The last movie for this holiday season is Christmas Story. Mmmmmm! 24 hours non-stop on Christmas day. Channel TNT.
When the movie first came out, everyone jumped on the tag lines.
“You’ll shoot your eye out.”
“Oooooh, fudge!” (Only I didn’t say “fudge.” I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!
“Ho, ho, ho!” (You must say it with the same emphasis as the Bad Santa does. See clip below.)
“He looks like a deranged Easter Bunny.” (Ralphie wearing the Aunt Clara’s bunny suit gift.)
“Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness.” (Ralphie getting his mouth washed out with soap after saying the “fudge” word.
For your enjoyment, here is the Evil Santa scene from You Tube.
And Merry Christmas to all!
