I'm not that hip, apparently

Ok, ok, ok... I admit it. I missed the Snakes on a Plane uh... train... or whatever. I never really knew anything about it until yesterday. I mean, last week or the week before I started noticing a lot of Snakes on a Plane logos for user icons, but I didn't think anything of it. Finally, yesterday, I'd had enough and I goo'd it. I now know all I need to know about Snakes on a Plane. For those who are where I was yesterday, let me fill you in on what is now known about this strange phenomenon:

1. It's about snakes.
2. They're on a plane.
3. Samuel L. Jackson

At first I was thinking, "Whaaaaaaaat? Retarded." but now I'm rather intrigued. In fact, I'm gonna go see that shit the day it comes out. Why not? I like movies with snakes (hello, Indiana Jones!) and I like movies with planes. And I especially like movies with Samuel L. Jackson.

You know what bugs me though? Apparently, the internet pushed really hard to get the studio to have Sam say "I want these motherfucking snakes off the motherfucking plane," or "There are motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane," or something to that effect, and the studio did it! That's really awesome in and of itself, but it would have been waaaaaay funnier to have him say something like, "Yes, the snakes deserve to die and I hope they burn in hell!!"

Anyway.... yeah. Snakes. Plane. I'm going.

snakes on a plane!

from wikipedia: At one point, the film's working title was altered to Pacific Air Flight 121. In August 2005, a perturbed Samuel L. Jackson told an interviewer, "We're totally changing that back. That's the only reason I took the job: I read the title."

Yep. I don't care how bad this movie turns out to be, I'm going, and dragging Dr. Tully Monster with me, simply because it's Snakes On A Plane.

Who knew The Internet's collective level of maturity was that of an eight-year-old boy?

Don't answer that.

This may just be the best thread in the history of your proud employer.

Also, I'm taking a science class where we launch weather balloons to high altitudes to do experiments, and we decided our group name today would be: SNAKES... on a BALLOON. Word.

Is there a projected opening night? I should take off work and get drunk in your living room.
