The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Dec. 2016 Edition, Vol. 241
It is said that it is better to give than to receive, though this overlooks the fact that in the act of charity you are selfishly placing the recipient of your “goodness” in a compromising position of forced gratitude and, perhaps, financially draining reciprocation. Shame on you! However, with the impending season of brotherhood, charity, good tidings and good will toward Men (including all public bathroom permutations of this most politically offensive of gender identifications) upon us, we must keep in mind that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So, by extension of such a fundamental law of nature, feelings of goodness and charity will inevitably lead to ill-tempered behavior and hostilities, or, in other words, the Salvation Army was responsible for Pearl Harbor. Which brings us to this month’s edition of America’s favorite gender neutral waste of time: the monthly Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you this and always by those fine folks who distribute and sell SKITTLES, the favorite breakfast candy of the Free World since the passage of the 19th Amendment. In this edition we spotlight the marvelous process of gift giving and receiving in all of it’s forms In each of the following twelve images, there is a movie scene depicting the act of giving, receiving, or the giver, recipient or actual subject of a gift (how’s that for complications?). Your mission, as always, is to identify the twelve films from which the images have been taken. The first to do so, successfully, will receive the highly prized and equally feared CSR Culture Shock Award, an honorarium banned from forty nine different New England college campuses, as it’s very presence is enough to send the precious young featherbrains into therapy. Good luck, and to all a good night.
