Go ahead Punk - Make My Day

Thriftcriminal is getting revenge for me making him queasy in my previous post and so he tagged me with this meme

If you had to select celebrities/actors to play the parts in the story of your life today (including yourself!), who would it be and why - can be based on looks or personality!


  • List the people who would play you and all involved
  • Give credit to the person who tagged you
  • Link your answers to the original blog (trackback?)
  • Nominate four more people to have a go

Me: Clint Eastwood (I'm the strong silent type but push me too far and feel my wrath)

My missus: Salma Hayek (she has that whole Latin temperament to boot)

My brothers: (they ain't heavy) Withnail & I - Marwood (Paul McGann) and Withnail (Richard E Grant) a troublesome pair if ever there was one.

My Sis: Janis Joplin (not an actress I know) but a musical genius like big sis

My folks: Ma and Pa Walton (hardworking and wholesome)

I now have to tag 4 others so here goes:

VE with your creative talents this should be a sinch!

Conortje - your already famous so this will be easy!

- you're just back from boasting about your holidays - this'll fix ya!

Primalsneeze - I'm expecting lots of corny puns

Withnail and I,Go ahead Punk - Make My Day, What is a blog meme?

Crikey, those are two scary lookin' brothers! Mine would kneecap me if I suggested they looked like that!

I hate to disappoint your Quickness, but I do neither tags nor memes. Corporate policy decided long ago at a night-long board meeting in Sneezey Towers. I slept through most of it so other stuff could have been decided I don't know about.

ps. Withnail & I = Best movie ever

You rotter! As if I'm not busy enough running my fan club, visiting the beautician, negotiating contracts with the top film companies etc. And now a meme to think about! Perhaps I'll get my PA to do it. Actually I seem to remember being a party to the corporate policy at Sneezey Towers. But I'll give it a thought when I've got five minutes to spare....

Mmmmm Salma, I still have visions of her in Dusk til Dawn, dancing and pouring beer down her leg. What a beer delivery mechanism! :-)

Xbox4NappyRash August 06, 2008 6:55 am  

I'm curious about your musical genius sister!

VE August 06, 2008 10:35 am  

Fool. You have NO IDEA to what I'll apply this to! Ok, neither do I but I will warn you...I use these for my amusement and I will bend the rules. Look for this on Thursday or Friday depending on how big of an effort I turn it into.

@ Baino: Do you know the movie 'Withnail & I'? - absolute classic!

@ Primal: Wish I had one of those policies myself - may have to convene an emergency board meeting.

@ Nick: Maybe you can include your PA and beautician in the cast!

@ Thrifty: This would be that scene link here

@ Xbox: big sis was one of those musically gifted kids but is quite happy to just play a sesh down the local diddly idle now

@ VE: oooh I like the sound of this! can't wait!

Kate August 06, 2008 1:09 pm  

Oh dear!! What did I start here, but having said that it is all good tho I am a bit scared of the look in your brother's eyes!
Nice mum and dad!!! ;-)

Megan August 06, 2008 4:47 pm  

Nice picks and I look forward to VE's as well.

I'd have Hugh Laurie play me. Someone told me that he looks somewhat like me which was a refreshing chnage from Frodo the hobbit. Actually I'd like this character Dr House to play me :-)

Thriftcriminal August 07, 2008 3:59 am  

I followed the link. That's the scene alright. Can't stand up now. Still haven't changed out of cycling gear.

Quickroute August 07, 2008 11:52 am  

@ Kate: Aha! So I have you to blame for all this. ever heard of kharma?!!!!

@ Megan: Thanks - looking forward to VE's too

@ Conortje: Frodo sounds better to me - We'll get much more mileage out of it :-)

@ Thrifty: tap it with a cold spoon!

Nomadic Matt August 07, 2008 1:25 pm  

i keep see this meme's all over the web lately...it's a new trend...still don't get them....

Kate August 07, 2008 3:00 pm  

Kharma? are we time travelling here?
@ Matt - I don't understand either it started as a drunken thought and it just escalated! Can't fault it tho - its quite funny now!!!!!

Quickroute August 08, 2008 10:25 am  

@ Nomadic Matt:It's the blog version of 'Tag your it!'

@ Kate:My crystal ball tells me you could have a few more meme's in your future!

Kate August 08, 2008 11:38 am  

mmmmm you are a bit of a fortune teller? Make them fun ones!!!!

English Mum August 08, 2008 2:42 pm  

QR: You're married to Salma? Blimey, I'd never go out (and I'm a girl!!) x

Quickroute August 09, 2008 12:37 am  

@Kate: I'm just teasing - sort of! :-)

@EM: It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it!

Quickroute August 09, 2008 1:26 am  

Kudos to VE for his follow thru on this meme or themthem as he likes to call them!

Nick August 09, 2008 5:16 am  

Okay, meme done. A bit skimpy I'm afraid but an interesting mix of stars! And my agent tells me it's a sure-fire blockbuster.

Quickroute August 10, 2008 10:53 am  

@Nick: Interesting mix indeed - from almost royalty to commoners!
