Long-time Blogography readers will know of my good friend Bad Robert. He was one of the earliest supporters of my blog, one of my very first commenters, and has been providing fodder for my entries for years. If you don't know Bad Robert, then you should read my infamous "Blue Balls Button" entry to get a feel for what I have to deal with (metaphorically speaking).
For the past few weeks, Robert has been calling me up at random times during the day and night... screaming "SNAKES ON A MUTHERF#@%ING PLANE!"... then hanging up. To say he is psyched to see this movie is an understatement of gargantuan proportions. I can only guess that this kind of insane behavior will escalate until the film actually drops in two days.
This morning as I am getting ready for work, my mobile phone rings and I see it's Robert calling. I prepare myself for being screamed at, but the actual conversation was quite different...
Robert: Did you know that you came up with the idea for Snakes on a Mutherf#@%ing Plane??
Dave: Errr... no? What are you talking about?
Robert: I was Google searching and your blog came up. I clicked on it, and there it was... YOU came up with the idea for Snakes on a Mutherf#@%ing Plane back in 2004!
Dave: Wow. I'm going to have to hunt down Samuel L. Jackson and get my mutherf#@%ing check!
Robert: No doubt. And don't forget who told you about it when you get mutherf#@%ing paid.
I had no idea what he was talking about until I looked through my archives.
And there it was...
Bad Robert was right. I DID come up with the idea on mutherf#@%ing July 19th, 2004. Don't believe me? Then go and read it for yourself!
Somebody is getting mutherf#@%ing sued.
UPDATE: Turns out Robert wasn't the first to bring this to my attention... I totally overlooked the comment from Cat that was left earlier this week! Great. Now she's going to want to get mutherf#@%ing paid too!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Hmm you do realize now, that when you see it, you’ll have to review it from an “author’s” perspective. Who would you have cast instead, who was overpaid, who had to visit the casting couch to get a part at all, etc 😉
Hmm….Dave needs to get a lot of mutherf#@%ing money.
And lunch w/ Samuel L. Jackson.
The sequel: Lawyers on a mutherf%$#ing blog!
Kyra… All I know is that Samuel L. Jackson would be co-starring with Elizabeth Hurley in MY version of the mutherf#@%ing movie!
Adena… True dat! I wants to get mutherf#@%ing paid!
Jenny… Don’t you mean “Mutherf#@%ing Lawers on a Blog?” Let’s be sure we put the mutherf#@%ing emphasis on those who truly deserve it! 🙂
GANKED ON A PLANE! AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!111
I think I Mutherf#@%ing love Robert! (Sorry Dave)
Just don’t forget all of us Mutherf#@%ing little people who supported you when you were a Mutherf#@%ing nobody with cute Mutherf#@%ing cartoons.
I am so going to wear my mutherf#@%cking Blogography shirt when I see it in a silent protest until you get FAT mutherf#@%cking paid!!
I can’t tell you how much I want to see this movie. Like, more than anything even remotely dramatic, comedic, or action/adventuric.
Look what this is doing to my motherf#@%ing spelling.
I would be bringing that to someone’s attention to get your rightful share of the mutherf#@%ing profits of this mutherf#@%ing movie.
Always knew you were cool, Dave.
I know a good lawyer that you can use to sue those mutherf#@%ing bastards who stole your idea! The nerve!
In qualities’ list of Dave, we should add “visionary”. I am wondering if you are real ? A man who combines all these qualities could not be real… I think it is too much !! 🙂
PS. If you want to see the french bill…
Your blue balls blog from Feb. 10, 2006 was too funny.
So today we had Bad Roberts, Blue balls and Snakes…enough?
Ok, I know heat is not a good idea for down there. That’s why it’s hanging there. Try to get away from body heat.
No hair dryer ever.
My personal favorite- vanilla baby powder.
So are you going to see it? My tickets are paid and I’m going tonight at 10 p.m. you snake lovin’ muthafu&*a!!
Sorry… that was bad, wasn’t it?
The post from 2004 is the funniest damn thing I’ve seen. You should publish your DaveToons in a collection! I passed your blog along to the CNBC.com director in hopes of contacting you to do Davetoons for a social commentator section of the website but they felt the blog really wasn’t in line with what they are putting together at this point. However, in a year they hope to link to some cool stuff. Let’s keep our fingers crossed! “Cool stuff” can easily end up consisting of online crossword puzzles or tv guide.com.
I guess as long as you don’t keep your mutherf#@%ing python in a bottle of mutherf#@%ing hair conditioner you can sneak it on the mutherf#@%ing plane.
Will you still talk to all of us peons after you’re a multimillionaire from this movie?
I don’t have anything especially fabulous to say, other than – I want to see this movie, and I enjoy saying “mutherf#@%ing.”
The best was seeing Sam Jackson on Jon Stewart the other night. Sam was dropping the Mother F&*$#@r all over the place. Sam and Jon genuinely like each other. They shared a hug at the intro and chatted like Mother F&^$@#n friends the whole time. Towards the end, was the best:
Jon: Do you die in the end? (of the movie)
Sam: C’mon! I’m the Mother F&^%%#n hero! No way.
Jon: Cool. You know whay that’s a good thing?
Sam & Jon start to smile and then grin broadly.
Sam & Jon (together, slapping hands): SEQUEL!
Everyone is laughing. See it on ComedyCentral.com. Infectious!
Wow – looks like everybody was on the mutherf#@%ing ball on this one Dave!
Looks like it’s your mutherf#@%ing ass I should be kickin then! This movie has to be retarded. How could it not be?
IT’S GOT SAMUEL L. JACKSON IN IT!! How could it not be cool? 🙂
Holy shit I think you flew with my cube neighbor. (Referring to your older post).
Too bad you really didn’t have a snake on the plane…
I think this blog entry surpassed “Goodfellas” and “Pulp Ficton” in the number of f-bomb drops per paragraph.
I was going to avoid this movie, but a good friend, whose movie opnions I respect, said it was a must to go see. So I off I go to see this snake movie.
And Dave, let us know when you get that royalty check from Samuel L.
There was a skit on SNL a couple seasons back where there was a cobra on a plane. Ever since I heard of the Jackson-starring flick, I immediately thought back to the sketch. Anyway, there’s probably a good bunch of people claiming credit on the idea! Good luck on getting some of that Hollywood fat cash.
