5 THINGS TO DIE FOR

The Scarlet Numbers 4.23.12

Let’s start off by saying there are a lot of things in this world that certainly aren’t worth dying for.

 Twitter is not worth suffering extremely painful 1st degree burns. 

Few things are.
Let’s get started.

THINGS TO DIE FOR: #1.   
KEY LIME PIE?
ABSOLUTELY.
TO DIE.
FOR.
Key Lime Pie is so great…
ELECTED OFFICIALS WRITE BILLS ABOUT IT. 
In 1965, Florida State Representative Bernie Papy, Jr., introduced legislation calling for a $100 fine to be levied
against anyone advertising key lime pie that is not made with key limes.
Unfortunately, the bill did not pass.
WHEN THE BILL DIDN’T PASS
IT WAS AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY.
But the fight wasn’t over….
In 2006 Keylime Pie returned back
to the Florida House of Representatives
who passed legislation {HB 453} and {SB 676}
declaring key lime pie
“Official Pie of the State of Florida”

“The American people have spoken. Keylime pie will prevail.”
And since that day, Keylime Pie has in fact prevailed.
And these members of Congress were all re-elected.
 All of them.
You know why?
Because they have taste.
Just like this firefighter….
“There’s no way in hell I’m going in there…
unless there’s Key Lime Pie!
Interesting Fact: 
 Did you know? 
Most people agree
that keylime pie is worth
the 1st and 2nd degree burns?

“Definately worth it.”

-FREDDY

 QUESTION:
Would YOU run into a burning building 
for key lime pie?

THINGS TO DIE FOR: 

THE HUNGER GAMES?

A lot of us are just too busy with our lives with school, and work, and kids, to take a moment to sit down and ask ourselves,
“Is the new Hunger Games movie
worth taking my own life over?”  
I’m here to answer that question right here and right now….
Maybe.
Surely we would all run into burning houses to read Suzanne Collin’s trilogy of books…that’s a no-brainer.  We love those books more than our own husbands.  However, most therapists and suicide phone-operators have been saying that they haven’t noticed the same “absolutely sickening craze”  from the movie as they did with the books.
Movie experts have said that wave of “suicidal tendencies” isn’t expected until after “Mockingjay” which will be the 3rd installment in the series.
“After Mockingjay, they’ll surely have nothing to live for. It’s sad, but their imminent downward spirals are just two summer-hit-movies away.”  Roger Ebert says, “It’s ultimately  inevitable when you have such weak minded fragile teens watching their favorite book completely destroyed on film.  It’s equilavent to their entire dreams destroying before their eyes.”

” This movie is often compared to the Twilight series, but the film just doesn’t even remotely come close to sucking as much as Twilight.

Thank GOD.”

-Roger Ebert

If you were watching this movie
in a burning movie theatre…
do you think you would
would you stay?  
Take this poll 
and decide for yourself….
Is the new Hunger Games Movie
To Die For?
Okay,
let’s move on…
What about…
THE REAL HUNGER GAMES…
TO DIE FOR?  

 Absolutely. 

“Most things in life aren’t worth dying for….

Hungry, Hungry, Hippos

is NOT one of them.”

                                  -MIilton Bradley

Since we all completely agree that Hungry, Hungry, Hippos is AWESOMEand definately “To Die For.”

Let’s not waste our time will a poll.

Okay fine…well do it!  Jeez…

    • lol….I orgionally made a list of 10, but this blog just got so wacky I decided to cut it short. My next one is a lot more down to earth. I’m planning on posting a new blog at midnight on a daily basis. Thanks again for reading!

      • Jim Cantwell says:

        I post 3 times a week 2 actual posts by me on Sunday and Friday and on Wednesday I reblog blogs of my readers

      • Jim Cantwell says:

        I really like what you have going on here I like your style a lot.
        I don’t know how much of my blog you have read, but I write a lot about inspiration, over coming things all twisted together with writing and my experiences along the way and all the things I’ve overcome to get where I at with my writing, and your post The 10 Voices of Doubt fits in nicely with my over all theme and I was thinking of asking you if I could re-blog it this Wednesday so may I ?

  4. FishyGov says:

    Thanks Scarlet for the giggles and for polling me until I just couldn’t poll any more.

    There’s only two things I would die for:
    1) Freedom
    And obviously
    2) The After Life!

    I know how you like numbered lists;-)
