There are several things I would like to do for no particular reason. I've seen them done on a television show or in a movie, and they are completely absurd, but they look like so much fun. Of course, this goes without saying that there would be no consequences if I performed any of these actions.
Here it goes:
Here it goes:
1. Grab food off someone's plate and eat it. I blame Kingpin for this. Woody Harrelson's character grabs pizza off someone's plate before a big bowling match (game? meet?), and the guy didn't seem to care. And, right, how awesome would it be to just grab a french fry or a nacho off someone's plate and just keep on walking. (Also, pretty unsanitary, but that's neither here nor there.) Of course if I attempted this, it would probably go a little more like the end of the movie.
2. Pull off someone's toupee. I don't know anyone with a toupee. But man I would love to just pull a bad toupee off someone's bald head. See Seinfeld, Liar Liar and Tommy Boy examples here, (:35 in) here (2:16 in) and here (:34 in). It's just always funny. But, it's mean, so I could never.
3. Ride on top of a train. Okay this scares the shit out of me, but it could be so, so cool. I mean how bad ass is that. Look at Angelina Jolie in Wanted. And, well, look at anyone in any action movie ever. If I had the reflexes and flexibility of Ms. Jolie, I'd be all over this.
4. Smack the hood of a car and yell, "Hey, I'm walking here!" I would like to do this for a couple reasons. A) Drivers in Manhattan are jerks; and B) It's a great way to let out some pent-up anger.
Case in point: Dustin Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy.
|Reading this back, I realize how absurd all this actually sounds. But, hey, don't pretend you're not thinking some of the same things.|
