What do these 3 have in common

Post by Bothead » Sat Jun 05, 2004 1:32 pm

Just something I thought up yesterday. Chances are you will all get it but I might as well put it down.

What does Peter Parker, Frodo Baggins and Harry Potter all have in common.
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye. An evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum swam across the Gulf of Mexico wearing a shark fin on his back and then planted a bomb on a boat. Think about that. Let that sink in. Now. Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

They've all been in blockbuster smash movies.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

They've all been dangling in spiderwebs? ;D (Well, I know less than nil about Harry Potter, but I seem to remember a load of spiders in the movie trailers...)
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

They're all short-arses.

They're all geeky short-arses with tragic backgrounds?

Wait, wait! I know!

All three of them are mentioned in your question?

Frodo lives in the Shire, and Pete couldn't *get* any shyer...

Wait, that leaves Harry out. D'oh. But Osborne/Green Goblin's kid is named Harry, so...

D'oh.

Close. You're on the right track. There's just one more thing left.

They're all small and annoying, but still 10 times more bearable than Wesley Crusher? ;)
