And then there's the one about a struggling actor. She finally gets her big break and is given a walk-on role in a play. Her only line is "Hark, is that a cannon I hear?" uttered, presumably, after a cannon shot is heard.
She is very excited. She spends the entire week rehearsing her one and only line.
"Hark, is that a cannon I hear?"
Everywhere she goes. "Hark, is that a cannon I hear?"
Finally, the evening of the play arrives and our girl is ready.
The scene is on. The stage is hers! At last.
The cannon noise catches her by surprise.
She jumps back, whimpering "What the **** was that?"
Now that's the perfect diet slash weight loss metaphor!
The picture, by the way, is me after work last night, waiting for the locksmith.
Seems I locked the keys in the car with the motor running.
It only took a couple of hours extra.
"What the **** was that!"
