Some Homer Simpson Quotes...

Lisa: Dad, what's a Muppet?
Homer: Well, it's not quite a mop, it's not quite a puppet, but man...[laughs hysterically]  
So to answer your question, I don't know.

Homer: Hey, we didn't have a message on our answering machine when we left. How very odd.

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No!
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal!
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

Homer: Please don't eat me! I have a wife and kids. Eat them!

Homer: Bad bees! Get away from my sugar! Ow! Ow!! Oh, they're defending themselves somehow!

SCHOOL NEWS


Learned something cool at school this week... 
In the past Women and girls were not being picked
to be in music orchestras. 
Were boys better at playing instruments???
NO!

Turns out that the judges were unfairly judging men higher.  So how did they fix this???
They put the music players behind a screen so they were judged only on their music.




Got 2 A's last Quarter.  Yeah Boy.
Guess my 25 minutes of studying really helped out.

The month we have a movie Review.

THE BLACK HOLE

 

The Black Hole is a movie about...you guessed it, a Black Hole.  It was made back in 1979 and
is still very cool and high tech. There are a lot of robots and cool spaceships and other neat things.
Overall, it is a fun little movie that everyone should see.

Here is a memorable quote from the movie:

Lieutenant Charles Pizer : "Vincent, were you programmed to bug me?"
V.I.N.CENT : "No sir, to educate you."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Here is what some of our friends thought about it...



Storm Trooper: I thought it was good, but not as good as Star Wars.



Bob:  Wow.  I was blown away.  I can't wait to see it again and again.  Oh, and I hate Maximillian.

Vincent:  This was the best move I have ever seen!!!!!  I looked great.

 

Kim: The movie was good, but it needed more killer monkeys.

The Black Knight: The Black Night was impressed and awed by the special effects.
The Black Knight will tell all of his knight friends to go see it.
The Black Knight is the best knight ever.  Yes...yes he is.
