If you’re anything like me, and I know you are, you think Heathers is one of the best movies ever. We could sit and quote it for the rest of the day. “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?” “I love my dead gay son!” “Grow up Heather, bulimia is so ’87.” Ok, I’ll stop. Ok, one more exchange: “I brought you to a Remington party and what’s my thanks? It’s on a hallway carpet. I got paid in puke!” “Lick it up, baby. Lick. It. Up.”
Anyway, one of my favorite things was the Heathers lunchtime poll, where they went around the cafeteria asking everyone a dumb question. Love the scene where Winona asks Christian Slater about the poll – ooooh the tension! However, there’s one huge flaw in his answer. Take a read:
VERONICA Hello Jason Dean. JASON Greetings and salutations. Call me J.D. Are you a Heather? VERONICA No, a Veronica. Sawyer. This may seem like a stupid question.... J.D. There are no stupid questions. VERONICA If you inherit five million dollars the same day aliens tell the earth they're blowing us up in two days, what would you do? J.D. That's the stupidest question I've ever heard. An intrigued J.D. laconically answers the question. J.D. Probably just row on out to the middle of a lake. Bring along my sax, some tequila, and some Bach. VERONICA How very.
I think you see what grapefriend’s problem is with this. You gotta bring some grapes!!! I’d bring Chateau Margaux – a Premier Cru Bordeaux and the best wine I’ve ever had. So let’s kick off this new grapefriend recurring poll post with this:
What would you take to drink on an end-of-world boat trip?
Rock your answer here or on Facebook and stay tuned for more. Nothing too deep – “I told Dennis if he gives me another political topic I’d spew burrito chunks.”
