Ridiculously Literal Memes

I’ve always loved absurd humor. When I was a teenager, my friends and I were watching a WWII movie at a theater when the sound suddenly went out. On the screen there was a brief shot of a cat (it didn’t appear again). Then a soldier pointed and spoke (still no sound). So my friends and I started shouting dialogue: Soldier: “Look, a cat, sir!” Captain: “So?” Soldier: “So, the Nazis are using cats as spies, sir!” Captain: “Capture that cat and bring it in for questioning!” Soldier: “It got away, sir!” Captain: “Well, then, go shoot some Nazis!” When the sound came back on 20 minutes later, the audience gave us a standing ovation! Ridiculously literal substitute captions and dialogue are still among my favorite forms of absurd humor. You too? Enjoy!

  4. I had a date in high school with a guy who took me to a parking lot next to a drive-in theater. We watched the movie with no sound and provided our own script. He was cheap, but he was creative. #thriftydates

    I was laughing at the story about you and your friends when the sound went out at the movie theater. Doing “Mystery Science Theatre 3000” before the TV show came out.
