I found this joke whilst stumbling and thought it was most amusing. I found it here but it may not have originated from there.
A blonde walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. She says she’s going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank; she has the title, and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank’s president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a $250,000 Rolls as collateral against a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drives the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the blonde returns and repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, “Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely; but we are a little puzzled. We checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is – why would you bother to borrow $5,000?” The blonde replies…..”Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?
With my usual cinema buddies being away, poor or uninterested to see a ‘chick flick’, I was thrilled to be getting back on movie schedule tonight with an unsuspecting guy to see Bridesmaids. I was pretty apprehensive when I looked about the cinema to see pretty much the same middle (and older) aged women who had been there to flap about Colin Firth in the Kings Speech. But as soon as the titles ended I realised this is no chick flick, this film has serious balls! It was less Brides Wars more Superbad!!!
I’m not a particular LOL (laugh at loud) kind of person in a cinema or in any other situation, but I was litterally pissing myself. However I was not on my own, litterally every woman and boyfriend dragged along (11 guys in total) was also pissing there panties laughing with me. Techincally I thought it was classic, great acting, characters, lines, casting; but it still followed the lovely chick flick guidelines.
I.E she has a shit man who fucks her over, then meets a lovely cop, played by the beautifully Irish Chris O’Dowd; She can’t decided who she wants, she makes wrong choice. Falls in love with the cop. Blah, blah blah. They live happily ever after.
I literally drove home wanting to be pulled over by a cop in the hope that the same thing would happen to me and that instead of coming home to a house which is all asleep, I would be off on some wild adventure with a beautiful Irish police officer. This obviously didn’t happen. However the night is still young….
But really I write this blog to express my new founded love for Miss Kristen Wiig. I hope she and I have a loving relationship and she continues to produce more amazingly brilliant films, like she already has in Whip It and Adventureland. However that sort of indie young film will never give her enough credit. She is a leading lady who needs to be given more rolls accordingly. What is the female version of a Bro-mance?? A Ho-mance? If so this is what this is.
Still laughing. Bridesmaids, you rocked my world!
