Topic: Christmas Vacation

Every year we watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.  And every year, that movie hits a little bit closer to home.

Am I the only one?  Who else here can really relate to Clark Griswold?

Re: Christmas Vacation

My girlfriend has it running on loop from thanksgiving to new years.

i've probably seen it three times this year so far.


I like all of them for different reasons, but I love Xmas for how snarky and crass Clark is.

William Hickey in that movie is pretty much playing the character he spent a lifetime honing.

My favorite part of that movie has to be Aunt Bethany.

Hey!
If any of you are looking for any last minute gift ideas for me, I have one:

I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here, tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people, and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I wanna look him straight in the eye, and I wanna tell him what a cheap, lying no-good, rotten, four-flushing, lowlife, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, dog-kissing, blood-sucking, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fatass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spiny-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is!

Re: Christmas Vacation

"Four Flushing" always cracks me up.  No one can go on a tirade like C.W. Griswold.
