Today's Dippit!

Quote

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”


Dr. Seuss 


Joke

I don't really call for funerals that start before noon. I guess I'm just not a mourning person!


Fun Fact

Cards against Humanity bought an island in Maine to preserve wildlife. It is called Hawaii 2.


Reading Fact

Dan Brown finds hanging upside down the ultimate cure for writer’s block.


According to the author of The Da Vinci Code, the so-called inversion therapy makes you relax and concentrate better. He also has an hourglass on his writing desk which reminds him to do some push-ups, sit-ups and stretches every hour.


History Fact

Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times.

 

Julius Caesar is probably the most iconic name associated with the Romans. Likewise, his assassination and death are also highly notorious.


Due to his coup d’état of the Roman Republic and his proclamation of himself as Dictator for Life, along with his radical political views, a group of his fellow Roman senators led by his best friend Brutus assassinated him on March 15th, 44 BC.


During the assassination, Caesar was stabbed at least 23 times, before finally succumbing to his wounds.

He passed away with fabled words to his former best friend Brutus, allegedly being “you too, sweet child?”


Movie/TV Trivia

When Clue was released to theaters, each theater got one of three possible endings.


Movie/TV Quote

"What is this? A center for ants?"


Zoolander (2001)


It's difficult to overstate the influence Zoolander has had on comedy in the 21st century. The absurd concept, the over-the-top characters, the jam-packed script of lines designed to be repeated for months and years after audiences leave the theater. Plenty of quotes have taken up residence in standard pop-culture references: "Really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking," "So hot right now," "I think I'm getting the black lung, Pop," "Moisture is the essence of wetness," etc., and countless others. But the most iconic of all comes when Mugatu (Will Ferrell) reveals a scale model of the Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Who Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too. Zoolander (Ben Stiller) is outraged, and his timing in this scene -- destroying the model, standing expectantly, then asking his rhetorical line -- makes the quote stand out. More than Blue Steel or Magnum, the "center for ants" quote defines Derek Zoolander… and countless others trying to be just as funny upon encountering a small-scale model of a large object.
