And then he told her he loved her in Lord of The Rings

The scene: At a pub with the Duke and a single male friend of his, who we will hereby refer to as Alex. We have just exchanged a few words with two women at the table to the right, one of whom Alex finds rather fetching.


Alex: That girl kind of reminds me of the guy from The Matrix.

The Duke: Who, Keanu Reeves?

Alex: No, the other guy.

Me: Lawrence Fishburne?

Alex: No, you know, the Agent Smith guy.

Me: She reminds you of Hugo Weaving?!?!

Alex: Yeah!

The Duke: Dude, I hope this is something you already know, but seriously, don't ever, ever tell a girl that she looks like Hugo Weaving.

So you're saying Alex is gay? I'm not judging or anything...I'm just saying.

Oh. And totally looked up who Hugo was. That was awful. Poor girl.

Heh!

"Mister Anderson!"

Back in my temping days, I used to work with a voluptuous young lady whose legs, body and lustrous blonde hair were the impure fantasies of every red-blooded male in the place (myself included). However, when pressed by my colleagues on which celebrity I thought she most resembled, I was forced to conclude: Leonardo DiCaprio.

Everybody murmured agreement in a "oh yeaaah..." kind of way, and I think it successfully torpedoed a lot of the fantasies previously mentioned. It certainly weirded me out a bit and made me pause for a lot of thought before hitting on her...

And don't ever tell Hugo Weaving he looks like a girl.

Considering the yaoi fangirls in the Matrix fandom (look up the term Foe Yay), some might not see it as that bad if they really think about it.

God how I wish I were making that up.

I suppose that's better than comparing her to an orc.

Ha, I bet Hugo must be flattered. A girl looking like Hugo Weaving! But hey, I know a woman who looks a lot like Winston Churchill! And no, that's in no way a compliment!
