Tough Guy Tuesdays: Who Said It?

If you dig vampires just for the sparkles then you might not have picked up that yesterday’s quote was from Dracula by Bram Stoker. I can’t even lie though, I got through maybe half of this book before I quit that shiznit. Talk about boring, man! Give me some Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder (you can hold the Keanu) over that snooze button any day of the millenium.

So this week’s Tough Guy Tuesday is a little different. This “hero” is one of those guys nobody likes, and if they do it’s because the dude is super funny at being a total dick. But he’s still the protagonist of the story so I’m just rolling with it. Good luck!

“Appleby was as good at shooting crap as he was at playing Ping-Pong, and he was as good at playing Ping-Pong as he was at everything else. Everything Appleby did, he did well. Appleby was a fair-haired boy from Iowa who believed in God, Motherhood, and the American Way of Life, without ever thinking about any of them, and everybody who knew him liked him.

‘I hate that son of a bitch,’ Yossarian growled.”

    • Oh man, that was great! I love corny jokes so much. I once had this chemistry teacher who told us there were three kinds of matter: regular matter, dark matter, and *doesn’t* matter.

      I’m pretty sure I was the only one in the class who laughed at that.

  1. Dracula was slow, but I thought it was really creepy. I hated the Gary Oldman version for soooo many reasons, starting with the Kabuki make-up and the fact that Keanu Reeves should never be allowed to do anything but action flicks.
