When I did my top 10 quotable movies last week I somehow managed to miss out Anchorman. I don’t know how this happened but I am deeply ashamed. So in honour of one my all time favourite comedies, I have decided to devote a whole post to my favourite catchphrases from the mouths of Ron Burgundy and his news crew. Fuck you. San Diego.
Real world application: My friends Justin and Brett once ended up staying in the red light district during a city break to Amsterdam and apparently declared nightly that they were going “back to their home on whore island”.
Real world application: I might use this every time I have a new outfit. Reports are unconfirmed.
Real world application: After pretty much every evening when I say I am going to go our for one drink after work.
Real world application: Great for neutralising a silly argument.
Real world application: Back in the day my flatmates and I actually hosted a “dirty pirate hooker” themed party. We decided to change it from smelly to dirty as in the Xtina definition because no one wants to be smelly… even if they’re pretending to be a pirate hooker.
Real world application: Believe it or not a colleague actually said this to me during a meeting the other day when we were trying to debunk some or other nonsense myth that someone was trying to feed us.
Real world application: I instantly regret a lot of my decisions. Many of them about how big the weights are that I’ve put on my bar for body pump class.
Real world application: Milk is always a bad choice. Yuck!
Real world application: The “that’s amazing” bit gets wheeled out pretty much every time something impresses me.
Real world application: I work with a lot of statistical analysis so every time we have an assumption that doesn’t pay off or someone messes up a calculation this is the perfect quote.
