    Super Troopers is one of those too stupid to turn off movies. My Bucks barista loves to yell out, "A liter of coffee, FOR A COP!"

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    Colors for best police drama.

    Smokey and the Bandit cause of the wisdom of Buford T Justice. "Junior.......when you raid a cathouse, you take the piano player too."

    And Police Academy.......because every one of us knew at least one person in the academy who fit one of those characters. Every class has at least a Tackleberry.
    Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.

    Super Troopers- Still funny every time I watch it.
    I also admit to liking the police academy movies.
    While totally unrealistic in every way, shape and form, the Bad Boys movies entertain me.
    And every Dirty Harry movie.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    Gorky Park was a real treat....and it was both a cop movie and a spy movie....loved it! I will pretty much watch Lee Marvin in anything.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    He doesn't even stop eating. Best cop scene. Ever.

    Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    Ah, The Choirboys. The book that started it all for me. I was a voracious reader as a kid - read this one at about the tender age of ten and was LE bound afterward. The Onion Field is another classic.

    Smokey and the Bandit, particuarly number two. The desert chase scene and ensuing car carnage is a work of fucking art....
