Life in Bloom: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, May 2016 Edition, Vol. 111
Despite the grand apocalyptic allusions to global warming, orbital rotational shifts or the mysterious shortage of stylishly lapelled union suits, there can be no question that Spring is in the air; along with a range of unsavory toxic particulates wafting over from our global neighbors in Beijing, whose daily motto of: “If you can see it, then you know what you’re breathing”, has, for popular recognition and marketing favorability rankings, just recently eclipsed that most recognized advertising slogan for Bottled Ganges Spring Water: “Refreshment with only the slightest suggestion of urine”. This, of course, leads us directly to this month’s highly anticipated edition of America’s favorite decaffeinated stimulant, the Monthly Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you- as always -by those magical pixies who manufacture SKITTLES, America’s breakfast candy, and the #1 I.O.C. recommended Zika virus preventative nutritional supplement. In this edition, being that we are a sustainably green site (well, at least when we indulge in a wee sip of crème de menthe), we turn to films which feature our friends in the floral realm; those delicate, colorful sprouts which sustain and engage the happy bumble bee who diligently labor to produce enough honey so that we might soak our morning flapjacks (still a felony in certain counties of Alabama). The following twelve images are painfully removed from films in which a bit of Mother Nature’s pollen pushers are present. Your task, as always, is to identify the twelve films; the first to do so will receive the hypoallergenic CSR CULTURE SHOCK AWARD, useful in the warding off of evil spirits and easily doubling as a substitute croquet mallet. Good luck.
