Meme: Movies You Force on Friends

To me, a good characteristic of a meme is that it tells you about someone, whether that someone is you or the people that respond to that meme. This one, snarfed from venedotia, is just that type of a meme:

Name 5 movies that you force other people to watch (trilogies count as one, a TV season counts as one):

  1. Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
  2. Marx Brothers: Monkey Business, Horse Feathers, or Duck Soup
  3. Kentucky Fried Movie
  4. The Great Race
  5. Atomic Shakespeare from Moonlighting Season 3

My runner up is Harvey.

You’re probably wondering about the absence of Mel Brooks or Monty Python. That’s likely because if you’re my friend, you’ve probably seen those already… but not what I’ve listed.

OK. Your turn…

Always good to have breakfast memes and toast before a roadtrip; we’re off to Tucson via Palm Springs today.
