I feel like Kim Basinger grabbing Jack Nicholson's lapels and breathing, "I...love...PURPLE."
@lilithsaintcrow So, you feel like you're flattering a homicidal madman who has you in his power so that you can buy time to escape or be rescued?
@starbreaker Don't we all feel that way?
@lilithsaintcrow Actually, I feel like one of the henchmen. I know the guy in purple might gun me down or gas me to death for any reason, and at any time. But if I try to escape he'll hunt me down. And the other crazy dude will beat the shit out of me just because I chose the wrong line of work and the wrong boss. So I'm screwed no matter what.
@starbreaker "Gentlemen, let's broaden our minds. Lawrence?" Or, the ever-classic, "Bob? Gun."
Yeah, the henchmen always get the worst deal.
@lilithsaintcrow Well, to be honest I should have used "flunkies". More inclusive, you know?
@starbreaker It's been a while since I've seen a female flunky get any real airtime, though. Patriarchy bites ass, but I guess it saves the ladies from that particular tiny hassle. *snork*
