Friday Blogthing: In memorium

We children of the 80s continue to age as the the pop-culture icons of our generation reap the ultimate reward in store for all of us.

You've probably already heard of the death of director John Hughes. Hughes' contribution to movie making arts may not be very notable, but his contribution to pop culture is titanic. Some of my favorite characters and best one-liners were from Hughes movies (Uncle Buck: "Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.")

Anyway, I suspect we'll all be reliving our adolescence through Hughes work to some extent today. And to help get you started, here's a quick quiz.
Which John Hughes Character Are You?

Your Result
You are Clark Griswold (from National Lampoon's Vacation)! You're full of optimism and boundless energy, and no one loves a good family trip more. No one else can swear a blue streak like you either, Sparky!

  2. Why am I not at all surprised by your result (given your penchant for stealing your friends' parents' Ferraris)?


Your turn to riff...
