I do have some sarcastic wit about me, but it usually comes out as a defense mechanism when I'm angry or getting pushed by someone, or just someone who is so stupid to see the point I am trying to make and just keeps spouting out stupidity, like when aggravating yourself with the cable or phone company on the phone because of one of their mistakes. Those are the times when my sarcastic wit is at its best and I will take it to the extreme. Other times, especially in high school, I only use it under my breath for just a few to hear and laugh at. I was exposed late in my sophomore year and encouraged to make my "funny" comments out loud for all to hear. It did open up a freeness, and sure helps with quieting people or hecklers. Summer camp was always great training, but like I said I usually like or find something to like in most movies and when giving a quick overview as we don't want to ruin a film for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, sarcastic humor doesn't have much of a place. It does come out every so often if there is just something that I feel is absurd in a movie. My friend still makes fun of me because after watching Edward Scissorhands for the first time my main critique was wanting to know how they made the big block of ice that Edward cuts up at the end. Seriously how and where were they able to freeze a block of ice that big? As for my banter with Dave, that I do basically just say, well I liked it, which literally means I wasn't necessarily overly enthusiastic about it and loved it, but it was ok and watchable and an enjoyment for the time. I think you'll see a more enthusiastic response with Harry Potter and perhaps even with Cars this week as I love Pixar films and they really don't disappoint. We'll see Friday, I guess.

But Scott, THIS ^^^^^^^ is exactly what is missing from the show. Reading this I actually chuckled out loud. If I had heard that in your show I would done the same. Make with the funny already. Even go review this movie as part of a segment, "Taking a Second Look" or whatever. You just scored kid, show me some more! "The Quan Jerry, it's all about the Quan"
