American Graffiti was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award (it lost to The Sting). I always thought it was an overlooked cult type film.

It was the big film that gave Lucas the clout to make Star Wars wasn't it?

No, but Harrison Ford was working as a carpenter on it and Lucas gave him a Star Wars script after being impressed by his wood.

It was a huge hit though, for the budget

I think I might leave too, as a gesture of solidarity with NJ, who was easily one of the best posters on 'ere, the funny fucker.
I've had my fair share of insults flung at me  an' all, and just the other day some wise guy posted a picture of one of the most beautuful women in the world juxtaposed with an image of top 80s Channel 4 Puppet Pob. That was particularly hard to take.
Wait for me, NJ!

Funerals seemingly cost thousands of pounds, so given I'll never be able to afford to buy a house and I don't drive so won't ever need to buy a car, chances are dying will be the most expensive thing I ever do.

From the Rush Hour with Love, the 90s Republica single, is a play on From Russia With Love.

Jez and Super Hans’ bandname “coming up for Blair” is a pun on “coming up for air”.

There's a secret meta-pun in there too, Blair being Orwell's real name, and Coming Up For Air being one of his novels. CHRIST I'M BORING BORED

The reason why upside down horse shoes are lucky is because when you look at them from the lucky side they’re not actually upside down.

That’s a nonsense response.

That Tina Turner song whose only lyrics are “rolling rolling rolling rolling rolling on a river” is not called “rolling rolling rolling rolling rolling in a river”.

I've genuinely been calling it Rolling rolling rolling on the river my entire life.

Neigh.

Antisemitic to pronounce it like that.

It's not even her (and Ike's) song, Creedence Clearwater Revival having had an international hit with it two years before.

Jemaine Clement has reminded me of someone for years but I could never quite recall who, but today I did: Leonard from Shortland St.

Also:

Quote
In the animated series BoJack Horseman, BoJack looked up to Secretariat as a child and would go on to star in a biopic about him. Margo Martindale, who plays herself in a recurring role on the show, also had a role in the Disney film Secretariat mentioned above.

Ferberising an alarm clock is ineffectual.

There are few things more unpleasant than someone else's fart with a Napoleon complex.

How does this Napoleon complex manifest in such an horrific scenario?
