Thursday Thirteen - Movie Facts

1. When a girl is in a house all by herself in a horror movie, it is always raining or thunder and lightning outside.
2. In all junior highs, the popular girls have big boobs, while the geeky girls are flat-chested.
3. In movies when a character is brushing his/her teeth, they never get toothpaste on their mouth or rinse out their toothbrush when through cleaning their teeth.
4. Anybody eating chinese food always eats it out of the box with chopsticks.
5. If you try to get your ex partner back by going out with someone else in order to make your ex jealous, you will succeed but by the time you have achieved what you set out to do you will have fallen for the other person.
6 . A woman´s shoes always make high heel clacking sounds, regardless which shoe type she wears. She can even wear sneakers...
7. Whenever at a bar or dance with loud music cranked up on high, the couple the audience sees talking have perfectly audible voices and can talk as though there is no music.
8 . The villain will always have thousands of henchmen working for him or a small army that follows him.
9. There is always a full moon when people go to bed. When the lights are turned off, a delayed light turns on, causing a blue cast in the room in which they could read by.
10. If you are going to be killed it has to be at a time when you are alone and it has to be at night and raining.
11. The antidote to any horrible, out-of-control virus can always be attained somewhere in the neighborhood of the other side of the world often from an exotic plant. Somehow these plants can always be reproduced to cure the epidemic.
12. If the movie is set in America any Australians will talk with a British accent.
13. Women of action can run, do karate, kickbox, climb ladders and perform highly acrobatic movements while wearing six inch heals and either a miniskirt or a tight leather cat suit.

Two More For Good Measure!

14. If a person has an occupation that involves spending most of their working hours at weddings, their love life will be a disaster or non-existent.
15. Every city - despite of its size - has at least one old lady who drives her belongings in some old baby buggy or shopping cart around. If the lady is a guy he always uses a shopping cart and never a baby buggy.

Too funny!!! I was one trying the brushing-without-getting-toothbrush-on-my-mouth-trick, of course to no avail :D

Sanni said...

Happy TT.

Laura said...

Those are funny....amazing the things that happen in the movies! I always comment to my husband about how "it's written in the script"...the hero rarely dies, somehow evading all manner of the villan's assassin, etc.... Happy T-13!

OneLuvGurl said...

I totally agree with you! I just want to see a horror movie where someone just runs instead of looking for the trouble!

My TT is 13 love songs that you can listen to in the post. Happy TT & Valentine's!

Not only do bad guys have henchmen but sometimes these henchmen even wear uniforms. Who makes them? Do the bad guys put them out to tender?

Linda said...

I loved these!!! I guess I'd play the geek in a movie..hehe!

I remember Edith from All in the Family saying "I can see (any celebrity here) brush her teeth, but I can't imagine her spitting it out."

I think she said Elizabeth Taylor, but I could be wrong.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

It's the truth. All of it. It's those writers I tell ya. Very well done Gracie. Have a great TT and Valentine's Day. :)

Linda said...
