Righting the Wrongs



No, The Princess Bride isn't my topic today. Although the movie is in my short list of the top 3 most quotable movies. They are:

3. Ferris Bueller
2. The Big Lebowski
1. The Princess Bride

So unless I am wrong...and I am never wrong...I can think of another similar scenario to the one I've pictured above.

It's Mission Impossible!

Seriously...there were 151 episodes of the TV show and now there have been four movies. I don't think "IMPOSSIBLE" means what they think it means...

And this post just supports an ongoing theme I'll be exploring where I point out the wrongs in the world. Nothing heavy like fixing world peace or anything because that is impossible (and don't even try to argue it isn't...how can you have world peace when your own family can't even get along!) No, these are simplier ones to point out. Like the one I just did.

Oh, and in case you noticed...I don't offer up any solutions either. I figure this is a popular trend these days...point out the problems but don't offer up solutions. Nobody would listen anyway so might as well have fun with it instead.

Next up? Words that shouldn't be spelled the way they do!

I wish it were "impossible" for them to make another movie with Mr. Teeth.

All you have to do is drive to the store and you are provided with many opportunities to rant about wrongs that you can never right.

I really "hate" these remake of the movies they are doing.....why can't they leave well enough alone? Huh? can you "fix it"? No? But you can help me complain about it I know you can

well now, with the whole spelling thing, my husband has pointed that out AND come up with a new system of spelling english phonetically. he's determined. it just hasn't caught on.

Heh heh. So you're saying that the movies SHOULD be titled Mission POSSIBLE.

I like the way you think VE.

heh heh

I find it fairly satisfactory to point out the problems and let somebody else think up the solutions. Lets me vent and keeps them busy.:)

Too many problems and too many solutions and hopefully no more MI movies. Sometimes they should figure out it is time to stop.

God bless.
