Godwinshelley2: Does that tie really go with his suit?

Matt1: Johnny!

Nothere: Whose tie Dr. BEnsons?

Godwinshelley2: Yes – the paisley with the pinstripe?

Matt1: Looks like Chans PJ’s

Pinkflamingo: Does this movie gave the disclaimer that no animals were hurt during the making of this film. With all the slapping and whatever going on

Godwinshelley2: Maybe it’s a diamond pattern instead of paisley – still has a lot of texture going on

Nothere: So wahat about the lady front row left? We like her outfit?

Godwinshelley2: I missed her

Nothere: Louise

Nothere: Has a feathe in her cap

Nothere: We caught the pharoh in the bathroom.

Mike in DC: Delicately opening the centuries-old relic…

Godwinshelley2: There is a gift exchange at HP Lovecraft Historical Society – and I am thinking of doing something pyramidal -since HP Lovecraft worked with Houdini about Escape from the Pharohs

Matt1: Looks like they needed the Weather Channel App

Nothere: Theysaid he was an archeologist. No one said he was a good one.

Pinkflamingo: Watch that photographer. Think he’s going to be trouble

Matt1: <cough>

Nothere: So your a member of the society God?

Mike in DC: Does Mason rate a tincan?

Godwinshelley2: A lifetime member

Pinkflamingo: Don’t drink don’t drink

Godwinshelley2: Their gift exchange is the highlight of my holiday season usually

Mike in DC: Oh oh.

Nothere: Well he die months before the film so that’s one long kick.

Mike in DC: *thud*

Godwinshelley2: I do like the suit on the lady

Mike in DC: True, NT. The can probably has a statute of limitations.

Matt1: Can was burried in the sand

Godwinshelley2: Any word on why Keye did this instead of Karloff?

Nothere: Prepare the new can

Matt1: <tin can>

Nothere: Lecture is over. Not long till Lous Long.

Pinkflamingo: Love Keyes mustache. Very dignified

Nothere: Why do I keep hearing someone say pop?

Matt1: Seems odd, no? NY

Matt1: NT

Nothere: Now Lotus don’t make that long face.

Nothere: A piece of apple pie as her whole lunch for a month? Someone fee that poor girl.

Matt1: Foo!

Mike in DC: LTF!

Nothere: LTF?

Mike in DC: Lee Tong Foo

Nothere: Ah. So is this a one way street?

Mike in DC: Who? The inspector? Street?

Nothere: Correct

Mike in DC: Street = not the sharpest knife in the drawer

Godwinshelley2: Usually it’s Chan inside and someone outside threatening him or his visitor

Nothere: Aha ut was Dutch Elm disease.

Mike in DC: CPR?

Mike in DC: How sweet. They both saw “light in the shrubbery.”

Nothere: Light on the shrubbery nudge nudge wink wink

Nothere: And now a Spaceballs moment. Comb the dessert.

Godwinshelley2: A Brooks fan I see

Mike in DC: Is that a scroll in your pocket? Or are you just glad to see me?

Nothere: My scroll leads to Eternal Fire Mike

Nothere: So this guy wishes he had a cell phone camera

Mike in DC: Oh no

Mike in DC: Was there day care in 1940?

Godwinshelley2: You just left the kids to their own devices

Godwinshelley2: The older kids took care of the younger

Nothere: Oh I’m sure she could find someone to watch them for a couple of hours.
