It's Time For Saturday Nite MST3K Trivia!

The late Charles B Pierce (pictured above) wrote, directed, produced and starred in our all-time favorite Mystery Science episode, Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues...(aka The Barbaric Beast of Boggy Creek Part II, Boggy Creek Part II).  The guy wore a lot of hats, including this green one.

So, yeah, that's pretty trivial, but here's the good part...

He also wrote one of the most quoted lines in movie history.  Well, according to wikipedia, anyway. (and you can believe them because they're always right)

The phrase "go ahead, make my day" was written by Charles B. Pierce, an Independent Film Maker who is credited with "story by" in the film "Sudden Impact". The actual origins of the phrase came from Pierce's father Mack, who used to tell him as a child, "just let me come home one more day, without you mowing that lawn, son just go ahead.....make my day"


Please excuse us now as we go back to enjoying our classic piece of Cinema Americana. Is the popcorn ready yet?

If Lizards Could Talk...

...this one would be saying, "Thanks for saving me from the cat from Apartment A3--I was a goner for sure!"

No problem, man.  Frankly, I don't like that little bastard.  He's been trouble ever since he moved in.  Hope my relocation effort put you in a better place.
