Steven Spielberg was discussing his new project - an action docudrama about famous composers.

Nicholas Cage, Steven Segal, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger were all present. Spielberg strongly desired the box office oomph of these superstars, so he was prepared to allow them to
select whatever composers they would portray, as long as they were very famous.

"Well," started Cage, "I've always admired Mozart. I would love to play him."

"Beethoven has always been my favorite, and my image would improve if people saw me playing the piano" said Willis. "I'll play him."

"I've always been partial to Strauss and his waltzes," said Segal. "I'd like to play him."

Spielberg was very pleased with these choices. "Sounds splendid." Then, looking at Schwarzenegger, he asked, "Who do you want to be, Arnold?"

So Arnold says........

"I'll be Bach."

i like that one.

kudos on quitting the cigs (again). drink lots of coke, chew lots of gum. keep your face and brian occupied.

let me know when you're ready for your next A&A lesson.

Er.. actually, lots of Coke is a real bad idea when trying to quit smoking. Juice and water are good. I am now drinking about 500000000000000 glasses of water a day. Good thing I have a large bladder.

that's a good one.
i didn't know you were off cigs. me too! 2 weeks now except for totally falling off the wagon last weekend at the chili cookoff and at AJ's wedding party. purely celebratory says i!
this week so far so good. best of luck.
i find not drinking beer helps a lot.

Karl said...

I intentionally waited until after AJ's wedding to quit. Good luck to you too. No more big bashes coming up, are there?

Rye said...

if there are, i'll probably smoke again.

Robin said...

Then I guess Karl doesn't want one of these nice Davidoff cigarettes I have here ... *puff* *puff*

Karl said...

Naw, my sales manager just bet me that I couldn't go ten days. I'm all pissed off and into it now.

I'll still have to lay off the beer, just to be safe.

Kerl - when you have another joke like that, I'll be Haydn. Get it? Ok, nevermind.
