    I just threw in an obscure reference on a post for another thread. (something about wanting a yellow jumpsuit like those in the movie "Bottle Rocket") Maybe we should have a thread about obscure references.

    For instance, someone could simply post the word "silica" on any post and anyone who frequents the After Hours Lounge would know what he/she is talking about. Same thing with "(blank) is not as good as the (blanks) at the Mall of America."[​IMG]

    So I say let's make a game of it. I'll give an obscure reference and you try to guess it. Try to give as much background info on the reference to show that you have a firm understanding of the reference's meaning and its origins.

    The first one's a relative softball pitch:



    Feel free to submit your own.

    I read that thread and missed that reference the first time. This is taken from Southpark. Thank God for Pip. He saved the day.[​IMG]


    OK here's an one that I used about one month ago when I went to a CD store with my gf. She didn't get it.

    Me--"Hey, babe. Let's go in here and see if they have Mojo Nixon. If they don't have Mojo Nixon then this store could use some fixin'."

    She--"Who's Mojo Nixon."

    Me--"Nevermind."[​IMG]

    Hunter, I'll bet your girlfriend's father took one look at you and he began to squeal.

    "He don't even have his license, Lisa!" -Weird Science. Awesome flick.

    gotta love the movie quote web sites [​IMG]

    My fav movies to quote in daily conversation are :
    1. Boogie Nights
    2. Dazed and Confused
    3. Star Wars (any of them)
    ie, "I wanna dance!", "marjuana on one, reefer on two", "im a f**king idiot, im a f**king idiot" (I say that alot), "I get older, they stay the saaame age" [​IMG], "So, are we gonna f**k?", "not bad for a little fuzzball"

    It was said in Blazing Saddles, and it's the name of a late jazz player.

    "My teeth are itching! My teeth are itching!"

    or the infamous...

    "Don't color the dogs until the holes are in"

    "What?"

    "Don't color the dogs until the holes are in"

    "What??"

    "Sorry. I mean 'Don't COUNT the dogs until the holes are in"

    and lastly...

    "When I say 'Towers' I of course mean 'Tunnels going into the ground'."
