“BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE”: DEC. 2014 CLASSIC FILM IMAGES PHOTO QUIZ, VOL. 222
Welcome to yet another edition of the international Interweb’s favorite bored game, the CSR monthly CLASSIC FILM IMAGES PHOTO QUIZ, brought to you- as always -by those good folks who have made SKITTLES America’s breakfast candy… SKITTLES, we eat ’em ’cause we’re not Communists. In this edition, we remind the reader that the holidays do not signify the climax of the frigid Winter season, but the beginning (which may account for the insanely optimistic volume of sales in Christmas thong bikinis, which perhaps is a related symptom of an equally unrealistic sense of optimism in the restorative effects of Starbucks’ holiday Viagra Nog Frappuccinos, but I digress…) and therefore caution should be exercised as to the scrupulously dedicated application of safe highway driving combined with the exciting possibility of litigation against fast food franchises who quite improperly dare to serve actual hot coffee to customers in spillable (liquid) form. [Call the law firm of Snipe, Weasel & Confuse at 1-800-SWAG for a free consultation!] The point is that there are two unassailable truths about the Winter season: that it’s cold (there’s your global warming, Harvard dilettantes) and that the great influx of Third World consumers will turn the holiday shopping season into a bargaining nightmare unheard of this side of Jaffa’s Turkish Rug Bazaar. This month’s quiz deals with the former rather than the latter and so onto matters of intemperate climate zones: more specifically, the frozen and the frigid. The following sixteen images are collected from films in which wintery weather plays a significant (or, at least, visually evident) role. Your mission is, as always, to correctly identify the titles of all sixteen films (as always, incorrectly identifying the films will get you nowhere here, though it might get you a prominent seat on the Presidential Council of the Arts). The prize for the first correct participant is the often coveted but seldom properly worshipped CSR CULTURE SHOCK AWARD, the symbol of international excellence in free speech and a continuous thorn in the side of the shirtless Putin who has yet to crack above the 30% solution mark. Good luck.
