: Sorry ladies. I'll back Mel everytime. Willie Wallace, bless 'im, became more legend than truth--with Mel in face paint rising up to do battle like a Blackfoot warrior, be still my heart! Mel, Mel...oops, sorry... I lost touch with reality there for a moment. Forgot the bum had a wife and five (or is it seven?) kids. 'Scuse me, I'm mixing metaphors (identities). If the choice is the Patriot over Hawkeye I'll have to give it to the Patriot. Gotta remember, it wasn't actually Hawkeye's fight, was it? If his eye for the lady hadn't been caught, he probably woulda kept trackin after clobbering the Huron. The Patriot, on the other hand, has God, country and family pushing the adrenalin through his system and not his hormones! Go Mel!
: : Dear Joe,
: : As Danalee stated, thanks for the post. I only saw a poster promoting the movie in late December so I look forward to seeing it in the theater. Too bad it won't be released prior to the Gathering. It would be one more thing for us to discuss, compare, criticize and re-enact.
: : Hey gang, think about it, we could discuss Mel Gibson vs. Daniel Day-Lewis ala SNL in their Chicago Bears skit. Imagine us all sitting around a table, with tall glasses of frosty beer (root, hops, your choice). Rich could start the discussion....
: : Rich: "Now if Hawkeye took on da British army versus Mel as da Patriot, who would win?"
: : Marcia: "Would Hawkeye face da entire British army or just a platoon?"
: : Rich" "Let's say da the whole army."
: : Marcia: "Would he be incapacitated in any way?"
: : Rich: "Maybe a hurt arm or sumtim like dat"
: : Marcia: "No question den....Da Mohican!"
: : Shot to everyone drinking. Well, it gives us something to think about this June....
: : Christie
Are youse on drugs or what??? Melvin is what...three feet
tall? Three and a half with lifts? Heck, the only reason
Billygnome is shorter than Mel is because he refuses to
wear high heels...yet. My beloved would make Melmeat out
of him with a flick of his elegant wrist!!! I'm sorry,
Da Hawk wins in all of the Mr. Early American categories:
cutest outfit, best personality, and above all, most fab
hair! No Nancy-Boy hair extensions for him! I shudder to
think of the disillusionment that American Womanhood
would have suffered if they had run out of spare hair
and poufy spray on the Braveheart set! *snort! snort!*
Set 'em up, barkeep!!!
