I have a knack (some would say an entirely immature knack) for finding comedy in unexpected places.
Most of the time, I find some unexpected ditties in highly serious films.
Take for instance the Academy Award winning movie Monster.
At one point, the main character - prostitute/serial killer Aileen Wuornos as played by Charlize Theron - has an agitated conversation with a potential john/victim.
When the john in question questions the value of Aileen's, um, services, she says:
"That's the kind of money I deserve. I ain't no shampoo girl, alright? I'm the real deal."
That line got me to giggling and giggling.
I got to giggling so much about this line that I couldn't let it go...so I sort-of turned it into a catch phrase (that, naturally, only I use). For months and months after I saw the film, I found myself using that line all the time.
"Hey T$, do you want another drink?"
"Hells yeah, bitch. I ain't no shampoo girl, alright? I'm the real deal."
As always, I encourage you to use this line at your leisure/discretion. Since the holidays are now upon us, feel free to sprinkle it liberally at family gatherings:
"Oh, my darling Grandson, can you please pass the Christmas Pudding?"
"Back off, lady. I ain't no shampoo girl, alright? I'm the real deal."
It clearly works for all occasions.
