"Ronald Reagan? The actor? [chuckles in disbelief] Then who's VICE-President? Jerry Lewis?"

Check out Jameel's post about the Mondial (World Cup), has a great Simpson's clip.

While reading the comments to his blog, RockofGalilee wrote "I explained to my kids that mondale was the guy who lost to Reagan, and anything that is boring and can't hack it in the US is exciting to the rest of the world."

This reminded me of a funny story I heard a few years back.

A cousin of mine works for a big Japanese Company and is one of the top American's in the company. He was taking Walter Mondale to a conference or dinner from the Corporation and after Mondale was picked up from the airport (I think JFK), he was brought to my cousin's house so that they could go together to the dinner. While there, my cousin introduced him to his children including his young daughter.

The following day, my cousins got a phone call from their daughter's teacher asking for an urgent meeting. They met with the teacher who requested that they have a long discussion with their daughter, because apparently, she is a telling lies, she even told everyone in the class that she met former VP, Walter Mondale.

The teacher's jaw is still open all these years later after hearing that it was true.



Who can guess what movie this posts quote is from?

That's one of my favorite movie quotes! Back in the prehistoric "netnews" days, I used it as my ".sig".

I would have offered my guess but I am a little late to the party.
