Mike in DC: Here is my exhibit of Cannabaceae… 17:08

Louise: Banned because I pissed off the guy who runs the show because I was able to get someone to sponsor our miniature scenes when he couldn’t make a deal with the same company. Sensitive bully. But that was 5 years ago. They have been shadow banning me (not letting me apply) since then.17:08

Godwinshelley2: They talk about Chinese automatons – and discuss the organs that worked and what they did for the machine – but they don’t understand Chinese medicine so it didn’t make sense to them17:22

angel & fox: Is Rachel here? Howdy if so!!!17:22

Mike in DC: GS–who are “they” who talk about this?17:22

Mike in DC: The plot is dumb, but the campy atmosphere makes it.17:30

Godwinshelley2: I think you have my phone number – we’re out of town until the end of this month17:30

angel & fox: Wonder how much a genuine 1940s CC action figure (seated) would fetch today?17:30

LibraryJim: Yeah, real safe …. On a power pole fiddling with power lines in a lightning storm.17:30

Mike in DC: Agreed, FM.17:30

Nothere: Is that cigatrette holder licenced asa weapon?17:30

Mike in DC: Almost made an ash of himself, LJ17:31

Mike in DC: …and does anyone know what the purpose of a cigarette holder is? It seems very unnecessary.17:31

angel & fox: She stole that ciggie holder on a visit to a certain home on PennsyAve in Washington D.C. (Dirt City)17:31

Mike in DC: (unless one needs a blowgun substitute)17:32

Godwinshelley2: Wouldn’t it keep ash off your lips17:32

Godwinshelley2: and not smear your lipstick17:32

angel & fox: I’d like to have a nose like hers full of nickels (as W.C.Fields once said).17:32

Godwinshelley2: and maybe hold the smoke away from your eyes and nose17:32

LibraryJim: Love those light switches.17:32

Mike in DC: OH. I think that’s it, GS. No unsightly lipstick-on-the-cigarette thing.17:32

Nothere: And there it is one of the few dark and stormy nights in Chan history.17:32

Mike in DC: More elegant.17:32

Louise: I think the cigarette holder are also supposed to cool the smoke17:33

Cdirus: I though it had something to do with not having a filter (don’t need one with a filtered cigaret17:33

angel & fox: Recessed LED’s would eliminate so much morgue-messes.17:33

LibraryJim: A&F WC didn’t have much room to talk re: noses!17:33

Godwinshelley2: Maybe you could insert some kind of filter or flavor into them17:33

Mike in DC: Clearly we are a group of non-smokers. :)17:33

Louise: I love the lighting in this one17:33

angel & fox: LJ: That was ONE of the beauties of W.C.!17:33

Phil: Nice windowpane plaid suit there.17:33

Mike in DC: Jimmy is well-haberdashed in this flick.17:34

Phil: Now let’s see. That guy wasn’t there a second ago but now he is. Nothing odd about that.17:34

fredsmom: near miss!17:34

angel & fox: The bank put a lien on my little chickadee, & i’m on a payment plan that leaves me only chickenfeed.17:34

Godwinshelley2: No background music here17:34

angel & fox: Got a Daily Noose, bub?17:35

Mike in DC: Sort of fits with the austere lighting17:35

LibraryJim: Back door on an iron maiden?17:35

Louise: I was just thinking that Rush will be able to see this entire conversatio. Nice aspect of new system.17:35

Phil: There she is Lilly the Rhinemaiden.17:36

fredsmom: There is a crime museum in Pigeon Forge Tn which is really good-has everything from medieval times to John Wayne Gacy’s Clown costumes17:36

Mike in DC: Heiho!17:36

Godwinshelley2: Is she your valkrie, Mike?17:36

Mike in DC: She is a MAJOR heart-throb.17:36

Mike in DC: …and I rarely like women in movies.17:36

Mike in DC: swoon17:36

LibraryJim: She IS cute.17:36

angel & fox: Mister AGNEW—No relation to Spiro, or—?17:37

Mike in DC: She’s also in “Murder over New York.”17:37

Louise: I think the reporter is cuter17:37

Nothere: She puts the GRRR in Germany?17:37

LibraryJim: Louise, agreed. 17:37

Louise: Or the Gee? in Germany17:38

Nothere: What no one gonna vote for Ms. Rock?17:38

Nothere: Ah Louise has it right,17:38

LibraryJim: Louise, it’s a Ginger vs Mary Ann situation.17:38

Louise: Yes, Jim, true17:39

Mike in DC: Ah. Good point, LJ.17:39

Nothere: Or is it? Girls want bad boys, do men want bad gir;ls?17:39

Phil: I always had an eye for that Lady Mary in CC in London. Swoon.17:39

angel & fox: LJ, you are HOT TONITE!17:39

Louise: Your Lily is a liar.17:39

Mike in DC: But the reporter doesn’t lick her finger… 17:40

Phil: Lyin German.17:40

angel & fox: Think there was a potential niche for an Electric Sofa?17:40

Louise: Okay, Mike, I’ll give you the finger licking…17:40

Phil: And being German myself, I can say that.17:40

Louise: Grab the pliers17:40

Nothere: So one comment and this guy completely changes his mind. Maybe you should figure these things out, before challengeing folks on them over national radio.17:41

Mike in DC: Come on, Lily. Snip the wires…17:41

angel & fox: Call from Dumbo on the Trunk Line!17:41

fredsmom: looks like death masks on wall behind them17:41

Louise: Wew all face humiliation every day17:41

LibraryJim: Like that he took off his hat when she came up.17:41

Godwinshelley2: There was a goofy looking one in the middle on the right of the door17:41

Mike in DC: Fox must have emptied their entire store of wax figures and weird masks on this set.17:42

Phil: Ah gees guy, give it a rest.17:42

LibraryJim: That was Abby Normal.17:42

angel & fox: Mrs. Rock imagines an America in which media can be turned any whichway. Boy, was SHE ahead of her time.17:42

Nothere: I’ve heard of musical chairs, but musical electric charis?17:42

angel & fox: Notty, you’ve got ANOTHER product improvement in contention there!17:42

Louise: It’s radio: no one can see Dr. Cream’s museum17:43

danventure: Abby who?17:43

Nothere: or the sedagive even.17:44

angel & fox: They have to turn the clock to the wall from October to March cuzza Daylight time.17:44

Mike in DC: “Every bird seek its own tree. Never tree the bird.”17:44

Louise: LIGHTS17:44

fredsmom: :)17:46

Matt1: CC a wealth of knowledge17:46

angel & fox: She borrowed that hat from another movie.17:46

Louise: How many movies have death by blow gun?17:46

Nothere: 267 Louise17:47

Phil: Yeah Charlie, keep pointing at that dart one more time…17:47

Mike in DC: Tonga was the name of the Andaman Island pigmy in The Sign of Four (Sherlock Holmes). Is this an homage?17:47

Godwinshelley2: At least 2 that I think of this & Treasure Island17:47

Louise: Correct NT17:47

Nothere: And tell that guy to stop raising his eyebrow at me.17:47

angel & fox: Mike, you may got something there. I have The Complete Holmes, must lookitup.17:48

Mike in DC: Got up to see the Flay-ash?17:49

danventure: Nope, no need to look for fingerprints there.17:49

Phil: You are correct Mike. I’m a major fan of Holmes.17:49

angel & fox: He flew to the window & threw up on the sash.17:49

Mike in DC: I just wonder if the writer(s) did that as a little homage.17:49

Phil: Don’t shoot Pop – it’s your idiot son hiding in the mechanical man.17:50

angel & fox: One dummy inside another dummy: another kid ahead of his time.17:50

Mike in DC: Jimmy = klutz17:50

Mike in DC: Does this movie seem to have more of a Marx Brothers slapstick vibe than other Chans? There seem to be a lot of “gags.”17:51

angel & fox: A stikely lorry.17:51

Nothere: So at least two people have snuck in. Dr. Cream you might want to look into more security for your criminal base.17:52

angel & fox: Police calls come first.17:52

Mike in DC: Good point, NT.17:52

danventure: Ditto, NT. Regular crossroads there.17:53

angel & fox: Notty: OR a cover charge at door.17:53

angel & fox: “Suspicion is only toy of fools”. Boy, CC’d be RIGHT AT HOME today.17:54

angel & fox: Get back to where you once belonged, Jimmy.17:54

danventure: I wondered about that “toy of fools” remark myself.17:54

angel & fox: Mind your beeswax—this is a museum.17:55

LibraryJim: He deserved that.17:55

Nothere: When the manaqins are armed you need to arm the stuffed gorillias.17:55

Louise: I said “Mind your beeswax” the other day! Not sure people on Twitter knoew what it meant.17:55

angel & fox: Ya DON’T wanna marry electricity.17:56

Nothere: But the ceremony would be shockin.17:57
