Alright, Hands Up

This thing IS sick, I know… But it’s also terribly funny. I guess I just like anything that’s at least a bit absurd. And I love absurd jokes, those are the best if you ask me. And even if a joke (or anything, really) is not absurd- don’t worry, I’ll find an absurd element to laugh at.

So, I just had to post this clip. I love Gary Oldman and Sean Penn, and they’re both great in this (though I enjoyed Gary’s character more), and the film itself (“State of Grace”) was not that bad at all (though I’d never watch a movie with a tagline “The Irish Mob in New York” if it wasn’t for Gary and Sean).

Of course, this is not a Monty Python kind of an absurd joke… It’s not an absurd joke per se at all. However, I find the little things so amusing, the look on Sean Penn’s face, pictures of naked women on the refrigerator and – for some reason – the best of all, “they’re in, they’re in” line.

    Redundancy is the unnecessary use of either needless, tautological, pleonastic or superfluous text, by which one repeats, in duplication, the same, identical, aforesaid things over and over and over and over again, beyond what would be needed or required to explain, or make comprehensible, the intended or signified meaning of that which one wishes to convey. These things can be and most likely will be referred to as being Redundant. Customarily, it is usually common in redundancy to repeat, sometimes with different phrasing or words, the same idea or reasoning, thus restating one’s thoughts, sometimes paraphrasing oneself and effectively saying the same thing twice, or double, or thrice (three times; triply so;three times approximately the same), or any number of excessive, unnecessary restatements greater than zero.

    I took a drive today
    Time to emancipate
    I guess it was the beatings… made me wise
    But I’m not about to give thanks, or apologize
    I couldn’t breathe, holdin’ me down
    Hand on my face, pushed to the ground
    Enmity gauged, united by fear
    Forced to endure what I could not forgive…
