actually it comes from a fantastic film "The Blues Brothers":

Jake: How much for the little girl? The women? How much for the women?
Customer: What?
Jake: The women. I want to buy your women. The little girl, your daughters. Sell them to me. Sell me your children!
Customer: Maitre D! Maitre D!

I concur Varun. It is possibly my all time favorite, I have lost count how many times I have seen it, but for a long time everytime I did watch it I found a new joke that I had previously missed.

The follow ups have been very dissapointing but they did have a very hard act to follow.

I was always partial to:

Actually, my answer tells everything. Some are very forward, some can't even handle being spoken to by an angmoh. If you are looking for big generalizations about "local girls", you won't get them from me. Check with the guys who have been here less then three months, they seem to know it all!

when the woman hurried away, after putting herself between her daughter and the guy at the door, her face ashen, the room remained completely silent

the door closed, and after a long pause where the five or six of us just looked at each other in disbelief, then we all simultaneously burst into laughter, to the point of tears

might have been the funniest moment of the year

ya simply had ta be there....and allow yourself a sense of college humor

speaking of which, The Blues Brothers was mentioned as a classic, but so was Animal House, also starring Belushi in one of his best roles


"Otis my man!"

".....mind if we dance with your dates?...."

one must not forget Fast Times At Ridgemont High, best role I ever saw Sean Penn in, he's a better burnout than Keanu Reeves ever was

but still, the one I saw the most times was The Holy Grail

The Blues Brothers, I must watch again. Don't be shocked Ma'am Viceroy, but I haven't seen Spinal Tap. :o

This girl wore her bed sheet as a toga and danced to Otis Day and the Knights live at the Student Union.

It would be a toss up for me between Holy Grail and Spinal Tap.

If you don't want to know, then don't ask :twisted:

Sorry not every one will share your sense of humour. I thought you would have learnt your lesson after trying to explain you didn't mean to sound as heartless as your post in the other thread. Unfortunately I was wrong.

Cut him some slack, locallass. The line is from a movie, and if you read carefully, EADG did say that the woman had the poor sense to bring her grade school daughter...

What happened to you is in your past, time to move on, don't you think? Dwell too much on your past and you will only get bitter.

Sapphire, please excuse me then for having moved beyond Sophomore humour. Yes the world revolves around college students. People deserve every bit to be made fun of for *gasp* daring to intrude! On a Sunday no less, when they're all hung over.

After all, anyone else who disagrees must either have no sense of humour or a sick and twisted past, don't you think?

EADG,

I am with locallass here, this is way out of line, you're rude here. Hers is just an opinion, but you get personal and nasty with this remark.

Sapphire, you should not contribute either.

well, only here

maybe it's only you who feels that way, and if so, my sincere apologies, as no offense was directed at you, and most people who know me know I'm nothing like how I appear to be in your mind, to find some way to denigrate someone as harmless and self-depreciating as me - oh well, chalk it up to the nuances of the written word...

last thing I'd want to do is be this week's target for locallass' angst, but the "lesson learning" comment so cleary demonstrates the crux of the issue

what a wierd way to see things

peace, sister
