{March 9, 2012}   My Trifecta for Trifecta – it’s the last one this weekend, I promise!

I had one more idea that I really couldn’t resist putting to paper (or screen … as it were) for this weekend’s Trifextra Challenge. This organization is all about threes anyway, so why not write a third (and final?) entry?  Let’s review the rules: The submission needs to be 33 words exactly and it should best demonstrate (of all entries) the proper use for an exclamation point

Trifextra Entry #3 – The Audition

Jack: You can’t handle the truth?

Director: Good.  That’s very good, Mr. Nicholson.  But do you think you could try it again?  Only this time … you’re furious.

Jack: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

And now, just for fun, let’s take a look at that memorable scene. That’s good stuff …

OK….that is epic….I suddenly feel the urge to do the same with “More Cowbell” and Christopher Walken….but I wont….



It’s a funny concept. I also considered doing it with Network’s “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.” I just figured A Few Good Men would resonate with more people these days.



Mel says:

Call me names, make me cry, and then make me spray beer on my keyboard. Damn it, woman!



You blame me for beer splattering on your keyboard quite a bit. Have you ever considered that it might be YOU who has the problem?

It’s never WATER splattering on the keyboard. Or gingerale. Milk! Hmmmmmmm ……



Mel says:

I’m not a big fan of milk, unless it has chocolate and ice cream in it. Water is meh and gingerale is for when I’m sick. :)



Hamza says:

Definitely the winner of the three.



El Guapo says:

PERFECT!!!
Did you go for the 3 because it’s trifecta?



Did you READ the title, my friend?



Dana says:

Perfection! You’re absolutely right, no way this line would have become as famous had Jack said it in a questioning tone, heh. ;-)



Would’ve been funny to hear though, wouldn’t it?



good one! Jack should come with his very own exclamation mark if you ask me.



Well, he’s always the same character … and yet somehow it always works.



booguloo says:

You just keep them coming. Very cool.



Thanks! I was lucky. I had a good day. Sometimes, the well runs painfully dry.



Haha! I like this one, too.



Thanks again. And please feel free to include a link here to your entry as well. A beautiful little post.



Thanks for linking up to this weekend’s Trifecta. We’re happy to have all three of your submissions–and anyone else’s. The official rule is that you can have up to three submissions per challenge. I really liked this one. It kind of shows the importance of the exclamation point, doesn’t it? Hope to see you back again on Monday.



Thanks. Good to know.



El Guapo says:

Congratulations, ODNT!
Great win!



Yay! Thanks, Guap. A feather in my cap …



I absolutely love this. Besides who doesn’t remember that famous scene with fondness? Well done and congratulations on the win! Well deserved.



Thanks, Mrs. One Day. It was a fun little exercise.
