TEARS ON MY PILLOW: Classic Film Images Quiz, February 2016 Edition, Vol. 66
Tears of sadness, tears of gladness, tears of sorrow and tears of joy. One thing is for certain: the movies are awash in a flood of salty drippings so voluminous it makes the staff of CSR gnash their collective teeth in anguish at the failure to secure lump stock options in the tissue industry. (That our alternative diversified investments in Hungarian honeymoon accessories as advised by the CSR brokerage team of Behemoth, Swindle & Hyde underperformed is a matter of historical record , not to mention unfortunately necessitating a few sessions of after hours retaliation involving an ether pillow and croquet mallet.) If a timely burst of tears in the movies teaches us anything it’s that deeply felt emotions are easily faked by overpaid celebrity automatons (although the jury is still out on Channing Tatum whose expressive menu seems uncannily imitative of a block of sandstone) and that the Pavlovian response reflex is very much alive as evidenced by the sniffling and sobbing emanating from the dark corners of the local movie house. (And that’s just in response to the pre-feature “no texting” announcement.)
Which brings us to this month’s edition of America’s favorite parlor game often compared to experiencing a weekend of waterboarding in Gitmo: the Classic Film Images Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those dedicated folks who manufacture and distribute SKITTLES, the favored breakfast candy of skirt chasing Syrian migrants everywhere. In this edition, we feature twelve examples of Hollywood-style waterworks from twelve films, each which you are expected to identify with all possible haste. (Correctly, if you please. This isn’t an exercise for the feint of heart nor the lactose intolerant. huh?) The first three readers to correctly identify all twelve film from which the images spring will receive the provocative CSR CULTURE SHOCK AWARD, the preferred cultural trophy of libertines worldwide. Good luck.
