June 18. Day 170. Hey Fella, you're a Turkey

It is tragically unAustralian to say so but I don't think I've ever seen a Mad Max movie, at least not all the way through.
Despite this I have a large series of quotes from Mad Max movies floating around in my head.
That there is Cundalini... and Cundalini wants his hand back! 
A fella a quick fella might have a weapon under there. l'd have to pin his head to the panel.
But my favourite was Hey fella! You're a turkey, you know that? We now recite that one every time we see a bush turkey in the street which is several times a day. There are LOTS of them, like this fella strolling across the road this morning.
All of this Mad Max stuff is my brother Michael's fault. He was a huge Mad Max fan and he used to recite huge chucks of it over and over again. Some of it is still in my head. It's funny how quotes from a movie I have never seen stick and things I desperately try to remember seem to want to get away faster than a turkey at Thanksgiving.
Mind you, the head space given to Mad Max is nothing compared with the original Star Wars. That one, used to be not just recited but acted out complete light sabre noises.
He doesn't like you. I don't like you either. You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on twelve systems. I'll be careful. 
You'll be dead!
This little one's not worth the effort. Come, let me get you something.

No blasters! No blasters! 

Quite honestly you'd have to be a real turkey commit that to memory but hey fella, I'm a turkey, you know that?

    1. Don't think there would be much to celebrate in this old boiler

  2. That is amazing, that you can quote it despite not having seen it! He is a handsome fella, shame he'll not be having that long a life....?!
