"I Wouldn't Wish That On A Broke-Dick Dog" And Other Phrases I Picked Up From the Movie Predator

While "A team of commandos, on a mission in a Central American jungle, find themselves hunted by an extra-terrestrial warrior" may sound awesome and may even look awesome in print considering all of the extraneous commas, Predator is not a good film. It's not even a film that's so bad it's good. It's just a bad, bad film, despite the fact that someone actually uses the phrase "god damned sexual Tyrannosaurus" AND there's a totally sweet scene where Carl Weathers is shooting an alien, gets his own arm shot off, and the dismembered arm continues firing the gun even as it is blown clean from Weathers' body. That's the appendage equivalent of the band playing on as the Titanic sinks.

The good part about the Predator experience was that beforehand I ate some delicious Pho (which apparently is pronounced fa...since when? Also, why is there no restaurant in Richmond called So Pho-King Good? Guys, don't make me do all the hard work here) with a friend who says awkward things to girls and who painted this:

I love that this tiny teapot has been dude-ed up by the manly football on the side and the strategic plays painted on the back:

I'm pretty sure that owning the most testosteroney teapot on the planet is the first step to becoming a god damn sexual Tyrannosaurus.

Somebody called me a god damn sexual Tyrannosaurus once. Or atleast that's what I thought she said. Turns out she actually said "odd jam ineffectual thesaurus".

Which, while momentarily confusing was not, I suppose, entirely untrue.

It was very odd jam.

Pho is fa? Damn. That makes "Mo' Pho'" here in Ft. Lee not so funny anymore.

We'll have to hit Pho 79 on Staples Mill and get you a t-shirt... which DOES read "It's pho-king good!"... Shaun.
