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her.
    She immediately moved to another seat.
    This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.
    The man seemed more amused.
    When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing,
    She complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

    The case came up in court.
    The judge asked the man (about 20 years old)
    What he had to say for himself.

    The man replied,
    'Well your Honour, it was like this:
    When the lady got on the bus,
    I couldn't help but notice her condition.
    She sat down under a sign that said,
    'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I grinned.
    Then she moved and sat under a sign that said,
    'Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling,' and I had to smile.
    Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said,
    'William's Big Stick Did the Trick,' and I could hardly contain myself.

    But, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time
    And sat under a sign that said,
    'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident!'
    ... I just lost it.'

    'CASE DISMISSED!!'
    Now keep that smile on your face and pass it on to someone else!!"

    They did get shorter and shorter, though, as if keeping up the quality was somehow too taxing...

    To the OP, I'm not criticizing, I'm, well, yes I am criticizing.

    Very good, GB.

    Most email spam I get is rather mundane and boring.

    Some years back there was a rugby game on and there was a guy called
    Willie John McBride on one team and a Jean Condom on the other team.

    A guy in the crowd had a funny banner which read,

    "Our Willie is bigger then your Condom."

    There was another banner nearby that read "Would you like to supersize it?"
