It’s been awhile since I’ve answered one of these, but hey, why not… here goes the Friday Happy Hour stolen from Mental Floss:
1. In your opinion, at this point in your life, what’s the most rewatchable movie? Even though you’ve seen the film dozens of times, you’re excited to see it come on TV, you might own it and pop it in from time to time, and you don’t see yourself getting sick of it in the near future.
Without question, for me this is Star Wars. Especially A New Hope. Though I never watch any movie when I see it on TV. I’d always rather pop in the DVD and watch it start to finish. Watching parts of movies ruins them for me.
2. Reader Anthony left this comment under our Nerf history article:“When my wife and I got married, the bridesmaids got little jewelry boxes as the their thank you gifts. The groomsmen? Nerf guns.”What’s the greatest bridesmaid/groomsman gift you’ve received (or given)?
Best for me came from my sister’s wedding. A mix CD of carefully chosen songs along with a huge 32oz beer mug with my last name engraved on it along with an imported bottle (can’t remember which kind). Needed a couple more bottles to fill the thing though…
3. If you don’t have an answer for #2 but still like talking about weddings, here’s a Happy Hour question from 2009:I’ve been to my share of weddings over the years, and they all went as planned. No bride or groom ever failed to show or said the wrong name or fled the altar. No former lovers ever interrupted the ceremony, and everyone else chose to forever hold their peace. Of course, weddings in books, movies, and TV shows get screwed up all the time. Have you ever been to a wedding where, for whatever reason, nobody got married?
No, but this could be a really cool story if it did happen… as long as it wasn’t anyone close to me. One of those “only there because I feel obligated” sorts of weddings. Especially if I got them some kind of cool gift that I could now keep.
4. You’ve been tapped to open a new museum in whatever city you’re currently living. You should pick something you’re interested in, but also something that will appeal to your fellow citizens. With those two caveats in mind, what will be the name of your new museum?
This one seems simple to me (and why hasn’t someone already done it?!?!) The Kansas City Museum of Barbecue. Items and memorabilia from all the great KC BBQ places… Bryant’s, Gate’s, Smokestack, and more. An area that compares and contrasts techniques is a must. And by far, the main attraction is the tasting room.
